Urinda Child Hoopes Barkdull, daughter of the late O.R, Child Sr. and Sarah Urinda Child was born October 5, 1882 at Plain City, Utah. The family was among the early settlers of Star Valley coming here when Urinda was about six years of age. She spent her youth in Fairview where she was loved and admired by all who knew her.
On February 4, 1904 she was united in marriage to Frank Hoopes, oldest son of F.M. Hoopes, who died rec3ently. To this union were born eight children, seven of whom are living. One son, Farrel died while very young.
On October 13, 1918 her husband was taken by influenza, one of the first in Star Valley to die with disease. She courageously undertook the rearing of this large family alone.
In the winter of 1920 she was married to John Barkdull of Fairview and to this union were born three children, all of whom are living at the present time. The family moved to Springville, Utah in 1922 and later to American Fork, Utah, where they were living at the time of her death.
For about five years Urinda has been a constant sufferer, suffering from an incurable disease. Death came as a blessed relief to her. Through all her trouble and suffering she has manifested great courage, being at all time cheerful and smiling. All who knew her loved her and spoke of her wonderful character. She has always been an ardent church worker. Just prior to her death she was busy sewing for the Relief Society in the ward in which she lived. She has done Temple work the last few years whenever her health would permit.
Those who are left to mourn her loss are her husband, John Barkdull and three children, Lorene, Larue and Edward Barkdull of American Fork, Utah; LaThair Hoopes of South Fork California, Mrs Cleo Branson of Cokeville, Wyo.
