Was sorting through my pile of genealogy papers and came across this obit on Lizzie (my great grandmother) via Homer James Pinneo Sr.
It was sent to me in 2000 by a California researcher.
Source: Tulare Advanced Register, August 26, 1965 Thank you for sending it to me. I am sorry I lost the original senders contact information.

*My uncle Homer James Pinneo, Jr. (aka Jim), told me the story of Little Grandma's death (she was called little grandma due to her size), he said she had spend the day canning peaches with her daughters and when they all sat down that evening for supper she bowed her head and quickly passed away, her head coming to a rest on her supper plate. He said she was a devoted Christian woman who was kind to all.
