The remains of Mrs. Orlie Vaughn, who passed away at Dubuque Sunday at midnight, were brought to Lyle for burial Tuesday noon and were laid to rest in the Mona cemetery. The funeral service, which was conducted by Rev. Moe, was held in the Congregational church, and was attended by a number of her old-time friends and neighbors. The Vaughns were among the early settlers in the Mona neighborhood, where they made their home for many years. Mr. Vaughn passed away twenty-five years ago. One son and three daughters have also preceded the mother to the great beyond, so her death at the age of seventy-three, marked the passing of the last of the family. She leaves two granddaughters and a few relatives in Nebraska and Wisconsin. Mrs. Vaughn had been in failing health for several years, but since last August has been very ill, and death came as a welcome relief from her suffering. The pallbearers were chosen from among the old neighbors and friends of the family, who with them, had endured the hardships and enjoyed the privileges of early pioneer days. Those from away who attended the funeral were Mrs. Meipert, of Waterloo, Iowa; a granddaughter, of the deceased, Mrs. Trenary, of Austin, Mrs. Putnam, of Ridgeway and Mrs. Mehus and Mrs. Kavorik, of Toeterville.
