  • Notes 
    • ALICE JOSEPHINE LASBURY, 97, who with her husband and two sons, moved from Alton to Wood River about the turn of the century when "there wasnt' anything here except watermellon patches and stickers (sandburrs)", died at 4:55 p.m. Monday at Madison County Nursting Home in Edwardsville.

      During a celebration of her 90th birthday, the nonagenarian recalled, "There wasn't even a grocery store in Wood River-just our house and a little bitty saloon where the men could get their beer."

      It was about 18 months before there were any more people in Wood River, she said.

      Born in Alton, a daughter of the late James and Mary (Beide) McFetridge, she married Edwin W. Lasbury in 1904 in St. Louis. He died February, 1939.

      Mrs. Lasbury moved from Wood River in 1963 to become the second resident at the Olin Home in East Alton.

      Surviving are two sons, Lester of Wood River and William K. of Wheeling, W. Va.; three daughters, Alice Dvorchak of Wood River, Ada Goodman of East Alton, and Mildred Evans of Wilmington, Del.; 17 grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren.

      Visitation will be after 4 p.m. Wednesday at Marks Mortuary, where prayer service will be read at 7:30 p.m.

      A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Thursday at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Bethalto with the Rev. William Kekeisen as celebrant, and burial will be in Valley View Cemetery at Edwardsville.

      In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by two daughters, Dorothy Considine and Beatrice Huber and two sons, Charles and Thomas Lasbury.

      Madison County Nursing Home has been named as a memorial.
