Lena Roberts

Contributor: Boeuf Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years 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.

Life timeline of Lena Bartholomew (Roberts)

Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was born on 3 Oct 1920
Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 10 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 21 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 35 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California. The Disneyland Hotel is a resort hotel located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, owned by the Walt Disney Company and operated through its Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products division. Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 43 years old when John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas; hours later, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in aboard Air Force One as the 36th President of the United States. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. He served at the height of the Cold War, and the majority of his presidency dealt with managing relations with the Soviet Union. As a member of the Democratic Party, Kennedy represented the state of Massachusetts in the United States House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate prior to becoming president.
Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 53 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 61 years old when The first launch of a Space Shuttle (Columbia) takes place: The STS-1 mission. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Space Shuttle program. Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. In addition to the prototype whose completion was cancelled, five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Operational missions launched numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST); conducted science experiments in orbit; and participated in construction and servicing of the International Space Station. The Shuttle fleet's total mission time was 1322 days, 19 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds.
1999
Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 79 years old when Columbine High School massacre: Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 people and injured 24 others before committing suicide at Columbine High School in Columbine, Colorado. The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting that occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County, Colorado, United States, in the Denver metropolitan area. In addition to the shootings, the complex and highly planned attack involved a fire bomb to divert firefighters, propane tanks converted to bombs placed in the cafeteria, 99 explosive devices, and car bombs. The perpetrators, senior students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and one teacher. They injured 21 additional people, and three more were injured while attempting to escape the school. The pair subsequently committed suicide.
Lena Bartholomew (Roberts) was 83 years old when Invasion of Iraq: In the early hours of the morning, the United States and three other countries (the UK, Australia and Poland) begin military operations in Iraq. The 2003 invasion of Iraq was the first stage of the Iraq War. The invasion phase began on 20 March 2003 and lasted just over one month, including 21 days of major combat operations, in which a combined force of troops from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland invaded Iraq. This early stage of the war formally ended on 1 May 2003 when U.S. President George W. Bush declared the "end of major combat operations", after which the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) was established as the first of several successive transitional governments leading up to the first Iraqi parliamentary election in January 2005. U.S. military forces later remained in Iraq until the withdrawal in 2011.
