Daugher of Thomas Clark & Alice McBride Callister

Millard County Progress


Just as we go to press comes the sad news of the death of Edna Callister Starley, wife of John W. Starley of Delta. This young matron died leaving six small children and her husband to mourn her loss. Death was due to diphtheria, which she contracted about a week ago. Her father, Thomas C. Callister and her sisters, Laura and LaNola Driggs visited with her on the 5th of July and she returned with her sister, Mrs. Driggs to Salt Lake, where she spent several days, coming back to Delta on the 19th and it was two or three days after this when she was taken ill with the disease, which together with a weakened heart, caused her death. She passed away last evening about 6 o'clock and private services are being held at the home in Delta this afternoon, after which the body will be laid to rest in the Delta cemetery.

The family - Mr. Starley, the children, her sister Laura, who was with her during her illness, and Grandma Ann Wade - are of course quarantined so that not even the relatives can go in to console them. Mrs. Starley was born in Fillmore, where she spent the early part of her life. She was married to John Starley, October 4, 1911 and after living here for a year or two, moved to Delta, where she has since made her home. The children are: Afton 14, Ann, Alice Louise, Harold, Veneta and Keneth. She is also survived by her father, the two sisters named and one sister, Ruby, who is now living in San Francisco and her brother T. Clark Callister.

Mr. Starley is the son of John Starley of Fillmore and has two sisters, Mrs. Hattie Day and Mrs. Bertha Stevenson, two brothers, Claud and Tom. Mr. and Mrs. Callister are in Delta today. They were shocked to learn of the death because her condition was thought to be satisfactory right up to the time she passed away. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Day also went to Delta today. Mr. and Mrs. Jean Driggs, Mr. Thomas Callister and Dr. and Mrs. L.A. Stevenson came down from Salt Lake this morning. The sympathy of the entire county is extended to Mr. Starley and the children at this sad hour.
