THE WESTERN STAR, 4 April 1913
Obituary of MAUDE FRENCH
Mrs. O. W. French of Wilmore Dies After One Week's Illness.

Mrs. Maude French, wife of O. W. French of Wilmore, died in that city on last Friday evening, March 28, 1913. She took sick on the Saturday before her death. The immediate cause of her death was congestion of the
brain. The news of her death came as a pall over the entire community, for wherever Mrs. French was known she was greatly loved and highly esteemed.

Deceased was a native of Missouri, having been born 29 years ago in Greenridge, that state. Her near relatives now live in St. Louis. Of them, only her mother could be present at the funeral. Mr. and Mrs. French had been married about 10 years. They had lived in or near Wilmore for about 3 years. Before coming to Wilmore they had lived for a few years at Greensburg. Theirs was a very happy home. Mrs. French was
peculiarly adapted to the work of a hopeful and helpful wife. At the age of 15 she became a member of the Congregational church, and she had lived the life of a consistent and devoted christian. During the recent
meetings in Wilmore she and her husband united with the Christian church. Funeral services were conducted at 10 o'clock a.m. on Sunday in the Christian church in Wilmore, the pastor, Elder R. H. Tanksley, being in charge. The services were very impressive and were largely attended. Interment was made in the Greensburg cemetery.
