Paper: Denver Post
Died at the family residence of Mr and Mrs B. H. Du Bois, at 1360 Corona Street, at 6:30 o'clock Wednesday evening, Nov 4, Miss Edna Speer Moore, at the age of 21 years 9 months.

The young woman was the only child of Mr and Mrs Charles Moore. Her father was a wealthy mining man of Robinson, Colo. where Edna was born Jan 29, 1882. Her father was given the Republican nomination of lieutenant-governor on the same ticket with George Robinson as governor. Mr. Moore was stricken with pneumonia during the campaign and died before the election. Her grandfather, Mr. Speer, was one of the foremost and strongest advocates of the Union and of abolition during the troublous times of Kansas. He is living with Mr. and Mrs Du Bois.

Miss Edna Moore was a pupil of the East Denver High School, where all were her friends and admirers, both teachers and pupils. She allowed nothing to interfere with her devotion to her school work, and in spite of a naturally delicate frame and a fragile constitution, she kept up at the head of her classes, and was held in restraint of her ambition only by advice of her professors and her loving and devoted mother, whose very soul was wrapped up in her idolized child.

Of a cheerful and loving disposition, she had but one complaint to make, which was that she was not robust enough to advance in her studies as rapidly as she felt her bright mind was capable of doing.

All who knew her loved her for her personality, her sweetness, her kindness, and her loveable disposition.

On such occasion words of condolence are but weak, where a devoted mother's heart is bereft of what it held most dear, and upon which it lavished its purest thoughts of hope, pride, affection and adoring love. To awake from such a dream to the barrenness and desolation of a denuded hearth and the heart-chill of a vacant chair is a despond which God alone may and will cure.
