OBITUARY (Deseret News, Dec. 20, 1867)

Died, in this city, in child bed, at noon yesterday, Lucy C. Spencer Grant, wife of Elder George W. Grant, now south at St. Thomas on a mission.

Sister Lucy C. Spencer was the daughter of Orson and Catherine C. Spencer. She was born October 9th, 1842, in Nauvoo, Illinois, and was at her death 25 years, 2 months and 20 days old. Br. Spencer's touching account of the circumstances under which he left Nauvoo, and the death of his beloved wife, published in his Letter, has made all the Saints familiar with his family. Every reader of those Letters has felt a great interest in his children.

At the death of her mother, Lucy was very young; her oldest sister, Ellen, (Mrs. H. B. Clawson,) though but a girl, acted the part of a mother to her. From Winter Quarters Br. Orson Spencer was sent, in 1846, on a mission to England, and he presided over the British Mission until the year 1849, when he was released and came to this valley. His children, Lucy C., among the number, came to the valley under the care of Br. James Bullock in the year 1848.

The deceased was married to Elder Geo. W. Grant about twelve months ago. The news of her sudden death will be a heavy shock to her husband, and her brother Geo., who also started for the Muddy a few weeks ago. Her death has cast a gloom over a wide circle of relatives and friends. Even now it can scarcely be realized that she has been snatched away so suddenly and unexpectedly by death. Everyone who knew her might well anticipiate for her a prolonged life of happiness and usefulness. On Saturday evening she went out riding with her sister, Mrs. Clawson, and felt well all Saturday evening and night. Her child was born at 9 a.m. on Sunday, and still survives; but at noon she was a corpse.

Her funeral will take place at 2 p.m. to day, from the 13th Ward Assembly Rooms, whre the friends of the family are invited to attend.
