The birth of Isaac’s and Hattie’s third daughter Maudie was registered in Fillmore, the county seat of Millard County, on the 1st of December 1873. Maudie was also buried in the cemetery there. She died on the 12th of February 1885 age 13 years, 3 months and 12 days.

Other side of Maudie Gandy's Gravestone
"GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN" is the inscription on the reverse of Maudie's gravestone in Fillmore Cemetery. It is in the same style as Isaac's and Harriet's gravestone in Garrison Cemetery.
The inscription on their gravestone is "GONE BEFORE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN" - a reference to the premature death of Isaac.
"Cause of death unknown" is the only way I have of describing Maudie.
Death certificates were not introduced
in Utah until 1905, which means that Muadie's (and Isaac's) cause of death is not officially recorded. From other sources I heard that Isaac suffered a heart attack.
I have not found any newspaper sources from this period which possibly could contain a reference to Maudie's death.
