Burial will be in the White Plains Cemetery Friday afternoon, with Lunsford Mortuary of Cuthbert in charge of arrangements. Miss Howell, a former newspaper owner and teacher, is survived by two brothers, Henry and Edward L. Howell of Cuthbert, and a sister, Mrs. G. A. Camp of Atlanta. Miss Howell formerly owned The Cuthbert Leader, a predecessor of The Cuthbert Times. She was a public school teacher for awhile but spent the greater part of her life as a music teacher. She was organist for the First Baptist Church of Cuthbert for 25 years before retiring several years ago."
- The family called her "Eva"
From "The Cuthbert Times" Nov 29, 1956:
"Miss Mildred Eva Howell, 81 Esteemed Cuthbert Citizen, Dies"
"Final rites were held Friday, Nov 23, at the First Baptist Church in Cuthbert, at 10:30 A.M., for Miss Mildred Eva Howell, 81, who died at her home on Randolph Street, Cuthbert, Tuesday, Nov 20, about 1 P.M."
"The funeral was conducted by the Rev Charles J. Granade pastor of the Church. Mrs. Brooke Hixon and Miss _rma Martin sang "It is Well With My Soul", Also, Miss Martin sang as a solo, "My Friend" a tribute she had composed and sung several years ago when the First Baptist Church honored Miss Howell at special ceremonies for her long and faithful service as organist of the church. As the assemblage of friends left the church Friday, Mrs. Hixon and Miss Martin sang, "Abide With Me." Mrs. Emilio Suarez accompanied at the organ."
"Pallbearers were W. W. Wood, R.F. Burgin, Sr. C.O. Johnson, Joe Kilgore, Rufus Rutland, F.E. Whaley, Brooke Hixon and Wilburn Taylor. Interment was in White Plains, GA. Friday afternoon"
"Surviving Miss Howell are two brothers, Henry Howell and Edward L. Howell, of Cuthbert, and a sister, Mrs. G. A. Camp, of Atlanta. Several nieces and nephews also survive."
"Born July 25, 1875, Miss Howell was a native of White Plains, Greene County, Georgia, the daughter of the late John McKinney Howell of Greene County, and the late Mrs. Emma Heard Howell, formerly of Augusta. She has resided in Cuthbert for the past 48 years. She was one of the first graduates of the Georgia Normal and Industrial College, Milledgeville, now known as Georgia State College for Women. A public school teacher for a time, she devoted the greater part of her life to teaching music. She was organist of the First Baptist Church, Cuthbert, for about 25 years. Miss Howell was also a newspaper woman for a number of years. She formerly owned the Cuthbert Leader, a predescesor of The Cuthbert Times, and was its manager for a number of years. She was known as a good newspaper woman in the weekly field and possessed an unerring sense of the appropriate in "hometown" reporting."
"Miss Howell was a member of the First Baptist Church in Cuthbert for 48 years. She took an active part in the affairs of her church and community as long as her health permitted. "Miss Eva" as she was affectionately known to Cuthbert citizens, retired from her duties as organist and teacher several years ago, due to declining health. When death came she was engaged in preparing lunch at her home and was found in the kitchen by her brother Henry Howell, who first thought her only unconscious and called in neighbors, when it was discovered that she was dead."
"Miss Howell was highly eteemed in the community and will be greatly missed."
"Sincere sympathy is extended the family in their bereavement."
She was a teacher. She also owned and managed the "Cuthbert Leader" newspaper in 1939 in Cuthbert, Randolph County, Georgia. Appears in the 1920 US Census as "Eva Howell", age 45, living with her brother John J. Howell, and her aunt Mary E. Heard..
