[Note: Daughter of Samuel A. & Sarah Perinza (Woody) Elkins; married 5 Nov 1888 Dr. Cullen Bryant Elkins 1 Jun 1862 - 25 Feb 1947]
The funeral of Mrs. Alice Flagg Elkins, 77, widow of Dr. C.B. Elkins, 804 South Pickwick, who died at St. John’s hospital last Monday night, was held Wednesday afternoon in the Alma Lohmeyer chapel at 2 o’clock, her pastor, the Reverend Clayton Potter, officiating. Pallbearers were Ward Adams, Herbert Rogers, Clark Howell, Neil Gray, Vern Dillon, and John Clark. Burial was in Hazelwood cemetery. Mrs. Elkins was one of the city’s most widely known women and universally liked for her cheerful and friendly temperament. For years she was one of the outstanding leaders in local Democratic politics—one time president of the Green County Women’s Democratic club, a longtime committeewoman, and invariably a judge in the first ward in every election, even this year’s primary. She probably “inherited’ her interest in politics from her husband, an active Democratic leader who was one-time secretary of the state committee and secretary of the state board of health and under Governor A.M. Dockery was resident physician at the state penitentiary. Mrs. Elkins also was a longtime active member and onetime president of the Kurean Society of the South Street Christian church, where she had been a member ever since coming to Springfield in 1905. She also was both active and popular socially—and indeed, her last activity was to attend a dinner party at the Frisco Saturday night and to spend the rest of the evening with friends. She went home around midnight after making arrangements to meet her friends the next morning again. When they called Sunday morning and received no answer, they called her son, Ralph Elkins. He was not at home, but Mrs. Elkins went immediately to her mother-in-law’s home, found her unconscious. She was taken at once to St. John’s, where she died Monday night. Cause of her death possibly was a stroke of some sort. In spite of her interests, animation, and persistent activity, Mrs. Elkins actually had not been in good health for many years; but few people realized it because of her refusal to give in to her ailments. Mrs. Elkins was born near Rogersville, Mo. Oct. 5, 1870, the daughter of a Union officer, Captain Flagg. She married Dr. Elkins at 17, and they lived at Ozark, Mo., until his appointment by Gov. Dockery took them to Jefferson City in 1900. At the end of the term, they moved to Springfield. Dr. Elkins died in February of last year. Mrs. Elkins was first president of the Women’s Auxiliary of the Greene County Medical Society. Surviving her are two sons, Dr. Ronald Elkins and Ralph Elkins, both of Springfield; one sister, Mrs. Lillian McStay, of Riverside, Cal., and three grandchildren. – Springfield Leader and Press.

In loving memory of Elizabeth Elkins, who passed away 3 years ago, November 17th. Today we are lonely for the one we loved most dear, We would give the world twice over if she were only here; Why did she die when life seemed fair and no dark clouds were near To dim the brightness of our eye or to start the bitter tear. We thought not at the close of day when night veiled earth and sky That one so full of life and hope would breath the last goodbye. Sadly missed by Mrs. O. T. Mayes and daughters, Denver, Colo.
