Eva Jane Smith(unedited)

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

Mom was a good lady with a very strong tesimony of her Savior. I could sum her up that way and be almost finished because that was what she talked about in all of my memories. She did have a difficult time with depression I believe but was never diagnosed or took any medications. I believe maybe it was partly a lack of self-confidence. I remember playing on the kitchen floor with pan lids and lids to canning jars well she did dishes or cooked dinner. I also remember one time she had her visiting teachers in the living room when I was there and they asked if I was a good helper, she said no not really. It seems sad to me that these are the kinds of memories I have but I know she loves me and I love her, so I write them down for posterity. She always worried a lot about her children and grandchildren especially those who were in active or having troubles. I remember later when I was an adult with children she told me I have an experience with her parents when dad was serving in the military and she was working at the Army Depot in Ogden. She said she decided she just wanted to go home one weekend and so she went home unannounced went to the front door and as grandmother open the door to greet whoever was there she saw mom and said what are you doing here? Granddaddy steps to the door and said everything I'm glad you're here and gave her a hug. I I think mom always felt second-best to her sister, in her moms eyes. Although, mom and dad lived closer in proximity to grandmother and had her over a lot and take care of her after granddaddy died in 1973 of a heart attack, his third. She was alone for a lot of years and very bitter. Granddaddy Smith was a kind, caring, loving man. Grandmother developed Alzheimer's. She developed into a different person who didn't know us. Mom loved to sew clothes for us as we were growing up and doll clothes for us. She loved music and she loved dancing. She used to seeing her home all the old songs and dance around the kitchen. She did not like to be out in the hot sun or in the wind. She didn't like cats or dogs or snakes or bugs. Ha. But we did go camping once or twice and fishing a few times. I'm sure she did that out of duty. Siri top primary and was in relief society presidency's. I remember her saying when we were all grown, been there done that I've already served. That was an unsettling comment coming from my mom. But she did suffer from depression. She would yell in around sometimes and say she wanted to leave and pack her bags and get away. Are used to worry a lot about her leaving. But now I think back on it and I know she wouldn't if she was just venting her feelings. The protected Her in a lot more than we ever knew. When they served their mission in Hawaii, I think that was her happiest and highest point in her life. I know she had some difficulties. she had a miscarriage between when Caron and I were born. She never talked about it I don't know anything about it. I know she struggled with the problems that Caron and Steve had in their lives. Steve was A struggle for her because he didn't want to go to church. I think that was because of how he was treated by some and I'm not sure why else. I remember them having strong words and yelling at times. She always tried to cover up and tried to talk yourself into him being OK and being active but we knew he wasn't. He's married now for the second time and I think happy which is really good. Caron had a really difficult first merit and mom and dad were involved with her after that for quite a while. She's had a lot of hard things in her life and they were a part of the fallout for her. When mom had her problems after their car accident, into thousand nine, she was seeing hallucinations of little devils and evil spirits everywhere , 24 hours a day. That didn't tell us about it for quite a while. I don't know how long it went on before we knew. Then I tried to start helping him with doctor visits and getting her medications. She ended up on medications that made her just very docile and more in a vegetative state. That was the compromise. Either have her seeing evil spirits that are trying to burn her hair, still her shoes and clothes, drown her children in the lake, throw things at her and follow her around. They were seen by her on the top of the car, on top of light poles, on top of buildings, at the foot of her bed, in every room she was in anywhere. We worried that she would start physically fighting them in the middle of sacrament meeting. Because that's what she did. She would ball up her face and yell at them and tell them to get away and leave her alone and don't touch her family. It may sound funny but it was not. It was real to her and a living nightmare. So she ended up living The last of her months medicated. I know it didn't last forever but it seem like a very long time. I love her. And I am certain she is better now and understands more and is free from that.
