Mary Jane Wing was born at Onnadago, N.Y., July 19, 1840, the daughter of John and eva Flint, and died in Neillsville, Clark County very suddenly of heart failure May 27, 1916.

On July 5, 1878 she married Andrew Wing and to them one daughter was born. Mr. Wing died on Dec. 28, 1915 at the Veteran’s Home and since then she has been making her home with her children. About two weeks ago she returned from Mather, Wis., where she had been visiting her daughter, Mrs. Russell, to spend the rest of the summer here with her son and daughter.

Mrs. Wing was a woman of good principles and to know her was to love her. She was a kind, loving mother and a good neighbor, and made many friends wherever she went. She was always pleasant, patient and cheerful.

Mrs. Wing leaves to deeply mourn her loss, five sons and three daughters, twenty-seven grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren. Her sons are Charley Forbush of Fairmont, Minn.,; Frank Forbush of Portage, Wis., Ed Forbush of Kilbourn; Harry Forbush of Millston and George Forbush of Neillsville. The daughters are Mrs. E. R. Moffatt of Hewett; Mrs. E.N. Russell of Mather and Mrs. G. Amidon of Melrose. The children were all here to attend the funeral with the exception of two sons. She leaves one sister, Mrs. F. Poole, of Brookings, S.D., and one brother, Angelo Flint, of Illinois, who were unable to attend the funeral. She was laid to rest in the Neillsville Cemetery.
