Mrs. Edward Wilcox, died at her residence in this city last Sunday morning at nine o'clock. She was afflicted with paralysis for over two years and while the visit of the angel of death was not wholly unexpected it was never the less a shock to her relatives and friends. She was born in Massachusetts, August 5, 1832. Married to Edward Wilcox, at Elyra, Ohio, August 8, 1851. Came to Kansas in May 1869. In March 1872 she came to Hutchinson where she has since resided. Mr. Wilcox held several positions of public trust and his wife was a lady prominent in social and religious circles. Deceased was a member of the Presbyterian church and was noted for her earnest christian life. The funeral took place at the family residence, conducted by Revs. A. F. Irwin, and D. M. Moore. The remains were laid to rest in the Eastside Cemetery. A husband and two children remain to mourn her loss. Upon the loss of such a wife, mother and christian, how sweet is the thought that there is no death. "The stars go down to rise upon some fairer shore; And bright in heaven's jeweled crown they shine forever more."
