A Life History Told In Her Own Words

PREVIOUS   1  2   3   4   5   6

In the spring of 1966, Seth and I went on a trip to California with Brent and Sandra. On March 8, we were at a motel in Petaluma, California, when Seth had a heart attack and passed away. It was approximately 5:00 p.m. After arrangements were made for the body to be shipped to Logan, we came immediately back to Providence to take care of funeral arrangements. Seth's funeral was held at the Providence First Ward Chapel on March 12 and he was buried in the Providence Cemetery. There was some snow on the ground at that time but on the day of the funeral it was a beautiful day.

After Seth's passing, I worked as a sales clerk for about two years at a store in Logan. I then worked as a cook in Providence Elementary School for nine years. I retired from that position in 1977.

A new church house was built on the Jacob Frederick property in about 1969. Providence First Ward was divided into two wards but I remained in the First Ward. Kenneth Spuhler was our bishop.
