Then to Gallup and Church Rock, New Mexico to visit their son Keith, who is filling a church mission in the South West Indian Mission. From there they came back to Duchesne.

A conference visitor was Leon Rowley, a former bishop of the St. Ignitius Ward, who, with others, arrived in Salt Lake City, Friday, April 4 to attend General Conference. They left for the return trip Sunday afternoon April 6.

Leon was Branch President for some six years, then when the Missoula Stake was formed he was ordained bishop of the St. Ignitius Ward, and served for a year. He was released from the office of bishop and was put in the Stake High Council. Leon is the son of John Emerson who is the son of John Thompson, Jr.

Due to illness, Lucy M. Rowley Wilcox of St. Helena, California was unable to come to conference this time. It’s the first time she has missed coming for some time.
