Birth and Burial: (Online) Mendon Cemetery Index
Note: The cemetery index gives her father's name as George Spooner and her mother as Sarah, but this is not correct as her father on LDS records is given as George Lees.
LDS Ward Records of Mendon, Utah
Note: on LDS ward records her father is listed as George Spooner. Perhaps when asked, she just gave her father's name as George (which it was) and the clerk assumed the surname.  At one time she was listed as 'cut off' (excommunicated) at her own request - hence the obituary mentioning she died in full fellowship.  She was re-baptized in Utah in the SLC 17th ward.
