Obituary Help- Daniel Christen- 1925

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me try to find an obituary for Daniel Charles Christen, b 1875, died 12 Dec 1925 in Cananea, Sonora, Mexico, and buried in Bisbee, Cochise, Arizona. Notice of his death was sent to his widow Pearl Christen, and I'm hoping there was some kind of death notice or obituary for Daniel in a Salt Lake City newspaper (Pearl resided in the area). I suppose there could have been a delay in getting any news about his passing since it was so far away.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.

I wasn't able to find an obituary for Daniel Christen. Do you know his cause of death?

Looking at the 1920 U.S. Federal census, Daniel, Pearl and Pearl's three children are living in Bingham, Salt Lake, Utah. Daniels' occupation is "Miner".

Maybe Daniel was an employee of the "Calumet and Arizona copper Mining Co." in Bisbee, Arizona and worked the company mines in Cananea, Sonora Mexico. The company also mined silver.

All of the articles in various newspapers regarding the Calumet mining co. show it was a prosperous and safe mine, the last accident was 4 years prior to 1925.
I did not find anything for other mining companies in Arizona that related to accidents.

Thanks to Judie and "diskoverit" for checking for obituaries for Daniel Charles Christen. I wonder how far each of you checked. Lannie Hartman found Daniel's death certificate on Ancestry.com, the death index for Americans dying abroad (dated 18 Jan. 1826). It shows his final moments as dying of "apoplexy" while hunting. He was working for "Cananea Cons Copper Co." His wife Pearl was notified of his death via telegraph on the following day (13 Dec. 1825)-- strangely, addressed to "c/o Holy Cross Hospital, Salt Lake, Utah". His name is given as "Charles Christen".
Anyway, as I asked, I wonder how much later after Dec. 12 the newspapers were checked-- while Pearl was notified the 13th, the report to the government did not go in until January 18th, 1926. Thanks in advance for any further checking.
