Cassa (Carrie) Ann Walker, daughter of Henson Wakler Jr. and Mary Green, was born in Pleasant Grove, Utah, Aug 22,1866, and died there Feb.16, 1928.

On Dec. 10, 1885 she married George Daniel West. To this union were born seven sons and three daughters, all of whom grew to maturity except one son, Milton. They were sealed to each other and received their endowments in the Logan Temple, Feb. 16, 1928.

Cassie and her sister, Emma had beautiful vocies and sang in most of the funerals and other public affairs. Her voice was a contralto. She was a beautiful housekeeper. She was a good wife and mother, and was active in the Church. She was devoted to her husband, George. He was a good father to his family and a good provider; I repected and loved him.

When relatives came to visit, the boys would play games to see who was the strongest and fastest; for example, the jumped the high jump--boxed and raced. Her boys were good athletics.

She had heavy black hair and black eyes. She was left-handed and a beautiful writer. She was a hard worker. She took her little children with her to pick berries. She would put the tiny ones on a blanket under the apple trees while she picked. Their yards were neat and clean.

She was a very industrious person; she canned 500 quarts of fruit a summer, and I'll never forget her good pickles; they were delicious. When I would go to her home, they was always fresh baked bread. She always set a nice table and made you feel welcome.

As her daughter-in-law, I loved her dearly. I made some dresses and did other sewing for her. She told me that she loved me as her own.

She told of going to her father's. She and her sister Emma would stay over night with their father, Henson Walker Jr., after mutual in cold weather. She often spoke of how much she loved him and her mother.

After their evening meal she and her husband and family would sing and play the old family organ. They popped corn and spent many happy evenings together.

She died in her early 60's. Her sons were the pall bearers at her funeral. She requested that her brother, Ezra Walker, speak at her funeral, which he did. She was buried beside her husband, George Daniel West, in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery.
