    • She married so young, at the age of sixteen, to a man John Thomas Larson, sixteen years older than herself, Henrietta had to assume the duties of keeping a home. She learned to cook, sew and do all the household duties familiar to early settlers of St. George.
      In her younger years she helped keep the St. George Temple clean. This was volunteer work done by the women of the Church. She also did Temple work. There is a record which shows the names of sixty one people whose work she did. The name Smith occurs 34 times in this record, other names are, Richards, Melcher, Dudley, Bushnell, Ber, Kellogg, Fsk and Bristol. There is a list of 28 names done in the later years in the Salt Lake Temple making a total of 98 names. She probably did not record all the names of people for whom she did work.
      She had been a life long member of the Relief Society and enjoyed the meetings up until her present sickness. During all her lifetime she has been a member of choirs. She still sings at the age of more than 84 years, many Church hymns, both verses and chorues. She can remember many other songs. During the evening this information was taken, she sang, "Wen the Dew Is On the Roses", "Long, Long Trail", "Red Wing", "Kelly", "Spanish Cavalier", and "Poor Orphan Girl." She can amuse herself for hours singing. Some of her songs reflect the pioneer life of which she was a art. It may be noted here that in her present sickness, though critically ill ad knows little that is going on around her, she tried to sing and that the following words could be heard distinctly. "Savior stay this night with me, behold tis eventide."
      She had always been very prayerful and faithful to the Lord.
      She moved to Marion, Summit Co., sometime in 1916. Her husband died 17 July 1917 and is buried in Provo, Utah. She lived in Marion with her daughter, Ethel until 1924 when she moved to Park Cityto be with her sons John Henry and Newel. She was a Primary Teacher in Park City. Her eldest son John Henry had returned from a mission to the Northern States. He was paymaster at the Consolidated Mine at this time. He and the rest of the children provided for her.
      In 1933 she moved to Salt Lake City and lived most of the time in the Eight Ward.
      During her lifetime Henrietta did not travel much, in fact se had not been out of St. George until 1916. She made one trip back to St. George, one trip to Colorado, and the trip to Rapid City, South Dakota. She has been very happy with Mr. Williams.
      Christmas Eve 1953 she was struck by a car and suffered a broken leg. She was not able to walk for a year and there on one of her first trips out of the house early in 1955, she stepped off a step, breaking the same leg again (the right one) and was beginning to walk again when her present illness overcame her.
