Billy Wilson Dead
Billy, the three-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold K. Wilson, died at the Methodist hospital in Des Moines shortly before six o'clock Monday evening. A few weeks ago he fell with a pencil in his mouth and injured his tonsils. Infection from the wound set in about ten days ago and he was taken to the hospital. Pneumonia developed shortly after he reached the hospital. This added danger in addition to the blood poisoning was too much for the little fellow and in spite of the brave fight that he made he was not able to come through.
The body was brought home on Tuesday. Funeral services will be held at the home at two o'clock this afternoon and a short service conducted by Rev. Kepford will be at the Baptist church at 2:30.
Billy was three years old on the 26th of October. He was the youngest of three children. The older children are Dorothy Jane and Carol Rae. Billy was a manly little fellow, idolized by his parents and his grandparents and beloved by all who knew him. The bereaved family have the undivided sympathy of the community.
