My name is Mary Ann Whitehead Overson and this blog is dedicated to all the amazing men and women who came before me: my ancestors. I also want to acknowledge my father, Armand Toyn Whitehead, who is the person responsible for a lot of the content in this blog; my dad has spent countless hours collecting and preserving photos and histories, and preserving them on the computer so that they can be handed down for generations. Thank you, Dad!

(No photo accompanying obituary)
            NEPHI – Funeral Services for Mrs. Hanna Simister Bale, 75, who died in her home Monday, will be conducted Thursday at 2 p.m. in Nephi South Ward chapel by Bishop P. B. Cowan.  Burial will be in Nephi Cemetery.
            Friends may call at the family home Thursday from 10 a.m. until time of services.
            Mrs. Bale was born in Coalville, April 8, 1870, daughter of  John W. and Elizabeth Brierly Simister.  She was married to Israel C. Bale in the Logan Temple, June 29, 1887.  He died in 1930.
            Surviving are six daughters and two sons: Louisa Jensen, Provo; Mrs. May Pitt,  Mrs. Amy Worwood, Nephi; Mrs. Pitt Tooele;  Mrs. Belle Montague, Payson; Mrs. Millie Peterson, Goshen; Mrs. Ruth Wilcox, Las Vegas, Nevada; Mrs. Amy Worwood, Nephi [sic]; Bernard Bale, Genola; and Frank Bale, Springville; two sisters, Mrs. Frank Beckwith, Delta; and Mrs. C. L. Swenson, Salt Lake; 39 grandchildren and 35 great grandchildren.
[*This obituary mentions Mrs. May Pitt of Nephi, and then Mrs. Pitt of Tooele – these apparently are the same person, Elizabeth May Pitt, and therefore is a typo.  It also references Mrs. Amy Worwood twice, which is a typo.  Incidentally, (Emma) Louisa Jensen also married a Pitt – her first Husband, Leonard Nicholi, who died very young, whose older brother, John W. Pitt married Louisa’s sister, the Mrs. May Pitt referenced in this obituary.  Louisa then married Charles C. Jensen.]
