Carnes, Effie May Mrs. – Obituary

North Powder, Union County, Oregon

Passed Away Last Saturday Morning

The community was saddened last Saturday morning to learn of the death of Mrs. Homer M. Carnes, a prominent young matron of this vicinity. Mrs. Carnes had been ill only a short time, many of her friends not being aware of her serious condition.

Mrs. Effie May Carnes was born in Whitten, Hardin County, Iowa, February 9, 1895. She came to North Powder, March 3, 1907, where she has since lived. She was baptized into the M.E. Church, at this place, by Rev. Harry Young, in February, 1914. She was an earnest church worker and her interest and work in the Sunday school will long be remembered.

She was married to Homer M. Carnes, June 16, 1915, and they lived in Corvalis, Oregon, for nine months, where Mr. Carnes was in the employ of the state and government investigational work in forage. Upon his resignation they moved upon a farm on Wolfe creek, near North Powder, where they have since lived.

Twelve days before her death she was taken to St. Elizabeth hospital, where she passed away, at the age of 24 years, 4 months and 12 days. She leaves a husband and two children, Zelpha Lucile age 3 years, 3 months, and Orris Albin, 1 year, 11 months to mourn her loss and who will miss a loving wife and mother.

Funeral services were held from the Methodist church last Monday afternoon, attended by a large concourse of sympathetic friends and neighbors. Interment was in the city cemetery.
