Kinship Preserved

Contributor: Anne Ryan Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

by Judith Hale Everett, wife of Joe Everett, grandson Not long after I married my husband, I began to hear stories of his wonderful grandmother, who had passed away many years earlier. I quickly found that she and I had much in common: sewing, gardening, canning, cooking, camping, writing. I felt cheated at not having known this inspiring woman personally. I felt that no stories or pictures could give me the connection I craved. Then grandpa passed away, and the family offered me grandma’s entire store of canning jars as an inheritance. Most of the jars were still full of food, unusable after so many years, but the jars at least could be saved. As I gazed over the dusty storage room, I felt like I was transported into another time. The old canning equipment neatly stacked in one corner, the yellowed newspapers protecting the shelves, the sheer variety of canned goods in the mason jars, all started the gears turning in my imagination. I subconsciously considered the contents of each jar as I loaded them into boxes. Peas, beets, peaches, cherries, trout, corn, pears, tomatoes, pickles, relishes, jams and jellies; every one brought out a question or a memory. Details from stories about grandma, history I remembered, and bits of my own experience began tumbling around together. Grandma was a prolific canner, I thought, as I hauled the boxes of jars out to the garden. I dug a hole and started to dump the contents of the jars into it, hoping what nutrients were left would feed my future harvest. The smells from the different jars triggered a whole new train of thoughts. What recipe did she use for her relish? My husband still talks about grandma’s pickles, and I can see why! That chili sauce smells good, even after twenty years! And suddenly I realized that through the entire experience I had been musing about grandma, had been replaying all the stories and pictures of her, had pieced together enough still pictures and reconstructed memories into mental video clips, and the swirling, vague pictures had begun to form a solid, real, living person, much as 8 millimeter film, after a jerky jumble of still, immobile shots, warms to speed and the images come to life. Those dusty jars represented far more than mere sustenance; they embodied grandma’s best attributes: frugality, perseverance, creativity, preparedness, generosity, ingenuity, love. In accepting those jars, I was preserving her legacy, preparing it to be passed on with my own. In this inheritance I had found much more than common ground with grandma; I had found kinship with her.

Help! Grandpa’s Sitting on the Biscuits!

Contributor: Anne Ryan Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

by Berniece Almira Johnson Everett In the spring of 1926 our family swelled to a total of eight children, with the birth of a new baby girl on April 15. My parents decided a bigger home was an absolute necessity, so exciting plans were soon underway. It was decided that Mother would take the new baby and the two youngest children down to Grandma Thomas’ in Spanish Fork and stay there while the new home was being built. The rest of us would stay at the farm and live in make-shift quarters. The garage was fairly new, and with a good cleaning, it made a nice bedroom for my sister and me, plus storage space for some of the furniture. A lean-to shed on the west was intended for coal, but it was transformed into a kitchen. The dirt floor made it seem like pioneer times. A big tent, pitched nearby, made a comfortable bedroom for Dad and my three brothers. I was eight years old at the time and it seemed like the most adventurous experience of my life. It was like camping out all summer long. I was not at all impressed with the fact that my 14-year old sister Lucille was doing most of the cooking for the six of us. I just thought that’s the way it was when a person was 14. They know how to do almost everything. One day Grandpa Johnson came up to help out with the new house. Lucille cooked up an especially good meal. She even made biscuits. When they were ready to come out of the oven, she didn’t know where to put them. The table was set for dinner and there was no place on the kitchen cabinet, so she took a dishtowel from the drawer, spread it on the chair, and turned the biscuits onto the towel. She covered them over with another dishtowel to keep them warm. Lucille turned back to the stove to take care of the rest of the dinner and Grandpa Johnson came in. He mistook the dishtowel for a cushion and sat right down on the biscuits. Furthermore, he didn’t realize what he had done. He took off his hat, wiped the perspiration from his forehead, and sat there fanning himself with his hat. When Lucille saw what happened, she panicked and ran out the shed door. Up the path she dashed, with me right at her heels. When we reached Dad, she just blurted out, “Grandpa’s sitting on the biscuits!” Dad had a very puzzled look on his face as he asked, “You say he’s sitting on the biscuits?” “Yes,” she said, “He just--” and then she burst into tears. Between the two of us, we managed to tell him what had happened. Dad put his arm around her shoulders and gave her a little hug. He told her it was too bad about the biscuits. “But,” he said, “for land’s sake, don’t hurt Pa’s feelings.” He knew how embarrassed Grandpa would be if he knew what he had done. I don’t remember whether we had mashed biscuits for dinner or what, but I do remember that Grandpa’s feelings were more important than even those beautiful, golden-brown biscuits.

Berniece Everett (Johnson) was 21 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.
