Mrs. Mabel Dunham Vogt The many Dexter friends of Mrs. Mabel Dunham Vogt, 63, were saddened to learn of her death Friday night at her winter home in Hialeah Florida. Although she has been ill since last July and had undergone two surgical operations, her condition seemed greatly improved and her sudden death was most unexpected. Mrs. Vogt was born in Boston and came to Dexter with her family when she was twelve years of age. In 1893 she was married to William F. Dunham and went to live on the large farm, formerly known as the Dunham place above Lake Wassookeag. A few years before his death, eleven years ago, they bought a home in Florida and spent their winters there. In 1929 she married Mr. Vogt, a prosperous farmer of Alger, Ohio, still maintaining the winter home in Hialeah. Mrs. Vogt was a member of the Dexter Universalist church, Martha Washington Rebekah lodge and Dexter Grange, and was an active worker in the interests of any organization with which she was affiliated. Surviving besides the husband, is a daughter, Mrs. Anna Thiel, a registered pharmacist in Miami, two granddaughters, Annette and Barbara Thiel; a sister, Mrs. Charles Dudley of Dexter and three brothers, Ivory Peavey of Bangor, M. H. Peavey of Massachusetts and E. J. Peavey of Garland, also several nieces and nephews. A daughter, Grace, passed away seventeen years ago. Mrs. Thiel will accompany her mother's remains to Dexter or interment in the Dunham lot at Mt. Pleasant cemetery in June.
