    • Obituary from the BIG VALLEY GAZETTE, Bieber, Lassen County, CA, 14 June 1923, page 1c1:

      DEATH OF MRS. WEMPLE

      Mrs. Grace Durfee-Wemple of Milford, died at the Riverside Hospital, in Susanville last Monday June 11th, from the result of child birth. Mrs. Wemple was the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T.J. Durfee of Bieber, a sister of Mrs. B.G. Gassaway, and Mrs. Kelly Crews of Fall River, and Miss Dorothy Durfee of this place.

      Not only Bieber and Honey Lake Valley but the whole County of Lassen, has suffered a severe loss in the death of Mrs. Wemple. Her fine character, clear, logical mind, great learning and above all, the lovable nature of the woman, made her not only a strong personality wherever known, but has been a benefit to the whole county, through her clear, and just interpretations of the school room. She was aged 22 years, 11 months, and 26 days.

      Funeral was held in Susanville, on Wednesday, June 13th.

      Parents of Mrs. Wemple, and two sisters, Mrs. Gassaway and Mrs. Crews, were at her bedside at the time of her passing, Miss Dorothy being obliged to remain in the post office.

      Remaining relatives of the deceased have the sympathy of the entire community.
