Death: Nov. 9, 1931
Crawford County

Mayme Slegel Maynard, daughter of Karel Slegel and Barbara Kocum Slegel, was
born January 9, 1884, and grew to womanhood in Milford Township, Crawford
County, Iowa. On September 5, 1906, she was married to William R. Maynard of
Jackson Township, where they subsequently made their home. Her death came
suddenly and unexpectedly on November 9, 1931, the result of a paralytic stroke
she suffered earlier that same day. Surviving her were her husband and eight of
their ten children. Twin daughters died shortly after birth in 1911. She was a
wonderful wife and mother, her first thoughts always being for her family. She
was possessed of a most pleasing personality and was held in the highest esteem
by all who were fortunate enough to make her acquaintance. She belonged to the
G. L. F. W. Club and the auxilliary of the Farmers Union. She was a very active
member and was always present at the meetings unless sickness kept her at home.
A few years prior to her death, she took the correspondence work in Jackson
Township, for the Denison Bulletin and was a faithful co-worker on the staff.
Mayme and William celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on September 3, just
two months prior to her death. Among those in attendance at her funeral were Mr.
and Mrs. Charles Huber, Mr. and Mrs. Archie Huber, Wm. Huber Jr., Miss Mayme
Kunes and Miss Vernie Huber, all of Melrose, Wisconsin.
