Pioneer of Ashley Valley and Willow Creek Succumbs at Vernal After Lingering Illness. Was Missionary Among Indian Tribe in Early Days

Impressive funeral services were held at the Vernal First Ward chapel Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. for Jeremiah Hatch, 81, who died Monday morning at Vernal after being brought here from his home in Willow Creek to be near medical aid. The services were under the direction of the ward bishopric with Fuller Remington conducting. Music was furnished by a double mixed quartet with Mrs. Elva Davis accompanying.

The opening selection by the quartet was "Abide With Me," opening prayer was by George Massey, :I Need Thee Every Hour" was sung by the quartet.

Van Massey was the first speaker and told of the pioneering life of the deceased, going to the Willow Creek country in the early days and living under trying circumstances. He spoke of the hospitality of the family. He referred to the mission of Mr. Hatch among the American Indians.

G. H. Southam referred to Mr. Hatch as a lover of the Indians and as a person who understood their problems. He said he had met Mr. Hatch just after he returned from his mission among the Indians. A quartet selection was rendered "Oh My Father," with solo by Miss Alice Caldwell.

George E. Wilkins was the concluding speaker, dwelt largely on record keeping and read a sketch on the deceased from a genealogical chart. The concluding selection was "Farewell All Earthly Honors." Benediction was by E. S. Gurr.

The pallbearers were Frank, Jed, Charles, LaVern, Jack and Alton Hatch. The body was taken to Willow Creek for burial.
