Mrs. Boucher nee Lulu I. Probart passed her childhood and young girlhood in St. Charles. Having lost her other when quite young, her father, taking the place of both father and mother to her, kept house, and they had one of the most open and hospitable homes in the city of St. Charles.

For a number of years Miss Probart was a popular and lovable clerk in H. J. Keeler's store.

From here Mr. Probart and his daughter went to Post Falls, Idaho where she went into the dry goods business leaving a host of friends and loved ones behind.

After disposing of her business to Ole Kjos she was married to Mr. Boucher and went to Walla Walla to reside. Her father, who died a few years ago, made his home with them.

Mrs. Boucher leaves besides her husband one daughter, and the hearts of many friends here go on in sympathy to them in their bereavement."
