Janet's Obituary

JANET "NETTI" LEVI (YARDLEY)--Died, in this city (Beaver), on January 14, 1888. Nettie Yardley, wife of William Yardley, and daughter of David and Ann Levi. Deceased was born at North Ogden, Weber County, March 19, 1862.

Sister Yardley was well and favorably known for her many good qualities, was an active member of the Y.L.M.L.A. of Beaver City, and for some time was associated with the presidency of that organization.

During her lifetime she had won many warm friends as was attested at the funeral services which were held in the Beaver meeting house on Monday, January 16th. The house was full to its utmost capacity with friends and sympathizers.

Consolatory remarks were offered by Elders James Low, W. J. Cox, Bishop J. Smith, Counselor Wm Robinson and Pres. J. R. Murdock. The body was followed to the cemetery by a vast cortege. It can be truthfully said that she had lived and died a true Saint of God.--Beaver Utonian and Deseret News

I am the resurrection and the Life, Saith the Lord:
He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
and though his body be destroyed, yet shall I see GOD:
whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger.

We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. AMEN
