Obituary - Mrs. Charles H. Empey Passes Away after Very Brief Illness

Kesiah Jane Jones Empey, wife of Charles H., Empey, and daughter of the late Bishop William E. and Mary Jones of Paragoonah, Utah, passed away at an early hour last Friday morning, at her home in Price, of pneumonia and Bright's disease, after an illness of fourteen days. Deceased was in her fiftieth year, having been born at Paragoonah, Utah, July 16, 1855.

Her girlhood days were mostly spent at Paragoonah, about five miles north of Parowan, where she endured many hardships incident to the settling of that place. She was married to Uban Van Stewart, by whom she had three children - Margaret, Edward and Susan K. Her second marriage was to Charles H. Empey, brother of the late Bishop Empey of Salt Lake City, in February, 1881, moving to Price in October, 1882, being one of the first settlers of this place.

Mrs. Empey could tell many interesting stories of the early settlement of Price. She has always been an active worker in the ward, being second and first counselor to the president of the Relief Society ever since its organization, November 1, 1885. She bore six children to Mr. Empey, one of whom preceded her to the great beyond. She was a most faithful wife and better neighbor never lived. She was true to her religion to the end and lived in the hope of a glorious resurrection.

The funeral services were held from Town Hall last Sunday afternoon and was among the largest ever held at Price. The speakers were John H. Pace, Arthur W. Horsley, Henry G. Mathis, Albert Bryner and Bishop Horsley, all of whom testfied to the excellent character and splendid life of the departed. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. The remains were laid away at Price cemetery.
