Obituary; The Deseret News Newspaper 22 Dec 1894
Sister Jane Ann Bown, wife of Wm. Bown, departed this life at 2:20 p.m. December 11, 1894, at Fayette, Sanpete county, Utah. The cause of her death was congestion of the lungs, being sick but nine days.
Sister Bown was the daughter of John E. and Mary Metcalf, born March 15, 1834, at Hull, Yorkshire, England. She was baptized July 9, 1850, was married in January 1855, emigrated to Utah the same year, lived in Salt Lake City a short time, then moved to Springville, Utah county, where they lived until 1861, when they were called to go to Dixie, and settled in St. George. Brother Bown was released from that mission on account of his health; came to Fayette in 1865, where they have resided up to the time of her demise.
Sister Bown has been president of the Relief Society from its first organization, over twenty years ago. She has also acted as president of the Primary Association since October 1891. She has ever been faithful in these assocations, and not only has been been active in her official duties, but in ministoring to the sick and needy in our midst. She was the mother of ten children, and had also twenty-two grandchildren. She was a faithful Latter-day Saint, and was much beloved by all who knew her. She leaves a husband, six children and a large circle of friends to mourn her loss.
The funeral was held on the 13th at 12 noon
