The Progress - Review, Friday, July 26, 1907, page 1:


Miss Evelyn Peterson, one of Fillmore's beautiful and talented young ladies died last Saturday at the Holy Cross Hospital, Salt Lake City. Her remains were brought home and interred in the Fillmore cemetery last Tuesday. The funeral services were held in the Central School House. The speakers were Rufus Day, John Cooper and J. Alex Melville.

In Memorium

She is not dead, your Evelyn.

'Tis but the mortal clay

That slumbers in the silent tomb

So gently laid away.

She is not lost, all things remain

Above or in the deep.

The brightest rays the sun give forth

Fast in the carbon's sleep.

Not dead are they who pass away

Be we who slumber here

Are content that what we cannot see

Belongs to some other sphere.

Not lost the waters of the lake,

In vapors rising high

Though passed from view they'll yet return

To quench the parched and dry.

She is not dead, 'tis only rest

The sweetest songs we keep

Along with music of the choir

Not dead, but locked in sleep.

Not lost, the metal into smoke,

Out from the furnace rolled.

The great alchemist brings it back

The purest solid gold.

There is no death but unto life

In God's almighty phone.

You'll hear the words of Evelyn

And know as you are known.
--J. M. Paxton
