AUGUST 19, 1922


After frequent intervals of painful illness, covering a long period of time, Mrs. Alice Glendora Templin, wife of James Templin, of this city, and one of Roseburg’s most charitable and best-known residents, passed peacefully away on the night of Saturday, August 19.


She was born in Flournoy Valley in this county June 24, 1854, and was the pioneer daughter of pioneer parents, John M. and Emily Wright, who arrived in Oregon and settled in Flournoy Valley in 1852, later moving to the “French settlement” and then to Roseburg, where both died a number of years ago.


Mrs. Templin had been previously married to John Van Buren, a popular sheriff of this county in the early years. Of the four children of this marriage, only one survives, that being Mrs. B. H. Moore, of Portland, who attended her mother during this last illness.


Of the immediate other surviving relatives, there are Mrs. Rowena I. Jones, of Spokane city, Washington; Mrs. L. T. Thompson, of Roseburg, and Mrs. Emily M. West, of Monrovia, California; her sisters and Calvin W. Wright and Lee S. Wright, of Portland, Oregon, her brothers, the late William T. Wright, who died recently at Long Beach, California, was also a brother. Mr. Wright, whose death was deeply regretted, served for years as cashier in the Roseburg Nation Bank, and previously in the old First National Bank, and he also held several county positions as well as high places in fraternal orders.


The funeral of Mrs. Templin will be on Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 at the Presbyterian Church. Rev. U. H. Quick will officiate. Interment will take place in the I.O.O.F. cemetery.
