My Memories of Lois : by her sister, Ruth Garrett MacKay

Contributor: crex Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

My Memories of Lois Written by her sister, Ruth Garrett MacKay I can remember Ray and DeLora fighting but Lois didn’t get involved. When we moved to Tenth East she ran around with a great bunch of kids. That is when she met your dad [Joseph Thomas Edmunds Sr] and these kids were always together having fun. This was during the depression so no one had any money, but that didn’t seem to matter. Lois was always happy. Lois and I slept in the same bed at that time, but we didn’t do much talking. I guess there was too much difference in our ages. The day I remember well was when Joey [Joseph Thomas Edmunds Jr] was born. It seems to me it was on a Sunday evening. When things got really serious, I had to go down [to] the basement with the boys. I could still hear her cry out and I remember thinking, “If that doctor doesn’t get here pretty soon I’m going to bite my nails.” Well, I did, and he finally came. It was Lionel who lived in Sandy. He was Charlotte’s (Joe’s sister’s husband). After the baby was all cleaned up we got to [go] back upstairs. When I saw him I thought he was deformed. He slanted from his nose to the back of his head. He had no forehead. Maybe all babies come into the world looking like that but I don’t see them so soon after birth. The next memory I have of Lois is when I went to Fresno and stayed with her during summer vacation. Your father [Joe Sr] was interning then so she was alone most of the time. I rode down with Paul (Joe’s brother) and Ella. I remember when we got there Ella said, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” These are dumb things to remember but they certainly had a lasting impression on me. Lois and I ate a lot of bread and milk that summer. She taught me that by toasting the bread, it tasted better. We went for walks and just visited. There wasn’t any money to do anything else. I guess things started looking better when Gee Gee [Charlene Rae Edmunds] was born because I went down on a bus to help when Lois was in the hospital. I was so glad when she came home so that she could give me instructions on how and what to cook. With her help I could take care of the family pretty well. She even taught me how to hang sheets on the line. I remember Joanne [Lois Joanne Edmunds] as a cute, chubby baby. I said to Lois, “Her legs are so fat that she can’t get her feet together.” I tried to do it but didn’t have any luck. Lois just sat there beaming because she had such a darling little girl. When I fed Joanne in the highchair she was so neat. If a little bit of food got on her mouth, she licked it off immediately. Later, when I fed Gee Gee, she opened her mouth so wide I could have put the whole bowl in. I think of Lois as just being there – solid, quiet, and always thinking of others. She seemed to be very happy and proud of her family. One experience I remember very vividly was when I went down at the time Diane [Diane Elaine Edmunds] was born. We were both sitting outside and Gee Gee came over to tell us something. She was so excited and enthused, and her eyes just sparkled. After she went back to play Lois just said, “Isn’t she cute?” You could just feel the love she had for each one of you. She had a special love for her family. I always felt welcome and your folks did everything they could for me. I remember them asking me where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do. I think of Lois analyzing a situation and just quietly taking care of everyone’s needs. Her contribution to life was to make everyone around her happy. I appreciate the example she set for me. I always wanted to be a mother like her. The last picture I have of Lois is when they returned from their mission. We were up to Mark (brother of Lois) and Raili’s and Lois came from the kitchen into the living room. She had on a white dress with navy blue polka dots. That was the time that Everett [Ruth’s husband] saw her special spirit (he saw her all dressed in white and realized that her time on the earth was very short) and I guess that was the last time I saw her alive.

Ella Mary Middleton was 31 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. 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.
