Mrs. G. W. Dinkel
Emma Cordelia Basing was born on July 27th, 1865, on the old Basing farm in Marion township. She was the third daughter born to Mr. and Mrs. Eldred Basing. At the age of three months her mother passed away and she was taken by Navering [Naverino] and Eliza Basing. She spent her girlhood and young womanhood at the Basing home and on March 8th 1895 [sic-1893] was united in marriage to Gottlieb W. Dinkel. To this union were born one daughter, Cordelia E Dinkel who is now Mrs. F. E. Weeks of Howell and one son, Norman Dinkel, who preceeded her to his reward in 1918.
During the first six years of her married life she lived with her husband on a farm near Pinckney and in 1901 they moved to their present home in Pinckney where she has spent the remainder of her earthly life. She united with the Pinckney Congregational church on April 8, 1906. Since that time she has always taken an active part in church work and has been identified with every work that was to be of benefit to her neighbors and friends. She was of bright and sunny disposition and loved by every one with whom she came in contact. She will always be remembered by her many friends.
Sickness overtook her on February 13, 1931, at the home of her daughter in Howell and she answered the call of her Heavenly Father on Feburary 27th, after a sickness of about two weeks, at the age of 65 years and 8 months. God took her home, it was his will, but within our hearts she liveth still.
She leaves to mourn her parting, her husband, Gottlieb W. Dinkel, of Pinckney, her daughter, Mrs. F. E. Weeks of Howell, and two grand-children, and three sisters, Mrs. Lille Dieterle of Pontiac, Mrs. Hattie Camp of Flint, and Mrs. Zora Chambers of Pinckney, and several cousins, nephews and nieces.
The funeral was held from the home Monday at 2:00 p.m. Rev. J. Berquist officiating. Burial was in the Pinckney cemetery.
