The funeral service over the remains of Mrs. Orlando Merrill was held in the Tabernacle Thursday at 2 p.m. The large building was crowded with the friends and relatives of the deceased, who came flower laden to show their last tribute of respect and love for the departed sister. Ranged immediately around the casket were the husband and children, parents, brothers and sisters and near relatives. The casket was piled high with beautiful wreaths and bouquets of sweet scented flowers, silent tokens of love and esteem.
Bishop Jas. M. Home presided over the meeting and President C.R. Hokes, Elders Louis Hobson, Thomas Jones and Jas. M. Home occupied the time, each bearing witness of the excellent character of the deceased, and admonishing those left behind to live worthily to enter her presence and resume the relationship that has existed here in this life. At the close of the services the congregation filed past the casket and took a farewell look at the remains. The cortege to the Mesa cemetery was a long one, there being over 40 carriages.
Mrs. Merrill was loved and respected by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. She leaves a husband and two children, aged two and six, to mourn her loss, besides her parents, brothers and sisters and a host of near and dear friends, for she, though modest, was a universal favorite.
