"I only saw great grandma Fowler a very few times, but remember her having long thin hair which was long enough for her to sit on and also that her dau Maude Adina Fowler would comb and braid it for her, then coil it around her head.

Maude's husband was failing in health, so they went to California in hopes of it being helpful for him, but it was too late.For some reason Aunt Maude decided to move to Portland, OR and my husband who was called back in service contacted her and drove her from SanDiego, CA to Portland and continued on to Spokane, WA where we were living. When Aunt Maude died 5 Mar 1967 in Portland, OR her ashes were sent to Lewiston, ME to be put in the grave of her mother."
