History: Lillian Alcorn

Shortly after Douglas and Vonna were married, I began to teach Vonna how to drive do she could have a little freedom. I soon learned to love Vonna very much. She is very sweet person and seemed to return my love. I shall always remember when she invited me to go with her to a Mothers’ and Daughters’ party. It meant a great deal to me and I appreciate having her close to me. Grace was expecting another baby soon after the first of the year, in January 1957. We were happy for her and also a little concerned. I wanted to go back to Virginia and spend some time with her and help with the tiny one. They were due to go overseas soon after the baby was born and I wanted to see them before they left so with the help of the family we began to plan the trip. However the trip came a little sooner than expected when Don called us on 30 December 1956 to tell us that Grace had had a lovely little girl. The mother and baby were doing fine. They named the baby Lillian Lorraine after her two grandmothers.

With this surprise I left right after the first of the year. I went back on the bus and enjoyed it very much, except for getting pretty tired. I enjoyed being with Grace and the family. They took me to visit many places of interest which had to do with our country’s history. I surely get a thrill out of little Ronnie and the older girls. Ronnie was talking pretty good and I was amazed at how clearly he could pronounce his r’s –especially for a child his age. I spent several weeks with them before coming back home.

I returned home and got back into the routine of things and got caught up on all the things that had gotten behind while I was gone. Then about Mother’s Day, Ralph and his girlfriend, Aleene Sumsion talked to us about getting married. I was very happy about it because I felt that Aleene was a very special person and just the girl to make Ralph happy. They had met at the BYU and Aleene graduated in June 1957 with a degree and a teaching certificate. They planned for her to teach school while Ralph finished his last year at BYU.

Aleene was from Washington State and went home to work for the summer. Ralph had to spend two weeks in Washington with the ROTC program for summer camp and they were able to see each other during this time. They planned to be married 21 August 1957 in the Salt Lake Temple. Ralph and Aleene were both good planners and things seemed to go just as they had anticipated. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on 21 August 1957. Dwain and Marjorie and others of the family came up for the ceremony and the reception which followed in the 4th Ward in Salt Lake City. Now four of our seven living children had married and all in the Temple.

With the coming of fall we had two lovely new grandchildren born to our children. They were adding up fast now. Marjorie had her little girl Dwana Kay Judkins on 26 September 1957 and Vonna had their first baby, a boy on 4 November 1957. He was named William Douglas Rowley. We are always so grateful when these precious souls come into the world healthy and strong.

The city bus lines had a stop across the street from our house and I would catch the bus right after Grant left for school and go into Salt Lake City and spend the day at the library. I would come home before Grant got home from school. I did a lot of research on Dave’s lines because I had come to a standstill on my own lines. I enjoyed doing this research very much and felt that it was a very important part of our salvation. I only wish I could find more on my own lines and I wish some of my children would take more interest in this wonderful work and help me a little. I also enjoyed taking genealogical courses that were offered through the Stake. (Mother completed three of these courses and the family was given the certificate for the last course the day after her death).

Clayton came home from his mission in June 1958 and had some wonderful experiences to tell us about. He was riding his bicycle one day in Crescent City when he was hit by a car. He received some bad cuts above his eye and on his forehead, but they did a very good job sewing them up because the scars were hardly noticeable. It was wonderful to have him home again.

In April, 1958 Marjorie and I planned and gave a baby shower for Aleene as they were expecting their first baby in May. She was still teaching school and Ralph was still attending the “Y”. Aleene’s principal let her teach for quite a while after he was supposed to let her go which helped them quite a bit. The shower was held in Marjorie’s new home in Orem, Utah.

On 21 May 1958 Aleene gave birth to their baby, a boy, at the Utah Valley Hospital in Provo, Utah. They named him Kurtis Wayne. Ralph was a typical new father, happy and excited and grateful that both his wife and new son were well and had gotten along so well. This brought our number of grandchildren to 9; 5 boys and 4 girls. It surely doesn’t take long for one’s posterity to grow.

Dave was still in construction work and with the fall and winter coming he was soon out of work. Dwain’s father, Leonard Judkins who is a small contractor in Provo, gave Dave work for the winter months of 1958-59. Dave stayed with Dwain and Marjorie and their family. It was hard to be without him during the week, but the boys and I did come down on some weekends and Dave came home on others.

We also came down to spend Christmas 1958 with Marjorie and the family. It was a lovely day and we enjoyed it very much. However, before we came down, Vonna gave birth to their second baby. Scott Calvin, their second son was born 19 December 1958. She was delivered by cesarean section, but got along really well. They were thrilled at his arrival. This made 10 grandchildren, now.

Hugh was getting anxious to go on a mission so he approached the Bishop there in Bountiful and talked to him about going. The Bishopric was happy that he wanted to go and started the ball rolling. Hugh left for the Argentine Mission Field on 9 February 1959. He flew to New York and to Argentina. Again my heart was full for this spiritual blessing of having sons go on missions for the Church. We were still receiving some of the insurance money left us when David was killed in Korea and that helped to support Hugh, as it had Ralph and Clayton.

I was called to be a Visiting Teacher there in the ward soon after we had moved and I do enjoy it very much. It keeps me in contact with the sisters and members of the ward. I also was called to be the Speech Director in MIA and this is another job I really enjoyed. Since all but Grant were gone now I enjoyed working with young people again. It was part of my responsibility to assign all the talks that were given by young people in the ward. This included 2 ½ minute talks in Sunday School, talks in MIA and in Sacrament Meetings. I also taught the lessons that were outlined. I like to feel that the young people liked me as much as I enjoyed them.

