Obituary of Mary Ann Morton Pye in the Deseret News, Tuesday, October 30, 1906, page 5.

Very impressive funeral services were held in the Fourteenth ward assembly hall yesterday over the mortal remains of Mary Ann Morton Pye, wife of Caleb E. Pye of Center ward, Salt Lake City.

Bishop Barton, who presided, briefly eulogized the deceased for her known faithfulness while a member of the Center ward, after which appropriate and consoling remarks were made by Elders N. Y. Schofield, J. G. M. Barnes, George Shorten, Nephi Morris and Elder George Teasdale, all of whom were well acquainted with Mrs. Pye while on missions in London.

Deceased was born May 3, 1854, at Marylebone, London, England, and died at her home in this city Oct. 28, 1906, in her fifty-second year. She was baptized by Elder Charles W. Rheese, Dec. 19, 1882, and remained a member of the North London branch until July, 1896, when, with her husband and family, she emigrated to Utah.

Although the friendly hand and pleasant smile of Sister Pye will be seen no more in this life, she will yet live many years in the memory and in the hearts of those missionaries who labored in the London conference between the years named. Naturally kind, sympathetic, and gentle in disposition, these virtues were intensified by her love for the gospel which love never wavered to the last despite her long and intense sufferings.

She was not only a devoted wife and mother, but an esteemed friend to scores who gathered around her bier to pay their tribute of respect, many of whom had known her in Utah, and also across the ocean.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Pye leaves five children, four girls and one boy, to mourn her demise.

Amid a profusion of flowers, the body was tenderly laid to rest in the City cemetery.
