Caroline Rinker Culver, 1846-1918

Caroline Rinker, wife of George Culver, was born at Farmington, Lee county, Iowa, on July 11, 1846, being 72 years, 3 months and 29 days of age when she passed into eternal rest.

Her illness was of short duration and her sudden passing was a great shock to her relatives and friends. Death was due to acute gastric and claimed her on Sunday evening, November 10.

Besides her husband, George Culver, her only child Mrs. Grant Robinson, and grandson, William Culver Robinson, two sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth Frost of Forest Grove, Mont., and Mrs. Emily Atherton of Chuquicamata, Chile, South America, and two brothers, Walter T. Rinker of Unionville, Mo., and Oliver C. Rinker of Milton, Oregon, survive her.

Friends may view the remains at Creel's chapel on Wednesday. Mr. Culver and Mrs. Robinson leave with the remains on Thursday afternoon for the old family home, Seymour, Ia., where interment will be made.
