Birth: Mar. 22, 1817
Lancashire, England
Death: Jun. 22, 1889

Her parents were Robert Huntington and Jeannette Holden and she was married to John Eastham. Two of their children's names: the youngest girls were Merlin and Lenora.

My dear Friends: I see by a brief notice in the Deseret News of last evening that our beloved and cherished mother in Israel, Jane Eastham, died on the 22nd . I feel that I cannot suffer myself to be silent on receiving this sad news. Although, perhaps, silence on my part would best become the sorrow I feel for the earthly loss we have all sustained by the departure of one as good and true, and faithful, in all respects, as Mother Eastham. Her unwavering kindness to me and all my fellow-travelers in a distant land, her generous hospitality to the servants of God, her motherly care and genuine solicitude and sympathy for the youthful Elders, who ever found a Mother¡¦s welcome under her blessed roof; together with all her many noble virtues, as a woman and a saint, have endeared her, most affectionately and sincerely, to everyone who knew her. From the depths of my soul I can utter the words of the ƒ±News¡¨ ƒ±God bless Mother Eastham!¡¨, and I bless her memory as beyond all price. She was, and is, worthily of all confidence and affection. She was always an ideal of perfect womanhood in my mind--true, pure, gentle and prudent--a faithful and consistent Saint of God. What greater honor could anyone desire than that? All her virtues were God-given, and, therefore, her own. Nothing we could say would add to or diminish aught from her sterling worth. She was God¡¦s own daughter, and he loved her far more than we know now. And , while we mourn her absence from us, no more to return to mortality, the great Father of us all, and myriads of Kindred Saints behind the veil are welcoming her gracious spirit back to them. Her toil, her sorrows, her pains and sufferings, are past. And now, in the paradise of the good and pure, she happily awaits the resurrection of her precious body from the dust, to dwell in glory, immortality and eternal life. While I drop with you the tear of sympathy and sorrow, I rejoice with you in the knowledge of the Truth, and thank God that we shall meet again, if we are faithful, with our beloved ones who have gone before us to God, from whence they came. Cheer up, my friends, we do not mourn as do those who have not this blessed hope. I know that Mother Eastham has ƒ±fought the good fight, and Kept the Faith, and that, henceforth, there is laid up for her a crown of everlasting life . God bless her noble examples, to the good of her children, and children¡¦s children, to the latest generation. Brother Eastham, you have my sympathy and my friendship. I beseech of you to continue, forever, true and faithful to your covenants, with God and your companion. Give my love to all the children . Peace be unto them. I know what it is to lose a mother, and they also have my heartfelt sympathy. I sincerely hope it may be as well with all of us, as with our mother. God bless and comfort you all, is the earnest payer of your brother. Joseph F. Smith -------------------------
