CORNEVEAUX-- In this city, suddenly, of dropsy of the heart, Sunday morning, June 14, 1891, Mrs. Amy L. the beloved wife of Frank J. Corneveaux, aged 25 years.

The announcement of this sudden death comes like a shock to this community. A year has not yet elapsed since she stood a bride at the marriage altar. The hopes and plans of a happy home are so soon and so terribly blighted.

Mrs. Corneveaux was the daughter of David L. Chandler of Cedar City. She received a good education, being a graduate of the upper Iowa College at Fayette. She was a most acceptable and successful teacher in the county for sever years. She was a young lady of high moral and religious purposes and of a generous heart. In less than two weeks she was planning to become settled in the fine new house nearly finished for their residence. But the Divine purpose was different.

Appropriate funeral services were held at the house by Rev. C. E. Wright, after which the remains were taken to Cedar City for burial. A funeral service was held at the Cedar City school house and the very large number of friends present evinced (sic) the widespread regard in which the deceased was held. To the sorrowing husband and other relatives we extend our sincere sympathy.
