Bishop George H. Wallace Presides at Service in Twenty-first Ward
Funeral services for Mrs. E. R. Lundquist of 579 Fifth avenue, were held Sunday in the Twenty-first ward chapel, with Bishop George H. Wallace presiding.

Aside from the immediate relatives of the decedent many friends gathered at the service of tribute to her memory. The speakers were Elder Kinkie, former Bishop Woolley and Bishop Wallace, each of whom expressed the warmth of admiration for the womanly and motherly traits of the deceased woman, as well as for her devotion to the Church. The choir rendered the following hymns: “Prayer,” “Though deep’ning trials throng your way,” and “Shall we meet beyond the river.” Elder Don Priestly sang “Face to Face.”

The decedent was born at Lehi, Utah, and after her marriage moved about 20 years ago to Salt Lake. She is survived by her husband, five sons and two daughters as follows: Clarence, age 19 years; Ivan, 17 years; Karl, 12 years; Roy, 10 years; and George, 3 years; Rubie, 14 years; and Elsie, 8 years.

Among the surviving relatives in attendance at the funeral services were the decedent’s father, Jacob Bushman, her brothers, Jacob and Theodore, and her sisters Amanda, Sarah, Ida and Ella; also Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Lundquist of Smithfield, Utah.
