Mrs. Whiting was highly esteemed by those who knew her. She had been for many years a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She is survived by a son, William H. Whiting, a member of Company D, Fourth Virginia regiment, who is now at Jacksonville, and a daughter, Mrs. Annie Darden, who has resided with her some time.
The funeral will not take place until tomorrow, in order to afford time to her son to make the journey from Jacksonville.
