Small Girl Drowns In River at Minam
While picking flowers with playmates near the Wallowa river at Minam last Saturday, May 8, Betty Childers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Childers lost her balance and fell down the steep bank into the stream. She had been perhaps ten feet above the river. The water was high and deep quite to the bank. The child was carried about a mile down stream where her body was found half an hour later.
She would have been three years old June 2 and was born near Lostine, where her parents formerly lived. Her parents and a baby brother, 15 months old, survive her. Funeral services were held Sunday at Elgin where the girl was laid to rest.
