Parkhill, Belle (? - 20 OCT 1929)

Mrs. George B. Parkhill, formerly well known resident of Clark County, died in a Madison Hospital Oct. 20, 1929, after an illness of only one day. Mrs. Parkhill spent her early life in Thorp, Clark County, Wis. Her maiden name was Belle Salisbury. After her marriage to Attorney George B. Parkhill, they continued to live in Thorp for many years, later moving to Abbotsford, where they resided until going to Madison a few years ago. Mrs. Parkhill was an active worker in the church and the W.C.T.U. While living in this county she was president of the Tri-County W.C.T.U. for some time, and presided at many meetings and had a wide circle of friends in Clark Marathon and Wood Counties. Since living in Madison she had largely extended her acquaintance.

The funeral was held Oct. 22 at the First Methodist Church in Madison, Rev. Harlan C. Logan officiating. A large delegation of members of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union attended the funeral, and many relatives and friends from all over the state were present.

She is survived by her husband, one son, Oakley B. Parkhill, and two daughters.
