MRS ED. BLACKER CALLED BEYOND
PASSED PEACEFULLY AWAY LAST SATURDAY AFTER LONG ILLNESS

The many friends of Mrs Edward Blacker will be grieved to hear of her death which occurred last Saturday at her ranch home in Afton, practically all of her children were at her bedside when the end came. Mrs Blacker has been ill for a long time and while we are all grieved to hear of her passing we are comforted by the thought that she is now past all suffering and laid at rest.
Funeral services for Sister Althera Blacker were held Monday, January 28 at 1 P.M. in the Afton North Ward Chapel. The services were presided over by the Afton North Ward Bishopric. The speakers were Bishop Osborne Low, Bishop Charles Peterson of Smoot, President Arthur F. Burton and her oldest son George Blacker. The choir rendered some favorite hymns sympathetically. Sister Lois Wilde and Edith Hurd whom Sister Blacker always enjoyed hearing sang "I Come to Thee".
Bishop Low the first speaker told of Sister Blacker's remarkable devotion to her family, especially when they had sickness in the home and how she seemed untiring in willingness and bodily strength to aid those who were in trouble. Bishop Peterson spoke of her as he knew her with her family in Almy Wyo. thirty-nine years ago. How she was always on hand there in case of trouble. Brother Burton spoke of her desire to live and work in the Temple and also how when he was called to administer to her he felt inspired rather to bless her than to promise her life. Although it was very hard for George Blacker to control himself yet he conquered and paid a loving tribute to his devoted mother.
Mrs Blacker was born in Wales on January 3, 1852. She is the mother of eleven children eight of whom are living; they are George blacker of Cumberland Wyoming; Sarah Ann Neabit of Acoqula Idaho; Thomas Blacker of Rupert, Idaho; Maria Gardner of Afton, Wyoming William Blacker of Hayburn Idaho; Merintha of Salt Lake City, Fannie Cazier of Afton Wyo, and Kemuel Blacker of Salt Lake City. All of her children were present except on who was ill. She has sixty grandchildren and is survived by her youngest brother Kemuel Loveday who was present at the funeral service.
