Mariposa Gazette, March 27, 1920: In Memory of Mrs. Elizabeth Arthur
Hornitos, March 18, 1920.
Died in Hornitos, March 12th of pneumonia, Elizabeth Ann, beloved wife of Charles R. Arthur, Born December 19, 1863.
Mrs. Arthur was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. Geary of Whitlocks, she spent all her childhood days amidst the dear old Mariposa mountains. About 26 years ago she was married to Charles R. Arthur of Hornitos, She had been practically an invalid all of her married life; Had been in the hospitals several times, but never found any lasting relief, so, could not at any time enter into the social life of the community. She was a deep student and intensely religious. She loved her garden and flowers and the birds came by dozens to be fed from her hands. With her when she died was her sister, Mrs. Joseph Branson, and son Ernest of Quartzburg, Mr Arthur being in Santa Barbara county, where he is employed and busy making a home for his wife. Mrs. Arthur had everything packed and ready to go when the Supreme Ruler changed all their plans and laid the little wife low. Looking down on her in the quiet hours it seemed sad and pathetic; but she was resting so beautifully – on more pain – she was looking on the one who said "Come unto Me all ye who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest." – Rest the poor tortured body had craved so long, it must have been a beautiful change, she looked so supremely happy one could not wish her back. The real trial was to see that beg strong husband and lover of 26 years come into the presence of that still form covered with blossoms gathered on the hills by kind neighbors little boys and scattered over her when they came to say their last good-byes to a dear friend. She was laid away March 14th, in the Catholic cemetery in Mariposa beside her father, mother, sister and brothers. District Attorney Louis T. Milburn read the beautiful Catholic service over her and the Mariposa quartet sang in their usual impressive way several hymns, breathing sympathy to the bereaved relatives, Surviving the deceased is the husband, Charles R. Arthur, two sisters, Mrs. Joseph Branson of Quartzburg and Mrs. Michael Bauer of Richmond; and several nieces and nephews.
