Obituary: Marie M. (Young) Poole - Class of 1934

Mrs. Lyle Pool,
Dies at Age 56

Mrs. Lyle A. Poole, 56, of 5614 Lake Mendota Dr., vice-president of Poole's Northgate and the Northgate Lanes, died Friday (Feb. 4, 1972) in a Madison hospital after a long illness.

The former Marie M. Young was also secretary of Poole's Cuba Club. She was born in Plain, Sauk County, and was married to Mr. Poole on Mar. 8, 1941. Mrs. Poole was a member of Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church and its Queen's Guild.

Surviving besides her husband are three sons, Gary, Gregory, and Geoffrey, all of Middleton; three sisters, Mrs. Melville Johnston, 617 South Shore Drive.; Mrs. Layton Schwartz, Rhinelander; and Mrs. Donald Doman, Janesville; and three grandchildren.

Friends may call at the Joyce Funeral Home, 5701 Odana Rd., after 3 p.m. Sunday. The rosary will be recited at 7:30 Sunday night.

The funeral will be at 10 a.m. Monday at the church. Burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery.

The family suggested memorials to the American Cancer Society, and that flowers be omitted.

Note: The above was originally published in the Obituaries section of the Wisconsin State Journal on February 5, 1972. At this time, obituaries were still "news stories," written by newspaper staff, not families.

Marie Young Poole's class year is based on information in the 1934 Orange and Black yearbook, where her senior photo is included among those of the June graduates.

Thank you for posting this obituary. Marie Poole was my Grandmother whom I never had the opportunity to meet since she passed before I was born. I'm one of Geoff's kids and we still live here in Madison. Thanks again.
