The sad news of the death of Mrs. Bristor reached Douglas Monday. It was not known here that she had been ill, and the news came as a surprise to her many friends. Death was the result of pneumonia. She was ill but a week.
Alice Rebecca Doyle was born June 12, 1895, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George N. Doyle, prominent pioneers of Douglas. She attended the Douglas schools and graduated from the local high school. Her classmates then nicknamed her "Sunshine."
She continued her education at Wyoming University at Laramie and then the university of Wisconsin. During the first World War she was in service work in Washington, D.C., returning to Douglas following the Armistice.
On March 15, 1922, she was united in marriage to Rev. Wallis Bristor, at that time minister of the Douglas Congregational church. In the early 1930's the family moved to Seattle, Wash., and this had been their home since that time. Mr. and Mrs. Bristor and their children, Delos and Hugh and Nellie Jane, had annually com back to Douglas during the summer to spend their vacation.
Besides her husband and children Mrs. Bristor is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Mary Russell of Cheyenne, and Mrs. Paul LeBar of Douglas and a number of nieces and nephews of Cheyenne and Douglas.
The remains were shipped from Seattle and arrived Wednesday evening by Burlington train. Rev. Bristor and children arrived on the same train.
