      SARAH HOLYOAK DEAD
      Aged And Respected Resident Of Parowan Passes Away At Ripe Old Age.
      This morning the spirit of one of Parowan's aged and highly respected ladies took its flight from this sphere of action to dwell with those of the faithful.
      Mrs. Sarah Holyoak, who had reached the advanced age of 91 years was one of the first settlers of this city, and passed through all the hardships of early settlement. She was always a staunch Latter-Day Saint, and lived a life of usefulness compatible with the principles of the Gospel.
      Next week we will endeavor to publish a history of her life from the time she arrived in Parowan up to the time of her death, which will tell of her activities as one of the pioneers of this valley.
