Excerpt from the Sheboygan Press, Saturday, January 4, 1930.
Simple Funeral Services Are Held for Maude Miriam Noel Wright.
Milwaukee - Mrs. Miriam Noel Wright, divorced wife of Frank Lloyd Wright, world famous architect, was buried in Forest Home Cemetery here at 11 am after simple, private funeral services. Rev. Robert S. Loring, Unitarian minister, preached the short funeral sermon. Only a few close friends attended. The entire fortune of Mrs. Wright, whose marital difficulties with the famous architect were newspaper sensations for more than four years, will be left to Mrs. Helen H. Raab, her friend, and the Chicago Art Institute, according to terms of her will, which was filed a few hours after her death at Shorewood hospital here yesterday.
