Funeral of Prominent Young Lady of Slaterville Yesterday.
Yesterday, October 25, 1901, was laid to rest in the Ogden City Cemetery, the remains of Mary M. Knight Hutchins, a member of earliest settlers of Weber County.
She was born at Slatterville, Weber County, Utah, February 28th, 1862. Her parents are John Knight and Sarah Taylor Knight. She was extensively known and beloved by all who knew her. She was the mother of ten children, eight girls and two boys. Two girls and one boy having preceded her to the spirit world.
She died October 23, 1901, at her residence. The funeral services were held in the ward meeting house with James Slater presiding. The building was crowded to its utmost capacity, but not one-half the people who desired to attend could get admission to the services.
The ward choir furnished the music. Elder Joseph Hall, of Ogden, who had known deceased, from her early infancy, delivered a discourse, which embrased the life and character of Mrs. Hutchins.
He had known her and her family intimately for very many years, and bore testimony to the purity of her life, her integrity to the truth and to her duties as a daughter, wife and mother.
She was affectionate, kind and truthful in all stages of her life; it may be truthfully said from the cradle to the grave she was honored and loved by the community.
As she lived, so she died, and is glorious. She will sleep in peace until the morning of the first resurrection, when she will burst the barriers of the tomb and join her loved ones in an everlasting reunion.
The speaker said deceased had been one of his pupils in the district school in the erly settlement of the place.
Appropriate remarks were also made by Elders John Hudman, C. A. Lindquist and the bishop.
The cortege which followed the remains to the grave, it is said, consisted of some sixty carriages.
On reaching the cemetery the invocation was given by Elder George Stranger. The grave was didicated by Elder W. Manning and the benediction pronounced by Elder Allred.
