Ethel Botkin, 80, of 506 East 9th, died at 6:19 a.m. Saturday [26 November 1955] in Grace Hospital [in Hutchinson, Reno County, Kansas]. A retired schoolteacher, she was a member of the Hutchinson school system's staff for 47 years.

Miss Botkin was born on Feb. 1, 1875, in Pleasanton, Kansas. She moved, with her parents, to Hutchinson in 1892.

A member of the First Presbyterian Church since 1894, she was a regular Sunday-School teacher there for more than 30 years.

Since her retirement from the school-teaching profession, she has held offices in the church and social organizations of her community. She was a member of the D Chapter, of the PEO. She earned her 50-year membership pin in that organization last May. She was a lifetime member of the Hutchinson Teachers' Association.

Surviving her are a sister, Mrs. Nell B. Ghormley [wife of John Raymond Ghormley], of 506 East 9th, [in Hutchinson, Kansas,] and a brother, Clyde J. Botkin, of Sumner, Washington, and two nephews.
