A Good Lady Dies

Mrs. Mary H. Wikle Passes Peacefully Away at Her Home in this City.

Mrs. Mary Hooper Wikle died at her home on Erwin street in this city on Thursday last, March 22d, at 8:30 o’clock a m.

Mrs. Wikle was a good woman and the announcement was received with universal sorrow in the community. She was seventy-one years of age.

On the 21 st day of last December, Mrs. Wikle was stricken with paralysis, and her condition was pronounced dangerous. She received the most tender nursing from the members of her household and the constant care of physicians, though, and several times seemed to rally and so far as to enkindle a feeble hope that she might be restored to health, but finally the fatal turn came and at the time mentioned her sweet pure spirit was freed from its temple of clay and went to its final rest in glory’s realm, her bedside surrounded by each loving member of her family.

This being the first death in the Wikle family makes it one of marked sadness. Those who survive her are her husband, Judge J. R. Wikle, her sons, Messrs. John H., I. F., and W. H. Wikle, of this city, Dr. J. L. and Mr. C. A. Wikle of Anniston, Douglas Wikle, Esq., of Nashville, Tenn., and her daughter, Miss Mamie Wikle, the youngest of the family.

The funeral occurred from the residence on Friday and was largely attended. The services were conducted by Dr. W. F. Quillian and were touching and impressive. The six sons acted as pall bearers.

Mrs. Wikle was married to Judge Wikle December 7 th, 1845. She was a devoted wife and a loving mother. In fact there was a link of affection between her and her family so strong as to be often the subject of remark. She was a member of the Methodist church and bore a noble Christian character. This shone out in her last and final illness with great effulgence.
