Married William Moore Bivens (1866-1940)

As we go to press we learn of the very sudden death of Mrs. Will Bivens, which occurred in Portland. We have not the particulars at this time and know nothing of funeral arrangements. (Payette Independent, Thursday, April 8, 1915)

Elizabeth Ada Jackson, was born March 17, 1876 on her father's farm near Emmett, Idaho. She was married November 16, 1892 to William Bivens at the place of her birth where the family then still resided. These young people were the children of old and respected pioneer families of the Payette Valley.
After the ceremony the young couple went to their new home five miles east of Payette where they have since lived.
Four children were born to this union, one daughter, Maurine, and the three sons, Walker, Ashley and Edwood.
Mr. and Mrs. Bivens united with the Baptist church in Payette about three years after their marriage and were faithful and obedient members until about nine years ago. At this time, Mrs. Bivens found herself a confirmed invalid and when all other help had failed she resorted to Christian Science and was healed. Some years later when first church of Christ Scientist in Payette was organized, Mr. Bivens became a charter member. Her ? and friends who sought her services or advice ever found in her a loving helpful friend who had absolute faith in Christ and trusted God for everything.
The desire to express her gratitude for God's love as revealed to her in her healing was manifested in the willingness to assist others to see the light as shown to her in the Christ life.
She was a devoted wife and mother upon whom her husband and children had learned to lean, knowing as they did, that she had a knowledge of God which banished every care.
Mrs. Bivens ended the mortal existence at Portland, Oregon, April 6, 1915. among her last words were these, "I am resting in the truth."
There are left to mourn her departure besides her husband and four children, her sisters, Mrs. Alice Riggs and Mrs. Ella Davis of Emmett, Mrs. Anna Ashley of Payette, three brothers, Mr. William Jackson of Baker, Albert of Weiser, Alex and George of Crystal, and many friends.
The beautifully simple Christian Science funeral service was held at the Satoris residence under the auspices of First Church of Christ Scientist, conducted by the First Reader of the church. Miss Harlene Satoris impressively sang as a solo, "Still, Still with Thee." The reading was from John and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." The service breathed of a hope strong and enduring, with no suggestion of despair. A short service was held at the grave in Riverside cemetery at which Miss Harlene sang two verses of "Nearer, my god, is Thee," while the casket was lowered to its resting place, and all that was mortal of Mrs. Bivens was laid to rest.

Anne M. JACKSON was born in January 1878 in Idaho.
