Laura E. Wilson
Mrs. Laura Wilson Dies at Billings, Mont.
Mrs. Lyle Miles of Reno Junction was in Lusk last week and she had received a letter from Charles Wilson of Billings, Mont., telling of the death of his mother, Mrs. Laura E. Wilson, and as the Wilson family are former residents of Lusk, Mrs. Miles felt that their friends here would be interested in the information.
Mr. Wilson was employed as switchman here on the Chicago & North Western Railroad and was accidentally killed some 25 or more years ago while at work.
Mrs. Wilson and her son, Charles, then moved to Chadron and later to Billings, Mont., where she died Sept. 25. She was suffering from cancer and fell and broke her hip just four days previous to her death.
