"A Denver newspaper in an account of the tragic death of the couple on Pike's Peak tells of the heroic actions of Mrs. Skinner, who when her husband fell overcome by the cold and was unable to go on, assisted him to a sheltered ledge of rock, and rather than try to save her life by deserting her husband while she had the strength, sat beside him until death came to her also. She was found frozen to death in a sitting posture by the side of her husband."
(Source: "Funeral to be Held Sunday," Dallas Morning News, August 26, 1911, pg 14)

Their son was Carnegie Frank Skinner (b. 15 Mar 1899 Dallas, d. 18 Nov 1981 Houston)
