Lovely Character Passes Woman Who Played Important Part in Early Days of Wood River
One of the well known Wood River pioneers, Mrs. Biva Skyles, wife of J.W. Skyles, died last week in Boise, where she and her husband have lived for the last three years. Mrs. Skyles was born in Kentucky in 1848, and with her husband came to Idaho about 30 years ago, settling in the Wood River country. They lived at Bellevue for many years and later moved to Camas Prarie.
Mrs. Sklyes was one of those sweet, unselfish characters which the pioneer life specially developed: thoughtful of others and ready at all times, at whatever cost, to minister to those in sorrow or need.
She is survived by her husband and five married daughters, 14 grandchildren and three great grandchildren, Mrs. L. Coleman of Butte, formerly of Boise, Mrs. Peter Banwell of Idaho City, Mrs. Ada McLeod of Goldfield, Nev., Mrs. R.W. Hansel of Blaine, and Mrs. Josie Davis of Los Angelas, Calif.
