Mrs. Shipley, 85,
Pioneer Idahoan,
Passes to Reward

     Agnes Arvilla Shipley was born near Knoxville, Marion county, Iowa, Nov. 29, 1852.  At the age of five years, in the spring of 1864, she came, with her parents, to Idaho, settling in the new mining camp of Rocky Bar.  In the fall of 1869 the Shipley family moved to Boise valley, living for a year on a farm near Boise, moving a year later to a farm west of Middleton.
     In the spring of 1875 the family moved to a farm near where the town of Parma now stands, and this part of the valley remained her home until the past ten years. of her life.
     On Nov. 20, 1879, she was united in marriage to George Waite Pail, and to the union four children were born; Mrs. Bertha Morris and Mrs. Eva Leigh, both of Parma, and Mrs. Grace Hendricks of Kimberly.  Her son, Ernest Paul, preceded her in death in 1933.  Her husband passed away in 1901.  Besides her daughters she is survived by 18 grand-children and 13 great-grandchildren.
     She united with the Christian church at the age of 18, and remained a faithful, earnest member all through life.  Mrs. Paul was always interested in the upbuilding and advancement of the community in which she lived, and was one of the pioneer dairy women and apiarists of Idaho, receiving a bronze medal at the Buffalo Exposition for her display of comb honey.  She was a great lover of flowers, and furnished innumberable bouquets for church services, and for the sick and sorrowing.
