Wife of John R Brinkley, married August 23, 1913 and a second time in 1916 after his divorce from first wife Sally Wike was final. Assisted in many of the infamous "goat gland" operations performed by her husband. May be said to have been as unscrupulous as he. At her funeral a ZZ Top song which mentions her husband and his Mexican radio stations was played.
