Ira Clifton Anderson life story written in 1997 by his children

Contributor: katyasmith Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Ira Clifton Anderson was born Dec 3, 1905 in Union, Salt Lake county, UT to Louis and Harriett Cole Anderson. Ira had five sisters; Luella, Ina, Mary, Carrie and Laurel and three brothers; Frances, Ray and Glen. Ira was baptized and confirmed a member of the LDS church on Aug 6, 1916. His parents had a small farm and Ira helped out and went to school in Union. He developed a love for growing vegetables and flowers that lasted his through his life. When he was a young man, he made a trip to California to work in a nursery and learn about plants. He told his family that on the train coming home he rested his head on a window sill and fell asleep. As a result, his face was paralyzed for quite a while. When he returned home from California he sought employment at Purity Biscuit C. and was hired as a baker. He married Irene Isabelle Archer on April 7, 1926. They moved to Magna where he worked at Kennecott Copper Mine. He lost his job during the depression and moved back to Salt Lake City, Utah. He was a hard worker and always made sure his family had food on the table. He loved to fly fish, play cards, enjoy a few beers, bowl, sing and tap dance. His cronies during his life were Dean Salt, Stan Roberts, Bill Gordon, Bill Allen, Mr. Bush and his brother, Glenn Ira loved company and often surprised Irene with dinner guests. He, Uncle John and Uncle Leroy where the three musketeers-enjoying a jigger or two and smoking a big box of cigars. The only time Ira smoked was with them on Thanksgiving and Christmas. He loved visits from little Hanna and Uncle Claude (he took them to dinner), Aunt Leone (she loved his breads and fruit cakes) and Aunt Hilda and Uncle Ralph. No one enjoyed the holidays more than Ira. He and Uncle Leroy loved to take all the kids to the 24th of July Parade-the boys spent time visiting the pubs. The day before Thanksgiving, he would show up with a fresh killed turkey. The kids would help him burn the feathers off and then he would clean it. The next morning, Irene made the dressing, stuffed “Ol Tom” and Ira would put it in the oven and take care of it the rest of the day. Irene was a good cook and the family feasted and had a fine time. Christmas was another story. Irene would save all her old nylons for the kids. They would put a name tag on their stocking and hang it on a door knob, a chair or a bed post. They didn’t have a fireplace-just a black pot belly stove. Late in the night the kids would hear a lot of noise-nuts and candy that missed the socks, falling on the floor. For most of them, the candy, nuts, apples, oranges and bananas were the most fun at Christmas. Ira and Stan Nelson (his son-in-law) were pals and took fishing trips, watched football games and bowled together for Continental Bakery. Ira worked for Continental Bakery for 20 years or more and to make ends meet, he also painted houses, businesses and the church. He was a good painter and was always willing to help others. Soon after his retirement, he became crippled with rheumatoid arthritis and suffered high blood pressure. He has a series of strokes and pneumonia and passed away on April 7, 1973, their wedding anniversary. Ira told Elaine he loved Irene and he was proud of all his kids and knew they would take care of themselves. Until we meet again, Love from your children 1997

Life timeline of Ira C Anderson

Ira C Anderson was born in 1905
Ira C Anderson was 9 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Ira C Anderson was 15 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Ira C Anderson was 34 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
Ira C Anderson was 40 years old when World War II: Nagasaki is devastated when an atomic bomb, Fat Man, is dropped by the United States B-29 Bockscar. Thirty-five thousand people are killed outright, including 23,200-28,200 Japanese war workers, 2,000 Korean forced workers, and 150 Japanese soldiers. Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.
Ira C Anderson was 48 years old when Jonas Salk announced the successful test of his polio vaccine on a small group of adults and children (vaccination pictured). Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. 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.
Ira C Anderson was 64 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. 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.
