OBITUARY - MRS. EFFIE HATHAWAY.
Mrs. Effie HATHAWAY, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. M. DICKEY, was born near Kellerton, Iowa, December 19, 1887, and died
April 27, 1926, at the hospital in Creston, after an attack of the flu, aged 58 years (sic - should be 38 years), 3 months
and 16 days. She was married to Hollis HATHAWAY October 19, 1908. To this union were born nine children: George, Ernest,
Inez, Hubert, Donald, Fletcher, Millard, Marion and baby Floyd, all of whom are living, except Ernest, who preceded his
mother in death last December [1913-1925]. Besides her husband and children she leaves to mourn her loss, her father, mother and three
brothers and four sisters: Artie and Floyd, of Illinois, Mil and Mrs. Lillian MARCH, of Creston, Iowa; Mrs. Alta ROBINSON
and Mrs. Louis O'CONNOR, of Louisiana, and Edna at home; also a host of relatives and friends. She was a faithful wife, a
kind mother and was always cheerful with her little ones and will be greatly missed in the home. "It is sad
that one we cherish should be taken from our home,
but the joys that do not perish live in memory alone.
All the years spent together;
all the happy golden hours,
shall be cherished in rememberance,
fragrant sweets from memory's flowers."
