Activities:

Devout Mormon, dedicated mother, conscientious nurse, studious youth from Canada’s rural farm lands.  She was raised in a small house that used a wood stove for heating and cooking.  She told of standing around the stove at night then running into the dark bedroom and jumping into bed before the cold removed all warmth.  Learned to drive a car and earned an LPN degree in her forties while maintaining a farmer’s household.  Lived in Alberta, British Columbia, Washington, and Utah.
