Elizabeth Farnum Hinds

Elizabeth Farnum Hinds died peacefully at her home in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, Saturday evening, Aug. 4, 2012. She is survived by her son, Granville Farnum, son-in-law David Drain of Lake Havasu, Arizona, and six grandchildren (Linda Maillot, Lakewood; Greg Drain, Golden; Lisa Rubenstein, Golden; Lori Hollingsworth, Deltona, Florida; Kelly Farnum, Keller, Texas; and Stacey James, New Castle). She is also survived by nine great-grandchildren.

Elizabeth is preceded in death by her first husband, William H. Farnum, Jr., of Glenwood Springs, second husband Samuel J. Hinds of Golden, Colorado, son William H. Farnum, III who died shortly after birth, and daughter Janice Drain.

Born in Shattuk, Oklahoma, to Adda and John Young, Elizabeth was brought to Silt, Colorado, when she was one year old to live with her grandparents after the death of her father. At age six, Beth was reunited with her mother, brother Silas and sister Lila Young. Beth graduated from Garfield High School (now known as Glenwood Springs High School). After her marriage to William Farnum, Jr., she worked with him and his family at Farnum Mortuary in Glenwood Springs for many years.

Beth, as she was known by her friends, was a caring and giving lady, known for her loving attitude to all who knew her. She loved traveling, dancing, watching wildlife and flying. She was particularly proud of successfully obtaining a pinch-hitters pilot’s course in two different airplanes.

Services will be held on Aug. 22 at Mountain View Church of Glenwood, 2195 County Road 154, Glenwood Springs at 10 o’clock in the morning.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that you take your family out to dinner and enjoy each other’s company, or a donation to Hospice of the Valley.
