Keokuk, Iowa
14 Nov 1913



Went There With the Family Several
Months Ago in the Hope
of Benefiting Her




And Passed Away at Boulder, That
State, at 2:30 O'Clock
Yesterday After-


Her many friends in this city and vicinity will be grieved to hear of the death of Mrs. Effie Elizabeth Halbeck Pinkley, wife of Dr. W. M. Pinkley, who died at Boulder, Colo., at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon of lung trouble.

Mrs. Pinkley was born at Kahoka, Mo., November 28, 1874, and was educated there, where she grew into womanhood. She was married in Kahoka to Dr. W. M. Pinkley, September 26, 1894, and later came to Keokuk to reside. Of a kindly social disposition, she made many friends in the city. She was an active member of the Trinity M. E. church and drew about her many friends among whom she was a favorite.

Four or five months ago, the family went to Colorado in hope that the climate there would be beneficial to her health, still retaining Keokuk as their home, where they had resided about fourteen years, with the saddening result which confronts her sorrowing relatives and friends of this vicinity.

Mrs. Pinkley was the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Halbeck of Kahoka, Mo., by whom she is survived, together with her husband and two daughters, Murine and Mabel.

Death is a doubly sad event when it strikes down with its relentless hand, a young wife and mother, in the splendid prime of her young womanhood, and takes her from a large circle of devoted friends. She was a beloved young matron and her death will wound many hearts in Keokuk and Kahoka and vicinity where she was known so well and respected so highly.

Besides her father and mother and her immediate family, already named, she leaves the following brothers and sisters: George Halbeck, Kennett, Mo.; Charles A. Halbeck, Keokuk; Frank Halbeck, Chicago; Otto Halbeck, St. John, Kansas; Mrs. Charles Cribbs, St. John, Kansas; Mrs. Sephia Hummell, Boulder, Colo.; Mrs. Chris Stopper, Kahoka, Mo., and Mrs. Ed S. Lofton, Keokuk.

The remains will reach Keokuk tomorrow, Saturday, evening, and will be taken at once to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ed S. Lofton, 1016 Exchange street. The funeral will be held at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the Trinity Methodist church, of which she was a faithful member.
