my friend, LaVon

Contributor: tad12345 Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

LaVon moved to Utah, from her home in Hillspring, Alberta, Canada when we were both about 13. She was a dear friend to me ever after and I miss her even now these many years since she has gone. We spent almost every moment together making taffy on Sunday evenings, sleeping over at each other's homes, going to church and school together, wearing each other's clothes, even dating boys who were best friends from Sprinville during High School. I loved her family and always felt welcome in their home. At first her family moved into the old Black home across the highway from us on Springville Road in Provo. Later, they bought a nice home on the South side of 900 South and about 800 East, across from the Provo Cemetery. When we were 16 years old I joined their family vacation to see their friends and family in Hillspring, Cardston, and Lethbridge, Alberta. We spent a day at the Waterton National Park on our way. That was a wonderful experience for me and I don't remember paying my way at all. I hope my mother sent money to help out, but I don't remember it. It was a huge kindness of them to include me. I still have a small fruit knife as a remembrance of the trip. We also bought special McIntosh carmel candy which is long gone. I was LaVon's maid-of-honor at her wedding and my now husband Roger was Jerry's Best Man. LaVon's mother, Anne, made all the dresses for us. She was an expert seamstress. We spent many hours together as married couples playing games and eating with each other. I only remember going to their homes, not them coming to our place. I hope I did my part as hostess. Roger and I moved to Brigham, City in 1962 and we did not see LaVon and Jerry as often, but when we did it was like old times. So many memories of good times with wonderful friends. Nancy and Roger Nielson

Lena Allred (LaVon) was 18 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
