Mrs. Helen Wilkinson, wife of the late Judge A. W. Wilkinson, passed away at her home on West Court avenue on last Wednesday at the age of 77. She was born at Hamilton, Ohio, in 1848 and when but a small child came to Iowa with her parents. She was one of the early day school teachers of this county.

In 1871 she was married to A. W. Wilkinson, who preceded her in death of February 20th, this year.

Mrs. Wilkinson’s life was outstanding as one devoted in unselfish service to her family and to her friends.

Among her splendid traits of character was her love for children and there are scores of young people of this community who will long cherish the memory of her kindly ministrations and her sympathetic interest in their welfare.

Funeral services were held at the home on Saturday forenoon, conducted by Rev. Wm. N. Wyckoff of Des Moines.

Note: Burial was made in the Winterset cemetery.
