Mollie C. Kirk Helped to run farm


Mollie C. Kirk, several of whose survivors live in Maryland, died Sunday of heart failure at her home farm in Independence, Va., at age 102.

Services are set for 3 p.m. today at Gold Hill Baptist Church in that southwestern Virginia community.

One of Mrs. Kirk's five surviving children, two of her 12 grandchildren and one of her five great-grandchildren live in Maryland.

Born in 1890 in Bridle Creek, Va., the former Mollie C. Phipps attended schools there. She was married in 1917 to C. Mastin Kirk, who died in 1972. For many years, they operated a large farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Independence, raising Black Angus cattle.

Mrs. Kirk's survivors include a daughter, Betty Kirk Webber of Edgewood; grandsons Lawrence Lee Webber of Loch Raven Village and Gregory Guthrie of Columbia; and a great-grandson, Patrick Webber of Loch Raven Village.
