Obituary for Maurice Anderson, Buried at Eloise Cemetery

The Lewiston Daily Sun, May 31, 1944
In all the years that I've been scrubbing the internet floors for Eloise material I've never come across an actual obituary for a burial at the cemetery there. With such a large extended family it would seem unlikely that Maurice Anderson would need a pauper's burial but apparently they were unwilling to foot the bill. The odd part is that they went about it as if he was being interred in just your average cemetery by putting out an obituary. But strange were the ways of Eloise so it's kind of expected isn't it?
