Brown, Maud T. (26 JUN 1908 - 5 FEB 1924)
God loves a shining mark, and therefore has called another to the heavenly home.
Maud Thelma Brown was born at Greenwood, Clark County, Wis., June 26, 1908, where she grew to young womanhood. She attended the public school, having been a member of the Sophomore Class. She was also an active worker in the M.E. Church and Sunday school.
On Tuesday, Jan. 29, Maud was taken ill with pneumonia and pleurisy.
Everything that willing hands and loving hearts could do was done for her, after a brief illness of one week, she passed away at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5th, 1924.
Although she suffered great bodily pain, Maud was courageous and patient to the end. Her death was beautiful in that she fell asleep in Jesus, reminding those who cared for her of a drooping flower that at last withers and falls.
Maud has been transplanted from the garden of earth to her home above, where flowers never cease to bloom.
She saw beauty in every thing, being a lover of nature and was especially fond of children.
This naturally warmed all hearts toward her and made her a general favorite among both old and young. She always thought of others rather than self and her last hours were passed in speaking of members of the family and their welfare.
Funeral services were held Thursday at 2:00 p.m. at the M.E. Church, Rev. Thompson delivering a very appropriate sermon and the High School attending in a body.
The floral offerings were most beautiful and the day, although cold, was bright. As Maud was borne to the Greenwood Cemetery and laid to rest, an occasional snow flake fell pure and white, so typical of her young life.
She leaves to mourn her loss her parents Mr. and Mrs. Bert Brown, one sister and four brothers, one brother Russel having preceded her n death seven years ago.
