Memories of Grandma Anna Laker Williams

Contributor: SouthPawPhilly Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Grandma Williams was the only grandparent that I ever knew. My other grandparents passed away before I was born. I remember grandma always being so sweet to everyone. When she passed away in 2007, we found a bunch of gifts that she was going to give to her neighbors just to let them know that she was thinking about them. We made sure that those were delivered afterward. Whenever I would go to visit she would always have something waiting there for us. She was the kindest lady that anyone would ever meet. One year on my birthday she gave me a doll, and made little clothes for her. That was so special I loved that doll and I still have that doll after almost 10 years. Every time that we would go to a restaurant grandma would take home the little salt packets that they keep on the table. Grandma always had a perm or was always wearing curlers. She was a cute lady and I love her.

Contributor: SouthPawPhilly Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Daniel Cornelius Laker Memorial Service May 14, 1965 Organ Prelude Invocation – Bishop James Budd Historical Sketch and Tribute – Elmer Richens “Daniel Cornelius Laker was born April 27, 1885, in St. Charles, Idaho, the second son of Lashbrook and Kate Evans Laker. He attended the public school in St. Charles, and later the Brigham Young Academy in Logan. On June 27, 1907, he married Martha Woodhouse in the Logan Temple. She died the following year. He served a mission for the Latter Day Saint Church in Australia from 1909 to 1911. After his return from the mission field he went back to the family home and labored with his brothers on the farm. In 1915, on the 30th of June, he married Dora Catherine Hemmert in the Salt Lake Temple. The following year he went to work for the Power Company at the Lifton Plant on Bear Lake. To Dan and Dora were born five children: Daniel Reed, Blaine Hemmert, Dora LaRee, William Bryan, and Anna Cornelia. Brother Laker has been active in the Church all his life, particularly in Priesthood and welfare work. He served as a president of the 24th and 186th Quorum of Seventy for several years and as a Stake Missionary. He was active in Temple work. He was a good husband and father, upholding the principles of the Gospel and magnifying his calling as an Elder in Israel. He passed away quietly on the morning of May 11, 1965. He is survived by his wife, Dora, four children, Reed, LaRee, Bryan and Anna, 17 grandchildren and one great grandchild. He has two living brothers and on sister; Joseph, Willard and Mrs. Nellie Shuster. Brother Laker was my home teacher for many years. He was always kind and helpful to those in need. He helped me to gain a testimony of the Gospel and encouraged me in church activity.” Remarks – Bishop Glen Burt “We have known the love and friendship of the Laker family for many years … Dan was a quiet, humble man. He was reliable, honest, trustworthy and always filled his church assignments faithfully. He was in every sense of the word a gentleman … his good deeds rose above his faults. He loved his family and his fellow man … you, his children and grandchildren, remember when tempted to do wrong, the good example Daniel he has set for you ….” Piano Solo –Audrey Langton A medley of Dan’s favorite songs he used to sing as a member of the Ward Male Quartette, including “Let the Lower Lights be Burning,” “I Need Thee Every Hour,” “Rock of Ages,” “Sweet Hour of Prayer” and “School Thy Feelings.” Remarks –Elder Irwin Laker “…As a man thinketh so is he and as a man singeth so is he, also. Brother Laker loved to sing the Gospel message … he was quick to sympathize and slow to anger. He readily shared the joys and sorrows of others … he sought knowledge from the Scriptures and from good books. He learned the value and virtue of hard labor and it molded his character. He was thrifty, frugal, sincere and trustworthy. He did not shirk his tasks, be they large or small. Brother and Sister Laker have been faithful workers in the church. Now his spirit has been released to go on to further work and developments. We have the promise of a resurrection and know that if we are faithful in our flesh, we shall see God … Dan Laker was a good man. Like Nathanial he was a man without guile and merits a place with the Father.” Vocal Solos – Shirley Seley – “In the Garden” and “Perfect Day” Benediction – Willard E. Laker “…He has gone to join the innumerable host of relatives and friends who have gone before; and to help prepare the way for those of us to follow – just as he helped prepare the way for so many of us in this life… We commend him to Thee and ask Thy blessings upon those who remain awaiting our call as he has been called; in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Organ Postlude Dedication of the Grave - D. Reed Laker “…May his loved ones be comforted and may Thy tender mercy attend us always…. I dedicate this plot of ground as the final resting place of the earthly remains of one of Thy humble servants and pray that Thy protecting care may always attend this spot, now hallowed in our memory …. Amen.

The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Anna Laker Williams was 13 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.
Anna Laker Williams was 28 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California. The Disneyland Hotel is a resort hotel located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, owned by the Walt Disney Company and operated through its Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products division. Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
Anna Laker Williams was 38 years old when Thirty-five hundred United States Marines are the first American land combat forces committed during the Vietnam War. The United States Marine Corps (USMC), also referred to as the United States Marines, is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for conducting amphibious operations with the United States Navy. The U.S. Marine Corps is one of the four armed service branches in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States.
Anna Laker Williams was 46 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
Anna Laker Williams was 62 years old when The tanker Exxon Valdez spilled 10.8 million US gallons (260,000 bbl; 41,000 m3) of oil into Prince William Sound, Alaska, causing one of the most devastating man-made maritime environmental disasters.
