Sunday's Obituary - George Cannon Piggott

This obituary clipping was among the ephemera that I scanned while I was back home in Idaho last November.  I don't know which newspaper it came from, but it was a Utah paper.

George was my great-uncle.

  1. It was really sad when we learned about the passing of Mr. George Cannon Piggott. May her soul rest in peace. Someone should make a memorial page for her on free memorial pages and preserved her memories while she was still living her on Earth.

  2. Thank you for posting this. Your blog is a wealth of information for me. George Cannon Piggott is my great-grandfather.
