Her mother Oma and my mother Alta are sisters. She and I were childhood friends and cousins. It has been many years since I saw Mary and as we grew up our lives diverged and took us to different parts of the country. I learned of her passing from my other cousin Larry Coleman. I want to send you my love and say how sorry I am for your loss. Mary was just one year older than I. May Heavenly Father Bless you all in this sorrowful time. Your Cousin Gene Pontius. ~ Gene Pontius, Quesnel, British Columbia Contact Me ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ September 09, 2013 Terry & Rece So very sorry to hear about your mom. We will keep her and your family in our prayers. Hope you are doing well. May the perpetual light always shine on her. Take care. ~ Marti & Joe Whiteman, ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ September 08, 2013 Dear George and family, we were so very sorry to hear of Marilyn's death. I have thought of Mary often throughout the years and will always hold her memories dear. I was just thinking about her last week – too bad for me that I didn't sit down and write her – maybe not only would it have given her a little lift, but it would have made me feel a little better today. There are so many memories I have of my dear cousin, Mary, most recently was an email she sent to me simply stating: "Larry, I love you." In spite of her earthly trials, she was a wonderful and patient person who had a great sense of humor and very little complaint. Mary and I were about the same age – we were close growing up; she and her sisters often came to our farm in the “wilds of Idaho” as their summer vacations – a week or so with us and a week or so with Aunt Alta's family. I always enjoyed the time we had together – whether it was “tromping hay” or playing “Anni-I-Over” or “Mother, May I” with the others!” I have missed those special times with Mary. It seems when we grow older; we tend not to “let-down-our hair” as well and as much – along with tending to be a lot more busier with “grown-up things,” but those good, treasured memories live on forever in one's heart! So, I'll continue to remember those smiles and good times we had together. Hold tight to your own good, precious memories about your wife and mother – they'll certainly comfort and strengthen you get through this particularly hard time. Mary will want you to continue on living life supporting, and loving each other in her honor. May you and your family all be comforted in knowing Marilyn is in the loving arms of our Father-in-Heaven where “Eternal Chains” can't be broken! Sending our love and deepest sympathy, Larry and Charlotte Coleman P.S. Let's keep in touch through the years. I have lots of pictures -- a few I've uploaded in Oma's name on ********************, but have many more to do. I still have the final draft, as well as the cassette tape. I think I have Oma's handwritten history in my files, also. ( Larry Coleman, Santaquin, Utah ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ September 08, 2013 May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

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.
George Alexander Smith was 20 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
George Alexander Smith was 31 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.
George Alexander Smith was 37 years old when World War II: German forces in the west agree to an unconditional surrender. The German Instrument of Surrender ended World War II in Europe. The definitive text was signed in Karlshorst, Berlin, on the night of 8 May 1945 by representatives of the three armed services of the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (OKW) and the Allied Expeditionary Force together with the Supreme High Command of the Red Army, with further French and US representatives signing as witnesses.

Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. 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.
