MRS. A.V. CALL PASSES BEYOND
WAS DEVOTED MOTHER OF A LARGE FAMILY OF RATHER YOUNG CHILDREN
Mrs A.V. Call was taken suddenly ill on Monday February 6the early in the evening. The first indication that there was anything wrong with her was when Mr Call came in from doing his chores. He entered the house and saw his wife sitting on a chair and noticed immediately that something was wrong with chair. When he asked her what the trouble was she was unable to give him any information and seemed to be in a sort of a stupor. She did not recover entirely all during the rest of the night and seemed to more or less delirious. Mr Call being greatly alarmed regarding her condition called the doctor in in the morning. the doctor advised him what to do but pronounced her case very serious. She had almost recovered from the first stoke and seemed to be on the way to recovery when she suffered a second stroke, and before she got over this one a babe was born to her. She seemed better after this for a day or two and then it became apparent that the end was near. Mr Call was at her side all the time and scarcely slept or had any rest for nearly a week. On Monday, one week from the day on which she was taken ill she passed peacefully away at 8:45 p.m. The doctor pronounced the disease nephritic toxemia.
The babe is getting along all right at present Mrs Call rallied sufficiently to tell them what she wanted to name ti before she died.
Mrs. Call leaves a large family of children seven of whom are living, one having died about two months ago. It is thought that her grief for the loss of this little girl may have been partly responsible for bringing on her final sickness and death.
Besides her husband Mr A.V. Call, and her mother Mrs. Edmund Hepworth of Grover, seven children survive her: Lucy M, Ivan, Raoul, Marius A., Cecil E., Rosso and the young babe Reva Charlotte.
Margaret Ann Hepworth was the daughter of Edmund and Lydia Hepworth, who have resided in Grover for many years. she was born in Bountiful, Davis County, Utah, June 11, 1885. Her parents came to Star Valley two years later and took up a ranch in Grover, where Margaret spent most of her childhood days.
In 1903 she married A.V. Call and moved to Afton where she took the responsibility of raising the family of nine children belonging to Lucy late wife of A.V. Call. so well did she succeed in this undertaking that there was never any friction between these children and her own, and at the time of her death two of these children were still residing with her in her home the rest being married and owning their own homes.
The funeral services were held in the South Ward Chapel last Wednesday. A large attendance of friends and relatives were present.
The speakers at the funeral were Thos. Walton, Thos H. Wilde, Bishop E.M. Thurman of Grover and Bishop C.J. Call.
All had been intimately acquainted with Mis. Call and spoke in the highest terms of her good qualities. The remarks of Bishop C.J. Call were especially impressive.
Beautiful music was rendered by the choir under the leadership of chorister Thos. Hood. Mrs Thos. Hood and Edward Olsen also rendered a beautiful duet during the service.
