This is a history of my husband as I remember it. Joseph William Peterson was born April 20, 1887 at Plain City, Utah. When a boy of eight years his parents moved to Idaho and settled on a 160 acre farm in Thomas, Idaho. At that time it was not required by law to go to school so he did not get much education only the hard way. He was taught to work hard and keep track of his earnings and in this way he became good in arithmetic. He did his figuring in his head. In measuring hay he could get the answer before you could put it down on paper and his answer was usually correct. But while he was yet young he was good with horses.
His father moved on a place where there was no water and they had to make canals to carry the water to the farms. He took his team, and we called them slip-scrapers and worked on what is now known as the American Falls Canal. He worked winter and summer just coming home weekends until the job was completed to Springfield. This country was all desert at that time, and many times the men would turn their scrapers over and find a rattlesnake curled up under it. They soon got used to it and it did not bother them, since they wore rubber boots and rubber gloves. He was also a good rider and there were wild horses on the desert and all you needed to do was catch one, if you could, and it was your horse. So he and his friends spent much time catching wild horses. Sometimes the horses were so mean, as soon as you got a rope on them they would turn on you and come after you with mad wide-open mouths. Then the riding pony had to outrun it, but they were trained to do just that.
This is about the time Joe and I were married and we settled down on a 40 acre farm, a piece of his father's place. We lived there and raised all our family. Just before our second baby was born, Joe became very ill. The doctor said he would not live, but they operated on him for peritonitis and appendicitis, and he eventually started to improve. When the baby came we were asked to call her Josie, after her father. The doctor said Joe would not have any more family, but he lived to be the father of ten lovely daughters and two fine sons. He loved children and when he knew he was going to have a new baby he always asked that it be twins.
He was a very good housekeeper, very neat and clean. At any time I was sick and needed help, he could take over. He was also good around the sick. At one time his mother and older sister were in bed six weeks with rheumatism, and he with the doctor coming once in a while was the only help they had, and he was also boarding a man school teacher.
For his enjoyment he chose hunting and fishing. So most of his Sundays were spent on the river bank. Almost every Monday morning we would have a fish breakfast. He liked them cleaned just his way, so he would clean the fish. He was a great man to keep plenty of chopped wood stored ahead. At the time wood was all we had to burn. So he spent a lot of time in the winter hauling wood from the Lavas and then sawing it by hand. So you see that ran into work. We had a Shetland Pony and a buggy to go to primary in. This caused much amusement and no end of trouble at times. Once I had the buggy loaded with friends and family, and I had to untie the horse when we were ready to go home. The horse turned sharply and threw one of the children out and the back wheel ran over her. Since it was just a small cart no harm was done and we returned home in safety.
A History of Our Family
By Phelma B. Peterson Wood
Joseph William Peterson was born April 20, 1887 in Plain City, Utah. He was the son of Hans Peterson and Sarah Ann Mariah Wheeler. When a boy of eight his parents moved to Idaho for his fathers health and settled on a 160 acre tract of land west of Blackfoot. It was all sagebrush-covered and required all the combined efforts of the family to convert it in to the home they desired. Roads, ditches for irrigation, and all improvements had to be built. While he was yet small he became good with horses and when the American Canal system was begun he took his team and scraper to work. He worked winter and summer, coming home weekends until the job was finished. The country was dry and desolate, and many times as they would start work they would find rattlesnakes curled up in their scrapers. They were all dressed for such things and no harm came to them.
When he married Sarah Elizabeth Palmer on March 18, 1908, the family gave them the northeast corner for their farm. He was a very hard working man and provided well for his family.
Just before the second baby was born, he became ill and the doctors said he would not live, but after his operation for peritonitis and appendicitis he began to improve. When the baby was born she was called Josie because they thought they could have no more children. He lived to become the father of ten daughters and two sons. He loved children and always took them with him whether at work or play.
At one time his mother and sister were in bed with inflammatory rheumatism for six weeks with only an occasional trip to the doctor to help him out. At that time a school teacher was boarding at their home and it left quite a family for him to take care of.
I recall one time when I must have been quite small, the whole community turned out for a rabbit drive. Since there were no fences, teams came from all directions and drove the rabbits ahead of them to a center pen where they were killed. The children thought it great sport to ride on the sleighs and hear the noise of the men and boys as they scared the rabbits. In this way they could keep the rabbits from over-running the country and causing so much damage.
