Mrs. Gilda Hatch Bates, age 27 years, wife of Edward F. Bates of Milo, died Saturday morning at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Hatch of Rigby. Death was due to leakage of the heart and dropsy. Mrs. Bates gave birth to a son two months ago and since that time her health has not been good, although many of her friends were unaware that she was afflicted with heart trouble. For the past two weeks, she had been under the care of four physicians and every possible aid was given to her. The death of this young matron is very sad, in-as-much as she leaves three children.
Gilda Hatch Bates was one of the most likable and highly respected girls of our community. She attended Rigby High School for some time and readily made friends. She was an obedient and thoughtful daughter and a very devoted wife and mother.
Gilda Hatch was born in Hatch, Idaho, January 11, 1899. She was united in marriage April 17th 1918 at Rigby to Edward Fredrick Bates. Following their marriage, they moved to Milo where they have made their home. Mrs. Bates was very active in the affairs of Milo and was especially prominent in singing. Her time and talent were generously given at all times.
Mrs. Bates was the seventh child in a family of ten. Mr. and Mrs. Hatch, her parents have been married for 44 years and this was the first death in their immediate family. Surviving Mrs. Bates are two daughters; Gilda Jane, aged 7 years, Dona aged 5 years and a baby boy [Edward Bruce Bates], 2 months old, her husband, parents and the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. E.F. Thatcher of Los Angeles, Anson Hatch of Provo, Ammon C. Hatch of Hatch, Paxman Hatch of Pocatello, Marinus Hatch of Burley, Mrs. Frank Hunter of Rigby, Ransom H. Hatch of Provo, Joseph and Zirie Hatch who live at the parental home.
Impressive services were held Tuesday afternoon from the Second Ward church. Bishop Cook, of Milo Ward conducting the services. More than 300 people were in attendance at the service. The opening song, "In That Beautiful Land", was rendered by a quartette, Thos. Wilson of Milo offering the invocation. "Sometime We'll Understand" was rendered by a quartette composed of Mrs. Earl Barrows, Mrs. J. L. Brown, Thos. Doman and J.L. Brown. Words of comfort, tributes to the exemplary life of Mrs. Bates were spoken by Parley Davis of Milo; Dr. Ray H. Fisher, Josiah Call and Bishop Cook. Earl Brown, of Milo, sang "Our Yesterdays" and the closing number by the quartette was "I'll Go Where You Want Me To Go". Bishop C. E. Moore pronounced the benediction. The six Hatch brothers acted as pall bearers and ten girls carried arm loads of beautiful floral offerings. Burial was made in the Rigby cemetery.
