  • Notes 
    • CHARLES F. BRINK

      After a brief illness, and almost without warning, Charles F. Brink, one of our most respected citizens, was summoned Tuesday afternoon at 2:50 o'clock in his residence on West Lebanon Street, at the age of 68 years, 1 month, and 19 days. Sunday morning, as was his custom, Mr. Brink and wife attended services in the M. E. church and on Monday morning he was engaged in work at home. During the noon meal he suffered a dizzy spell, but this later left him and he then indulged in reading. At 3:45 p.m., feeling worse, he took to his bed and on Tuesday at 2:50 p.m. a stroke of apoplexy terminated his life. While Mr. Brink had for years, at times, been afflicted with high blood pressure, he continued his trade as builder and no one suspected that the end was so near.
      Decedent, a son of Charles L. C. Brink and wife, Elizabeth, nee Krughoff, was born February 15, 1865, in North Prairie. In 1889, when a young man, he left for the state of Washington, where he remained over three years. He was married on Thanksgiving Day, November 29,1900, to Emma Finke, at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Casper Finke, in North Prairie, by Rev. H. F. Miller, their pastor . In 1920 the family moved to Nashville where they have since resided.
      Mr. Brink was a master builder, "a workman that needeth not be ashamed," in a mechanical and in a spiritual sense. Recognized as a skillful carpenter, he was a genius at moving houses, accepting contracts which others did not venture to attempt. He was friendly, obliging and had a high sense of honor. His integrity was unquestioned and he remained steadfast under all circumstances. His family life was happy and as member and officer of the Methodist Church he was ever faithful and unswerving. He and his family were very devoted to each other and his happiest moments were spent in his family circle.
      Surviving him are his bereaved wife and four children, Elinor, Mrs. Arthur Burnett, of East St. Louis; Delta, Mrs. Gardner Bride of Harrisburg; Helen, Mrs. J. P. Friend, of O'Fallon; and Raymond Brink of here. Four Grandchildren, Dolores Burnett, Garda Jean and Gardner Bride, Jr., and Joan Friend; three brothers, Fred Brink of Harviell, Missouri, H. F. W. Brink of Centralia, and William Brink of North Prairie; four sisters, Minnie, Mrs. (Rev.) Theo. Ludwig of Norfolk, Virginia, Mrs. Mary Rademacher of Nokomis, Miss Louise Brink of North Prairie and Miss Elizabeth Brink of St. Louis.
      Funeral services were held this Thursday afternoon in the M. E. Church, Rev. J. W. A. Kinison officiating, with interment in the M. E. Cemetary in North Prairie.
