Widow of Late Anson Call, Died Unexpectedly in Bountiful, Wednesday Funeral Held Sunday.
Mrs. Emma Call wife of the late Anson Call died very unexpectedly at the home of her daughter Mrs. Truman H. Barlow in Bountiful, Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock. She had not felt quite as well as usual since Monday, but no one realized that the end was so near.
The end came without a struggle, and had her son David not been peculiarly impressed to go and see his mother, it is likely that she would have passed away without any one having seen her go, as her daughter had just taken her some food and had gone into another room to finish her own dinner when David observed that she was dieing.
Deceased was born in Worcestershire, England and was 84 years old, the 5th of last month.
She was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1843, in her native land. The late N. T. Porter and C. R. Jones were laboring there as missionaries at that time. She left England May 4, 1856 and arrived in Utah Nov. 9th of the same year having crossed the plains in Jas. G, Willie's hand cart company. After her arrival in the valley, she immediately came to Bountiful which has been her home ever since.
She was married to the late Anson Call Feb 27, 1857 and is survived by the following children: Mrs. Ann Sessions of Chesterfield, Idaho; Mrs. Fanny Barlow, David Call, Mrs. Sarah C. Barlow of Bountiful and Mrs. Lucina Perkins of Centerville. She has 43 grand and 11 great grand children.
Funeral services will be held in the East Bountiful Tabernacle, Sunday, at 2 o'clock p. m.
