Prominent Humboldt Woman Died Sunday Night at Her Home
Mrs. Ernest I. Stanhope, fifty-seen years of age, passed away Sunday night about midnight, at her home in Humboldt. Mrs. Stanhope has been in ill health for a long time, and has been seriously ill during the past week or so with pneumonia, which caused her death.

Funeral services are to be held in the Congregational church in Humboldt, Tuesday afternoon at two o’clock, with the Rev. Thomas Lutman preaching the services. Duncan and Ellsworth are in charge.

Mrs. Stanhope leaves to mourn her death her husband and daughter, Mrs. Florence Fitch of Cedar Rapids, and son Maurice M. Stanhope of Omaha. She also leaves her father, William Mahlum of Estherville, her brothers, Henry W. and Albert of Estherville, and sister, Mrs. E. J. Dodge of Almo, Texas, all of whom were at her bedside during her recent illness.

Mrs. Stanhope, nee Alma Mahlum, was born June 8, 1874, in Clear Lake. She has made her home in Humboldt for about twenty years. She was a member of the Congregational church and took an active part in municipal activities.

She was past matron of the local Eastern Star lodge, past president of the local chapter of P.E.O., past president of the Congregational Ladies Circle, and a member of the Woman’s club as well as various other social organizations. (Humboldt Independent, Humboldt, IA, March 15, 1932)
