      MRS. E. N. R. H0WE RITES TOMORROW

      Funeral Will Be Conducted at Late Home, 59 Grant Avenue, by Dr. Caughey

      Funeral services for Mrs. Elizabeth Norris Rugge Howe, widow of Charles A. Howe who died early yesterday morning at her home, 59 Grant avenue, will be conducted at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the late home by the Rev. Dr. John Lyon Caughey, pastor of the Presbyterian church. While Mrs. Howe had been ill since early January, she was thought to have been much improved, and her death came suddenly . and unexpectedly.

      Born on September 4, 1858 in Glens Falls, Mrs. Howe had resided her entire life in this city, She was the daughter of the late George and Mahala Sherman Rugge. Mr. Howe, who died in 1905, for many years conducted a furniture and upholstery business, his last store being in Glen street where the Mayfair restaurant is now located. Formerly the business was in Warren street on the site of the Fleming, Collins and Noreau store. Mr. Howe retired In 1899.

      Mrs. Howe was an artist and kept up her painting until recent years. She specialized in water color work, doing some oil and china painting, her studies being carried on under the direction of prominent New York instructors and also abroad.

      The most outstanding of Mrs. Howe's interests and activities has been her association with the Mlzpah Bible Study class of the First Presbyterian church. For more than 10 years Mrs. Howe had been teacher of the class continuously until her recent illness. As a testimonial to her service in July 1931 the members of the class presented the church with a large American flag to be hung on the outside of the building and which they dedicated to Mrs. Howe. A presentation service was held on the steps of the church in which the class members, the pastor, the Rev. Dr. John Lyon Caughey and the Boy Scout troop of the church, participated.

      In addition to the Mlzpah class, Mrs. Howe was a member of the Glens Falls Coloney (sic) of New England Women, the Civic club, and a lifelong member of the Presbyterian church. In her church work she was active in many of the societies and groups, particularly in her younger years.

      Mrs. Howe la survived by one daughter, Mrs. Josephine Howe Sedgwick, with whom she resided; three sisters, Mrs. Charles B. Dix of Glens Falls, Mrs. J. S. Stuart of Daytona Beach, Fla., and Mrs. John R. Loomis, of Glens Falls, and several nieces and nephews.
