written by her mother - 1960 God knew where a sweet little baby girl would be welcome when He sent Gwen to the home of Omer Harps Reid and Cecil Prince. Their first baby was anticipated with love and expectation. With many hours of fine stitches of embroidery, yards of hand made lace, tatting, and crocheting. Hours of sewing to make dresses with slips to match and a flannel slip underneath. Gwen was born January 15, 1930, at home with a doctor and nurse in attendance. She came into the world after a long nights struggle which was soon forgotten in the pleasure of a new born baby to love and care for. Never was one spirit welcomed with more joy and devotion into a home than was Gwen on that cold January morn of 1930. Gwen had the cutest little outfits as a baby and small girl. Always a happy, quick little tike. She was a joy to not only her parents but her aunties as well, who helped to keep her in cute little clothes. She was especially quick to learn and use to say poems at an early age in public assemblies. She went to a Presbyterian Kindergarten conducted by two ladies from the Presbyterian Church who were school teachers. She learned to play and socialize with those her age (five years.) Later she went to the Public Grade Schools at Panguitch. Gwen was a good student and always loved school and its activities, taking part in drama and dancing. She took tap dancing lessons and loved the dance. At ten years of age, she took her first trip to California, going for two weeks with Aunt Reta to San Diego and returning alone on the bus. Aunt Grace met her in Cedar City and enjoyed hearing her report of her trip. It stood out in her mind as one of the events of childhood. After the family moved to Springville, Gwen continued her education until she was stricken with rheumatic fever in the midst of many school and church activities. She was literally laid low with a treacherous disease. She was heartbroken to have to remain in bed but soon rallied and by studying at home, graduated with her class from Junior High (Gwen says sophomore year in High School). Later during her second year of college, she had a reoccurrence of this sneaky disease causing her sorrow and sadness as well as pain for again her studies were interrupted and she was not able to continue on because of the many steps to climb and too much activity for one who had been so ill. But because of her rest and good care, she was not left seriously impaired and suffered only a slight heart murmur. During High School, she worked as an Usher, then ticket seller at a theatre in Springville. Later she clerked after school in Friel’s Furniture Store. After her second bout with rheumatic fever and when her health permitted she obtained a job as a secretary at Geneva Steel Company at Provo whe
