Lena Roberts

Contributor: Boeuf Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Lena Roberts Bartholomew My father and mother, Samuel Thomas and Eliza Jane (Jennie) Taylor Roberts, were living at Cedarview, Duchesne County, Utah, at the time of my birth, on Oct. 3, 1920. Since the family had a very close friend, Lena Laranger, they decided I should be her namesake, so they gave me the name of Lena. When I was only five months old our family moved to Rains, Carbon County, Utah, where dad could find gainful employment. Just about a year before my birth dad had received his honorable discharge from the army after serving for 21 months during World War I; he was in France most of the time. When he returned to the farm it was impossible to make ends meet and many were going to greener pastures at the coal mines in Utah. While living at Mutual Coal Camp, west of Rains, the third girl, Betty Rhae was born on the 28th of September, 1926. My first six months of school was at Rains, and then because of mother’s ill health we moved to Price, where we lived until early in March, 1929, when we returned to Cedarview because dad had suffered a serious injury in an accident in the machine shop at the coal camp. I finished my third grade and completed fourth in a little one-room schoolhouse where our teacher, Miss Waters, taught six grades. It was easy to memorize all the poems; reading was also a snap, but the “times tables” had to drilled at home each night by a coal oil lamp. During the summer of 1930, we moved to a town of Neola which is located 10 miles north of Cedarview. My next four years of schooling were at Neola and this was very enjoyable because I gained there so many dear and lasting friends. We moved to Springville, in Utah County, in the fall of 1934, where I completed high school, graduating in May, 1938. I married Elden Bartholomew Feb. 17, 1939, in the Salt Lake Temple. We had met at my Aunt Almira Johnson’s home while I was there on a vacation the summer before our family moved to this area. Elden and I were always paired off at neighborhood parties and we enjoyed each other’s company but it wasn’t until after he returned from a summer’s work in Wyoming that we discovered our feelings for each other were “true love.” We have lived in Springville most of our married life with the exception of about four months when my husband was employed on a dairy farm at Richmond, Utah. Elden received his “Greetings” from Uncle Sam on Dec. 24, 1943, while we were living on Seventh So. and Seventh East in Springville. He left for service in the Navy which lasted for almost two years during World War II. At this time our family consisted of our baby girl, Anna Lee, who was born Oct. 25, 1939; Sheldon Roberts, born Dec. 19, 1941; and Michael Allen, who was born April 21, 1943. After Elden’s return from the Navy he worked for my dad in his custom slaughterhouse business. We bought this business in Feb. of 1950, and moved to a farm at the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon which has been our home since that time. Our third son, Darrell Thomas, was born Dec. 24, 1947, and was two and one-half years old when we made this move; and our last child, a fourth son, Steven, was born Dec. 19, 1952, after our move to the ranch. All of our family has learned the blessing of work on our farm. We now have a precious posterity which consists of five children, one son-in-law, four daughters-in-law, 31 grandchildren and one great- granddaughter. We also have one of our grandsons, Gregory Elden Bartholomew, serving in Italy Catania-Sicily Mission, and another Howard Chamberlain, who is called to the Argentina Cardoba Mission. All of our family has are active in church callings and are in good health. I have served in the church doing many things which have included: Sunday School Teacher, Primary president; Primary Chorister, Primary teacher, spending 18 years of 28 with the Primary Scouting Program; Jr. Sunday School chorister, and coordinator both in the ward and stake; Stake Bluebird leader; Relief Society President; an 18 month mission at the Visitors Center in Cardston, Alberta, Canada, with my eternal companion; and at the present time I have a weekly assignment as a genealogy consultant at the Utah Valley Branch Library at BYU. I am also the Compassionate Service leader in Relief Society and a visiting teacher in which position I have served for more than thirty years. I am deeply grateful for my testimony that our Heavenly Father lives, that his Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, lives and loves me, and that I am blest in all things.

Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 43 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
