The Life History of Florence Lucretia Goodwin written by daughter Ida May Turpin Lowe

Contributor: Turpinca Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Florence Lucretia Goodwin, the daughter of John William Goodwin and Catherine Maria Staker, was born 16 August 1878, in Sugarhouse, Salt Lake County, Utah. Her father immigrated to this country from Orsett, Essex, England with his mother, Maria A. Argent, when he was a small child. Mother was the eldest daughter and second child of a family of 12 children. Her brother, Avery, was two years and eight days older than her. Lucretia, her middle name, was given to her because her father's aunt had written from England requesting the new daughter be given that name. Mother started school at the age of eight years, at Butlerville, Utah where her father went to work in a paper mill. She was not able to go to school for long because they lived a long ways from school and the winter storms made it difficult to attend regularly for she had to walk and couldn't make it in the deep snow. She had very little education. She had migrane headaches all her life, which kept her out of school a great deal. Being the eldest girl in the family she missed a lot of school because she had to help care for her brothers and sisters. Her schooling ended at the third grade. When we lived in Coalville, her mother bore three children. Katie, with dark red hair, died of whooping cough. Mother remembered Katie at two rocking herself in a low cradle by sticking her legs through the rungs and pushing. While Katie was sick, their father brought home two dolls for his little girls. They were wax dolls, mother's was dressed in blue and Katies' in red. This was the first doll mother can recall having. Her mother's health failed so the family moved from Coalville to Butlerville, then to Sugarhouse where her brother, Nathan, was born. He was seven years and two and a half months younger than mother. In Sugarhouse they lived near her grandmother Staker. They played at her home a lot. She recalls climbing the big boxelder trees and building playhouses which they played in. Mother didn't have any girl playmates, just her brother Avery and Uncle Roy Staker. The children went to Primary in Sugarhouse. The little brick Primary building joined on to Grandma Staker's place. There the children went each week and sat on the benches that were placed in a circle. Each child would bear their testimonies. As mother remembered, each child would say about the same thing. Mother remembered this with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye. She lived a normal life with her brothers and sisters. Their parents taught them the gospel by precept and by example. They were taught to do their share of the tasks about the home. They also taught them to love and respect each other and their fellow men. Her father moved his family to Holladay and settled on a fruit farm. While living here, mother met and fell in love with and married the dark handsome Edward James Turpin. Their wedding day was 13 April 1898. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on 4 November 1903. They spent their honeymoon in a sheep camp. At that time, father was a sheepherder. Father was a farmer at heart and their first endeavor was a fruit farm in Holladay, Utah. It was next to Grandfather's farm. They operated this fruit farm for several years. During these years five children were born to them. When William was born, mother had the smallpox. Grandmother Turpin came and took care of her and the baby. Father, Edward, and Ida were fumigated out and lived with Grandmother Goodwin, until mother was well again. When Nathan was two years old, he had infantile paralysis. This left him crippled for life. All during Nathan's life, mother's faith and care was the things that kept him going. In 1909, the year that Juanita was born, they sold the fruit farm and moved to Idaho where they bought a farm southwest of Blackfoot, Idaho. Father and Uncle Nate Goodwin left in the spring with wagon and team taking two weeks to make the trip from Salt Lake City to Blackfoot. Mother followed a few weeks later with the five small children traveling by train. The first year they lived in a two room log house rented from Forest Larson. That winter mother grubbed sage brush during blizzards to keep her five children from freezing. Uncle Nate was on the lavas getting out cedar wood, and father was tending sheep to earn money for food. During this first year, father bought a forty-acre farm in the Thomas area. It was covered with huge sagebrush, which had to be cleared before a crop could be planted. Father moved his family to this farm in 1910. They lived in an old shanty and a tent while father built a new house with cement walls. Father moved his family to this farm in 1910. Water for the family was taken from an open well, drawn by hand over hand with oaken buckets. Sage brush was used for firewood to cook their meals. Kerosene lamps were used for light. Mother was a real helpmate to father, never complaining of the hardships she had to endure. During their pioneering days, five more children were born. A midwife, Grandma Crawford, as she was affectionately called, delivered Naomi and Jennie. Mother nearly gave her life when Rex was born. The doctor told her if she ever had another child, she would die. So all through her pregnancy with Jesse, she was really frightened, but as it turned out, it was one of her easier births. The Relief Society sisters washed and anointed her before Jesse was born. In 1914 father built a new home on the south end of the forty. When Jennie was a wee babe, they moved into the lovely home ( really an up-to-date home at this time). It had 7 rooms, bathroom, two big porches and a one basement room. We all were so very proud of this home. Father landscaped it and made it very lovely. It was while living here