Durst, Effie (Aug. 22,1881 - Dec. 23, 1930)

Effie Durst, daughter of Michael and Elisabeth Durst, was born at Pine Island, Minn., August 22, 1884. She lived in Minnesota until she was about thirteen years of age, when she came with her parents to Fairchild, where she lived until her death on Dec. 23, 1930.

She was married in 1905 to Francis M. Lightfoot, and to this union four children were born: Zelda, who has just completed a nurse’s training course in Eau Claire; May Belle, Frances, and Marion, all at home.

Although Mrs. Lightfoot had been in ill health for several years, she was always very patient and cheerful, and even to the last few days of her illness it was this remarkable spirit which seemed to keep her up.

She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, four children, two sisters, five brothers, and a host of other relatives and friends.
