Death Comes To One Sister Who Had Not Seen Another for 42 Years

Death has suddenly overtaken another old-timer who was in attendance at the late conference in this city. The person this time to lay down the burden of life was Mrs. Caroline Dutson of Aurora, Sevier County, Utah. Her demise occurred on Friday last and was caused by a severe cold contracted during conference week.

The funeral has been delayed awaiting the arrival of a son who has lately performed a mission in Malad Stake, Idaho, in the interest of the Y.M.M.I.A. The remains will be taken from this city to Oak City, Millard County, tonight, to be placed along side those of her husband, John W. Dutson, who died some years ago. The body will be accompanied by her son and a sister. The latter arrived here recently from Oklahoma. The sisters had not met for forty-two years and their union was very affecting. That death should come so soon after this protracted period of separation is, indeed sad, and regrettable to all concerned.

The son who will accompany the body south is George L. Dutson, who was notified at Aurora of his mother's death and came to this city last evening. The deceased leaves three other sons, and two daughters, and numerous other relatives and friends. Her sister, Mrs. Sarah Adams has been a resident of St. Louis many years and of Oklahoma only a few months and came to Utah last November, making Aurora her permanent home.

Mrs. Dutson was one of the oldest settlers of Millard County and highly esteemed by the people there. Her father Nathanial Jenkins, was a resident of Lehi, Utah County in the early days of its settlement. Mrs. Dutson was about 65 years of age.

The funeral services will be held tomorrow, Wednesday afternoon at 2 O'clock at the meeting house in Oak City.
