Miss Alice Yale Dead
After acute illness and suffering covering a period of five days and after a life spent as a semi-invalid, Miss Alice Maud Yule responded to her Master’s call on Wednesday, July 24, and went to her heavenly home. Her death followed an operation which was resorted to as a last effort to save her life. So serious was her condition that surgeon and physician held out not hope from the very beginning. All was done that ministering and loving hands could do, but providence decreed otherwise.
Miss Alice Maud Yule, oldest child of Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Yule was born October 23, 1886, at Clinton, Iowa. Her early school days were spent at Clinton. At the age of sixteen years she came to Holstein to make her home with her grandparents and resided here ever since. She was handicapped by physical ills and other impediments, which compelled her to refrain from the full and greater life which is the ambition of every normal youth. Undaunted however, she took advantage of her handicap and in a sportsmanlike way made the best of life and took a keen interest in everything that transpired about her as well as in the world at large. When twelve years of age she joined the Congregational church in Clinton and at the same time consecrated her life to her Master, whose she was and whom she served. On coming to Holstein she affiliated with the Methodist church and was ever a consistent and faithful member until her transfer to the Church Triumphant. Whenever her physical condition permitted she was in her place on Sunday and all other gatherings of her church. She served in an official way on various occasions. The last years she held the office of Communion steward. Fraternally she was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She was esteemed and loved by her sister Stars who were here in a body and mourn her going on before.
She is survived by her mother, Mrs. Carrie Yule, by her sister, Mrs. Susan Yule-Hulse of Kingsley, and brother, Harry of Omaha. Her father preceded her in death seven years ago. Funeral services were held on Friday afternoon at the Methodist church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. A. W. Gauger. Mrs. Edwin Jatho and Mrs. M. R. Soth sang several duets. Her body was tenderly bedded in the Holstein cemetery where the Eastern Stars took part in the service.