I have heard tell from father and mother how the wild horses used to come in from the desert in the winter for water. Since the Peterson well was the closest, they came here. Many men tried to catch them. After they were filled with water they would soon become winded and the men could rope them. Whoever caught and broke them was the owner. Many fine horses were added to the herds this way.
Our fuel was obtained from the Lavas, where cedar trees grew for the trouble of chopping. However, the trip was long and tiresome for both men and horses. Provisions for at least three days had to be taken along with tent, axe, hay for the horses, and camp equipment. The roads were over deep cracks in the lava flows and several accidents have occurred here, which always made us doubly glad when we could see the teams come up the hill and we could run meet father and ride the rest of the way home with him.
He loved to farm and would work all day long in the field and burn weeds on the ditches long after dark. Sugar beets were a specialty for him, and he usually was the first team up on the dump and the last one at night.
Mother and children did all we could to help in the field, cultivating potatoes, weeding beets, raking and mowing hay, and hand-piling the hay.
The last years of his life were spent as a victim of neuritis. He became unable to work, a fact that bothered him greatly. His greatest pleasure lay in the visits of his children and their families. He passed away August 21, 1944 at his home in Thomas, and he was buried in the Thomas-Riverside Cemetery. In the family plot were a 12 year-old daughter Genevieve; Margaret Ann, who died at birth; Bertha Irene, who died at one month old; Gladys Ione, who died as a six week old. All of them preceded him in death.
Genevieve had been a great favorite of his and her long illness and death as a result of stomach cancer had been as hard for him to face as any problem he had ever had. She was about twelve years old when she was called home.

My father owned and operated a sawmill. He and mother worked at the mill during the summer and usually came down from the hills for the winter. The winter I was born in 1889, father came down to the valley to find a home for us. He located a place in Downey. We packed and was ready to go, reaching the house that night. Two days later, on December 12, I was born. My grandmother and grandfather were living with us at the time and so Grandmother took care of mother during her illness. The house was so cold I heard it said the wash cloth would freeze to the doorknob while dressing me after a bath.
All my younger life was spent at the sawmill. I started school at seven. We would drive a team 10 miles and back at night. My older brother Henry, would care for the horses.
In the summer we all worked. Father owned a small band of sheep which the younger children had to herd. One day my sister and I went with the sheep at six o'clock in the morning and took our lunch so we could stay all day. While we weren't around the sheep, some dogs came and ate our lunch. We were plenty hungry when night time came.
As we grew older we had to spend more time in school. Father bought a farm in Thomas where we spent the rest of our life. We built a large nine-room home. We kids nailed the lath on while father did the other work. When the house was finished we made good use of it socially as well. I had two older brothers, Henry and James and three sisters, Mary, Nancy, and Ada.
We would walk especially to primary. Later they built a school house in Thomas, and that was only a half mile from our home; but the winters were hard with lots of snow. The snow was crusted so hard we could just walk on the top and not break through. I would like to say Father sawed and hauled the lumber 30 miles from the Bannock Mill to build the home. Several homes were built from his mill. Among them were the J. R. Williams home and others. Our home was a large house with seven rooms. It had a large front room and as there was not much entertainment for us, we found our own recreation. Mother was a good sport and went along with us in our fun. Most of the young people called her mother.
In 1908 Joe and I were married and lived the first year with his folks. Then, the second year Grandpa and the boys built us a house on the corner of his place. It was a two-room house and 40 acres of land. He worked several years with his father. We did not have conveniences then like we have today. There were no telephones any further out than Riverside. Then, in 1913 we got the phone, and soon after that we got electricity; but before that time we washed on the scrubbing board, ironed with a stove iron with coal oil lamps for light. We had board floors to scrub and no mattresses to sleep on. In the fall when we thrashed we would fill a bed-tick with fresh straw that was our bed. If we were lucky enough to have a rag carpet we would put straw under it for padding.
