Died in Union Monday May 11, 1923, Mrs. Viola V. Davis, age 56 years, 7 months and 13 days.

Viola V. Wilkinson was the daughter of William and Mary Wilkinson. She was born in High Valley, October 1st, 1867. She was married to Robert V. Davis October 11, 1885.

To this union nine children were born. She is survived by her husband and seven children, two having preceded her to the great beyond. Those remaining are: Amos Davis, Mrs. Charlotte Wheeler, Mrs. Mary Allen, Mrs. Lulu Burford, Miss Cora Davis, William and Lewis Davis. A little grandson left by the daughter who passed on was taken into the family and raised as their own. Two sisters-Mrs. Kate Bates and Mrs. Bertha Rundell; four brother-W. O. Wilkinson of California; Albert of Union, Thomas and William of Idaho, and other relatives and a host of friends mourn her passing.

She was a faithful, loving and devoted wife and mother. Her husband has been an invalid for two years and she did everything possible to alleviate his suffering. She was always cheerful and devoted to him. She was a good kind neighbor ever ready to help those in trouble or in need and sought opportunities to render service. Such a person will be sadly missed, but it was God’s will and we humbly say “Thy will be done.”

“How sweet to think that on our eyes-
A lovelier clime shall yet arise,
That we shall wake from sorrow’s dream
Beside a pure and loving stream.”
