OBITUARY ~ CATHERINE (WILKINSON) WAX

Catherine Wilkinson was born in Lancaster County, Penn, April 26, 1838. In childhood she moved with her parents to Henderson Co. Ill. where she grew to womanhood. In 1860 she was married to Smith M. Wax. Several years later they moved to Moulton, Iowa, where they resided until the spring of 1874 when they moved to Ringgold County.

In early life she united with the M. E. church and was a devoted member until her death March 21, 1925, her husband having preceded her in death Jan. 29, 1903.

She leaves to mourn her going her four sons and two daughters, namely Mrs. Etta Garside, Council Bluffs, Iowa, John Wax of Rolfe, Iowa, C L Wax of Des Moines, Mrs. Blanch Simpson and W. D. Wax of Diagonal, G O Wax, eleven grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends, for to know her was to love her.

She carried her 87 years well, was patient in her suffering, sunny in disposition and always hopeful. In death as in life she trusted her Redeemer.

The Relief Corps attended the funeral in a body, and were placed just behind the relation at the church.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist Church at 2:00 o'clock Monday. The pastor Rev A. J. Matthews was in charge, assisted by pastors Johnson and Muir. There was a large attendance of friends, and a profusion of beautiful flowers. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
