Title The Casket with the Window
Description teaching in the Normal School, and mother was so proud that I gould earn a respectable living and enjoy it so much. I did love the children and wanted to teach them all that I could. 1 wanted each of them to continue their education and prosper in our community. And since Snow Academy was completed ten years'now, almost everyone had the opportunity to further their education if possible. On September 24, 1898, my little sister Sena Iona was born. She was a lovely baby and so happy. As I held her in my arms I felt the tingle in ray heart of the mother I hoped to someday be. Having been so busy with the life of my family, I had not yet stolen the heart of a man to build a life with, although I did have ray eye on a certain local boy. Everyone seemed to be getting pneumonia that fall, and in December my darling baby sister contracted it and died on the 29th day of that month. And though we were called to bear this hard trial while father was gone, we drew on the strength of each other. And through this time I realized it was ray mother who really was strong and kept the family together and the work moving along. She supported father through all his activities during her life and especially while he served this mission. Sena Iona was buried in the cemetery that was about one mile north of Ephraim. But little did I know at that time what was to take place years later. Father served an honorable mission and returned hone August 7, 1900. On November 5, 1901, he was elected as a city councilman and appointed chairman of the cemetery committee. He was authorized to purchase ten acres of ground near the city limits for a new cemetery. It was his privilege to draw the plans and have the ground surveyed and laid out. Under his direction, trees and shrubs were planted and roads and walks between the lots were made which in time developed into a beautiful place. 96
