Howe, Maude M. (23 April 1876 –10 Oct. 1930)

Mrs. Maude M. Howe, nee Miss Maude Wilbur, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Stanley Wilbur, was born at Antigo, Wis. April 23,1876.

At the age of twenty one years she was united in marriage with Lawrence Edwin Howe of Humbird, Wis. To this union was born one daughter, Geneva, now Mrs. C. Bernard Peterson of North Evans, N. Y.

Mr. and Mrs. Howe and daughter made their home in Minneapolis for many years. On account of Mrs. Howe’s failing health she and her husband went last spring to New York, where their daughter and family resides. Returning to Minneapolis two weeks ago she was taken to Deaconess hospital where she passed away on Friday evening Oct. 10,1930 aged 54 years 5 months and 11 days.

News of her death was a great shock to her many old friends here as they were not aware of her serious illness. She was a kind, loving wife, mother and sister and was dearly loved by her many friends and relatives.

She leaves to mourn her departure her husband, daughter, four grandchildren, three sisters; Mrs. Ada Farnsworth of Humbird; Mrs. Mabel Merrill of Minneapolis; and Mrs. Hazel Harris of Altoona, and two brothers, Carl A. Wilbur and Layton O. Wilbur both of Humbird.
