Mrs. Hiram W. Meek passed away at the family in Leap last Thursday, March 13, 1930.

Death was caused by cancer from which she had suffered for a year. She had been a resident of the county since 1884, living most of the time in Leap. Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the Methodist church in Wallowa, conducted by the pastor, Rev. C.E. Calome, and burial was in the Wallowa cemetery.

She was born in Union County July 29, 1868 and came to Wallowa county when 16 years old. She was married to Hiram W. Meek at Enterprise March 4, 1892 and in 1900 they settled on a homestead which has remained the family home.

Mr. Meek passed away July 18, 1924, and since then Mrs. Meek had lived with two sons, Samuel and Grover Meek, on the home place.

She was survived by another son also, Everett R. Roberts of Enterprise, and by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. Eva Parker of La Grande, Mrs. Lillie Hall of La Grande, Mrs. Dora Baker of Seattle, Wash., Frank Roberts and John A.
