Pioneer Citizen Passes Tuesday
Mrs. Mary Wingfield, 75 Succumbs
After Several Months Illness.
One of the pioneer citizens of this section received her summons to eternity
and quietly slipped away to that land beyond the veil about 8 o'clock
Mrs. Mary Wingfield, aged 75, was the departing one, having succumbed to the
infirmities of old age after an illness which had rendered her almost
helpless for the past six months.
Mrs. Wingfield was born and reared in this section, and was well known and
loved by all. More than her allotted three score and ten years were spent in
this vicinity, during which time she witnessed the growth of this country
from a virtual wilderness into a well-settled and normally prosperous
farming section which now exists.
Funeral services were conducted at Antoine, Thursday afternoon, by Eld. J.A.
Copeland of Delight, with burial in the cemetery at that place. Deceased is
survived by one daughter, Mrs. Jessie Jacobs, Delight, and two brothers,
John Dickson of Mena, and Allen Dickson of Oklahoma.
The Tribune joins the many friends of the deceased and her family in
expressions of sympathy to the bereaved ones.
