Angeline Shurtliff's headstone

Angeline Shurtliff, wife of Chauncey Walker West. She was buried in the Ogden City Cemetery, but not at the West family plot where other family were buried. We do not know who had this monument placed on her burial site, especially because both of her children, daughters of herself and Chauncey died in infancy. Perhaps she remarried after Chauncey's death and had other children by a second marriage who had this monument placed for her. The information on her monument reads:

Angeline Shurtliff
Wife of C. West
Feb. 8, 1843
Jan. 25, 1910

The information from the cemetery plat sheets on FHL microfilm 1672572 includes the following details:
Angelina West
Father: Elisah Shurtliff; Mother: Cynthia Noble; Husband: C. West
Born: Massa, Feb 8, 1843; Died: Roy, Utah Jan 25, 1910; Buried: Jan 27, 1910, Ogden City Cemetery. [Massa was an abbreviation for Massachusetts. Her death certificate is available online at FamilySearch Record Search and also the Utah State Archives website.]
