Catlett, Hervey T.

Hervey T. Catlett, age 44 years, died at the home of his mother, Mrs. Fannie Catlett at 8:30 oclock, Sunday morning, December 19, 1926, after an illness of more than three months.

Mr. Catlett was taken ill at his home in Fayetteville last September and for several weeks his condition was so critical that little hope for his recovery was entertained; but he rallied and passed what was believed to be the crisis and began to slowly to regain his strength. Some three weeks ago, with his wife and daughter, he cam to Dardanelle on a visit to his mother and for a time continued to improve. However, he suffered a relapse some ten days ago, since which time he grew slowly but steady weaker until the end came Sunday morning.

The Funeral service was held at the home of Mrs. Fannie Catlett at 2 oclock Monday afternoon, being conducted by Rev. Sam B. Wiggins, pastor of the Methodist Church. Interment was made in Brearley Cemetery, and despite the inclement weather, a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends followed the remains to their last resting place, and covered the new-made grave with the rarely beautiful canopy of floral offerings as a last sad tribute of respect to deceased and his family.

Hervey Catlett was born in Dardanelle, where he grew to manhood. Quiet and unassuming, he was yet sincere, diligent and loyal, and he held not only the respect and confidence, but likewise the affection of all who knew him.

On December 29, 1909, Mr. Catlett was united in marriage to Miss Bertha Adams, of this city. To this union one child, Bertha Mae, was born. Shortly after his marriage, Mr. Catlett accepted a position as traveling salesman, and followed his profession until the time of his last illness. Exceptional ability and faithful attention to his duties won for him rapid promotion and during the last fifteen years he has successfully represented several of the largest and best-known national manufacturers. He was of a bright happy, disposition, and rarely indeed could Fate deal him a blow that marred his sunny smile or disturbed his cheerful temperament. Devoted to this family, loyal ot his employers, faithful to his friends, Hervey Catlett was a good and useful man and citizen and his loss is keenly felt.

Beside his mother, wife and daughter, Mr. Catlett is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Kate Crawford of Russellville, Misses Jennie Riggin and Rill Catlett of this city; and one brother, S. G. Catlett of this city, to each of whom, in their dark hour of sorrow, our hearts out in tenderest sympathy. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Published in Post-Dispatch, Dardanelle, Arkansas: 12-23-1926)
