Obituary: Westport Woman Fatally Burned: Mrs. Siddie Walker Blount, 44, died early last Thursday afternoon in the Webb-Williamson hospital in Jackson. Her death was caused by burns she received early Thursday morning at her home near Westport in Carroll County. Mrs. Blount started to kindle a fire in the kitchen stove to prepare breakfast and used gasoline which she thought was kerosene to start the fire. The can was blown to bits when it exploded and sprayed Mrs. Blount with the burning gasoline. Hearing her screams, her son, James, rushed to her assistance and attempted to smother the flames in a vain effort to save his mother's life. He received serious burns on the arms and legs. Both the mother and son were rushed to the hospital where she died. His burns were serious but he will recover. Funeral services for Mrs. Blount were held Saturday afternoon in the Westport Baptist Church where she was a member. Rev. G.C. Joyner of Parsons conducted the services with burial in Jamison Cemetery near Westport. Mrs. Blount was the daughter Sid J. and Lula Jamison Walker of Westport.
