Wednesday, May 13, 1942 The Georgetown Herald provided a biography of Maud after her death, noting that for the previous two years she had been in ill health. The writer emphasized the “freshness and simplicity of style” that marked her writing. There was not much to say about her time in Norval, other than the fact that the family had lived in the village for a few years and Ewan was minister. But across the country fans of LM Montgomery mourned the loss of their beloved author. I know that there were pilgrimages made to her gravesite today to offer Maud floral tributes and thanks for her work.
