Miss Doub some time ago gave the famous Doub's Woods to Washington County for use as a park with the understanding that many of the trees would not be cut down. A part of her land was purchased for erection of the new senior high school along the Downsville Pike. Students at the school will have the use of the park which was given by Miss Doub as a memorial to her parents.

Miss Doub fell seven weeks ago and fractured a femur bone in her leg. She had been confined to hte hospital ever since the accident.

She was born and reared and lived her entire life in the vicinity Hagestown. She was the last survivor of her immediate family. She is survived by several nieces and nephews.

The Doubs Woods was on the home farm where Miss Doub lived years ago when the section was in the country with few other houses nearby.
