FUNERAL OF MRS. REYNOLDS HELD

Funeral services for Mrs. Hannah Reynolds, one of Mount Pleasant's early pioneers, were held Sunday at one o'clock in the North Ward chapel. Bishop H.C. Jacobs presiding. The chapel was filled with people who came to do honor to this good woman. Many beautiful flowers covered the casket.

The ward choir rendered several sacred hymns during the services. Elder Joseph Seely, Elder John Carter and Pres. C.N. Lund spoke in the highest terms of the character and life of the good woman.

Amasa Aldrich was requested to read a poem written by one of Mrs. Reynold's daughters as she was coming here to attend the funeral. It is as follows:

We are coming home dear mother,
Not as we used to do,
To greet with loving smile and kiss,
But to bid good-bye to you.

To bid good-bye to the dear old home,
Where first we saw the light.
Where we dwelt with the dear ones
We loved with all our might.

When town was in the old fort wall,
Our home stood out alone;
Although the town's grown far and wide,
Ours is still the dear old home.

The ill stands in the same old place,
The stream has changed its bed.
And in place of making flour,
Now it makes drink instead.

There are many older old land marks,
That we remember still,
But none are held in memory,
So well as the dear old mill.

In coming to our home again,
It fills our hearts with pain.
Well knowing that our mother dear,
Will never speak to us again.

In coming home, we have no home,
There's many such another,
This makes the saying still more true,
'What is home with out a mother.
Written by Rosetta Farnsworth
