Miss Elizabeth Will Simpson, for many years a resident of Flagler Beach, died at the home of her brother in Bristol, Tenn. on January 26, according to word received here by her sisters Mrs. Johnston and Miss Mary Kirk Simpson.

Miss Simpson was 86 years of age last March. She had been a missionary in the Hawaiian Islands for a number of years and was always active in church work, teaching a Bible Class in the Methodist church here for years.

Born in Pittsburg, Pa., she was a graduate of Pitts school of design for artists and painted many beautiful landscapes. Resolutions passed by her many friends in Radford, Va., where the family lived for many years, showed the esteem in which Miss Simpson was held.