that Deola, Rex, and Jesse were born. Rex was a sickly baby. Many nights mother sat up holding him so he could get his breath. Because of all the loving care she gave him, she really clung to him. In November of 1926, William Melvin left for his mission, to the Southern States. He had to have a hernia operation and his tonsils removed before leaving. William was also married just befoer leaving for his mission to Mary Forman. William was a good missionary and made his family proud of him. While father and mother were in Salt Lake with William, mother had a double operation. She had a goiter taken out and a tumor taken off her leg. The leg operation left her crippled for the rest of her life. The cord was cut in her leg, causing her foot to drop down when she raised it. Before the doctor had released her to come home, she received word from home that Nathan was very very ill with inflammatory rheumatism. Juanita had been staying out of school taking care of him. We became so frightened over his condition that we didn't dare keep the news from Dad and Mother any longer. Mother insisted on coming home to Nathan. From the time she came home, she didn't rest until he was well again. This is a good example of the kind wonderful mother we had. She never thought of herself but always of others. Edward Richard was married January 1919 to Dora Noack. Ida May was married to Henry Nelson in November 1919. William Melvin was married to Mary Forman in November 1926. Juanita was married to Wilford Nelson in February 1927. Nathan Van Buran was married to Cecilia Roy in September 1929. Our parents were also blessed with eight grandchildren while living here. Dad wanting to help his sons get a home bought a 50-acre farm on the highway at Riverside and a 50-acre farm by the Thomas store. Shortly after purchasing the Riverside farm, father moved his family there. This house wasn't very good but it didn't take father long to make it a lovely modern home. This is the first time they had electricity. In the previous home, they first had kerosene lamps, later gas. He finally purchased a carbide lighting system. At that time, it was very wonderful. Here Naomi was married to Glen Taylor August 12, 1931. Father died on January 27, 1936. Jesse was killed October 31, 1936. Jennie was married to Millard Rooks September 24, 1936. Deola was married to Virgil Jolley on January 14, 1937. The deaths of father and Jesse were a severe blow to all of us but especially to mother. So when she and Rex were left alone, it was hard for mother to run the farm. She tried for several years with the help of her family, but she finally sold it to Nathan. She went to live in Nathan's home in Blackfoot on South Stout Street. It was while she lived in this home that Grandmother Goodwin became ill and came to live with mother. Mother cared for grandmother until her death. Grandmother was bedfast the last few months of her life. Mother was really an angel of mercy around sickness. Rex was married to Carol Samuelson on March 2, 1944. Because mother could not be left alone, Rex lived with her. The last few months of her life, due to bad health, she lived with her daughters. Her death came on December 4, 1962 at the age of 84 at the home of her daughter Jennie. Taking care of mother was a joy to all of us. She was truly a wonderful mother. On her 80th birthday, her family held an open house where her children, grandchildren and many friends joined with her to make it a delightful day and evening. She was an active church member and loved to do temple work. She held church callings as a Sunday School teacher, Relief Society teacher, Relief Society Counselor in the East Thomas Ward Relief Society, Primary Counselor in the Cotton Wood Primary, worked on the genealogy and old folks committees. While in the Relief Society, she and the sisters took care of the sick and prepared the dead for burial. She went into many homes to nurse the sick. During the flu epidemic, she went into homes never thinking of her own health, but she was truly blessed for this. I remember the time she and Aunt Carrie Goodwin sat day and night with the Bankhead baby (Athlene), and when the baby died, mother cried as if her heart would break. She said she could not have felt worse if Athlene had been her own baby. During her life in Blackfoot, she made her own income baby sitting. The children she tended and their parents learned to love her as a grandmother. Even after she was too old to tend children, those she had tended would bring her birthday and Christmas gifts. At her funeral, they sent flowers and attended her funeral. One boy who was then about 15 came to her casket and stood looking at her for a long time. In talking with him, he said "I sure did love her." Mother was an avid sports fan and was on hand for many baseball games. Television was a delight to her, giving her the opportunity to see the big league games. If a grandson or nephew or friend was playing, you could count on mother being there. She enjoyed going to the temple, and Juanita saw to it that she went often. We all miss mother greatly, but the things she taught us we will remember and be forever grateful. We thank our Father in Heaven for such a wonderful mother and father.

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.
Eddie R. Turpin was 31 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.
Eddie R. Turpin was 41 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.

Eddie R. Turpin was 59 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Eddie R. Turpin was 66 years old when Martin Luther King Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his death in 1968. Born in Atlanta, King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, tactics his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi helped inspire.
Eddie R. Turpin was 74 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
