Obituary Mrs M. F. Hoofer, Western Star 9-29-1911
Mrs M. F. Hoofer Dead
At 7 o'clock last Saturday, September 23, 1911, occurred the death of Mrs M. F. Hoofer at her home 4 miles southwest of this city. She had been in poor health for several months, suffering from an internal abscess. For about six week she had been confined to her med most all of the time. Her suffering at times was intense, yet she was patient and uncomplaining. She had been unconscious for 24 hours or more before her death.
Etta M. Smith was born in Shelby County, Mo, on June 10, 1868. On January 11, 1885, she was united in marriage to M. F. Hoofer. They lived in Rush, Pawnee, and Hodgeman counties in Kansas until April 1900, when they moved to this county. Mrs Hoofer was at all times a devoted wife and mother. King and considerate as a friend and neighbor, she was highly esteemed by all who knew her. She had for a number of years been a member of the M. E. church, and her every thought and deed seemed to conform to her profession. Her faith in Christ as her savior never faltered and in her life and death was exemplified the triumphant christian's faith.
The husband and five children survive, all except the two oldest children, Roy and Jessie, being present at the time of her death or soon afterwords. The children who live in this county are Mrs Chas. Sickler, Mrs Roy Fox, and Asa Hoofer. Funeral services were held at the M. E. church in this city at 3:30 pm on Monday the pastor, Rev C. E. Brown, being in charge. Interment was made in the Coldwater Cemetery. At the time of her death Mrs Hoofer's age was 43 years, 4 months and 13 days.
