THE WESTERN STAR, 29 September 1911
Obituary of ETTA M. HOOFER
At 7 o'clock p.m. on last Saturday, September 23, 1911, occurred the death of Mrs. M. F. Hoofer, at her home 4 miles southwest of this city. She had been in poor health for several months, suffering from an
internal abscess. For about six weeks she had been confined to her bed most all the time. Her suffering at times was intense, yet she was patient and uncomplaining. She had been unconscious for about 24 hours or more before her death.

Etta M. Smith was born in Shelby county, Missouri, on June 10, 1868. On January 11, 1885, she was united in marriage to M. F. Hoofer. They lived in Rush, Pawnee and Hodgeman counties in Kansas, until April 1900, when they moved to this county. Mrs. Hoofer was at all times a devoted wife and mother. Kind and considerate as a friend and neighbor, she was highly esteemed by all who knew her. She had for a number of years been
a member of a M. E. church, and her every thought and good deed seemed to conform to her profession. Her faith in Christ as her savior never faltered and her life and death was exemplified the triumphant christian's faith.

The husband and five children survive, all except the two oldest children, Roy and Jessie, being present at the time of her death or soon afterwards. The children who live in this county are; Mrs. Chas. Sickler, Mrs. Roy Fox and Asa Hoofer. Funeral services were held at the M. E. church in this city at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, the pastor, Rev. C. E. Brown, being in charge. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery. At the time of her death, Mrs. Hoofer's age was 43 years, 4 months and 13 days.
