"Together Again" Edna Hall Bassett, (97), passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, Wednesday, August 6, 2008 at Logan Regional Hospital.
She was born March 11, 1911 in Wellsville, Utah, a daughter of LeRoy W. and Barbara Allan Hall. She was the fourth child born into a family of nine brothers and sisters. With the exception of the last three years, Edna spent her entire life in Wellsville, and during her younger years, worked along side her father, and her brothers and sisters on the family farm, where she was taught and learned the importance of hard work and appreciation for what you have. She attended the Floradell Elementary School in Wellsville, and South Cache High School in Hyrum.
On October 11, 1929, she married her childhood sweetheart, Edward Wellington Bassett. Ed passed away February 25, 1978. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple. She was devoted to her family and loved spending time with them. Her home was always neat and a comfortable place to be. A home where family and friends were always welcomed.
Her love of flowers was evident in the beauty of her well-kept yard. She found much enjoyment in the accomplishments of her many handiworks; rug making, quilting, crocheting and especially her cut-work embroidery. She was working on a pair of embroidered pillowcases the day before she was taken to the hospital. These will become heirlooms for her family and her many journals will be a legacy for her posterity.
She worked at the bakery at Albertson's, where she retired after 11 ½ years, enjoying the many friendships she made and the good times they had. She also enjoyed working part-time at Shaffer House Bakery until well into her 70's.
She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, having served in various positions in the Primary, Relief Society, choir and involvement with the extraction program of the church. She was a member of the Peter Maughan Camp of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.
Her journey has been a worthy one, full of fun and delightful stops, with some rough places in the road, but always marked by her conscious effort and sincere striving to do her best under all circumstances. She endured well!

Norman (Cleta) Bassett, Smithfield, UT, Carol Sue (Gary) Stauffer, Providence, UT, daughter-in -law, Dian Olsen, Centerville, UT, two sisters, Norma Demetras, Lodi, CA; Shirley (Florin) Rose, Preston, ID; sister-in laws Monta Hall, Wellsville, UT, Helen Hall, Bellvue, Washington, brother-in laws, Dee (Betty) Bassett, Wellsville, Ut, Calvin, (Lorraine) Bassett, Hyrum, Ut.
