Pacific Grove Review, CA Aug. 17, 1909
Passing of Lucie A. Hale
Miss Lucie A. Hale, who passed away August 14 was born in Chelmsford, Mass., June 15, 1832. Her father was a Congregational Clergyman who labored in several of the New England states and was highly respected by all. At the early age of sixteen Miss Hale began to teach and by this means helped to support the younger brother of her own family. She came to California in the early seventies. She was a teacher in the Golden Gate Academy in Oakland. She taught music principally. Many of the Congregational ministers who studied in the Pacific Theological Seminary in Oakland were instructed by her in vocal music. She also taught in Santa Cruz and in Wheatland. She was at one time connected with the New England Conservatory of music in Boston as preceptress. She united with the Mayflower Congregational Church of Pacific Grove in 1893 one year after the organization of the church. Twice she went back to the east uniting with churches there but each time upon her return bringing her church letter and united again with this church. She was deeply interest in all Christian work and especially in the work of this church of which she was a member. Major Hale, her brother, for several terms Postmaster in Minneapolis, Minn., and very prominent in the affairs there, has very generously cared for his siter, especially during these later months of her last illness sparing no thought or expense in her behalf. Her stepmother and three half brothers are still living, her stepmother being over 90 years old. Of her three half brothers one Dr. C.E. Hale resides in Boston; another Prof. E.D. Hale, is a teacher of music Colorado Springs, Colo., the third F.W. Hale is residing in Tacoma, Wash. Miss Hale was much loved and respected by all who were so fortunate as to be acquainted with her. Brief funeral services were held in Pacific Grove Monday afternoon Aug. 15, before the body was to be taken East for interment. She is to be buried in the family plot in Norrigde Walk, Maine, by the side of her father and mother. This is in accordance with one of her own last requests. The church of which she is a member is without a pastor the services were conducted by C.W. Merrill pastor of the Congregational Church of Saratoga who during his vacation is supplying the pulpit of the Congregational Church of Pacific Grove. Miss Mattie Hearst, in connection with the services sang very impressively the beautiful solo “Crossing the Bar.”

Hale, Louise A., age 76, died in Monterey County on Aug. 14, 1909
