About Mary Ann Stevens

The Passing of Mrs. M. A. Stevens

Croydon, Feb. 14, 1924

The Park Record, Park City, Utah

Dear Sirs:---Knowing you are most interested in the people who lived in and loved Park City, I am taking the liberty of writing and informing you of the passing of one of the loved and respected women, who made Park City her home for many years. Mrs. M. A. Stevens, or Grandma Stevens, as she was affectionately called, died February 9th. She loved Park City and its people dearly, and I know there are many who will remember and mourn her as we do.

The Record was a comfort to her since she came to make her home here and she looked for it eagerly every week. She was house-keeper for Mr. J. W. Pearson, of the Ontario company, for over thirty years, and after his death, came to Morgan to make her home with her daughter, Mrs. Jane Foote, with whom she resided until her death. In relationship, she was a mother-in-law to me, but she was everything a mother could be, and proved herself tried and true.

Grandma Stevens was born in New Jersey eighty-four years ago last Christmas day. She came to Utah when a small child, residing in Petersen, (which was named after her father,) for several years. She married when fifteen years of age, Roswell Stevens, who died forty-four years ago, leaving ten children. She went through the many hardships endured by the early pioneers of Utah, and her parents were among the first who resided in Peterson.

The following are the surviving children: Mrs. Martha Heiner, of Morgan, Charles R. Stevens of Ogden, Mrs. Ida McDonough, of Boulder, Colo., Mrs. Mamie Powell, of Coalville, R. H. Stevens of Coalville, Mrs. James Foote, of Morgan, Mrs. Affalana Heiner, Heyburn, Idaho, Mrs. Lillie Rock, Colton, California and George F. Steven, of Croydon. One sister survives, Mrs. Sarah Tribe, of Ogden.

Grandma leaves a large posterity: nine children, about 66 grandchildren and 150 great-grandchildren, six great, great grandchildren.

Her funeral was held in the South Morgan Stake House, Feb. 12th, and was largely attended. The speakers paying a high tribute to her character, and also her father, who was bishop of Peterson. There were several beautiful musical selections and many flowers, manifesting the love and esteem in which deceased was held.

Relatives and friends from different places were in attendance, and among those who came to pay their last respects were Mrs. Mamie Chartrand and son, Pearson, of Salt Lake.
