For long ears she lived with her brother William on the farm home where she was born November 5, 1882, in Hoyleton township, Washington county. Her parents were Charles and Elizabeth (Krughoff) Brink, pioneer settlers of the community.

For over 40 years she taught a Sunday School class, she was active in the Women's Society of Christian Service and belonged to the W. C. T. U. As her minister said of her, she was alwas interested in people and tryhing to help them.
