Mrs. William Deveraux Called By Death
Mrs. William Deveraux, 69 years of age, died at the home of her son, Ira Deveraux, here Wednesday morning following a long illness of heart trouble. Her death came as a shock to the family, as she died while she slept and members of her family were careful not to awaken her. When her daughter-in-law went to take some medicine to her she found she had been dead for some time.
Sylvia Tiffany Deveraux was born in Salem, Utah, in November 1867 and her early days were spent there and in Provo. She had made her home in Pleasant Grove since then with the exception of eight years spent in Driggs, Idaho.
She has been a loving wife and mother, living quietly with her family.
Surviving are her husband and nine sons and daughters as follows: Roy and Ira Deveraux of Pleasant Grove, Earl Deveraux, Rigby, Idaho; Mrs. Ella Andrews, Idaho Falls, Idaho; Mrs. Fern Thomas, Driggs, Idaho; Arthur Deveraux of Lehi; Mrs. Ivy Mace, Salt Lake City; Albert Deveraux of Emmett, Idaho, and Ernest Deveraux, Idaho Falls, Idaho; also 40 grandchildren and the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. Eliza Tanner of Payson, Zeanos Tiffany of Salem, George Tiffany of Melba, Idaho; and Albert Tiffany of LeGrande, Oregon. Within the past few years she has buried two grown children.
Funeral services were held in the Third Ward chapel Sunday at 1o’clock p.m. with Bishop Frank D. Atwood presiding and Counselor Wilford Neves conducting.
The opening song was “Sometime We’ll Understand” by Estella Hardman and Viola Beers then sang “Let the Lower Lights Be Burning”.
Splendid talks were given by Bishop Davis of the Salem Ward and Frank B. Newman, a neighbor. Eugene Lee and Dean Deveraux then sang “Whispering Hope”.
Bishop Atwood gave closing remarks and Moral D. Steele of American Fork sang “That’s What God Made Mothers For.” The closing prayer was offered by M. S. Christiansen of the stake presidency. The grave in the Pleasant Grove city cemetery was dedicated by Bishop Davis.
The large crowd in attendance and the beautiful floral offerings bespoke the respect held for the family.
