MRS. PHILIP H. DUBOIS
Rose Lee DuBois, wife of Philip H. DuBois of New Paltz, died in Vassar Hospital, Poughkeepsie, December 5, 1927, after a lingering illness.
She was born in Westtown, Orange County, April 2, 1874, the only child of Martin E. Lee and Alice Seymour Lee. In 1895 she was graduated from the academic department of the New Paltz Normal School and was married to Mr. DuBois on October 12, 1898. For many years their beautiful home at Elmwood Farm was noted for its generous hospitality. In recent years ill health made a mild climate necessary, Mrs. DuBois lived for a number of winters in Florida, but one was spent in California and one cruising on the Mediterranean.
Mrs. DuBois was a member of the New Paltz Reformed Church, had been president of the Ladies Aid and was for many years secretary of the Women's Missionary Society. She had been a trustee of the New Paltz Library Association and a member of the executive committee of the Study Club. She was a member of the Mahwenawasigh Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and a member of the N.S.V. Club.
Her father died in Westtown about six months ago since when her mother has made New Paltz her home. Mrs. DuBois is also survived by her husband and three sons, Martin Lee, Philip E. and Louis.
The funeral service were held at Elmwood Farm on Thursday afternoon, December 8. Rev. Edwin D. Miner of the New Paltz Reformed Church officiated, assisted by Rev. Mr. Line, pastor of the Presbyterian church of Westtown.
