ARDITH WHITING JENSEN HISTORY

Contributor: Sue/Ahnenwald Created: 2 years ago Updated: 5 months ago

Written by Raymond Jensen – Edited by Layne E. Wilson This is the life History of Ardith Whiting Jensen as told by her husband Raymond Jensen. Ardith passed away before she was able to write her own history. Ardith was born August 26, 1931 to Charles Leonard Whiting and Olive Rachel Carlton. Ardith was born in Mapleton, Utah. Ardith was the youngest of ten children. Her Father was a Blacksmith and graduated from Brigham Young University (BYU). Her Mother also graduated from BYU and was a teacher. Ardith's Mother was raised in Bear Lake , Michigan. Her Mother and an Aunt joined the Church and came to Salt Lake City, Utah. Ardith had a lot of Nieces and Nephews. She enjoyed and loved them all. Ardith attended school in Mapleton, Utah where she had many friends. Ardith's Father had a big garden and grew lots of vegetables. He also had and orchard over by the hill where he grew peaches, apricots and cherries. On the home place they had apple, walnut and pears. Her Father would go to Price, Utah and sell garden stuff. They also had chickens and pigs. They would sometimes take fryer chickens over to the mines in Price, Utah. All the kids had to help grow all the stuff. Ardith'a Mother worked very hard to help the family. In 1936 Charles and Olive decided to buy a new Ford Pick-Up so Olive and Harley (Ardith's brother) went to Detroit, Michigan and purchased the new pick-up. It was better to go to Price, Utah to sell all the produce they grew. Ardith and Carma always had to ride in the back of the pick-up; they both always thought that was a bad thing for them to have to do. Ardith had a lot of friends at school. It was always easy for her to make friends. In 1939 Charles got sick with his lungs and had to have one lung removed. He was in the hospital for over a year, almost two years. Boots and Harley (Ardith’s Siblings) were singing in a Band in California. While there Boots met lrel Barrus who later were married and settled in Pittsburg, California. Olive sent Carma and Ardith down to live with Boots. Irel was in the service in Europe. Carma was old enough to work to help get some money. The girls came home for the school year. Ardith had to grow up fast and learn how to take care of herself. Don Blanchard and June (Ardith’s Sister) bought a home in Springville, UT. Don had to go to the service as war was on. He was in the Navy. Olive sent Ardith to live with June. They had to live off the money that June got from the government. Things were very tight for everyone. June said that Ardith saw a sweater that she wanted. When June got her check she went to buy it for her but it had already been sold. Ardith's Mother seemed to feel that she was through raising children or else worn out. In 1946, Olive sent Ardith to live with Harley and Marie in Firth, Idaho. Harley fixed a show house in Firth and ran it. They lived upstairs by the Dance Hall. Ardith started school in Firth, Idaho and would help Harley with the show house after school. There was a fellow who was on crutches who was going into the show house, but as he went to go through Ardith closed and locked the door. Harley told her that she was not to do that to a crippled person. That person was Raymond Jensen who later became her husband. It seemed the reason that I came to Firth, Idaho which was to meet and marry Raymond. I was young but by the way I grew up I was more mature. Once Raymond who was driving a truck hauling potatoes asked me to go with him. This was the start of our relationship. Raymond asked me to marry him. Harley said that we had to go to Utah and ask my folks. Mother thought it was fine but Dad hesitated. I had told Raymond that I was 18 years old. So when we went to get the marriage license I had to tell him the truth, that I was 17 years old. But when we got the license I wrote down 16 years old which was correct. Raymond's Mother and Jarvis his brother and Harley were there when we got married by a Bishop. It cost $10.00. it was Bishop Anderson in Blackfoot, Idaho who married us. From this point on her history is with Raymond Jensen's history. Ardith passed away on September 29, 2005 in Blackfoot, Idaho. She is buried in Blackfoot, Idaho. Additional Comments by Layne E. Wilson on March 16, 2013 My memories of Raymond & Ardith Whiting Jensen I am Layne Wilson the grandson of Boots Whiting Barrus. I was born on June 11, 1963. I grew up in West Jordan, Utah. Ardith Whiting Jensen is the aunt of my mother Beulah Delayne Barrus Wilson (Boots’s daughter). I came to know Ardith and Raymond Jensen during my youth when my parents occasionally visited their farm in Wapello, Blackfoot, and Idaho. I consider Aridity and Raymond my 2nd Idaho Grandparents. Aridity and Boots had similar personalities. Aridity and Raymond were two of the finest people anyone could ever know. Through my life I stopped to visit often staying overnight when I passed through Eastern Idaho every few years. I remember their simple small farmhouse. Raymond and Ardith always cooked us the greatest breakfast. I know that the Jensen family worked very hard often putting everything on the line just to survive with their farming lifestyle. Aridity and Raymond were hard working potato farmers and narrated their farming experience during my visits with them. These were very pleasant memories for me my entire life. Raymond & Ardith Jensen owned a small home on their 40 acre farm. It had an old fashioned kitchen with a wood burning stove and an older electric stove with one element burned out. The story is that one night during a thunderstorm a bolt of lightning had come through the kitchen window and struck one of the elements and burned it out. They had a cat named “Taffy” There were lots of feral cats running loose outside on the farm to keep the mice population down. I also remember playing with Raymond’s tractor and got my first experience learning to drive a pickup truck when I was about 14. Their home was very simple but a home full of love welcoming everyone who visited. I felt very much at home there. I have memories of Ardith taking us to the Eastern Idaho State Fair in Blackfoot in 1978 and learned to appreciate the Idaho farming culture. From that time on Lidia (my wife) and I spent several Labor Day Weekends with them. When I served in Iraq, there were several settings there that would remind me or Raymond’s farm back in Wapello, ID.

Life timeline of Carma Lou Andersen (Whiting)

Carma Lou Andersen (Whiting) was born on 2 Aug 1929
Carma Lou Andersen (Whiting) was 10 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.
Carma Lou Andersen (Whiting) was 16 years old when World War II: Nagasaki is devastated when an atomic bomb, Fat Man, is dropped by the United States B-29 Bockscar. Thirty-five thousand people are killed outright, including 23,200-28,200 Japanese war workers, 2,000 Korean forced workers, and 150 Japanese soldiers. Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.

Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
