Esteemed Westfield Young Woman Dies In Denver, Colo.

Grief and sadness came to this entire community when word was received of the passing of Mrs. Delbert (Addie Jane) Maynard, of Westfield, on Saturday afternoon, February 15, in Denver, Colo., where she had undergone a kidney transplant operation in December, 1963.

Mrs. Maynard had been recuperating well until two days before when she suffered an unexpected relapse. She was residing with her mother, Mrs. Ivyl Knapp, at an apartment for out-patient treatment.

Suffering from nephritis, a fatal kidney disease, Mrs. Maynard was scheduled originally to receive a donor kidney from her mother. However, when it was learned her motherís kidney from her husband was transplanted. It was the first kidney transplant between a husband and wife at the hospital.

Relatives in Westfield were informed of the death by telephone from Denver by MRS. Maynardís mother, Mrs. Dewey Maynard of Westfield, who had called Sioux City relatives earlier Saturday to state that the younger Mrs. Maynardís condition had become critical.

Mr. Maynard who had returned to Westfield, was recalled to Denver when his wifeís condition worsened.

She was a member of the Westfield Congregational church, of the Ladies Aid Society, the church council, and active in the choir.

Mrs. Maynard had a fondness for animal life, especially dogs and horses, and was a member of the Sioux Valley Kennel Club and was on its board of directors.
