Services Held for Pearl D. Steed
Funeral services were held Monday, Nov 25 at 1 p.m. in the Afton Second-Third ward Chapel with Bp. Elmo H. Newswander of the Second Ward conducting for Perl Delora Lehmberg Steed, 79, who die Nov 21, 1968 at the hospital in Afton after a lengthy illness. Burial was in the Afton City Cemetery under the direction of Schwab Mortuary.
She was the first child born to Harmon and Annie Camper Lehmberg, on July 7, 1889. at Fairview, Wyo. She was the first girl child born at that place. Their home was located southwest of the Joe Linford ranch. Her parents and grandparents were some of the first pioneers to come to Star Valley.
Being the oldest child she was very good to help her father with his work. She helped haul milk with a team and wagon to the creamery northwest of Afton.
She was active in many church organizations before and after her marriage. She had a beautiful singing voice, and was always willing to sing when called upon.
She was married to Franklin Burton Steed Jan 21, 1910 by Every Barrus. They lived at Auburn where all 11 of their children were born. They homesteaded about 320 acres southwest of Auburn, living near the foothills long enough to prove up on the ground, enduring many hardships. They moved to Afton in 1933, where they bought a home which they enjoyed very much.
Pearl was always cheerful and ready to help anyone in need. Her family all loved her and liked to visit her. She was a wonderful mother and homemaker, and her family will always remember her as such.
Pearl and Bert celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1960 with their children.
Her loss is shared by her husband and the following sons and daughters; Mrs Lenora Harrison, Logan, Utah; Stanley, Auburn, Wyo.; Mrs Clarence (Myrtle) Miller, Mrs Rollo (June) Nield, Devere and Junior of Afton; Mrs Art (Virginia) Moore, Mrs Bob (Louise) Moore, San Bernardino, Calif.; Mrs Lynn (Lita) Hunsaker, Smoot, Wyo.; Jack of Salt Lake City, Utah; and Jim of Hooper, Utah. Also surviving are 46 grandchildren, and 55 great grandchildren; three sisters, Mrs Susie Reeves, Ogden, Utah; Mrs Irven (Myrtle) Jensen, Grover, Wyo.; Mrs Byron (Lila) Marshall and one brother Jodie Lehmberg of Logan, Utah.
