Mrs. Maud Kincaid Passes At 82

Word has been received here of the death at Seattle Monday of Mrs. Maude R. Kincaid, 82, who lived here from her birth, Dec. 27, 1874, until the death of her husband, Joseph E. Kincaid, in 1944.

Since 1944 she has lived at Seattle with her son, Charles E. Kincaid. Death was attributed to infirmities of age.

Mrs. Kincaid was the daughter of S. Wildenthaller, who came to Lewiston in 1862 and opened the first grocery store here at the corner of 1sst and D Sts. Later he built the Wildenthaller Building on the south side of Main Street across from the Lewis-Clark Hotel, a building now owned by W. E. Pinch confectionary.

The original Wildenthaller home was on Snake River Ave. Before her marriage, Mrs. Kincaid was graduated from Lewiston High School and the former Lewiston State Normal School. She and Mr. Kincaid were married here in 1903 and resided at 224 9th St. Mr. Kincaid, whose parents were early Lewiston residents, managed R. C. Beach Co., at the site of the present C. C. Anderson & Co. store.

Until her husband's death, Mrs. Kincaid was active in Order of Eastern Star and was prominent in community and social activities. She visited last year at the home of her sister, Mrs. Ralph E. Perkins, 224 5th Ave.

In addition to her son and sister, Mrs. Kincaid is survived by a daughter, Mrs. John Fox of Seattle.

Funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2 at Seattle. Committal services will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 at Normal Hill Cemetery, with the Rev. E. Paul Hovey of the Congregational-Presbyterian (Federated) Church officiating.
