Death Ends Eventful Career of Mrs. Chase
Beloved Grove Resident is Mourned by Scores of Friends

Lucie A. Chase is dead. The beloved lady, who for more than 30 years was one of Pacific Grove’s most widely known citizens, passed away quietly at 10 o’clock last night at her home on Ocean View boulevard. A native of Plainfield, New Hampshire, Mrs. Chase was 92 years old. Her last birthday Dec. 21, 1934, was an occasion of more than ordinary civic importance in Pacific Grove and indicated the high regard in which she was held by all who knew her. Funeral services will be held at the home at 2 o’clock Thursday afternoon. Rev. John Hunter, assisted by Rev. T.J. Barkle, will officiate at the services which friends of Mrs. Chase are invited to attend. Burial will be in the family pot at El Carmelo Cemetery. The Paul Mortuary is in charge of arrangements. Active in Community. Although during her later years Mrs. Chase was not able to attend many public functions she retained a keen interest in civic and community affairs to the end. During her earlier residence in Pacific Grove she was active in founding of the Woman’s Civic Club, The Colony of New England Women, the Unity Club and was also a member of the Ladies of the Grand Army. She was a member of the Mayflower Congregational church for many years and took an extremely active part in church affairs, giving generously of time and money to furtherance of work of the church. Her most notable public benefaction was erection of the new Pacific Grove museum, which was completed in 1932 and dedicated on the beloved woman’s 90th birthday. At that time she said the building was erected during her lifetime in order that she might enjoy it along with the rest of the citizens. Mrs. Chase was also interested in a number of private charities many of which are unknown to the public. Strong Character. Mrs. Chase was a woman of strong character and determination and made many strong friendships during her residence on the peninsula. She did her own thinking and once she made up her mind to do something invariably carried it through to a successful conclusion. Born in New Hampshire in 1842, she was christened Lucie Ann Moore. The Moore family has long been prominent in New England. In 1863 she married Henry B. Chase, also of a well known New England family. For 18 years they made their home in New York City and then came west, in 1876, to Colorado City, Colo. Later Mr. & Mrs. Chase came to California, later going to Portland, Oregon, where Mr. Chase entered business. In 1901 Mr. Chase retired from active business and they came to Pacific Grove to make their home. Mr. Chase passed away in 1922. Enjoyed Last Days. Mrs. Chase enjoyed to the full the last few months of her long and eventful life. She was particularly pleased with observances arranged for her birthday last December. At that time a reception was held for her in the Congregational church, the Unity club gave a dinner in her honor and the Civic club held a formal tea. The Christmas holidays, when Mrs. Chase entertained a large group of friends and relatives at her summer home, Honolulu, was another happy occasion. Surviving relatives include: Her nieces, Mrs. B.A. Lee and Mrs. Lucy B. Freeman; their sons, Roger Lee and Shirley and Clayton Freeman; a nephew, David S. Miles, all of Pacific Grove; a grandson, A.W. Chase of Oakland, and several other relatives whose homes are in the east.
