Diary Entries of Druscilla Walters Howick

Contributor: dkrb Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

(Found in the records of Delores Walters Warren) Feb 20, 1878 Life began for me today. I arrived at the home of my parents. Robert H Walters and Emily Ann Bateman Walters who lived at West Jordan, UT. Sept 4, 1884 This is one of the big days of my life. I started to school. I have to walk 1 1/2 miles but I don't mind. It's the most fun. Nov 10, 1884 Today I learned that I must not whisper during school. The teacher punished me by making me sit with the boys, and when they went out to play I had to go with them. But after the boys went inside the girls came out to play and I stayed with them, so you see I had two recesses. May 6, 1886 A marvelous thing took place today. Yes, I was baptized and confirmed. Now I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and here's the record. Baptized in the River Jordan by James H. Turner and confirmed a member in the West Jordan Ward by Robert Ellwood. I shall always try to prove worthy of this wonderful blessing. Sept. 3, 1890 For long time I've been wanting to be able to join the Mutual Improvement Association and today I had that opportunity. I'm sure I'll love it and it will help me be a better young lady and oh, perhaps some day a better wife and mother. April 8, 1893 Yesterday I took two Sunday School classes into Salt Lake City for the dedication of the Salt Lake Temple. A day I shall always remember. May 14, 1893 Another milestone was reached today. I completed my 9th grade in school. This is such a wonderful world and so full of blessings and opportunities. Aug 14, 1895 Did you know how very much I should have liked to attend the B.Y.U? When Daddy gave me that opportunity it was pretty hard to convince him that I didn't really want to go. But you know how hard he has worked to save money to go into the grocery business. I couldn't use that money for my education when I know how many little ones he has to care for. I will be content by helping him in the store. July 5, 1900 This is the end of a big day for me. I thought I would never complete the washing for this family of eight. The new baby was cross and it rained yesterday and five pairs of little feet can bring in a lot of mud. What with washing on the board, preparing meals, tending baby and her mother and helping the others I feel as though I could fall asleep on my feet, but I'm earning a dollar and a half a week so I really mustn't complain. Dec 7, 1904 Something wonderful happened today. Can you guess what? Yes, the man of my choice, Edmund John Howick and I were married at my father's home in Coltman, Idaho by the Justice of the Peace. He's also and elder in the Church. Some day I pray we may be married in the temple. How happy I am to be in Idaho and begin a home of my own. My dreams are coming true. June 11, 1905 A tiny baby boy came to us prematurely today. He only weighed three pound and three quarters oz. I never knew anyone could be so happy. Mar 21, 1909 Sorrow and loneliness have entered our home. God has called our three babies home. I sometimes think it is more than I can bear, but since I realize there are many things worse than death I am able to carry on. Dec 18, 1909 Once more we are going to be blessed with a little child, I can scarcely wait for the time to pass. April 10, 1910 God has been kind to Ed and I. We have another baby. Another girl. She weighs 6 lbs and has brown hair. It has been hard to part with our little ones, but we have always felt "God knows best." But, oh I sincerely pray we might have the privilege of raising this little one to womanhood. Nov 15, 1915 Two more little ones have come to us. One lived only a few hours and the other was born dead. I have never asked that things be made easy for me but only that I might be strong enough to carry my burdens. I still have one little girl. What a precious store of jewels are waiting us in the next world. Feb 19, 1915 We are making new friends in Thomas, Idaho having moved here from Coltman a few weeks ago. People are friendly and I've been asked to be a Relief Society visiting teacher down here also. I haven't missed many visits since I first started in 1909. Feb 4, 1920 This has been my day of days. All is well now, for today we were married and sealed for all eternity in the Logan Temple. May 3, 1921 I never dreamed I would ever be called to serve as president of the religion class, but I have promised to support Earnest Hale by making the Thomas Ward a worthy example. Oct 21, 1924 We have adopted a little boy. He came to us today. He will never know how much he means to us and the happiness he brings. Apr 10, 1928 Once more we are making new friends. This time in the Blackfoot First Ward. Aug 3, 1929 Again I am a Relief Society visiting teacher. We made our first visit today. I love the work. Jan 16, 1947 Did you know that another little grandchild was born today? Yes, a little boy who will bear the name of his grandfather. We now have seven grandchildren. The same number as our own family. I have much for which I am thankful.

Life timeline of Druscilla Howick

1878
Druscilla Howick was born on 20 Feb 1878
Druscilla Howick was 7 years old when Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies on Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Louis Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases, and his discoveries have saved many lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax. His medical discoveries provided direct support for the germ theory of disease and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".
Druscilla Howick was 14 years old when Thomas Edison patents the motion picture camera. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Druscilla Howick was 26 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.
Druscilla Howick was 34 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Druscilla Howick was 52 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.
Druscilla Howick was 62 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.
Druscilla Howick was 68 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning.
