Additional Notes

She was one of the first two single women to serve full-time missions. She had planned to travel to England in 1898 to sight-see and to visit her brother Ray, who was serving a mission there, with her friend Lucy Jane Brimhall. Their bishop recommended that the two young women be called to serve as missionaries.
