[Apostle Rudger Clawson Diary] Salt Lake City. Clear and mild; ideal day. Our little Marion when dressed and placed in the casket for burial looked lifelike and beautiful, not as one dead, but one that sleepeth.

2 p.m. Funeral service at our home, Bp. O. F. Whitney presiding. Pres. Lorenzo Snow and Bp. O. F. Whitney made consoling remarks. The floral offerings from relatives and friends were chaste and beautiful. My brothers, Bradley, Stanley, Sidney, and Fred, acted as pallbearers. Some eight carriages followed to the grave, which was dedicated by Bp. Whitney. Marion was a great favorite in our home and will be sadly missed by all. (3)
