Notes for Ida Leona SALING

Another of My School Mates Passed Away
     published Thursday, August 12, 1937, The Van Alstyne Leader

On my return home on the evening of July the 25th, I was informed that Mrs. Ida Saling Wilson had passed over death's chilly stream; and her remains placed in the home of the silent dead. This gave me deepest regrets and made me to realize that another of the many of my acquaintances of my childhood days, now numbered with others of whom I had enjoyed association in the long-long ago.

Memory tells me of the many times I had enjoyed pass time sports on the school ground with her and others of my school attendants; and especially does it recall the many times we joined in lessons and singing in the Sunday School at the old Warden School house, under the superindendance of John Willard (who has long time lived at Celina, Texas).

Then, too, I am reminded that Jeff Wilson, having attended schools, singings, and Sunday School there, had developed that degree of affection for Miss Ida which brought about their union that lasted until death separated. Of Ida it only fair to say she was ever faithful in the discharge of life's duties, and to say she was apt in learning, obedient to the summons of her divine Master and Savior, loyal as a neighbor, faithful to the home.

In a more touching form of expression, I speak of her as follows:

In her childhood's happy days
She did her daily duties well;
Was modest in her words and ways
The truth she'd ever tell.

Kind to parents, sister, brother
Made life pleasant for her guests;
Loved she the right more than all other
In youth, Christ's name she had confessed.

Cared she for her children ever.
Stove to make this life all joys.
Instructed wrong did she...no- never.
Advised aright, her girls and boys.

For neighbors, friends and kindred dear,
She had a word of worthwhile good
Ever tried to make life cheer
Never failed to praise her God.

May all who knew this faithful mortal
Of her sufferings here below
Strive to meet her in that portal
Where pain and sorrow is no more.

..........J. E. Nichols.
