Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA June 11, 1931
Mrs. M.S. Birks Dies in Grove
Mrs. Martha S. Birks, one of Pacific Grove’s oldest residents, passed away yesterday at the age of 82. She was the mother of Mrs. N.R. Sprague of 133 Eighteenth street, with whom she had made her home since the death of her husband, the late J.L. Birks, a number of years ago. Mrs. Birks was born in Kentucky January 23, 1849, but had lived in Pacific Grove more than 40 years. Her husband was the owner of the Grove’s first bathhouse. They lived happily together for 55 years, celebrating their golden wedding anniversary several years ago at their home, 284 Pine avenue. Beside her daughter, Mrs. Birks is survived by eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She was active in the affairs of the Christian church for over 34 years, holding the offices of deaconess, president of the Ladies’ Aid society and other positions of trust and responsibility. Funeral services will take place at 2 o’clock tomorrow afternoon in the Paul mortuary chapel, Pacific Grove, with Rev. Leo Sadler officiating. Interment will be in El Carmelo Cemetery.
