Thursday, January 19, 1922

Lenore V. Maule was born October 20, 1861, in Greensborough, North Carolina, and died at the family home in Payette, Idaho, January 14, 1922, aged sixty years, two months and twenty-three days, death coming peacefully, as the result of an illness of eighteen months duration.

Deceased spent her early years in North Carolina, moving later to Council Bluffs, Iowa, where she was married March 23, 1886, to William Maule, coming to Payette with her husband and children in the fall of 1902, and making her home here up to the time of her death.

Mrs. Maule was a loyal worker in Church and Civic organizations.

She was a member of the Woman's Relief Corps, the Order of the Eastern Star and the Womens Auxiliary to the American Legion. She also held a life membership in the W. C. T. U. and was an honorary member of the Portia Club. This latter organization Mrs. Maule served for many years as Corresponding Secretary, only resigning her office when her failing health made it impossible for her to continue in the work she loved, and which she so efficiently performed. Not only by the Portia club, but by every other organization to which she belonged, and by a large circle of friends, will Mrs. Maule be sadly missed. Such service as she gave is not readily forgotten but she will be more keenly missed in the home where she has for nearly forty years filled the place as a kind and loving wife and mother.

She is survived by her husband, two daughters and four sons, as follows: Mrs. R. O. Payne, of Ontario, Mrs. E. H. Murphy of Payette, Albert Maule of Nampa, Ruel and Dwight of Payette, and Leroy, who is a student at the University of Idaho, a third daughter Pearl, died in infancy.

Funeral services were conducted at the family home on Second Ave., North, by the Rev. Thos. Ashworth, Rector of St. James' Church, while the O. E. S. officiated at the grave. Interment was made in Riverside cemetery.

The heartfelt sympathy of the entire community goes out to the Maule family in their bereavement and particularly to the husband who has been constantly by her side during the long period of sickness and rendered all possible aid and comfort until the last.
