She leaves her husband with seven children the youngest of which is two weeks old, and a host of friends and relative who mourn her departure. She was a faithful Saint and a loving mother.( Cassie came to Bunkerville in January of 1877 when it was first settled.)

July 11, 1914: The county commissioner meeting held July 6th found Chairman C. C. Ronnow presiding and Commissioners Geo. A. Faylle and John M Bunker in their usual places. After the routine business of reading, the minutes of the previous meeting and receiving the reports of the officers, the usual grist of monthly bills was passed. A request was made by the trustees of the Bunkerville school district that the county transfer $5000 from the county general funds to the Bunkerville School district funds for the purpose of carrying on high school work in that district.
