w/o Jacob Bastian

Millard County Progress March 22, 1929


Christine Hanson Bastian, born in Denmark, October 1, 1845 and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Elmer Carling, Monday evening, March 18th.

Mrs. Bastian came to this country with her parents when just a child. She was baptized in the Missouri River in 1851, coming on to Utah with a company of Danish immigrants soon after. She was called with other colonists to go to Washington County and raise cotton, as it was thought that the warm climate there would be favorable for its production. Most of her life was spent there, until about five years ago when her husband died and she came to Fillmore to reside with her daughter. Mrs. Bastian was one of those early pioneers, enduring many hardships and privations for her religion which was very dear to her. Throughout her life, she remained a faithful member and a diligent worker in the Church.

Funeral services were held Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Second Ward Chapel. The speakers were Don C. Wixom, James A. Kelly and Claude Robins. Musical numbers were rendered by the choir and by Mrs. Stella Day and Mrs. Edna L. Day, who sang a duet. The opening prayer was offered by Ernest Carling and the benediction by Grover A. Giles. The family left Friday morning to accompany the body to Washington for burial.

Mrs. Bastian is survived by the following children: Charles and Lewis Bastian of St. George; Serena Farnsworth of San Francisco, Calif., Wilford Bastian of Vernal, Retta Sainsbury of St. Johns, Arizona and Christy Carling of Fillmore, also by two brothers in Denmark.
