Funeral Card Friday - Daisy Barham Ross

This is a scan of the inside of the funeral card for my great grand aunt, Daisy L. (Barham) Ross. She was the wife of Mason Ross, who was the brother of my great grandmother Clara (Ross) Fowlie.

The card is transcribed as follows:

Just a few notes, there doesn't seem to be a Greenville in Tennessee, so I'm assuming this refers to Greeneville, Tennessee. Another thing is that the Social Security Death Index lists Daisy Ross as being born 28 Dec 1890. Her tombstone and funeral card say 1891.
