Nancy Maule: 1923 -2008

By on Mon, October 6, 2008

Longtime Montara resident Nancy Maule passed away on September 16, 2008. She was an accomplished artist, a wife and mother, and active member of he community. But she is best known as a pioneering advocate for controlled growth and open space preservation, most importantly in stopping of the massive subdivision of Montara’s rural lands and in the prevention of the construction of the Devils Slide Freeway Bypass over Montara Mountain.

Whether you agreed with her or not, one had to respect her integrity and dedication to the preservation of her community and its surrounding natural environment. Nancy Maule embodied the independence, creativity, and tenacity of the Midcoast communities. She will be missed.

There is an obituary in this week’s Half Moon Bay Review and a profile on June Morrall’s Half Moon Bay Memories site.
