    Mrs. Cyrus Frink, a resident of Milton Junction and vicinity for many years, was suddenly stricken on Monday afternoon, April 11, 1921, and despite immediate medical aid she soon passed away.
    Elizabeth Huffman was the fifth child of the nine children born to Michael and Mary Livingstone Huffman. In the order of their birth, they were Letty, George, Amanda, John L., Elizabeth, Matilda, Nancy, Denisa, and Charity. The brother, John L., was a prominent minister, and a preacher and evangelist of unusual ability and power. In Mrs. Frink's death, the last member of this immediate family is removed.
    Elizabeth was born in Piketown, Clark Co., Ohio, April 8, 1839. In 1849, her father brought his family to Wisconsin and made his home in Milton township, near Rock River. Here they were a part of that group of pioneers that hewed homes out of the forests and created farms that have made Rock County notable.
    In her girlhood, while Elder Varnum Hull was a pastor, Mrs. Frink made a public profession of Christ and became a member of the Rock River Seventh Day Baptist church. Later her membership was transferred to the church at Milton. When the Seventh Day Baptist church at Milton Junction was organized, she became one of the constituent members. Mrs. Frink was a practical, earnest, christian woman, who was deeply interested in religious activities. She dearly loved her Bible, and for years was accustomed to read it through every year. She was a member of the Ladies' Aid Society.
    On September 6, 1862, she was united in marriage to Cyrus Frink, Rev. Varnum Hull officiating. One child was born to them, Myrta, the wife of Mr. George Maltpress, of Milton Junction. A niece, Mrs. Russell Frink, was mothered by Mrs. Elizabeth Frink until the former grew to young womanhood and married.
    Since the death of her husband, Mrs. Frink has had the companionship of her daughter and her husband, who in a filial way have cared for the mother's needs in her declining years.
    There was a brief service of prayer at the house on Wednesday afternoon, April 13, and a public service in the church in which she was accustomed to worship. Because of the illness of her pastor, Rev. Edgar D. Van Horn, the services were conducted by Rev. Henry N. Jordan and Rev. George Burdick, both former pastors of the deceased. Burial took place in the cemetery at Milton Junction.
