Title Lida Edmunds Wunderli
Description The deceased was born in Wales, Utah, on June 27, 1889, and early in life gave unmistakable evidences of unusual musical talents. She received her musical education in Boston, where she resided for upwards often years, studying under Carl Stasny, George Proctor and Charles Anthony. Later she was associated with Harold Henry and Clen Dillard Gunn of Chicago. She also resided for sometime in New York City. Because of her pronounced musical talents she was privileged to associate in the most exclusive circles, both in her home state and eastern cities. Her experience as a teacher of pianoforte was outstanding She also taught in the Brigham Young Academy at Provo, Utah, as well as in many of the high schools of her native state and the LDS School of Music. The late Prof John J. McClellan often spoke of her superior musical ability, as also did Prof. A.C. Lund. Her father John Edmunds, is a native of Merthyr Tydvil, coming to Utah with his parents, the late Nathaniel and Jane Edmunds in 1856. The mother, Julia Edmunds, is a native of Nephi, Utah, and the daughter of William and Eliza Lamb. A coincidence in the death of Mrs. Wunderli lies in the fact that a sister, Kate Edmunds, who gave great promise as a violinist, died a number of years ago in her twenty-second year. In addition to her husband, her baby girl and parents, the deceased is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Nathaniel L., William J. and Jennie Edmunds Rees, all residents of Wales, Utah. Much sympathy is felt for the family, especially the husband and parents, and the prayers of all are that He who doeth all things well in His own way may add His comoforting blessings. Personal recollections of the author, a nephew, point to three occasions in my childhood: Aunt Lida came to our home in 66
