DEATH SUMMONS BELOVED WOMAN
Mrs. L.L. Crapo, Early Pioneer, Answers Last Call. – Hundreds of Friends Mourn With Relatives.
Death claimed one of Moab's earliest Pioneers and most highly revered citizens, Monday at one o'clock, when Mrs. Alice Crapo, wife of L.L. Crapo, succumbed to cancer of the stomach after an illness of nearly two years. Mrs. Crapo had been in a critical condition for many months and while the news of her death came as a severe shock and occasioned widespread sorrow, it had been known for some time that she could not recover.
Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon from the ward meeting house, and were very impressive. The church was crowded with many friends of the family.
Mrs. Crapo, formerly Miss Alice Holbrook, was 67 years old at the time of her death. She was born at Liverpool, Nottinghamshire, England Oct. 28, 1850. When only 10 years of age she came to New York, and three years later in 1863, crossed the plain to Utah.
She was married to Leonidas L. Crapo at paradise, Cache County Utah, February 24, 1867, fifty years ago, and their golden wedding anniversary was observed this year. Mr. and Mrs. Crapo came to Moab in 1880 arriving here on September 13. They were among the very earliest settlers in the valley.
The trip to Moab was made with great difficulties. There was no road into the valley at the time and they were compelled to build a road and they came. They forged Grand River.
The Crapo family first lived on what is now the Thos. B. Foy lot were they had a "Dug-out" and forty acres of land, which they later gave to the town site.
Mrs. Crapo was one of the first members of the Moab relief society. She was also the first president of the Young Ladies Mutual Improvement Association, and was the first visiting teacher in the church here. Mrs. Crapo always took a great interest in religious work and was one of the most willing and effective workers in the ward.
Mrs. Crapo is survived by her husband and thirteen children. Who are: Mrs. Mary Stocks, Moab; Lon Crapo, Dove Creek, Colorado; Lorenzo Crapo, Kemmerer, Wyoming; Sadie Snyder, Myton; Mrs. Fannie Talbert, Myton; Mrs. Florence Johnson, Provo; Mrs. Emma Stocks, Dickson, Wyoming; Mrs. Hattie Snyder, Dove Creek; Mrs. Carrie Snyder, Dove Creek; Clarence Ezra Crapo, Dove Creek; George Crapo, Moab; Mrs. Jessie McCabe, Dove Creek; Miss Bertie Crapo, Moab.
Mrs. Crapo was always blessed with a host of friends, and her death is mourned by hundreds. The deep sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved family.
