Miss Wingard who was but twenty-two years of age was born and reared in Delphi, and graduated from the Delphi High School in the class of 1921. She was at time of her death cashier in the New York store in Delphi. She was a devoted member of the Baptist church being treasurer of her Sunday school class, treasurer of the Rebecca Lodge, and treasurer of the American Legion Auxiliary.
