The following obituary is for Sadie (Mrs. P. H.) (Charter) Brinker. I received it from the Ontario, CA main library. They did not identify the newspaper they got it from. I have searched the Galena newspaper and did not find an obituary for her. My thought is that's because she was the last of Charles W. and Mary (Rodgers) Charter's children to die and there was no family left in Galena at the time of her death.
