      ELIZABETH BRINK
      Miss Elizabeth Brink, last surviving daughter of the late Charles L. C. Brink, was born on the family farm near Huegely on February 20, 1879, and entered eternal rest January 29, 1964, at Odin, where she had been staying a few weeks at the Yaw Nursing Home.
      Surviving her death is her brother William of Nashville and many relatives, nieces and nephews.
      At the age of 16 years, while attending high school in Nashville, she was converted in a revival held here and joined the North Prairie Methodist Church. Later in her twenties she fully concsecrated her life to God and became an ernest worker and devoted servant of God seeking always to build the Kingdom.
      She moved to St. Louis in her early twenties and lived for most of her adult life there employed by several business firms. For a time she was active with her sisters, Minnie and Clara Brink in the Lighthouse Mission under the direction of the late C. F. Flower. She was always faithful in her church attendance until the last few years when failing health did not permit.
      Elizabeth Brink was known for her cheerfulness; her self-reliance and her concern for a large number of relatives and friends. In her retirement years she was happy in her apartment which she owned and where her friends frequently joined her in fellowship. Her Christian testimony and witness inspired many persons who knew and loved her.
      The memorial service was conducted from the Robert N. Smith Funeral Home with her nephew, Rev. S. T. Ludwig of Kansas City, Mo. officiating assisted by Rev. Ray Porter, pastor of Grace Methodist Church. Mrs. Helen Marie Gilter sang consoling hymns and Mrs. Laverna Gewe was the organist.
      She was laid to rest in the North Prairie cemetery to await the resurrection morning. Pallbearers were Irvin, Raymond, and Charles Ray Brink, Bob Whitsett, Wesley Krughoff and Edw. Bernreuter.