After our marriage there was a period of time I just drifted along until I had three small girls old enough to go to primary. I lived one mile from the church. We did not have a car, so I bought a baby carriage that was large enough to hold two children, and the older child could walk that distance. That way I went to Sunday School in the morning and afternoon meeting at 2 o'clock, and primary on Friday. I never missed many meetings unless someone was sick. Then, about the year 1915, we bought our first car. After that it seemed easier to make a living and we had a brighter look on life. Then, in 1918 there was a flu epidemic, which took many lives. I had a three-week old baby, Joseph Bazil, and I took the flu and almost lost my life and baby. My sister Mary came in and took care of us. There was myself, my husband and four children: Josie, Sarah Genevieve, Martha, and Phelma. All were sick at the same time. She was very patient and took good care of us, and we were soon well.
I would like to tell a little incident that happened to me at this time. I was lying in bed with my face to the wall and a tall man with gray hair came to my bed and looked over me and said, "What are you doing?" I said, "Nothing." He said, "Don't you go to Sunday School or Relief Society." I turned over to see who was talking to me, and he left the room. Since that time I have felt I should do whatever the church ask me to do, I have been a teacher in Sunday School, and counselor in primary, and a visiting teacher in Relief Society for years.
Then in 1930 Grandpa Peterson took sick, and as he was living alone since Grandma's death, Joe and I sold our home and moved over with him. About one year after that he died, leaving Joe the worries of the place. It was only another year or so until Joe was stricken with arthritis, and he was sick so long we were compelled to sell our place and then we bought a home on a town site in Thomas. Not long after that Joe passed away, and I soon sold again and bought a home in Blackfoot.
I would like to mention music. I have always been a lover of music either in dance or song I especially like the words in song. Each song is a sermon, and if at anytime I feel blue, as we all have them days, I can just sing or hum a tune and it will drive the blues away. I can hear my girls say, "Mother is going to wash. Listen at her sing."
We belonged to the Riverside Ward, and used to go to Sunday School and primary on horses most of the time. We older girls organized a sewing club, where we went from house to house sewing carpet rags. I took an active part in mutual and Sunday School until after I married. Quite often after and during the preliminary programs in Mutual, Mary and I were called on to sing. For years I have served as a visiting teacher in the Relief Society.
After my marriage to Joseph W. Peterson, we moved to our home one mile north of the Thomas Store, where we spent most of our married life. I began to teach Primary where I've taught so many years since.
Joseph and Sarah's Children
Josie and John Browne
John and Josie met at Thomas, Idaho, where Dad was working in road construction. He was working at a gravel pit at Grandpa Peterson's farm. This is where he met Josie Peterson who had to deliver a message to Grandpa Joseph Peterson. They were married in Pocatello and lived on a 40 acre farm which Dad and his father worked very hard to reclaim from the desert. Later, another 40 acres was added to this farm. He worked hard and long hours in clearing the fields and helping to set up the irrigation system. Their first home was a small two-room house which was later replaced by a four-room basement home. It was here that all the children were born—most of them at home. There were six sons and one daughter: Melvin, Agnes, Alton, Jack, Gayle, Jerry, and Earl.
An additional farm was later purchased which was down towards Pingree and bordering on the desert. Again, there was some very hard work involved in clearing rocks, burning sagebrush, working the fields and setting up an irrigation system. As was the system at the time, most of the work was done by family members, husband, wife, and children.
Dad loved farm animals. They always had dairy cows that needed to be milked, morning and night, seven days a week. I personally remember when they had to milk the cows by hand. It had snowed so much one winter that the roads were blocked and the milk truck could not get in to pick up the cans of milk. There was nothing to do with the cans of milk except pour them out. Life was hard back then. He also had work horses and saddle horses of which he was very proud. He was often asked to enter them in the parades at Blackfoot.
About 1952 warmer weather enticed them to move to the Emmett, Idaho, area of western Idaho. They purchased a farm up on the Emmett bench. This is where the younger members of the family grew up and thus it was really "home" to them. When they retired they purchased a home in the township of Letha and spent many years there. They thoroughly enjoyed taking rides up into the mountains and going fishing and hunting. They had many wonderful memories of trips with Jerry and especially of going to Canada. Dad eventually lost his eyesight and was blind for several years. He died in 1981 and was buried at the Emmett Cemetery. Alton died of a massive heart attack in 1987 two years after having complex heart surgery. Gayle died in 2007 and Melvin (Joseph) died in 2013.
