Harriet Eliza McBride Pugh Payne Biography

In Memoriam

Mrs. Harriet McBride Payne was born in the State of New York 75 years ago, and died at Fillmore Saturday morning, Nov. 5, at 6:30.

Just with the awakening life of a new day, she went to sleep like a tired child. With the eye of faith one could see at the dawn of this memorable November day an invisible hand wave a signal, and a voice in the softest accent on the morning breeze, announcing that the gates were open and that angels were waiting to escort her in.

After a long busy and useful life she died as she had lived honored, trusted and loved.

She leaves a husband, a son and two daughters, a brother and three sisters and many other near relatives and friends to her departure.

Funeral services over her remains were held in Chapel Sunday afternoon, presided over by Bishop’s Counselor James A. Kelly.

The speakers were George Crane of Kanosh and Thomas C. Callister of Salt Lake. Beautiful and appropriate singing was rendered by the ward choir and Miss Woodhouse. Invocation was offered by Christian Anderson and benediction by William Beeston.

A long cortege followed the remains to the cemetery where the dedicatory prayer was offered by F. A. Robison.

“Smooth the locks of silver hair,
On our mother’s brow with tenderest care,
Gather the rope in final fold around the form so still and cold,
Lay on her bosom, pure as snow,
The fairest, sweetest flowers that grow,
Kiss her and leave her our hearts delight,
Her pain is over she sleeps tonight.”
