A brief notice by our North Prairie correspondent last week recorded the death of a beloved woman, Mrs. Jennie Wilson Aplin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Wilson, and wife of George G. Aplin, whose demise followed a surgical operation at a hospital in Milwaukee.
A friend writing of Mrs. Aplin's death says: "It has been long since this community has been so saddened as it is at the present time. "Jennie," as she was familiarly known had been the picture of health, scarcely knowing what a sick day was until a few short weeks ago when she was found to be suffering from nervous goitre. After trying medical treatment at Waukesha, it was found that an operation would be the only means to save her life, and that only a chance. She was operated upon at Milwaukee hospital and regained consciousness for a number of hours but the heart was too weak to stand the strain and she passed away Friday at 12:30 p. m., aged 30 years. It is not necessary to attempt to tell of the place she had held in the community; a listening ear in any home would give one an idea of the sorrow felt. A member of the M. E. church, a worker in its societies, the life of social gatherings, her place cannot be filled. The funeral was held Tuesday at 10:30 at the church. It was one of the largest funerals held here in years, many being present from surrounding towns. Rev. J. W. Perry spoke in a fitting manner of the life and the character of the departed. Interment was in the North Prairie cemetery.
Another friend writes : In the death of Mrs. George Aplin North Prairie has lost one of its choicest daughters. Though called early from this world she lived long enough to be widely known and dearly loved. She was an affectionate daughter, a loving wife and a tender mother, and a sister in the truest sense of the word. Never was anyone happier than she when engaged in doing some kind act or ministry of love. Throughout her life she was associated with the Christian church. Faithful in her attendance, loyal in her support, she sought to enhance the kingdom of God upon earth. She was an active member of the Ladies' Aid society and loved to attend its gatherings. She has gone but the fragrance of her useful life will abide in the memory of those who knew her.
"Jesus, thou prince of life,
Thy chosen cannot die.
Like Thee, they conqueor in the strife
To reign with Thee on high."
