Hanson, Alice M. (31 DEC 1887 - 12 FEB 1924)

Alice M., daughter of George and Mary McKend Phillips, was born Dec. 31st, 1887 and departed this life Feb. 12, 1924, aged 37 years, 1 month and 11 days.

The deceased spent most of her life in Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. with her parents, where her upright walk in life gained for her the confidence of all who knew her.

After the death of her mother, which sad event occurred July 3rd, five years since, she assumed the care and responsibilities of the home for her father, an as far as was in her power, devoted herself to his comfort and happiness until the time of her death.

On Aug. 9, 1913, she was united in matrimony with Henry Hanson of Rockford, Ill. No children were born to this union. After her marriage she and her husband lived at Rockford, Ill., and near Waukesha, Wis., till about five years ago, when after he mother's death they returned to Neillsville to make their home here.

Mrs. Hanson confessed Christ and united with the Presbyterian Church a number of years since, while she was yet a young girl. She was very active for a number of years in the work of her church, and continued to do so until her mother's health failed and she must devote much of her time to the household cares and administer to the mother's comfort, which Christian duties she did till her mother was taken to her reward. She had found much pleasure in her service with the church people as opportunity afforded, and in the latter part of her life she frequently did Christian service with the Ladies Aid of the Reformed Church in Neillsville, with whom she had a number of associates.

Mrs. Hanson was a faithful wife and daughter, beloved by those who knew her best, and highly respected and esteemed by her neighbors and associate, all of who will cherish many precious memories of her life.

She leaves to mourn their bereavement her husband and aged father, besides a host of friends.

She was called to her reward very suddenly, after a brief illness, such events are among the inscrutable things of human life, we cannot know now, we cannot understand these things. But it is ours to accept in faith and submissiveness the inerrant dealings of Him "who doeth all things well", and who will lovingly "turn out all things for good to them who love Him."

The Christian here falls asleep only to awake in the new day of inexpressible light and joy in the Father's house of many mansions.

The funeral services were conducted from the late residence at 2:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 14th, Rev. G. J. Donnell officiating, and the burial was made at the Neillsville Cemetery.
