ObituaryNov 19, 1925  OBITUARY: Mrs. Dora Boles Cline, wife of Robert W. Cline, died last week Thursday morning at 1:15 o'clock at her home, 30 North Main Street, aged 73 years. For the past six years Mrs. Cline had been in declining health. Last February she suffered partial paralysis from which she recovered. In the early morning of October 22 she fell down stairs, suffering many bruises, although no bones were broken. She was confined to the bed, however, except for a few hours each day. On Friday, November 14, pleura pneumonia developed. She lapsed into a state of unconsciousness three days before her death from which she did not recover.

Mrs. Cline was born at Osnabruck, Ont., February 17, 1852, daughter of John and Margaret Scott Boles. She lived there until 15 years of age, when she came to Massena, living with friends and relatives here and at Louisville Landing until her marriage at Louisville Landing on November 2, 1876, since which time she had lived in Massena.

Surviving, besides her husband, are two brothers, Oliver Boles, of White River Junction, Vt., and Matthew Boles, of South Royalton, Vt; and three sisters, Mrs. Rachael Smith, of Sharon, Vt., Mrs. James Richards, of Louisville, and Mrs. Guy Grant, of the Springs. There are also two step-sons, Fred Cline of Newbury, Vt., and Albert H. Cline, of Niagara Falls; one step-daughter, Mrs. Albert Dow, of Exeter, N.H; and an adopted daughter, Mrs. Ruth Boles Campbell, wife of Rev. Harry C. Campbell, of Waterville, N.Y., who was with her several days before death. All of the children were present for the funeral. Another sister, Mrs. Susan Hessen, died here last February.

Mrs. Cline was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, from where the funeral was held Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. F. E. Loan officiating. Burial was made at the old Congregational cemetery. Rev. Norman McLellan and Rev. George H. Stone, pastor of the Advent Christian church, assisted in the services. Mrs. Cline enjoyed a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. Floral and other tributes only partially expressed the high esteem in which she was held.
