THE WESTERN STAR, 13 November 1942
Obituary of HARVEY D. PIPKIN

Harvey D. Pipkin, who had been in the Norton sanitarium the past five months, passed away last Saturday, November 7, after an illness of about three years. Mr. Pipkin and his family lived in Coldwater from 1931 until 1939 when Mr. Pipkin sold his barber shop and moved with his family to Wellington. Soon afterward, Mr. Pipkin's health failed and for over a year was in a sanitarium in Wichita.

Funeral services were held in the Kingman Methodist church Tuesday afternoon of this week and were in charge of Rev. A. E. Greenler, former pastor of Mr. Pipkin of Coldwater, the two families coming to this city only a few days apart. Rev. Greenler, who is now pastor at Hoisington, brought a comforting message, using as his text, John 14:18, I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. A girls trio sang "Sometime We'll Understand" and a mixed quartet sang "Safe in The Arms of Jesus." Burial was in the Cheney cemetery.

Those from Coldwater who attended the funeral were, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Anderson and daughter, Marcia Jo, Betty Betzer, Mrs. Harold Daniel and Mr. and Mrs. Muriel Gregg.

At the time of his death Mr. Pipkin was about 40 years of age. He had spent practically all of his life in Kingman county and was well liked wherever he lived. He was a kind and loving father and husband and was a member of the Methodist church. He is survived by his wife and daughter, Carol, of Cheney, Kansas; also by his parents, seven brothers and one sister. His parents are nearly 90 years of age and this was the first death in their family.
