Birth: Aug. 11, 1891
Death: Aug. 25, 1912

Minco Minstrel
August 30, 1912


At an early hour last Sunday morning Mrs. O. E. Aber passed from her suffering to the great beyond after a remarkable fight against overwhelming odds, despite untiring efforts of medical skill and tender nursing of loved ones. The end came three days after a second operation on August 22, two weeks after the first operation, at which time Mrs., Aber gave promise of ultimate recovery. During the first terrible ordeal and for a week following, she bore up under suffering that would have daunted many, showing through it all an implicit faith in God and a trust in surgical skill that touched the hearts of those who came in contact with her. She expressed confidence that she would soon be at home with friend's and received their visits with a cheerfulness that commanded admiration from all. But it had been ordained that she was never to be permitted to leave her bed in the hospital and when it was decreed that a second operation must be performed, there was little hope that the weakened system could withstand the ordeal, and the end was not unexpected.
The body was brought to this city where the funeral services were conducted from her home at the residence of Mrs. J.W. Aber, Monday afternoon. Rev. Hogan of the Baptist church of Lindsay preaching the sermon. Interment was made in the Minco cemetery Monday afternoon, the funeral cortege being composed of over forty teams.
Irene Pinkston Aber was the eldest daughter of D.W. Pinkston, and was married to Orville E. Aber on October 4, 1909 She was 21 years of age on August 11. As a daughter and as a wife she possessed all those attributes of mind and heart that make an ideal life in her associations, and as a friend she did not forget in the hour when the shadows were growing long and the pitcher at the fountain was soon to be broken. Why she had to bear such a cross yet seemly in vain, will not be known this side of eternity, yet there must be some great purpose through which we are not yet permitted to see. And her life suffering and death may have been seeds sown in soil that will bring forth the fruit of inspiration to higher ideals in this life with their ultimate reward in life to be..Who Know?
