She was a lady of intellectual refinement, artistic tastes, a careful reader of the higher class of literature, with a personality that drew to her a host of life long friends. Mrs. Wilson leaves no children or relatives save a niece, Mrs. John Walbridge of Toledo. She will be buried by the side of her husband in Elmwood cemetery, services being held at the house this afternoon at 3 o'clock. Interment will be private.
