Mrs. Sarah Cummings Passes to the Great Beyond After a Long and Severe Illness

Though not wholly unexpected to her many friends in this vicinity, there were none who did not feel shocked upon learning Monday that Mrs. Sarah Cummings had breathed her last at about 10 o'clock a.m.

For over eighteen months that most highly esteemed lady has been confined to her bed, gradually each day growing weaker until there was scarcely anything left but skin and bones of that once robust and healthy being.

Her devoted husband, Mr. Isaac Cummings the well-known cattleman, has spared no expense in the employment of medical aid in hopes of assisting his wife to regain her health, but all was to no avail, the disease seeming to baffle the remedies of the most learned physicians. Death was due to inanition or exhaustion, not through lack of food but through lack of power to digest and assimilate certain necessary food materials, this being caused by organic and functional stomach and liver troubles.

The deceased was born in Ohio fifty-five years ago and came to Utah in 1850. She first resided in Utah County but in April ten years later she came to this valley with her husband where they have since resided.

She was the mother of twelve children all of whom survive her but one, Mrs. Margaret Clyde, who died a little over a year ago. During her life in Heber she has been a devoted and active member in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and at the time of her death she was an officer in the Relief Society and Y.L.M.I. associations of this Stake.

The funeral services were held in the Stake House Wednesday afternoon, which was filled with friends and relatives mourning the departure of the deceased.

As a tribute of the esteem held for her the district schools were dismissed for the afternoon and business houses closed their doors during the funeral services.
