Both a farmer and a teacher, he was a former president of the Monona County Farm Bureau; member of the Farm Security Board; Chairman of the Boy Scout Council; Departmental Superintendent of the Monona County Fair; a member of the Administrative Board and Choir of the United Methodist Church; and taught in the West Harrison Community High School until retiring in 1975.

Elroy Maule died April 19, 1984. His survivors include his wife, Evangeline, of Onawa, Iowa; his son, John, of Onawa, Iowa; his daughter, Mrs. Rodger (Mary) Brubaker, of Flagstaff, Arizona; one brother, Robert, of Turin, Iowa; two sisters, Mrs. William (Lois) Beedle and Mrs. Myles (Inez) DeSomer, both of Onawa; nine grandchildren and one niece, Mrs. Frank (Genevieve) Sulek, of Lafferty, Ohio, whom he and Mrs. Maule raised.

Now Therefore, Be It Resolved by the House of Representatives of the Seventy-first General Assembly of Iowa, That in the passing of the Honorable Elroy Maule, the state has lost an honored citizen and a faithful and useful public servant, and the House by this Resolution would express its appreciation of his service.

Be It Further Resolved, That a copy of this Resolution be spread upon the Journal of the House, and that the Chief Clerk be directed to forward an enrolled copy to the family of the deceased.