After Dad's death, Mom moved to a senior complex apartment in Emmett where she lived for many years. About 1991 she moved to Woodland, California to be near her daughter. She made several trips to Emmett to visit, and did quite a bit of traveling with family members. She also took her first airplane ride to Idaho. She didn't really care for that.
In 1999 she moved back to Boise, Idaho, and lived there for several years. As her health deteriorated, she lived in a nursing home in Boise. She enjoyed living in the different areas, but was always so happy to get back to Idaho.
She passed away December 17, 2005 at Boise, Idaho and was buried at Emmett, Idaho.
Martha and David Dance
We were all born at the family home in Thomas, Idaho, lived on the 40 acres on the corner of Grandpa Peterson's farm. After Grandmother Peterson passed away, we moved in with him.
We went to primary regularly in the old rock church in Thomas. Mother was a Councilor in the primary and very faithful in carrying out her duties.
The farm next to Grandpa Peterson's was the Dance Family's. Theron, called "Rusty" because of his red hair, and I dated while he finished Ricks College. His parents Philip B. and Celia W. Dance took us through the Salt Lake Temple when we were married. We came home for our reception and dance at the Thomas Church.
Theron raised sugar beets and milk cows. We had a team of horses and borrowed enough money to buy a harness. He worked with his dad and saved enough money to buy the farm we now live on.
Theron served on the school board and in the Idaho Legislature. We served in the Idaho Falls Temple then a mission in Nashville, Tennessee. After Theron died I served a mission in San Diego, California.
Marva attended BYU and married Gaelard Jensen, who was in the Air Force where they spent their first years. Gaelard set up his flying service from home. Marva began teaching music in the schools. After Gaelard's death, she served a mission in the BYU Hawaii School of Music.
David served a mission in Indiana. He married Dianne Wheeler in the Idaho Falls Temple and began farming. As the family grew they built a new home on their Pingree farm where they live. He began driving truck, which lasted more than 20 years.
Galen graduated and then married Myrna Elaine Ellis in the Idaho Falls Temple. They lived and worked in the area until 1967, then moved to Wendell, Idaho where they raised and educated their family. Galen served in the Wendell Ward bishopric and the high council.
Celia graduated from BYU and married Merlin Gary Hill in the Idaho Falls Temple. They moved to Idaho Falls where she taught school. Celia taught in the schools and church, and helped many families. She died from a brain hemorrhage.

Diane also went to BYU. She married Gary Walker in the Idaho Falls Temple, and they moved to Whittier, California, then Logan, Utah to finish their degrees. Lake Havasu, Arizona is where the family calls home. After their divorce, Diane moved the family to Idaho, where she met Art Jones. They are happily married in New Mexico.
Phelma and Owen Wood
I found work after graduation in Blackfoot, where I met and married Owen Merrell Wood. We started farming with a team of horses and rarely used machinery. We had 120 acres of land with our name on the contract, and a three room lava rock home.
Owen always wanted to farm and has known the meaning of hard work! As the family grew we have tried to help out as much as possible. We worked as a family to make work enjoyable by setting goals like a swim party, picnic, or short trips after a job was finished. When our children numbered five we took our family to the temple to be sealed as a family forever.
The first big trouble came during the winter of 1949. Beverly was born January 1st, and to get Mom to the hospital and then home Dad followed the snow plows.
The last of January, Sheryl, our second daughter, was diagnosed with Bulbar polio. She was in the hospital in Pocatello. Owen was able to be with her most of the time because of the help of his brother LaVar and Uncle Charlie. It was certainly a time for fasting and prayer. The doctors gave her a one-in-three chance for recovery. She recovered wonderfully thanks to the goodness of our Heavenly Father.
Our life changed with our Shetland Ponies—Spurs, Topsy, Trixie—who became our best friends. We watched as all our kids and many grandkids learned to ride and were cared for by the horses.
Things went along fine until Owen Woodrow "Woody" our first son passed away from leukemia. This was a test for us as a family—a tie we have in heaven. We have served 15 years in the temple, as well as many callings of service, from scouting to Relief Society, and all in between.
Jean went to beauty school in Idaho Falls, and married Eli L. Krommenhoek. We made our home in Idaho Falls where I opened my shop. After our second son was born, we moved to Pocatello, and later to Boise. We are still here, where we raised our family.
