Eulogy

Contributor: afoley Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Anna Lucile Jensen Lowe was born April 29, 1909 to Christian and Metta Marie Gregerson Jensen in Mayfield, Utah. She was the 10th of 12 children. She was raised on a farm. She helped her mother grate old potatoes to make starch. They also made soap. She gathered chokecherries and service berries for her mother to make jam and jelly. Their washer was made of wood. There was a lever that moved back and forth to clean the clothes. Water was to stay in the washer to prevent the wood from splitting. Grandma would also help churn the butter and herd the cows. There were many farms that would hire men to thresh the wheat. In order for this to take place, each farm would feed eight or more men until the job was done. This may have taken two to three days, so Grandma and her mother would prepare food for two or three days. Her folks never owned a car. They traveled by horse and buggy or by wagon or a sleigh pulled by a team of horses. Grandma graduated from the 9th grade in Mayfield in 1923 at the age of 14. Her father died that year. It was necessary for her to quit school to help with her younger brother and sister and also to help on the farm. In order to finish high school she would need to go 12 miles to Manti. Her mother died in 1929 when she was 20 years old. She and the two younger children went to live with her older married sister. She met Merrill Lowe through a friend in 1930. Grandma said it must have been love at first sight. They corresponded for a year before they married. They were married in Mayfield June 1931. Grandpa had two children from a former marriage, a girl Ida (10) and a boy Ivan (8). Their mother died 5 years before he married Grandma. Grandma raised these children as her own. They lived during the depression. Jobs were scarce. Grandpa worked at odd jobs to get by. They moved to Salem April 1937 and a year later they moved to Orem. Grandpa went to work installing furnaces. They have lived in the same vicinity for 48 years. Their home was built in 1941 and they lived there for 46 years. Grandpa died June 29, 1987, They had six children. They had a three year old girl, Gloria, who died from hip surgery April 9, 1937. Shirl, 27 years of age, died from heart surgery June 13, 1964 and Ivan, 57, did from a automobile and motorcycle accident Nov 23, 1980. Grandma did temple work with Grandpa. She also taught Primary for 25 years. She liked teaching the 10 and 12 year old boys. I was one of those boys and I remember how hard she worked with us. She would go hiking to pass off the five mile hike, cooking, nature and many more. I do remember the time she was concerned about the weather, and not being able to pass us off with fire making. So she had it in her back yard. When I succeeded in starting the fire she got so excited. She was telling me how proud she was. Then I looked up at her and she started to laugh. I did not know why! Then she said, "You got a little singed." My eyebrows and eyelashes were half gone. I spent a lot of time at Grandma's house and each time I would knock on the door she would let me in and say. " Come have some cookies and milk." She did lots of canning. I remember bottles of jam and fruit would be on the counter. She was a visiting teacher for Relief Society. She did beautiful embroidery. She cut and sewed quilt blocks. She loved to walk. She never learned to drive a car. Many times she would walk to Provo to shop and be back home before Grandpa got home. When Grandpa died in 1987 she stayed with her children until last March when she was put in a rest home. She was very unhappy there, especially after her stroke and having to be in a wheel chair and not being able to see too well. There are 5 children still living, there are 31 grandchildren and 69 great grandchildren. She was loved by many and a good neighbor, mother and grandma.

Life timeline of Anna Lucile Lowe (Jensen)

1909
Anna Lucile Lowe (Jensen) was born on 29 Apr 1909
Anna Lucile Lowe (Jensen) was 8 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

Anna Lucile Lowe (Jensen) was 30 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Anna Lucile Lowe (Jensen) was 55 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
