Elizabeth Slinker Rites Here Friday

Funeral services for Mrs. Elizabeth Slinker were held at 2 p.m. Friday at the Conrad Methodist church, with Rev. R. O. Grote officiating. Burial was in the Conrad cemetery.

Special music for the service was provided by vocalists Mrs. Grant Frier and Mrs. A. J. Russie, and organist Miss Evelyn Stevens.

Casket bearers were Ralph Bristley, Clifford Green, Albert Kitzman, Tom Connell, Eugene Hammond and Edward Green.

Flower attendants were Mrs. Tom Connell and Mrs. Ethel Hammond.

Elizabeth Wiener Slinker was born at Dumont on September 29, 1894, the daughter of Ernest and Anne Wiener.

At the age of three, she moved with her family to Batchtown, Illinois. She attended school in that area and returned to Iowa as a young woman. On December 20, 1916, she was united in marriage with Charles L. Slinker at Grundy Center. Most of their married life was spent on two farms north of Conrad. After the death of her husband in March 1946, she moved to Conrad.

She is survived by her children, Mildred, Mrs. Harm Peters, of Eldora, Russel, Donald and Robert of Conrad and Mrs. Dorothy Mowery of Cedar Rapids, and fifteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild; three brothers, Paul, William and Ernest, of Illinois, five sisters, Mrs. Ford Klinefelter, of Marshalltown, Mrs. Harry Lynch of Beaman, Mrs. Charlie Smith, Mrs. Anne Foiles of Illinois and Mrs. Earl Vetter of New York; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mrs. Slinker was a member of the Conrad Methodist Church, of the Woman's Society of Christian Service, Royal Neighbors of America, American Legion Auxiliary, and a charter member of the Mid-Circle Club.

A friendly personality, she was held in high esteem by all who knew her, and we feel that the community is the better for her having lived among us.
