MESA ARIZONA
Death of Effie Hakes a Beautiful Daughter of Zion

Mesa, Maricopa Co., Arizona, Dec. 5 - We have to record that another of Zion's fair daughters has passed away after a long, weary and painful sickness, Sister Effie Hakes, beloved daughter of President Collins R. and Mabel Ann Hakes, died Nov. 21st, at 4 p.m. She had been suffering from cancer in the breast for about a year; her parents and friends did all in their power for her comfort and restoration to health. In October last she had a severe attack of plurisy from which she never wholly recovered and although the cancer had nearly all disappeared the other ailment was more than her frail body could endure and she passed peacefully away in her father's arms without the least struggle.

Sister Effie Hakes was one of those sweet spirits of whom it could be truly said she had no enemies, but loved by all who new her, and above all was a true Latter-day Saint and a faithful Sunday School worker.

She was also counselor in the primary association, always prompt and energetic in every calling placed upon her and too much cannot be said in her praise as a dutiful daughter.
