Our community was shocked Monday morning of last week to learn of the death, at Chicago, of Miss Annetta Wilcox, at 5 o'clock the evening before, August 11. Miss Wilcox was born near this place in Union township, April 3, 1868. She came with her father's family to Columbus Junction in 1881 and this continued her home until about a month prior to her death, when she moved with her sister and youngest brother to Chicago. She was among one of the first graduates from our high school and was always prominent in church and social circles, though a model of domestic virtue. Almost all her mature life was devoted to the care of others. Annetta Wilcox was a noble woman whose life was mostly devoted to the happiness and comfort of others. Since girlhood she had been a faithful member of the Presbyterian church at this place. Her death was a sudden one, she having been sick only about five days. She was brought back her for interment and tenderly laid besides her parents who had only preceded her a few years. She leaves one sister, Mrs. Jacob Foster, of Chicago and four brothers to mourn the loss of a devoted sister. The brothers are O. P and F. N., of this place; James, of Waitsburg, Washington and S. S., of Chicago. All were here to attend the last and services except James. Her funeral took place from the Presbyterian church, this palace, Tuesday afternoon, August 13, conducted by Rev. J. S. Cotton, of Crawfordsville. Short services were held at the home in Chicago at 10:30 Monday morning conducted by Dr. Finger and Rev. Landwer. The pallbearers were her nephews, Frank and Robt. Wilcox, Sam and Miles Buteher, Edgar Todd and Willie Foster. The honorary pallbearers were all her Sabbath school class.
