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.

Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1896 (Wednesday) – I went to school. At noon, I went down to the post office with May Grover. I went over to Grandma Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller) for lunch and found Art (David Arthur Sperry) there. He is here on a few days visit. In the evening, Min (Minnie Lamont Abbott) and I went over to the merry-go-round just west of the park. Bob McCune was there and he gave Min and I ride, we rode twice and then Bob and I had a ride. We stayed on again and Min and John Kendall had a ride also. Bob walked up to Grandma Sperry’s with me.