Sheryl attended Ricks College and then worked at Idaho Falls Atomic Energy Commission where she met John Ybarguen. She received her LDS mission call to Finland. She got home to send John to VietNam. They were married after his return and lived in Idaho Falls and Riverside. John suffered a heart attack and is missed by all the family.
Etta May attended Ricks then served a mission to the East Central States, then to BYU nursing. She worked at the LDS Hospital, University of Utah Hospital and the VA hospital. She married Dale I. Eavenson, and they have a son and twin daughters. They are currently serving a mission.
Charles served in Hawaii on a mission, and then attended BYU. He decided his real love was farming. He married Jill Fielding and farmed out on the reservation, and then moved to Washington. They have four beautiful kids and were later divorced. He married Mary Taylor who had three sons. They have their home and farm in Pasco, Washington.
Beverly attended Ricks and graduated from BYU. She taught school at Pingree and Pocatello where she met and married Ivan Bullock. She went back to teaching in McCammon and taught for 29 years. She's been in church organizations from primary to Relief Society, and had many teaching positions. Ivan served as bishop and conducted 49 funerals. He taught at Idaho State University as coordinator of the Diesel Program for 19 years.
Gerry attended Ricks and graduated from BYU. She began teaching in Winslow, Arizona where she married Walt Harrah. He joined the Navy, so they traveled four years. They divorced and she returned to Blackfoot with her three kids. She began selling insurance and traveling, and she married Andy Herrera from California and has lived there since.
Jay attended Ricks, and then served a mission in Tempe, Arizona. He attended BYU and married Janece Moody. They moved to Washington to farm. In his words, "Life's good. We grew lots of different crops including a crop of five kids." They expanded farming and The Country Mercantile on the Pasco-Spokane Highway. Their second Country Mercantile is opening in Richland soon. They just finished a mission at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City.
Myra and Joseph Peterson
Joseph Basil Peterson was born on December 4, 1918. He was the first son of Joseph William and Sarah Elizabeth Palmer Peterson in Thomas, Idaho. He grew up on the farm learning the values of family togetherness in work and play. He attended Rockford Elementary and graduated from Thomas High School.
His grandparents Hans and Sarah had given their sons Joseph William and Basil Hyrum a portion of the Peterson homestead. They learned to work together in both family planting and harvest teams.
Joseph B. married Myra Olney and they made their home in Idaho Falls in 1945. She was divorced with two children—David Gene and Francis Carol Walters. They raised David as their son while Francis Carol was raised by her father. Soon they prepared to welcome a son, Larry Keith, who passed away same day of his birth in 1946. Jo Ann was born in 1953 and was named after her dad to complete the family. Joe was working as a truck driver and enjoyed being on the road with Challenge Creamery, Bairs, and Cowboy Oil. We lived in Hagerman, Idaho and traveled to keep in touch with family every chance we had. After they retired they moved back to Idaho Falls to be near family.
David Gene Walters settled in Idaho Falls and worked at the Atomic Energy Site and owns Uniglobe Magestic Travel Inc. So if he is not working he is somewhere flying airplanes. He married Tanis Redford and they had a son, David James. They later divorced.
Francis Carol Walters married Archibald Thomas Porter who was in the U.S. Navy. They had a son, Tracy, and twin girls, Elaine and Annetta. Later they divorced. She then married Richard McCarthy and lives in Tennessee.
Jo Ann Peterson and Francis Willard Watson married in Idaho Falls, Idaho in 1971. They have Willard Joseph, Stephanie Ann and Richard Francis. They are a family who are loving and caring to each other and others. Watching their grandchildren grow up made them proud. In her words: "Our ancestors led us to this life with the path to follow. I hope we are making them proud."
Francis was also a truck driver so they lived in many areas as needs were met. They lived in Salt Lake, West Valley, and Kearns, Utah. Then, after retiring they made their move back to Idaho Falls to be near family. Soon after they returned, her parents Joseph and Myra returned to the Idaho Falls area also.
Cleo and Jonathan Webb
Cleo Peterson was born March 16, 1921 in Thomas, Idaho. She met her childhood sweetheart, Jonathan Browning Webb, in the fourth grade while attending school in Thomas and Rockford. She married the love of her life May 5, 1939 and remained faithful to that man for 76 years.
