Howell and Emma Warner Pierce ~ The Second Couple to be Superintendent and Matron of the Friends Boarding Home

The author of this obituary does not explain that the Howells were the superintendent and matron of the Friends Boarding Home twice. Thier first tenure was form 1915 to 1925, after the death of Aaron B. Chandler. Their second tenure was after the death of Alonzo S. Curl, from 1933-1938. For more details about the tenure at the Friends Boarding Home, see,
The Miami Gazette, Thursday, September 1, 1938

Mrs. Howell Peirce, who has been matron of the Friend’s Home for the past fifteen years, has retired. Mr. Peirce, acting as superintendent, served with her until his death three years ago. Mrs. Peirce celebrated her eightieth birthday last April. During her long period of service in this community, she has endeared herself not only to her family, as she called the members of the Home, but to the entire community. She possesses one of those charming personalities which enable her to meet people and place them at friendly ease. She radiates vitality which may well be the envy of all. At her last dinner at the Home, Monday evening, a large cake graced the table which bore the inscription, “Fifteen Years of Loving Service”. The ladies of the Home presented her with a beautiful bouquet of mixed flowers. Mrs. Peirce is planning to spend this winter with her son, Raymond, and family of Toledo. Afterwards she will make her home with her sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Calvert, at the ancestral home near Selma. Foster and Margaretta Heacock are acting as superintendent and matron of the Home.
The Howells had two children:
  • Warner ~ 1879
  • Raymond ~ b. 1883
  • Bertha E. ~ b. 1891

From Census Records we know that Howell had been a farmer and then a salesman. In 1910 the family was living in Toledo, Ohio.

I am the great grandaughter of Emma Warner Peirce. I was very pleased to find information about her to pass along to my children! My grandmother was Emma's third child, Bertha, and was a wonderful role model for all of the children in my family.

What a wonderful surprise when my sister Mary Ann Fehlen texted me that she'd found our great grandparents on the internet! Emma Warner Peirce lived with her only daughter, Bertha, our dear grandmother, prior to Emma's death, and I remember her. I was very young at the time, but I remember her as a strong, stately woman. My 3 siblings and I heard stories of my great-grandparents as we grew up, and I longed to know more about them. Thank you so much for your research!
