Mrs. M. Woelflen Taken By Reaper

Mrs. Margaret Woelflen, past state president of the War Mothers, charter member of the Twentieth Century club when it was organized in 1900, past president of the Altar society of St. Stanislaus parish, and active in community affairs here and in Asotin county, where the family lived for several years, died last night at 8:30 o'clock at St. Joseph's hospital of heart disease.

Mrs. Woelflen suffered a stroke several weeks ago but apparently had recovered and her condition improved until several days ago, then becoming serious.

Born In Iowa.

She was born August 31, 1868, at Farley, Iowa, and came to Lewiston about 40 years ago. During the World war she was active in Red Cross work and associated with other patriotic agencies. Twice Mrs. Woelflen represented the local chapter of War Mothers as delegate to national conventions of the organization held at Philadelphia and Los Angeles.

She is survived by a daughter, Miss Irene Woelflen, benching at Mount Vernon, N. Y.; a son, Frederick Woelflen, Los Angeles, and a brother, John Regan, Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. The son and daughter are expected to arrive in Lewiston today.

The body is resting at the Vassar-Shaughnessy-Rawls mortuary. Funeral arrangements have not been made.
