      MRS ELEANOR WILLSON

      The death occurred to-day, after a brief illness, of Mrs. Eleanor Wilson, relict of the late Mr. A. J. J. Willson, a lady of 46 years residence in Poverty Bay. The deceased had reached the age of 81 years, and had a host of friends, who will join with her relatives in mourning the loss of a typical representative of the pioneer generation.

      The deceased was born in Tasmania, where her maiden name, Meyers, is well known. She came to New Zealand as a young woman, and in Nelson in 1871 she married Mr. Willson. They lived on the West Coast for many years before coming to Gisborne, where they took up farming and achieved a gratifying degree of success at a time when prices and export facilities were not what they are today. Their family numbered eight, comprising Messrs. W. G. Willson (Westport), A. J. Willson (Gisborne), and H. E. Willson (Waikohu) and Mesdames Thos. Preston (Manutuke), Chas. Matthews (Mangapapa), F. W. Peddle (Motu), J. C. Campbell (Ngatapa) and John Harris (Hangaroa). There are 38 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

      Mr Willson predeceased Mrs. Willson by eight years, after a long life of great activity.

      The interment of the deceased, which is to take place to-morrow at Makaraka cemetery, will be private.
