The Progress Review, Millard County, Utah, Friday, April 7, 1911, p. 1:


Funeral Services over the remains of Mr. Joseph Payne, who had died in the L.D.S. Hospital at Salt Lake City Thursday last week, were held in the Fillmore Chapel Sunday afternoon. The large auditorium was filled to overflowing by friends and neighbors by whom the departed pioneer was held in high esteem, and known as a most desirable citizen. He was a man of excellent habits, fine moral character, honest and honorable in his deals and conversation with his fellows, peaceable, patient and agreeable, a model husband and father, and one of the best of neighbors. He was a man who united sound sense with strong will power. He was no weakling as shown by the fact that while he had been a user of tobacco till some years ago, when he concluded that it was a bad habit, and said to himself, I will not be a slave to any band and unclean habit, and he quit it, just quietly let it alone. Altho Mr. Payne was a member of no church, his pure and honorable life placed him far above many a professed christian.

The funeral services were conducted by Bishop P. L. Brunson. The opening prayer was offered by James A. Kelly, and benediction was pronounced by Christian Anderson. The speakers were Francis M. Lyman, F. A. Robison, J. V. Robison, T. C. Callister and Bishop Brunson.

Beautiful music and singing was rendered by the ward choir.

The speakers all testified to the splendid upright character of the deceased.

Mr. Joseph Payne was born of Mormon parents in Nauvoo, Sept. 7, 1840. His father died when he was 5 years old, his mother when he was 7 years old. He came to Utah in the year 1851, and was one of the pioneers of Fillmore, where he married Harriet McBride in the year 1860, who preceded him a short time ago to the spirit world. He leaves three children, 12 grand children and four great grand children. The children are Mrs. Josephine Greenwood, Mrs. Maud Hanson and William P. Payne.
