"Audrey and I went on the train to Utah. Elijah Larkin, my niece Rosella's husband, an undertaker on 24th Street in Ogden, met the train and took care of mother's body. We stayed in Charlotte's apartment above the mortuary. Bertha was living there with Charlotte, as Arthur had died May 30th, 1920. Charlotte was a Domestic science teacher at Weber College. Inez Stallings boarded with them.
