A beautiful tribute to a dear friend taken from the Wellington Daily News of March 1 is here given:
"Death came last night to close the earthly pilgrimage of Helen M. Bristol at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. J. A. Viols, 317 East Eighth street. Mrs. Bristol was 85 years old and had been living here with Mrs. Gelino for a number of years. Mrs. J. D. Decker of Wilmette, Mrs. J. F. Smith of Dallas and Mrs. William Gelino are her daughters. The latter is in Florida and could not reach here for the funeral. The other two children were with her when she died. Bishop Frank Bristol of the Methodist church is a nephew of the deceased. Funeral services were held this afternoon, conducted by Rev. D. H. Stewart of the Presbyterian church, of which she had long been a member.
Mrs. Bristol was one of those beautiful characters in motherhood whom it is our delight to know and to honor. The memory of her sterling worth and the beauty of her spirit through all the years of a long life form a heritage which will be always cherished by her children and admired by her friends."