Jonathan served in the U.S. Army and after his service they bought a farm. This took lots of backbreaking work to make it like it is today. They raised sugar beets, hay, grain, potatoes, and cattle. In 1961 they purchased their mountain retreat near Bone, Idaho and Wolverine Mountain. This has been a haven for the family and friends. Sitting next to Mom at a wrestling match made you feel you were about to be pinned yourself; elbows out and feet dancing she knew she was helping them win. She also enjoyed every stitch put into homemade quilts for grandkids. The children are listed below. Each of them graduated from Snake River High School. Their 50th wedding anniversary was celebrated on May 5, 1989.
Jonathan "Jony" LeRoy graduated and served in the U.S. Air Force. He married Dawn Darlene Nelson in 1965, and they had two children, Becky and Brian. Jony built his own electronics business and for years repaired everything in sight. After he divorced Dawn, he later married Iva Roth. He was killed in a accident at his home in 2003. He is still missed by his kids, grandkids, and family. He kept people laughing because of his jovial fun humor.
Joe Douglas excelled in wrestling while he was in high school. He won many titles. Joe then joined the U.S. Navy. He married Patricia June Bates after the military service, and their early life was on the farm. Their children were Jody, Jon, Julie, and Lucas. Both of the older boys followed his footsteps on the mat. Jody is still coaching the sport. Because of Joe's hay fever, they moved to the Boise area where they opened a daycare center in their home, bringing the farm to city kids in gardening and animals they helped care for. These last years found him traveling the countryside, delivering trailers for Katrina. Later he worked with his son Lucas doing reposession work. He passed away at home in 2012, and is missed by all who knew him.
Betty Webb Caldwell Volger was a true country girl, used to working hard and enjoying the country life. After graduation she married Dwight Caldwell, and to this union was born Debra Ann and Bob Lynn. They were later divorced. Soon she met and married the love of her life, Gerry L.Volger. He had three children: Lorie, Lisa, and Chris. They lived in Pingree, Idaho and both retired from the Bingham County in 2008. They now keep busy with a metal fabrication business. They love to spend time with their family camping and traveling. They are always searching for new places to visit.
Jack Webb was a full fledged farm boy. He loves the process of making things grow. He took over the family farm since Dad's death. He raises cattle with his wife Dorothy Ternus Webb, and help of their family of three kids, Sandra, Diana, and David, their spouses, and grandchildren. They have a ranch in the Sellar's Creek area of Bingham County, where all the family gather to to help others. It's not unusual to see at least one extra person in the truck when headed out, whether it be to town or work.
Darlene Webb after graduation became a secretarial office gal. Working for Kraft and later at Dr. Rhiem Jone's medical office. She was a farm girl who loved the farm, but city dwelling was more her style. She married John Copenhaver, and they had Ashli and Michael. Later they divorced and she married Peter John Maheres in 1988. His son is Johnny Maheres. Pete and Dee, as he called her, raised Appaloosa horses, and she participated in team penning with Pete. They were a happy couple with dreams of their own, but then tragedy came calling. Pete was attacked and killed by his stepson on March 4, 1994. Dee tried her best to survive the loss and repercussions, but failed. She committed suicide on July 21, 1994. She was a great mother, daughter, and sister. She is missed tremendously. Life will never be the same without her.
DeLila and Ralph Boyce
DeLila was born at home. She attended Rockford Elementary and Thomas High School. About that time, she met Ralph Boyce of Bradford, Arkansas, who had come to Idaho with the Civil Conservation Corps. He also was working for the Edward Webb family, and got to know Jonathan, who was her sister Cleo's husband.
Well, "Joff" and his brothers took Ralph on a deer hunting trip and while tracking some deer Ralph was accidentally shot in the leg. Because it was harvest and Cleo was preparing food for a large crew of farm help, she asked her sister DeLila to come help her take care of Ralph who was assigned to bed rest while his leg healed. She was great help and the story begins their life together as they were married in July of 1940.
