    The Journal-Patriot 
    • "Mrs. Gilreath Is Taken By Death: Funeral service for Mrs. Venie Hendren Gilreath, wife of the late M. L. Gilreath, of this city, was held Wednesday, 11 a. m., at the First Baptist Church. Mrs. Gilreath, age 73, died at her home here Monday about noon following a lingering illness. Surviving Mrs. Gilreath are two daughters and one son, Mrs. John Rhodes and Bryan Gilreath, of North Wilkesboro; and Mrs. T. K. Thomas, of Woodhaven, Long Island, N. Y. Mrs. Gilreath was a member of a well known family. She was a daughter of the late Enza and Matilda Hendren. Last rites were conducted by her pastor, Dr. David E. Browning. Interment was in the Baptist Cemetery."
    Name  Venie 
    Notes 
    • (Medical):Venie chewed snuff. This could have been a contributory factor. According to a 1983 interview with her daughter Chloe, Venie's neck became very enlarged. She was treated with "deep seated x-rays" and the swelling went away for a time. [4]
