Miss Mary Cecelia G. Wilson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank H. Wilson of the town of Weston, passed away at 5 p.m., April 4, 1940, at the Neillsville Hospital, after an illness of about two weeks.

Funeral services were held Monday, April 8, at 9:30 a.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Rev. J. A. Biegler officiating, and burial taking place in the Catholic Cemetery. The pallbearers wereL Harold Langreck, Franklin Zickert, and Clifford Brown, Neillsville; Wilbur Hammersbach and Francis and Joseph Herr, Greenwood.

Miss Wilson was born in the town of Weston May 10, 1923, and was, therefore, 17 years and 17 days of age.

The members of the sodality attended the funeral in a body and were an escort of honor. Many of the members of her class were also in attendance.

She was also a member of the Junior League of the Farmers Equity Union.
