Wife Of Patriarch Horne Dies In Arms Of Her Venerable Husband
Great sorrow was inflicted upon the family of Patriarch Jos. S. Horne Tuesday night when his wife, Maria B., widely known all over the county as "Grandmother Horne," succumbed to intestinal troubles after having been ill for more than two months, since July 22. A useful life was ended by the dark angel and not only the family, but innumerable poor people and sick people will deeply mourn the loss of one of their best friends and helpers.
Maria B. Horne was over 82 years of age, born March 14, 1840, in Brandywine Township, Pennsylvania, the daughter of John Baum and his wife, Maria Crismon. Her family having embraced the gospel, she came with her parents to Utah in 1850, taking up residence in Provo, where Maria became the wife of Warren S. Snow in November, 1856. A son and a daughter were the fruit of the happy union. She experienced the sorrow of losing her first husband, and in December, 1879, she married Jos. S. Horne, with whom she came to Richfield. Two children were born, a daughter, who died when two years of age, and a son, who died several years ago, leaving eight children to whom Mrs. Horne since then was a faithful grandmother and mother. The son of the first marriage, John C. Snow, is the only surviving child but 25 grandchildren and 50 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren will mourn the loss, together with the surviving husband, Patriarch Horne.
Funeral services will be held in the Second ward chapel Friday at 2 o'clock p.m.

MARIA B. HORNE
Large Crowd And Wealth Of Flowers In Tribute For Deceased Pioneer
The Second ward chapel was crowded by mourning attendants when funeral services were held Friday afternoon over the remains of Maria B. Horne, who died Wednesday of last week of intestinal troubles at the age of 82 years. Banks of flowers were visible signs of the great respect our people had for the sterling woman. The services were an inspiration to live as clean and useful a life as deceased did and were most comforting to the survivors. Especially so was the masterful eulogy spoken by a life-long friend, Mrs. Henrietta Wright who splendidly outlined a biography of the departed. Other speakers were Geo. M. Cope, W. W. Morrison and Bishop W. A. Seegmiller. The music was under direction of Mrs. Anna Callaway and consisted of choral and quartet numbers fitting the occasion impressively. Lewis Jenson offered the invocation and Bishop Seegmiller spoke the benediction. A large number of people formed the cortege to the city cemetery.
