Description: Mrs. Nathan Wilson.

Date: August 26 1915

Newspaper published in: Houston, MO

Mrs. Nancy Wilson died at her home in this city last Sunday morning at 6 o'clock. Mrs. Wilson has been in poor health for a long time, but was feeling as well as usual until 9 o'clock Saturday night, when she became suddenly dangerously ill and passed away at the hour above mentioned.

Mrs. Wilson, whose maiden name was Samuels, was born in Indiana September 15, 1835, making her age at time of death 79 years, 11 months and 7 days. She was married three times - first to Henry Raynor, seven children resulting; then to Jack Orvis, three children resulting; to her last union to Nathan Wilson, in 1881, there were no children. The surviving children are William Raynor, of California, and Mrs. Susan Wilson, Charles Raynor and Mrs. Belle Guiles, all of Houston. All except William were present at the funeral. Mrs. Wilson was converted and united with the Baptist church at Ozark, Christian county, Mo., about 45 years ago, but never changed her membership.

Funeral services were conducted at the home Monday forenoon at 10 o'clock by rev. G. W. Plumb. Using the 103rd Psalm as a scripture lesson. Brother Plumb preached a sermon that brought comfort to the sorrowing hearts and inspired his hearers to a higher plane of living.

Though Mrs. Wilson lived a quiet and secluded life, she was a good woman and a true Christian and often bore testimony that she was ready to meet her Saviour. She had been a resident of Houston for many years.

To the faithful husband in his loneliness and to the sorrowing children our people extend sympathy.
