Irene Treece Wilkinson

Mrs. Paul Wilkinson, formerly Miss Irene Treece, died yesterday at Erlanger hospital after a long illness. Mrs. Wilkinson was brought back from Birmingham about three months ago and was for some time at the home of her cousin Mrs. Charles D. Gordon. She was thence taken to the home of her brother, W. L. Treece, in St. Elmo. Finally it was decided that her only chance for recovery was at the hospital.

The deceased was 19 years old and had been married for two years. She is survived by her husband, a machinist at the Chattanooga Machinery company, her mother, Mrs. Nora E. Treece and her brothers, William L., Taylor, Albert Ed and Wilfred, all living in Chattanooga. She was a consistent member of the first Baptist church and a woman of many admirable traits.

Funeral services will be held at the residence of Charles D. Gordon, 240 Oak street , at 2 o’clock this afternoon. Dr. Howard L. Jones will officiate.
