Lorenzo Snow’s Funeral, 1901

The interior of the Tabernacle during Lorenzo Snow’s funeral. You can read the Deseret News account of the funeral here.





  1. I’ve seen photos of the Tabernacle all decked out before, but never would have imagined such decoration for a funeral. (Even the pillars are wrapped in spirals.) Wow.

    Also, it looks like a large framed portrait of President Snow is front and center, directly in front of the organ case. Impressive.

  2. I think they called this a “white funeral,” David. And I hadn’t noticed the pillars before you pointed them out.