They went back to Arkansas to meet Ralph's family, and their first son Virgil was born there. They came back to Idaho, found work and made their home in the Thomas area. They lived there for 25 years. While there they took their family of three girls and one boy to the Idaho Falls temple to be sealed together with Virgil who had died at birth. Later they opened a day-and-night laundry in Pocatello, where they lived for the next 14 years. They were able to retire in Riverside where they spent many hours serving in their ward and also the Idaho Falls Temple. During that time they were called to serve an LDS mission in Cannonball, North Dakota. DeLila and Ralph served their family in doing hours of research and temple work—enjoying their children always.
Irene was born in Blackfoot, Idaho and graduated from Snake River High. She met Orval Kenneth Taylor while at BYU, and they married and moved to his home in Neosho, Missouri. His family owned a pharmacy. They had a daughter Lori.
Marilyn was born in Blackfoot, Idaho and raised in Thomas. She was the third child of five born to Clara DeLila Peterson and Ralph Boyce.

Cal and Dila Peterson
Calvin Arnold Peterson and Dila Renee Gibbs married in the Idaho Falls Temple on January 20, 1948. They lived in Blackfoot, Idaho and were blessed with three children— Vicky Lynne, born November 2, 1948; Ross Calvin, born July 15, 1955; and Julie, born February 7, 1959.
Cal was born April 10, 1926 in Thomas, Idaho. He was the tenth of twelve children in the family. Cal loved sports and played softball and basketball on the school team. He graduated from Thomas High School, but before he could finish his senior year he was inducted into the armed forces. Cal served in the U.S. Army during World War II both in the Philippines and in Korea. At the end of the war, Cal returned stateside and he and Dila began to date regularly until their marriage in 1948.
Dila's parents were Tasman D. Gibbs and Lottie Ione Barnard. She had three brothers and one sister. She graduated from Moreland High School in May 1945. She also loved sports. Cal and Dila met at a high school basketball game at Moreland where Cal was doing his "stuff" with the Thomas team. He left for the army a couple of weeks later and Dila left for the LDS Business College in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 1, 1945 to continue her education. Cal and Dila started writing soon after. Dila graduated from business college and started a job in Pocatello, Idaho at the Idaho Refining Company. She was one of four people transferred to Salt Lake City when Phillips Petroleum Company bought out Idaho Refining Company.
Cal worked at the Atomic Energy Company site near Arco, Idaho as a security guard. He was given the opportunity to learn the electrical trade on the site and within a couple of years he was a journeyman electrician and worked on the first atomic submarine. Later, while working for the electrical union he was sent to Conrad, Montana, as a foreman on the missile sites. When the job was completed, they sent him to work in Washington state for Boeing. The year was October, 1966. He worked for Boeing for five months, and was then offered a partnership in an electrical business in Seattle, which he took. In June of 1967 the family moved to Renton, Washington.
Vicky, who had just graduated from Blackfoot High School, received a full scholarship offer from Utah State University where she started school in September, 1967. While there she met Steven Hammond of Oxen Hill, Maryland and in September of 1969 they were married in the Idaho Falls Temple. After graduating from college, Vicky's husband Steve joined the Air Force. He served all over the world in that capacity retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel after a 20-year career. Vicky went into a career of teaching music. They have 7 children and 21 grandchildren.
After school each day, Ross helped his dad in the electrical business. He graduated from Issaquah High School in June, 1973 and left for a year of school at BYU before serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Ross served in Canada Calgary Mission from October, 1974 to October, 1976, returning to BYU in January, 1977. Ross soon after returned to Bellevue, Washington where he continued to work for his dad and continue his schooling at the University of Washington in Seattle.
Julie graduated from Issaquah High School in June of 1977. She continued her education, leaving for BYU that fall. She continued for three and a half years before returning to Renton due to health problems. She went to work for Northwestern Bell for several years and now works as an office manager for Group Health of Seattle. She is an excellent pianist and has served for many years sharing her talents with many choirs and congregations.
Cal and Dila raised their family and served in the church faithfully in Renton, Washington for the next forty years, sinking deep roots in the Pacific Northwest. The family enjoyed many activities and outings in this beautiful area. Favorite pastimes were deep-sea fishing, visiting Lopez Island and other sea shores in the area. Visits to the mountains were always enjoyed. Dila retired from a long and eventful career as a bookkeeper and secretary in the late 1990s. Cal retired from the electrical business and passed away from congenital heart failure in October of 2005. After Cal's passing, Dila moved up to Lynnwood, Washington to be closer to her daughter Julie.
