      Obituary from the Susanville LASSEN COUNTY TIMES, Tuesday, 16 April 1991, page 1c4-6:

      AREA RANCHER DIED SUDDENLY

      Lifelong Milford resident Donald J. Don Wemple died at his home in Milford April 12. As of press time, no cause of death was immediately known.

      The death of Wemple came unexpectedly and within weeks of Joe Roberts, another long time Milford resident and neighbor of Wemple.

      He was born in Susanville, September 16, 1917, and worked on the family ranch for 44 years. The Wemple family settled in the Honey Lake Valley in the late 1800's.

      Among Wemple's many associations were the Lassen County Cattlemen's Association, the Farm Bureau, the Lassen County Sheriff's Posse, and the Plumas Sierra Rural Electric Board.

      Survivors include his wife, the former Gay Corder, son Ken of Milford and daughter Donna McClelland of Standish, his father Claude Wemple of Milford, brothers Glenn of Milford and David of Orland, four grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

      Services were scheduled for April 15 at Lucero Carlson Mortuary Chapel with burial at the Milford Cemetery.
