Mrs. Irene C. Corbett of Provo Thought to Have Lost Life in Shipwreck.

Special to the Tribune

PROVO, April 16-- In all probability the only passenger from Utah on the ill-fated Titanic, which went down yesterday on the Newfoundland banks, was Mrs. Irene Colvin Corbett of this city. Mrs. Corbett has been in London the past winter studying medicine. In a letter to her mother, Mrs. Levi A. Colvin, received yesterday, she stated that she would take passage for home on the Titanic, expecting to arrive here in two weeks.
Mrs. Corbett is the daughter of Bishop and Mrs. Levi A. Colvin, of Pleasant View ward which joins Provo on the north. Her three little children are with their grandparents in Provo, the family having moved from Pleasant View to 900 East Center street, Provo, only a few days ago.
When seen by a representative of The Tribune today Mrs. Colvin, Mrs. Corbett's mother, said that all she knew of the affair was what was contained in the letter received from her daughter Monday. The family has received no news as to whether Mrs. Corbett is among those saved.
