THE WESTERN STAR, 22 February 1896
Obituary of MATILDA C. WRIGHT
DEATH of MRS. H. WRIGHT.

At 9:30 o'clock p.m., February 15th, 1896, Matilda C. Wright passed quietly away, at her home near Wilmore. The deceased was born in Alabama, May 5th, 1839. Became a member of the Christian church at the age of sixteen years and has always lived a true Christian life. Has been a resident of this county for about ten years. She leaves a husband and a large family of children and grandchildren to mourn her. All of the family except one son, who is at Portland, Oregon, was with her at the time of her death. The burial took place Sabbath evening, when a large number of relatives and friends followed the remains of a loved wife, mother and silver haired grandmother to their final resting place.

We miss thee from our home mother,
We miss thee from thy place,
A shadow o'er our home is cast,
We miss the sunshine of thy face.

We miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and tender care,
Our home is dark without thee,
We miss thee every where. M.W.
