although she cherished all the
early associations and kept the
memory of those times always
fresh, she was distinctly modern
and accepted each new order of
things gracefully and readily.
Was Early Pioneer
"Her experience bridged the
period from the -covered wagon
and log school house to the pres
ent with all that modern improve
ment means. Her hospitality was
boundless. She had the rare gift
of making and keeping many
warm friends and possessed the
art of the perfect hostess, in that
her guest were always made to
feel at their ease and her home
was the center of a wide circle of
friends who enjoyed this-charming
and natural hospitality.
"Hers a truly democratic
nature. She would welcome the
hired man into the family circle
or meet the governor without em
barrassment, on equal grounds.
But it was in her religious work
that her influence waa widest.
Active in Church Work

church at Zena was her spiritual
home. She has attended and wor

she taught them before cnurcn

Born in this family of pioneers,
she grew up in the atmosphere of

pioneer spirit until the last. But
"For many years her class of

give suitable rewards for high
records of attendance and schol
