Buena Ethel Healey Beck

Contributor: SouthPawPhilly Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Buena was born in Alpine, Utah, October 29, 1897. She always appreciated her English ancestors, the Healeys and Deveys and the Carlisles who settled in Alpine in pioneer days. They loved the gospel of Jesus Christ. They remained true to their covenants and left to the world descendents of whom they could well be proud. Her father, James Carlisle Healey did much for the town of Alpine and held many civic positions. He was active in the Church from his boyhood until his last days. Her mother, Hannah Alice Devey was born in England and passed her fifth birthday while crossing the ocean enroute to America. These good parents established a permanent home in Alpine and raised a family of two sons and seven daughters. Brother and Sister Healey were fortunate to live together for nearly 58 years and to see all their children married and comfortably settled. Buena considered it a great blessing to be born and reared in this fine family where from their childhood they were taught the principles of right living and where they were encouraged to accept the various positions in the Church as the calls came to them. They have been an exceptionally active family. June 26, 1918, she was married in the Salt Lake Temple to James Henry Beck and sealed for time and eternity. They became the parents of 2 sons and six daughters. Aside from her family duties, Buena has a record of church and public service which deserves commendation. Prior to her marriage she filled such positions in the ward as Teacher in the Sunday School, teacher of the Beehive Class in M.I.A. and was secretary in Primary. In 1938 she was called to be second Counselor in the Presidency of the Ward Genealogical Committee. Later she served as Counselor in the Relief Society, Counselor in Primary and a Relief Society visiting Teacher. She was also active in the Parents Teachers organization and was a member of the Mountainville Camp of the Daughters of the Pioneers. The first eight years of their married life were spent in Alpine. After that they lived one year in Cedar Valley and a short time in Magna. They then came back to Alpine which has since been their home. Buena possessed the qualities that are necessary to make a good mother. She was especially gifted in the arts of good cooking and housekeeping and wherever they have lived, their homes and yards have been kept neat and orderly. As neighbors, they were always friendly and accommodating, ready to assist anyone in trouble or to lend a helping hand to friend or stranger. Their one great sorrow was when they were called to part with their little daughter, Alice, in 1937, when she passed away at the age of seven years. Buena and Henry were good Latter-day Saints. They observed the laws of fasting, tithing, and family prayer, and the Sabbath Day found them in the Church gatherings. Buena has always been willing to supplement the family income with her work aside from her family duties and no doubt has overtaxed her strength. But together they have transformed one of the oldest homes in Alpine into a modern, comfortable, and convenient places where children and grandchildren love to gather. For the past 15 years Buena has been employed at the State Training School and has given the most efficient service. A few weeks ago her health was such that she was advised to rest from her work, but little did we realize at that time that her rest would be permanent. She wanted so much to live and enjoy her home and family. Although at times during her illness she was not able to receive callers, the great number of cards and messages of love that came to her and the prayers of her many friends gave evidence of the high esteem in which this good sister was held, and she appreciated it all to the fullest extent. She passed away Saturday, November 6, 1954, at the Utah Valley Hospital in Provo. Besides her husband, she is survived by seven children: James Daryl of Spanish Fork William LeGay of Alpine Mrs. Verna Nichols, Salt Lake City Mrs. Ramah Charlotte, Salt Lake City Mrs. Jewell Simmons, Anchorage, Alaska Mary Carla and Merla, Alpine Also seven grandchildren And one brother: Elroy D. Healey, Alpine. And four sisters: Mrs. LaRue Hall of Magna Mrs. Verland Beck of Alpine Mrs. Pearl Carpenter, El Nonte, California Mrs. Ferren, Sager, Salt Lake City Found in my Grandmother Verland Beck's genealogy Submitted by Yvonne Williams

Life timeline of Buena H. Beck

Buena H. Beck was born on 29 Oct 1897
Buena H. Beck was 6 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Buena H. Beck was 17 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Buena H. Beck was 32 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. 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.
Buena H. Beck was 42 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people.
