Mary Sarepta2 LEE (Mary1) was born 23Jul 1865 in Harmony, Washington, Utah. Mary died 23Nov 1897 in Virgin, Washington, Utah.
Mary Sarepta went to Salt Lake City, Utah, where she trained at the hospital for a nursing degree, and received further training before leaving the hospital. In the meantime, she had moved her children there where she could be with them when off-duty. Her brother, John, made occasional trips to Salt Lake. On one occasion, he went to visit her and the children. When he returned home he took the children home with him to live with their grandmother in Virgin.
When Mary completed her training, she returned to Virgin to care for the sick and deliver the babies up and down the river from Virgin to Springdale. There was not another doctor for miles around. The strenuous schedule proved too much for her strength and she had to discontinue her practice for two years. When she died at age thirty-two, her funeral was well attended by her family and the friends she had helped. Her children had continued to live with their grandmother.
