Title Loved By All
Description "Well, you were too young to understand or appreciate what sacrifice and true devotion meant. Stories are sorta like the puddles you see in the garden after the rain. They reflect truths that are not seen before." "Look, Mama, the newspaper clipping pasted on this age old page, let me read it to you. 'Manti, Oct. 30. The people of Manti were called upon to perform the last rites over the remains of SISTER ETHEL LOWRY REID, who was laboring as a faithful Missionary in far off Samoa. Together, she and her husband, Clair, labored in love and diligence, each mini-stering to the comfort and blessing of the other and their labors in the Mission. The funeral services were very im-pressive. Apostle George Teasdale represented the authorities of the Church and Elders Wood and Stringham, of Salt Lake City and Elder Clyton of Prove represented the Samoan Mission. All these brethern spoke of cheer and comfort to the bereaved and eulogized the departed. Each of the Elders praised the noble work of Brother and Sister Reid. They told of her for- bearance under sore trials during the late Samoan War. Presi- dent Canute Peterson, John B. Maiben and J.H. Woodskow spoke of Ethel's beauty, beautiful within, as well as beautiful to behold. The singing, under the leadership of Professor A. C. Smyth, was exceptionally sweet and touching, the floral pieces profuse and lovely. Friends came from all parts of the state. As the coffin was being lowered into the grave, a puff of wind sent a shower of leaves over the hallowed spot, which lent a poetic charm to the sad occasion. Sister Ethel Lowry is gone from us, but her memory, her noble life will live long with the young and the old of her native town, Manti. For she was 'LOVED BY ALL.'" Ethel Mae closed the old scrap book, her eyes filled with tears. "Mama," she whispered, "I would like to so live to be loved by all." Mama only nodded her head, but in her thoughts she re-membered... Only the Earth and the Mountains live long. It is not how long we live but what we accomplish with what we had.' Reference" Material from Aunt Marion Tennant's Seraphook dated July 24, 1873 to 1912. Newspaper clippings from the Salt Lake Desert News and Manti Measanger. 46
