Emma Livengood, 89, Pioneer, Is Taken

Mrs. Emma Livengood, 89, member of a pioneer north-central Idaho family, died suddenly at her home at Lapwai at 9:15 yesterday morning. She had been in good health, members of the family said.

Born in Missouri, Oct. 24, 1857, Mrs. Livengood was married to John Livengood at Topeka, Kan., Dec. 2, 1877, and they crossed the plains in 1890, settling in Oregon for a short time. Mr. Livengood died 20 years ago.

After a short residence at Pullman, the family moved to Leland where they lived several years. When Nez Perce reservation lands were opened to settlement, the family moved to Mohler, where they homesteaded in 1895.

To Lapwai In 1911

In 1911 Mr. and Mrs. Livengood moved to Lapwai.

She was a member of the Lapwai Methodist church.

Survivors include two daughters, Mrs. Robert Reed, Clarkston, and Mrs. Frank Riley, Spokane; three sons, O. C. Livengood, Lapwai, U. H. Livengood, Lapwai, and E. M. Livengood, Seattle, and one sister, Mrs. Nancy E. Lundia, Lapwai. She is also survived by 26 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren.

The body is at the Brower-Wann chapel. Funeral services will be held Saturday at 11 from the chapel.
