"Grandmother Hanks was an ideal old lady, whom it was the greatest of pleasure to visit. She was like an exquisite cameo with her silver gray hair and keen black eyes and which sparkled when she was animated. She always dressed in perfect good taste. Her keen insight into human nature made her loved by all. She sent you away from her presence with an impulse to do better things, and with a feeling that life was beautiful and worthwhile. She died in Salt Lake City, 31 May 1917, at the age of 91. Knowing that she had fulfilled a worthy and noble mission here on earth we also know that her welcome on the other shore will be everlasting and eternal."

Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel, Jedediah M. Grant - Joseph B. Noble Company (1847)
