  • Notes 
    • From "A Family Called Wild", 1989: "Nell was blind, mentally and physically handicapped and could get around with assistance only. Pictures suggest she was a Down's Syndrome. Her mother, Freida, always prayed that Nell would die before she did, so that she could always be there to take care of her. Nell died on July 26, 1921, just eight months before her mother." Funeral took place from the residence of Miss Katie Wild, 34 Gloucester Terrace, Goderich on Thursday July 28th at 9 o'clock a.m. to St. Peter's Church, Goderich thence to St Peter's Cemetery, for interment, near St Joseph, Ontario with her parents Joseph Wild and Freda Bickle.
