Niels Fugal

Contributor: afoley Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Niels was born in 1885 in Pleasant Grove, Utah. His father, Andreas, died when Niels was only 8. His school teacher called him her little homemade boy because his mother made all his clothes (from carding and spinning the wool on) and knitted his stockings and his father made his shoes. One of his school teachers changed the Danish spelling of Fugl (which means "bird" in Danish) to Fugal. He was baptized at the age of 9. He graduated from 8th grade at the age of 17. That was the end of his formal schooling. He served a mission for the Church to Sweden, leaving just two months after his marriage. He was gone two years and 9 months. One winter he was sent up to the northern most part alone to preside over that conference. One girl described his preaching: "He don't stand back of the pulpit; he goes right down in the aisles and he preaches to them on both sides..." He wrote to Viola when she was discouraged, "If all goes well, these two years will soon pass by and both you and I will be glad that I came on a mission. When we meet each other, it will be the happiest reunion of our lives, so let us keep up courage and realize that it is a great blessing to both you and me that I have been called to go into the world to preach the Gospel." Melba was born while he was gone and after his mission, the second child in their family of eight children was Neil. They had 6 more: Avis, Edna, Lucille, Boyd, Joyce and Grant. Jens, Christian, and Niels, the three brothers, all lived on the same block where their parents lived. They had things in common, including a car. They divided things up in 1923. Niels served in the bishopric from 1922 to 1929. He taught Sunday School most of his adult life. He read a lot and was an outstanding scriptural authority. He loved to expound the gospel principles. Niels was about 5' 11" with dark hair and eyes. He had so many grandchildren he couldn't always greet them by name and would often pat a child on the head and say, "So it's you, is it." He was a member of the Pleasant Grove City Council from 1914 to 1949. He was a member of the Utah State Legislature in the House of Representatives in 1929 and 1930. He formed a company with his sons, the Niels Fugal Construction Company. They laid water and gas lines. Niels became very successful in his business. He was charitable and non-judging, a good example to his children. He was outgoing and loved to be in plays. He gave humorous readings, often with a Swedish accent. He was going to give one at a wedding reception the night he was hit by a drunk driver and killed. He and Viola had just celebrated their golden wedding anniversary that summer. He was president of the Alpine School Board at the time of his death and school was dismissed for his funeral.

Viola Young Fugal

Contributor: afoley Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Viola was born in 1888 in Spanish Fork, Utah to Leroy Young and Louisa Ellis Adamson. Her mother died when she was four. She was baptized in the canal about a mile from their home in Hinckley. She and her sister Esther attended Brigham Young Academy. Her father and stepmother moved to Pleasant Grove and the girls would go home on weekends, so that's when she met Niels Fugal. When she was 20 she married Niels Fugal in the Salt Lake Temple. They had eight children--five girls and three boys. Viola was a good cook. She made the best lemon pie and a nut cake with brown sugar icing. She always had sugar cookies with a hole in the middle for the grandchildren. She didn't mind Niels' books and papers stacked on her dining room table. She had a cute sense of humor. She liked to knit and sew and quilt. She was modest, quiet and reserved. She would take the time to listen to grandchildren, but wouldn't give them advice. She was modest and quiet and reserved. She was short and plump, with dark sparkling eyes. She always wore a dress with an apron over it. Each Christmas she would pick our clothes or something for their hope chest for each grandchild (and she had a lot of them!) She would take time to sit down and listen to her grandchildren, but would never give them advice. She enjoyed traveling with her husband and they toured much of the United States, including Hawaii, and Europe. She was unpretentious and liked her home better than any other place. When Niels was killed by a drunk driver on the way to give a reading at a wedding, the young people whose wedding reception he was headed for when he was hit, came to offer their condolences the next day. She consoled them instead and told them she had faith she would be with him again in the eternities. She died in 1965 at the age of 78 after almost seven years of widowhood.

Patriarchal Blessing

Contributor: afoley Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

When I was a teenager Grandpa was the stake patriarch in the Grove Creek Stake in PG. I was able to receive my blessing from him. It was such a cool experience. When we came for the blessing the Grandma and Grandpas home was immaculate they had had some church music playing. I still remember the feeling of those great big hands (Grandpa's hands could wrap all the way around mine when we shook hands.) on my head they seemed to go from my forehead all the way to the back of my head. it was an awesome blessing. Grandma was serving as the recorder and was the one to type up the blessings after Grandpa gave them. As Grandpa was finishing my blessing I had a thought "He didn't say anything about marriage." That was something I had been praying about to have some direction in my blessing. Just as that thought came to my mind, Grandpa paused in giving the blessing. After a brief moment he gave me two paragraphs about my future wife and family. I am so grateful for a grandfather that was that in tune to the spirit. I kind of assumed back then that I got the VIP treatment because he was my grandpa. As I have grown up it has been so much fun for me to learn about friends who received their blessings from Grandpa. They share stories very similar to mine. The other day a sister in our stake asked me. "Is your Grandpa Grant Kay Fugal." I said yes and asked how she knew him. She said that he had given her her patriarchal blessing. She said, "I think he had the biggest hands ever." She said how amazed she was that she could feel so much love from this man that she hardly know and what a great experience it was for her. I, like many others, am so grateful for that blessing and for the way Grandma and Grandpa prepared for giving those blessings. It is so cool to me that at the bottom of my blessing it says Grant K. Fugal.

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.
