Blanchard, Maude (8 May 1875 - 28 June 1938)

Mrs. E. M. Blanchard died Tuesday morning at 3:30 o’clock at her home in the town of Hull after an illness of ten years, a heart ailment and hardening of the arteries being the cause of her departure to the distant shore. Funeral services will be held at the Colby Methodist Episcopal church, Rev. Harry Lee officiating, and internment will be made in the Colby cemetery.

The deceased, whose maiden name was Maude Pendlebury, was born in Aryshire, Iowa, May 8th, 1875, thus reaching the age of sixty-three years. She was married to E. M. Blanchard on Dec. 25th, 1892, at Aryshire, Ia., where she and her husband lived until 1919 when they moved to Wisconsin. They lived at Prentice and later east of Unity for some time, and, in 1932, they moved to this community. In April, 1938, they moved to the farm on which they lived up to the time of her death.

Surviving are her husband, three sons, Kenneth Blanchard of Spencer, George Blanchard of Colby and Ray Blanchard at home, two brothers, Clyde and Ross Pendlebury, both in Iowa, and three sisters, Mrs. Dennis Rouse of Aryshire, Iowa, Mrs. Frank Hannabecker of Alexander, N. Dak., and Mrs. John Dannewitz of Iowa.

The deceased was a good Christian, of a kind and congenial disposition and always cared for those dependent upon her. She will be sadly missed by members of her family and also by a host of friends.
