WILCOX Mrs. Elizabeth Wilcox was born in Delmar County, PA. on Dec. 24, 1820, and died Nov. 30, 1910, aged 85 years, 11 months and 6 days. The funeral services were held at the Baptist church Friday Dec. 2. Rev. Hulet of the Baptist church at Park Rapids preached the
sermon. Of her life he said, "Aunty Wilcox" as she was lovingly called by all, was an earnest and considerate example of what a Christian life may be. From the days of her girlhood she lived with an abiding faith in Jesus, her savior and sought in all things to please her
master. She was companionable in nature, loving her friends and delighting in their fellowship. She especially delighted in the company of children and enjoyed having them in her home. While having no children of her own she took young relatives into her home
and these learned to love her as a mother indeed. True to her savior , true to her friends she did what she could to make this world brighter and better and hundreds she met in her long pilgrimage rise up to call her blessed. To these there remain a memory of her sweet patient life
and a glorious hope of reunion which comes to those who trust in Jesus." These words will be accepted by all who knew her. She came to Minnesota in 1897 and has since made her home with her niece Mrs. Elizabeth Hinds. She had been a member of the Baptist church for the past 74 years always an active and diligent worker until the
past three years, her strength and sight failing her she has regretfully resigned the work to others but still ready with wise and loving council. Gladly and joyfully she past on home only regretting the dear friends she must leave behind.(A clipping in the Otis Beardsley
scrapbook.)
