PROVO -- Mrs. Adeline Henry Hinckley, prominent Provo and Ogden matron and mother of Robert H. Hinckley, J. S. director of contract settlement, Washington, D. C., died Tuesday at 9:35 p. m. at her home, 879 W. 5th North, after a lingering illness. She was 77 years old.

Four of her sons and daughters, Claude Warren and George Marion Hinckley, Mrs. H. C. Walton and Mrs. C. H. Durrant, all of Provo, were at the bedside.

Funeral services will be conducted Saturday at 2 p. m. in Pioneer L D S ward chapel by Frank Killpack, bishop. Burial will be in Provo City burial park. Robert H. Hinckley will arrive in Provo Thursday morning from Washington to attend the funeral.

Long active in L D S church and charitable organizations in both Ogden and Provo, she won note for her organizing ability in social work.

Mrs. Hinckley was born Jan. 12, 1868 in Fillmore, a daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Bacon Henry. She attended schools in that city and was active in L D S church youth organizations, holding for many months the post of church organist.

She lived in Provo until 1916, when she moved to Ogden with her husband when he became superintendent of the state industrial school. They returned to Provo in 1924 and he died Nov. 15, 1929.

During World War I, Mrs. Hinckley was active in American Red Cross work and labored tirelessly during the influenza epidemic in Ogden.

She also was a member of Brigham Young university women, Daughters of Utah Pioneers and Alice Louise Reynolds Literary club.

Mrs. Hinckley was the mother of 13 sons and daughters, nine of whom survive: Robert H. Hinckley and Mrs. Kenneth M. MacKenzie, Washington, D. C.; Edwin Carlile Hinckley, Pittsburg, Cal.; John Noble Hinckley, Belmont, Mass.; Frederick Russell Hinckley, Salt Lake City, and Claude Warren Hinckley, George Marion Hinckley, Mrs. H. C.