History: Lillian Alcorn

In March 1955, Marjorie was expecting her first baby and I wanted to be there with her. It is such an important event in the life of a woman and Marjorie and Dwain had written and asked me to share it with them. They sent me the money for one way on the bus and we managed the other way fare and I arrived in Salt Lake City about a week before her baby was due. Her baby was a week later than expected but he did arrive on 7 March 1955 and was a healthy perfect little boy which they named David Lenn Judkins.

I returned home and Dave and I decided that we would sell our place and move to Utah. We could be closer to some of our children and close to the Temple and Genealogical Library where we could do research work and temple work. So we found some buyers for our house in Eureka, stored our furniture with some friends, bought a Studebaker Station Wagon and headed for Utah. We got to Marjorie and Dwain’s apartment and spent several days with them. Then we found a basement apartment and moved to ourselves.  Dave found work with the BYU maintenance crew. We stayed in Prove for about two months and the decided to move to Salt Lake City. We found a house for rent in the 4th Ward, Temple View Stake and moved in.

Dave then hired a man with a truck to take he and Hugh back to Eureka to get our furniture. The Eel River was flooding and was doing a lot of damage. It was washing away whole towns and devastating roads and bridges etc. It rained almost all the time they were traveling. They got to Eureka safely and got the furniture loaded and Dave bought a large tarp to cover the whole load. Some of the furniture had gotten wet while in storage and some of it was ruined but most of it came back to us in fine condition.

We enjoyed living in the 4th ward and we were called to serve in the ward in various capacities. Among them was Sunday School teaching, MIA work, Genealogy work and Dave also served as one of the Seven Presidents of the Seventies. I remember giving a 2 ½ minute talk once in the 4th Ward. I wore a bright red hat with the flashiest earrings I had and a huge bright red flower on my shoulder and as much bright jewelry as I could. Then I talked about dressing properly when giving a talk. I indicated that oft times the things we wear distract from what we are saying. I heard a lot of snickers in the audience but as I talked I started removing some of the things I was wearing. I think my point was well received.

We tried to go to the Temple once a week and to do all the research we could. We also enjoyed being within visiting distance of Marjorie and Dwain and their baby, David. On Christmas Day 1955, all the family except Grace was home for the first time in a long while. Clayton had been discharged from the Army, Douglas had a leave from the Air Force, Ralph had received an honorable release from the mission field, and Marjorie and Dwain came up from Provo. It was indeed a wonderful Christmas that year.

While he was home at Christmas, Douglas met a young lady in the ward named Vonna Ensign. He was quite taken with her but he had to go back to his base. When he was discharged from the service in about March of 1956 he again began to see Vonna and their friendship grew very strong in the coming months.

In February 1956, Grace and Don came to see me and they were prepared to go to the Temple and have their marriage vows sealed for time and eternity and have their children sealed to them. They went to the Temple on 21 February 1956 and Marjorie and Dwain came up from Provo to go with us. President David A. Broadbent sealed them, but before the sealing he drew Don up beside him and asked him if he knew how the Lord created Adam and Don said, “Sure, from the dust of the earth.” Then he asked Don how the Lord created Eve and Don replied, “The Lord took a rib from Adam’s side and created Eve.” Then President Broadbent said, “That’s right Don, and that is where she will always belong, through thick and thin, trouble and sorrow and trials. By your side, hand in hand. Talk things over and work them out together always side by side. Not just tagging along behind or going way out ahead, but side by side.” They were sealed and those lovely little children dressed in white were brought in and sealed to their parents. It was a wonderful experience for us. We are grateful that they have finally had their marriage sealed in the House of the Lord.

I enjoyed sewing and made many dresses and clothes for myself, the boys and my grandchildren. I also made many baby sweater-sets for the newer grandchildren. Marjorie gave birth to her second child, another son on 4 April 1956. This one they named Deon Eugene. My, he was a big baby, weighing 9 lbs. 6 oz. She got along just fine and now they have two lovely little boys.

In June 1956 Clayton was prepared to go on a mission and was interviewed by the bishop of the 4th ward. He received a call to labor in the Northern California Mission field. We were quite surprised that this was his call as we had just moved from that area the year before. He accepted his calling and enjoyed his labors very much. It was a great source of comfort to me to see my sons fill missions and I will always be grateful that they were found worthy to do so.

The first part of September 1956, we found a very nice house in Bountiful and we decided to buy it. Douglas however, had planned to be married on 21 September, in the Salt Lake Temple and they had already rented their apartment so he stayed there for the next few weeks so he would be closer to work and to Vonna.

Douglas and Vonna were married in a very impressive Temple Ceremony and we now had three of our children married and all in the Temple. They had chosen companions that suited their personalities and we loved each of them.

We lived in the Bountiful 16th Ward with Edgar Barton as our as our Bishop. Shortly after we moved to Bountiful Dave was sustained and ordained a High Priest by the Quorum leader, Owen G. Hughes. He was then made secretary of the 16th Ward H. P. Group. We were very happy with our move to Bountiful and soon found that we had moved into a choice ward. The people were wonderful and very friendly. They welcomed us warmly and made us feel right at home. It wasn’t long before I was singing in the Ward Choir. Throughout my lifetime music has been a source of great comfort to me. I have sung for many years and have participated in a number of choirs and Singing Mothers’ group.
