DEATH'S SUDDEN SUMMONS TO MRS. FRED WILSON
An Usually Sad Death After Only a Brief Illness
One of the saddest deaths to occur in Bloomington in years was that of Mrs. Theresa Wilson, wife of Fred Wilson, which occurred at five o'clock this morning at the Jude Wilson residence on North Walnut Street.
Last Thursday after the arrival of a fine baby boy at the Wilson home, Mrs. Wilson began to suffer with tetanus and although every effort of medical skill was used to save her life, she died this morning in a convulsion from lockjaw. The infant child is doing nicely.
The many relatives and friends of the deceased were not prepared for the awful shock of the announcement of her sudden death.
Mrs. Wilson was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Burke, South Rogers Street, former residents of Bedford and was 24 years old. She and Mr. Wilson were married about two years and a half ago and were a very devoted couple. She is survived by the husband and two children, Nancy Ellen and Benjamin Madison Wilson. Also the following brothers and sisters, William, Lawrence, and Edward Burke, and Miss Anna Burke. The deceased was a member of the St. Charles Catholic Church.
Funeral Friday morning at the St. Charles Catholic Church in charge of the Rev. Father M. H. Bogemann.
