Mary Martha (Spaulding) Maus, 94, formerly of Attica, who had been residing at Wynnfield Crossing, Rochester, passed away at 2:15 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012 at Wynnfield Crossing.

Mary was born on March 27, 1918, in Sharpsville. She was the daughter of the late Nathan Edgar and Emma (Nieman) Spaulding. Following her mother's passing, Mary was raised by her uncle and aunt, Charles C. and Martha Spaulding in Sharpsville. She was a graduate of Sharpsville High School in 1936.

Mary met her future husband, Dale Maus, when he came to work for Shull Funeral Home in Sharpsville, and they were married on Feb. 28, 1937, in Sharpsville. Mary and Dale later moved to Goodland and in 1941 moved to Attica, where Dale began working for DeSutter Funeral Home. She and her husband purchased L.C. Roemer & Son Funeral Home in June of 1971, and started what is now Maus Funeral Home. Dale preceded her in death on Feb. 28, 1996.

Mary had worked as a dental assistant to Dr. Paul Sullivan in Attica. She later worked for Mavis Carney in the Sears Catalog Store in Attica. In her early life, she was a stay-at-home mother, where she raised her three children. She was an excellent cook and great baker.

Mary was a member of the Attica First United Methodist Church. Mary was a former member of Attica Chapter 125 Order of the Eastern Star, and she just recently received her 75-year pin for her membership in the Fern Chapter No. 194 O.E.S. She had served as deputy of District No. 16 O.E.S. for the state of Indiana and also was selected to be Grand Representative to the state of Texas for O.E.S. She was a member of the Pythian Sisters and a retired member of the Psi Iota Xi Sorority in Attica.

(Valarie) Maus, Attica; six grandchildren, Lisa (Mike) Malone, Lora (Lee) White, Molly and Ben Vass, and Nathan and Amy Maus; four great-grandchildren, Megan (Brandon) Miller, Morgan Malone, Matthew White and Wyatt Maus; a great-great-granddaughter, Jaclyn Leigh Miller; and a special niece, Candi Crye, of Fort Myers, Fla.

She was preceded in death by her two brothers, Ford and Lou Spaulding and her three sisters, Lula Henderson, Letha Wilburn and Ruth Scheiber.
