Wicks, H. Mrs. – Obituary

Mrs. H. Wicks Passed This Life Sunday Noon

Another pioneer was called to the beyond this week when Mrs. H. Wicks died at her ranch home east of North Powder, Sunday morning, June 21. Mrs. Wicks had been in ill health for the past two years, and for the past several months, had been bedfast, and while her death was not unexpected, yet it cast a gloom over the entire community. She will be missed by her many friends and acquaintances, many of whom had known her for the 43 years she has spent in this section.

Mrs. Wicks was born in Ireland and had she lived until the 15th of August would have been 86 years of age. She came to this country when four years old. She was married to Harrison Wicks in Peoria, Illinois, and they together with their family crossed the plains, and came directly to North Powder, where with the exception of a short stay in the Willamette valley, they have since resided. Mr. Wicks died about four years ago, and since that time Mrs. Wicks began to fail, sadly missing her companion of many years.

Five children survive their mother. They are James E. and Clarence Wicks of North Powder, Mrs. Mary Nice and Mrs. Katie Carnes of this city, and Mrs. Belle Daugherty of Junction City. Funeral services were held from the local Methodist church Wednesday afternoon. A large crowd attended to pay their respects to their old friend, and many floral offerings were in evidence as a mute testimony of their affection. Interment was in the North Powder cemetery.
