Bertella June Daniels Brown Douglas Life Story

Contributor: MJ Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

(Life story submitted by Bertella June Daniels Brown Douglas and printed in a book entitled "Thomas Daniels Brown and Esther Wardle--Their Ancestors and Descendants"] I, Bertella June Daniels Brown Douglas, was born June 11, 1918, in Farr West, Ogden, Utah, at the old home where my brother and sister Watha and Frances now live. My father was Reuben Daniels Brown and my mother Frances Jane Howell Brown. I am the youngest child of eleven children, seven of whom are now living. I also am the youngest granddaughter of Thomas Daniels Brown. I had wonderful parents and I loved them very much. Being the youngest in the family of eleven you would think they would know just how to raise me, but instead of clamping down on me, I was spoiled worse than any of them. When I was the age of three, my oldest sister, Dorcas, died and left twin girls, Dorcas Ray and Mary Fay. Dorcas died when the babies were born. Four months later one of the babies died, Mary Fay. My mother took the babies and cared for them. This was quite a job with such a large family, but she did very well. At the age of three and a half I tipped a kettle of tea over on me. I scalded my legs and body and I was in bed for weeks. Bertha Murdock, a good friend of my mother use to come every morning and wash and dress my sores. I use to hate to see her come and was very unhappy with her. Now I love her for it. She did a wonderful job and I appreciate it now. I still have big scares on my body and legs, but I am fortunate to even be here. I started school at the age of six. My first teacher was Mrs. Neil. I went to school in the old Farr West schoolhouse. I also had Mr. Leland Reese for a teacher and to me he was the most wonderful teacher I ever had. I also had a teacher that helped me at home with my lessons. He really wasn’t a school teacher, but he taught me as much as any teacher I ever had, and that was my brother-in-law, Theo Thompson. I lived a good part of my teenage life with my sister, Wanda. She had poor health and I tried in every way to help her. I fell in love with Bill Douglas and we were married September 21, 1939 at Theo and Wanda Thompson’s home. They had just moved into a new home. Uncle Dell Daniels Brown married us. We lived in Farr West for the first year and paid eight dollars a month rent and had a real nice place. Five dollars a week was the most our grocery bill ever was. We then moved to Bonneville Park. We lived there for fourteen years. In the year of 1941, Jan. 26, my first baby girl was born, Dixie Sue. Of course we were all thrilled and happy with her. In 1945, Feb. 17, we had another baby girl, Vickie Jo. We were also thrilled with her. In the year of 1950, May 8th, we had another baby girl, Billie June. Of course we wanted a boy very much, but after we got her we wouldn’t trade her for all the boys in Ogden City. We named her Billie June after her Dad and also her mother. We now live on 665 30th Street, Ogden, Utah. I love outdoor life especially fishing and boating. I love to hunt. I go deer hunting and also pheasant hunting a great deal. I hope I never get too old to enjoy life.
