HARVEST OF GRIM REAPER
Mrs. W.A. Bennett Taken From Family and Friends at Untimely Age --- Strange Succession of Fatalities
Mrs. Ettie Bennett, wife of W.A. Bennett, a prominent citizen of Layton, died last Tuesday at 10 p.m., of female ailments, after an illness of a few weeks. Her death is a great shock to her husband and family, who are inconsolable. She was a lady of commanding presence, loving disposition, and many good qualities and her untimely death will be universally mourned.
The deceased was a daughter of N.P. Beebe of Layton, her mother having died some years ago.
She had resided in Arizona for twenty years, the greater portion of the time in Layton. She was married to W.A. Bennett seventeen years ago, and about eight years ago the couple went to San Jose, Arizona, where they have lived most of the time since. She was taken ill some weeks ago and came to Safford for medical treatment.
For a time it was hoped she would speedily recover, but she was very ill by turns until the date named, when death gained the upper hand, and she was removed to another sphere.
The funeral was held at the Layton church yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Bishop J. R. Walker presiding. Many relatives and friends gathered to pay their last respects to the deceased, who was a kind hearted and universally esteemed lady. The utmost sympathy and kindness was expressed for and extended toward the bereaved family.
A strange fatality seems to latterly have pursued Mr. Bennett. His father died two years ago while he was absent on a mission and his mother died less than a year ago. The death of his wife at this time therefore seems doubly severe.
Mrs. Bennett was born in Provo, Utah, thirty-six years ago. She leaves a husband, a daughter aged sixteen, and a son aged eleven.
