Death of Mrs. Ellis Reese

It is with deep regret we have to announce the death of Janna Reese, wife of Ellis Reese, which occurred early on Saturday morning at her home on Walnut street.

A baby boy was born to Mrs. Reese a few weeks ago and although considered on the way to recovery she suffered a relapse and died as above stated.

She is survived by her husband and five children, the eldest of whom is only nine years of age.

Mrs. Reese, who was formerly Hanna Beveridge, belonged to Rock Springs, her parents being old residents of this city, and her many friends grieve at her untimely death.

Mr. Reese is a well known and highly respected citizen and the sympathy of the community goes out to him in his sad bereavement.

The funeral services were held at the L.D.S. church on Wednesday. The members of the fire department acted as pallbearers, and the coffin was followed to the grave by a large number of relatives and sympathizers.

Mrs. Reese Passes Beyond

Mrs. Ellis Reese passed away on Saturday morning at her home at 1 o’clock. She had not been well since the birth of her little son, who was fourteen days old. She was thirty-five years old in December of last year, and had lived in Rock Springs since she was two years old, coming to this country from Scotland with her parents Mr. and Mrs. Alex Beveridge. The funeral services were conducted from the L.D.S. Meeting House on Wednesday afternoon, attended by a wide circle of friends who had known her since infancy. Left to mourn the loss of a devoted and beloved woman, are the husband and five children, the oldest nine years old, and the youngest the infant son; the mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Alex Beveridge; a sister, Mrs. Duncan, of Idaho; one brother. The body was laid to rest at Mountain View cemetery.

Mrs. J. Spriggs, mother of Mr. Reese, and his sister, Mrs. Peter Kearns, both of Park City, Utah, attended the funeral.

The news of the death of Mrs. J. Ellis Reese, which took place at her home on Walnut street early on Saturday morning, came as a shock to her many friends in the city.

The circumstances are peculiarly sad. A few weeks ago Mrs. Reese gave birth to a baby boy and she never fully recovered. She leaves a family of five, the eldest of whom is only nine years of age. The children’s names are Florence, Ellen, Edna, Lois and the baby, Joseph Ellis.

Mrs. Reese, who is 34 years of age, was born in Scotland but came to this country with her parents when quite a child. She was, before her marriage, Hannah Beveridge, her parents being old residents of this city. Her father and mother, two sisters and two brothers still live here. Mrs. Reese was greatly respected by all with whom she came in contact. She was of a quiet, retiring disposition, her whole interest being centered in her husband and children.

The husband and family have the sympathy of the whole community in their great bereavement.

The funeral services took place in the L.D.S. meeting house on Wednesday afternoon and were attended by a large number of relatives and friends.
