Full Text

Services for Mrs. Alice E. Wheelock, who died Tuesday, October 9, were held from the residence at 830 Central avenue, Thursday afternoon.

Mrs. Wheelock had lived in Wilmette for the past forty years and was especially prominent in the activities of the First Congregational church. Mrs. Wheelock was a charter member of the Wilmette Woman's club and was very recently made an honorary member of that organization. Her work with the Travel club, which is organized to promote social and educational development in foreign countries, was largely responsible for the success of their publications which were distributed all over the world.

Dr. Stephen A. Lloyd, pastor of the First Congregational church, officiated at the services. Mr. and Mrs. George L. Tenney of the New First Congregational Church of Chicago, of which Mrs. Wheelock was formerly a member, sang favorite selections. Burial was at Rosehill.

Mrs. Wheelock was the wife of the late Everett B. Wheelock. She is survived by five children, Harold, Earle, Alice, Mabel, and Margaret.
