PAXMAN--At Washington, Utah, Feb. 2nd 1882, of pneumonia, Elizabeth Ann, wife of David Paxman, and daughter of William and Bathsheba Blunden.

Born at Little Waldingfield, Suffolk, England, Oct. 4, 1824; baptized in the Boxsford Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in February, 1850, by Elder Ebenezer Gillis; emigrated to Utah with her husband in 1870; moved to Dixie in 1873, and located at Washington, Washington Co., where she remained until her death, after a very severe and painful illness of two weeks.

In life she was an affectionate wife, a loving mother, a true friend and faithful Latter-day Saint. The esteem in which she was held by those who knew her, was manifested by the large attendance of sympathizing friends who attended her funeral.

The funeral sermon was preached by apostle Erastus Snow. While in England as a poor widow, with five helpless children to care for and sustain, her house was always open to the Elders of Israel, and her faith in God and His work was firm and unshaken to the last.
