Statue of Jerusha Barden Smith

The famous sculptor, Dee Jay Bawden has been commissioned to sculpt a likeness of Jerusha Barden Smith to be placed alongside the bust of Hyrum that is already in the home were she and Hyrum lived in Kirtland. It is anticipated that an appropriate tribute to her will be inscribed and placed with the statue.

If you are a descendant of Jerusha and Hyrum Smith, you will undoubtedly want to make a donation toward this memorial for her. A donation of $10, $25, $50 or whatever you want to make will certainly help pay for the sculpture bust. A purchase of one of the smaller busts will be counted toward the donation to the fund for the large bust.
