MANY AT LAST RITES FOR MRS. C. A. WILSON

Pioneer Newell Lady Had Lived In This Territory Since 1889
Died Last Wednesday

Friends and acquaintances from a wide area paid their last respects to a 57 year resident of this territory, Mrs. Chas. A. WILSON, last Saturday afternoons at one of the largest-attended funerals ever held here. The services were conducted at the First Lutheran church by Rev. Ralph Okland, STURGIS, Lutheran minister, and Rev. A. E. CASH, Episcopal minister of Deadwood. Burial was in the Wilson cemetery southeast of Newell under the direction of H. O. Anderson & Son of Sturgis. Special music included two selections by the Lutheran choir with Mrs. OKLAND as accompanist, and a vocal solo by Paul A. WIEST. Pallbearers were R. D. LONG, Walter CUNNINGHAM, O. CHRISTOPHERSON, E. L. WOLD, Geo. W. COOK and Adolph JOHNSON.

Una Dell WILSON, wife of Chas. A. WILSON, passed away at her home near Newell, on Wednesday evening about 9:00 o'clock, June 11, 1941, at the age of 57 years, three months and 17 days. She was born February 25, 1884, in Redding, Iowa, daughter of John and (Maria) Jane GLOVER, and came to the Black Hills region with her pioneering parents, and settled near Vale in 1889. Fifty-two years of her life were spent in the Vale and Newell communities.

She was joined in wedlock with Charles A. WILSON, member of another pioneering family, at Lead, on December 25, 1903. Mr. and Mrs. Chas. A. WILSON made their home on a farm three miles south of Newell for the past 38 years. Into their home two daughters were born, namely Ruth Mildred and Esther Jane. The latter died March 30, 1912, at the age of 3 1/2 years.

Mrs. WILSON was a sincere homemaker and neighbor and an active club, community and church worker. She joined the All Saint's Episcopal church of Newell on May 2, 1930. She was possessed of a genial and charming personality; her wide circle of acquaintances number her many friends who held her in the highest esteem.

Mrs. WILSON was always active and hardly realized her own illness. She was taken to the hospital in Rapid City on May 21st. On June 11th, she returned home after seemingly making encouraging improvement. A stroke, sudden and without warning terminated her happy and exceedingly useful life.

She was preceded in death by her mother on June 13, 1908, her father on August 30, 1929, and an infant sister. Her brothers Day, William and Charles GLOVER, and her daughter Esther Jane. She is survived by her husband, Chas. A. WILSON; a daughter, Ruth Mildred MARTIN, and five grandchildren, all of Newell; a brother, Rome GLOVER of Sturgis; three half-brothers, John, Kenneth and George GLOVER, other relatives and a large number of close and devoted friends.
