Mrs. Romaine and husband were among the pioneers of this vicinity and had a hand in developing this great commonwealth.

She was a charter member of the Women's Relief Corps when it was organized at Loyal, afterwards she joined at Neillsville and kept her membership there until her death. She is survived by four daughters, one son preceding her in death. The daughters are Edith, Mrs. C. M. Ransimer, Long Beach, Calif.; Mary, Mrs. C. H. Brown, Loyal; Leah, Mrs. J. D. Graves, Spencer; Jessie, Mrs. Robert Eunson, Inglewood, Calif., three sisters: Mrs. W. S. Irvine, Owen; Mrs. Rhoda Stowe, St. Helena, Calif.; Mrs. Rosa Frasier, Loyal; one brother, Robert Roscoe, Rathdrum, Idaho, fifteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, besides a host of friends.

The remains were accompanied to Spencer by Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Graves and the funeral was held at their home on Sunday afternoon, May 4th at one o'clock, Rev. Charles Brown of the Methodist Church officiating. At her request he talked from the following text, Psalms 91:1, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

The flowers were many and beautiful and mutely spoke of the esteem in which the deceased was held.

The body was taken to Neillsville where she was laid to rest beside her husband and son. The W. R. C. had charge of the services at the grave.
