Mrs. Alice Wilson, 74, Rests Beside Daughter on
Canyon Hill


     Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon for Mrs. Alice Wilson, 74, who died at her home on Kimball avenue Friday morning following an illness of several years.  A stroke, the final one of a series, was the immediate cause of Mrs. Wilson's death.
     The Rev. F. E. Springer conducted the services and burial was in Canyon Hill cemetery beside her daughter, Kate, who died several years ago in Portland.
     Two children survive.  They are Nell Wilson, who holds a position in the News-Tribune office, and an older brother, Will Wilson of Mountain Home.  Both were with their mother when she died.
     The family has resided in Caldwell for 40 years with the exception of an eight year period when they lived in Boise.  They came to Idaho from Holton, Kansas.  Mrs. Wilson was born in West Virginia.
