Lillis Palmer

Contributor: van johnson Created: 2 months ago Updated: 2 months ago

LIAHONA THE ELDERS’ JOURNAL FAITHFUL YOUNG MISSIONARY PASSES AWAY The many friends, who have not already learned of the death of Sister Lillis Palmer, a missionary laboring in the Central States Mission, will be pained to hear of her passing away in Kansas City, Missouri, November 12, 1932 following an operation for appendicitis. Sister Palmer’s home was in Alton, Utah. She arrived in the mission field November 21, 1931, and was assigned to work in Kansas City, Mo., being later appointed recorder of statistics in the Mission office at Independence, Mo. Sister Palmer was one of the most efficient workers we have ever had in this Mission. Her life was like a ray of sunshine to all with whom she came in contact. Sister Palmer was conscious up to within a few hours before she passed away. Realizing that death was near, she called Brother and Sister Bennion to her bedside and gave them a message for her parents. She said, “I have never been better treated in my life that I have been in the Mission home, and it has been a joy to have known you and to have lived with you. I want you to tell mother and father goodbye for me. Tell them that I love them and have always loved them, and that I appreciate the fine training they gave me and the experience I have had in the home they gave me; the opportunity in life that I have enjoyed through their goodness, and that they have not failed in any way to give me the best that any father and mother could give, and my heart is full of praise and thanks to them. Tell my loved ones besides them goodbye, and tell __________ goodbye and that I love him.” Shortly after giving this farewell message the gentle spirit of Sister Lillis Palmer passed away. Funeral services for Sister Palmer were held in the chapel at Independence, Sunday, November 13, at two o’clock p.m. President S. O. Bennion and Elder E. L. Marler were the speakers, and they told of the splendid spirit and faithful labors of the deceased. The musical selections, all of which were favorite hymns of Sister Palmer, were very impressively rendered. The Primary association of the Independence branch, in which Sister Palmer had been a willing worker, was present in a body and laid the beautiful floral wreath upon the casket. Impressive funeral services were also held in Sister Palmer’s home ward in Alton, Utah, Wednesday, at 11 a.m. The ward chapel was filled to capacity, more than four hundred people being present. The services were conducted by Bishop Quinby Roundy. Speakers were President Heber M. Meeks of the Kanab Stake, Bishop Preal George (brother-in-law) of the Kanosh ward, Bishop Roundy and President S.O. Bennion of the Central States mission. Prayers were by President W. J. Henderson, of the Panguitch stake, and Elder Myron E. Roundy. The grave in the Alton cemetery was dedicated by Elder Arthur K. Hafen of the Dixie college faculty of St. George. Music was by the ward choir, a chorus from the Robertson family, a quartet from the Fredonia ward, and a solo by Marian Judd. Miss Ellen Hoyt of the Orderville ward read an original poem.

Lillis marriage to John Victor Rogers

Contributor: van johnson Created: 2 months ago Updated: 2 months ago

This is taken from John Rogers life story written by himself. Sister Artemisia George, the wife of my cousin, Preal George, had been encouraging me to write to her sister, Lillis who was serving a mission in the New England States. I did this. Before it was time for her to be released she became seriously ill with a case of pneumonia, from which she died. Before she died she had a confidential talk with her mission president and expressed her desire to be sealed to John Victor Rogers with whom she had been corresponding and had become intimately acquainted. After the necessary correspondence had taken place and I agreed to the arrangement, I went to the Salt Lake Temple with Preal and Artemisia and was sealed to Lillis Palmer, 22 November 1936, right after I had received my endowments. Artemisia acted as proxy for her deceased sister, and Preal was witness to the event.
