"Final Tribute Paid to Beloved Mother"

Beautiful and impressive were the services held on Tuesday, February 15 for Mrs. Elsie Gale Shipp, beloved wife of Ernest A. Ship, who passed away at the Milford hopsital on the 11th, leaving a highly respected family to mourn her untimely demise.

Bishop Wesley Farred was in charge. The chapel was filled with friends and relatives who mourn the passing of the deceased. The beatiful casket was banked with a profusion of flowers which bore silent evidence of the love and esteem of a host of friends.

Former Bishop George Palce was the first speaker. He said he had been an intimate neighbor for many years and new of the many beautiful traits of character of Mrs. Shipp, and told of her true devotion to her family and her religion.

She was described as a quiet, unassuming woman, truly devoted to her family. She ruled by love and kindness, and in her noble life were many things we might well emulate. Former Bishop George Parkinson told of the pure life of Mrs. Ship as a young girl, having observed how carefully she had tried to protect herself from sin.

He spoke consoling words to the bereaved family and exhorted the daughters to follow in the footsteps of their mother.

Elsie Gale Shipp was born in Beaver on December 7, 1882. She was the daughter of Henry and Hannah Gale. On June 19, 1901, she was married to Ernest A. Shipp in the Manti temple. Except for temporary absences at Kimberly and Newhouse, her entire life had been spent here. Always devoted to service to her religion, Mrs. Shipp had served as secretary to the Primary association, assistant secretary in the Relief Society, secretary in the Sunday school, and a Sunday school teacher.

Well and nobly has she fulfilled her mission to earth, becoming the mother of twelve children to whose comfort and requirements she gave unstintingly of her service and love. Surviving besides the husband, a sister and one brother, are the following children: Ozrow, Bardella, Cinda, Nola, Otto, Warren, Elsie, Jeneva, Franke, Calvin, Kenneth Wendall (deceased), and Zoe, the new-born infant.
