Wright, Ada B. (6 APR 1881 - 9 FEB 1929)

Mrs. Fred Wright, for more than a quarter of a century a resident of the town of York, Clark County, Wis., passed away at her home there Saturday, Feb. 9, 1929, aged 47 years, 10 months and 3 days. She had been in poor health for several months, the result of a stroke of apoplexy.

Mrs. Wright, whose maiden name was Ada Belle Henigan, was born at Sycamore, Ill., April 6, 1881. She grew to womanhood there and was married at Sycamore on April 28, 1900 to Fred Wright. They came at once to Clark County and settled on a farm in the town of Sherwood. After living there three years they moved to their present home in York. Until rendered practically helpless by her sudden illness over a year ago, Mrs. Wright led an active and busy life. She took a great interest in the education of her children, no effort nor sacrifice being too great to help them along in their school life. The care of her home and family, however, did not deter her from being a helpful member of the community, and she won the respect and good will of all who knew her.

She leaves to mourn her death her husband and eleven children, seven daughters and four sons: Alta, Mrs. G. H. Plucinski of Florence; Miss Kathryn, teacher in the County Training School at Rhinelander; Miss Hope, teaching at Sharon, Wis.; Miss Bernice at home; Miss Vera, teaching the Reed School; Miss Fern, teaching in the Catlin School, town of Sherman; Glen, Olive, Harold, Frederick and Clayton at home She also leaves four sisters and three brothers.

The funeral was held at the home Tuesday afternoon, Rev. S. J. Lambright officiating. Burial took place in the Neillsville Cemetery.
