Just as we started printing last Friday word came that Mrs Christine Eggleston had passed away. She had been quite sick for nine weeks and during the last three weeks she had at times shown signs of being very near deaths door. The ward has lost a faithful worker, and the Relief Society a faithful secretary.
Sister Eggleston, was born in Salt Lake city Nov 7th 1864 and the next year her parents moved to Eden in the Ogden Valley where she remained until she came to Star Valley in the Fall of 1886. In the meantimne she was married to Orson H. Eggleston in February of the year 1881.
She was the first secretary of the Relief Society in Afton, and has held that office since that time until her death, with the exception of two short intervals. In addition she has held the office of Treasurer at times.
She is the mother of five children, the first one died when about 18 months old and the other are here, the youngest being a boy four years old.
She has lived a worthy life and died as she has lived a faithful Latter-day saint, and in her death is deeply mourned.
The funeral was held at the Afton Meeting house at 2 p.m. Monday and a large crowd assembled to pay their last respects to the departed. Appropriate hymn: "Sister thou was mild and lovely" and "Shall we meet" were sung and then Patriarch C. D. Cazier spoke for sometime in words of love and kindness and read a very appropriate verse from the hymn-book.
Sister Mary Gardner, one of the Stake officers of the Relief society, spoke at length on the character of Sister Eggleston, and praised her for her good works, bearing testimony to her mild temper, her faithful performance of duty and her punctuality.
Mark Hurd and Mary Yeaman sang together, "It is welll with my soul".
Elder N.J. Christopherson, Pres, Burton and Pres, geo. Osmond each spoke for a few moments, of the high character of the departed, and uttered words of love and sympathy to the mourners, and exhorted those present to live that they might be worthy of the Celestial glory.
Bishop osborne Low told how Joseph Eggleston, son the the deceased. had heard of the sickness of his mother on Thursday, while in Jackson Hole, and as the people there were very busy (rest of obit not there)
