Wilding, Hannah #2 (20 JAN 1818 - 10 SEP 1906)
Mrs. Hannah Wilding passed quietly away on Sept. 10th, 1906 at the good old age of 88 years. Our deceased sister was born in Vermont Jan. 20th, 1818, where she married her first husband, Chas. Squires. In 1885 they came to Waukesha Co., Wis., where the year after Mr. Squires died. In 1887 Mrs. Squires was married again, this time to Geo. Wilding of Pleasant Ridge (Clark Co., Wis.), where they spent many happy years together.
Mr. Wilding preceded his wife to his eternal rest in 1893 and Etta, her daughter, in 1896.
She leaves to mourn her loss three daughters and one son, Mrs. Emma Meyers of Chicago, Mrs. Louis Baker of Pleasant Ridge, Mrs. Ella Stout of Wilton Junction, Hiram Squires of Brooklyn, N.Y.
The many years of this long life were well lived out. She died as she has always lived, a character above reproach. She ever recognized the presence of her God and never more in all her experience than in death when she said in a failing breath "God is here." What earth lost heaven gained.
