Mrs. Olevia Sophia Johnson Hatch, 80, life-long resident of Bountiful and Woods Cross, died Tuesday at 2:30 p. m. from the effects of a cerebral hemorrhage suffered last March, at the home of a daughter, Mrs. Orin B.

Always active in affairs of the L D S church and the community, she was a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, and she had held offices of trust and responsibility in various organizations the greater part of her life.

Hatch of Oakland, Cal.; Mrs. Josephine Day of Ogden and Mrs. Bertha Thurgood of Bountiful; 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild and one sister, Mrs. E. H. Brown of Idaho Falls, Idaho.
