Bill & Lois Wed

Bill and Lois Wilson were married in Swedenborgian Church (Church of the New Jerusalem) in Brooklyn, New York on January 24, 1918, just before Bill was shipped, “over there,” to serve in the First World War as a young officer.

When the couple was reunited upon Bill’s return, they settled in New York City where the marriage was tested through personal tragedies and Bill’s struggle with alcoholism.

Bill passed away on January 24, 1971 – their 53rd wedding anniversary.
