About Cyrus Winget

CYRUS WINGET LAID TO FINAL REST

After long and intense suffering, death claimed a worthy Monroe citizen, Cyrus Winget, Sunday, March 4th at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nels Sorenson, with whom he has lived the past few years.

Born in Salt Lake City in 1850, he went with his parents to Iron County among the first settlers to go to southern Utah, after reaching manhood he settled in Sevier County in 1868 and as was truly said he was one of the founders of Sevier Valley. His many friends found in him a desire to be honest, straightforward and charitable. He married Adelia Squires of Manti to which there was born eleven children, four sons and two daughters are living, Ellis, Elmer, Melvin and Orrin Winget, all of Monroe; Mrs. Laura Sorenson of Monroe and Mrs. Olive Sorenson of Myton.

Four sisters and one brother also survive, Alphonso Winget of Monroe, Mrs. Melvina DeMill of Manti; Mrs. Fidlia DeMill of Manti; Mrs. Mary Ann Clyde of Springville and Mrs. Elizabeth Yergensen of Monroe.

The last sad rites were held Tuesday in the North Ward meetinghouse, Bishop Walter Lundgren officiating. The music was furnished by the choir and among the numbers were: "Sweet Rest," "I Need Thee Every Hour" and "Look, Look to the Comforter." Heber Swindle, Joseph A. Smith and Bishop Lundgren all eulogized the life of the deceaseed.

Many flowers spoke comfort and cheer to the bereaved family. Zeraldo Nielson uttered the opening prayer and Nephi Nordgren pronounced the benediction. A large number of cars followed the remains to their last resting place.
