CEDAR CITY--Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Bryner Wood, 77, pioneer church worker and 
wife of George H. Wood, one of the oldest native residents of Cedar City,

    Mrs. Wood was mother of Bishop Franklin B. Wood of the Cedar City First 
L.D.S. ward, former city councilman and active civic leader here.  She was 
born in Ogden on May 30, 1860, a daughter of Ulrich and Marie Bryner, who 
came to Dixie when the area was first settled.  When she was 1 year old the

large family.  For more than 50 years she had been a visiting teacher in the 
ward Relief society.  She was a charter member and active organizer of the
