Going to the Temple

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Going to the Temple By Jane Stoker Venable This is revised and taken from a letter written by Jane Venable to her descendants “Dear Great Grandchildren” “I will tell you a true story to put in your book of remem[#$@^!]nce.” My Parents Lettie Stoker ( Mother) Jesse Stoker (Father) “My father, Jesse Stoker, was an orphan. His Mother died when he was three years old and his father died when he was seven. He spent the rest of his growing up years living with other family members.” “When he was thirteen years old, he started herding sheep. They would travel in the hills from Bountiful, Utah to Pocatello, Idaho. He said ‘up in the hills he felt very close to God in the great outdoors.” “When he married my mother it was not in the Temple. Because he was out in the hills he did not have an opportunity to go to Church so was not worthy to get a recommend.” “When I was a little girl and went to Sunday school, I was taught about how important it was to have an eternal family.” “In order to go to the Temple my Father had to be re-baptized because they could not find a record of his baptism. He also had to live all the commandments required to get a recommend.” “In 1911, when I was just seven years old my father and mother took us to the Salt Lake Temple where we were sealed as a family. They had five children to take to the Temple my Brother, Herman, Myself, Leslie, Thelma and a baby brother Lee.” “We got up very early in the morning, loaded up in the wagon and drove up to Sunset, Utah, where we left the horses tied to the wagon with hay to eat while we went to Salt Lake City on the Train. It was cold, but we were on a very important mission.” “We were taken to the nursery. Where we stayed until it was time to be taken upstairs.” “When I saw my Mother and Father all dressed in white kneeling at the altar, it was very beautiful. The Temple was the most beautiful place I had ever been in. I decided that day that when I got married, the Temple would be the place where I would go.” “On January 23, 1924 Grandpa Venable and I went to the Salt Lake Temple and were sealed for time and eternity.” “We have now spent 57 happy years together. Your Great Grandmother Matilda Jane Stoker Venable” [This is taken from a letter Written by Jane Venable to My Children]

A Memory of Grandma Stoker

Contributor: MDSIMS Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

One of the things that I was privileged to do when nearing the completion of my College work was to take a class in recording and working with Oral History. As part of the class requirement I had the privilege of interviewing a number of the older residents of Roy. One of these was my Great Grandmother Lettie Stoker. We had our interview and after it was completed and I had turned the recorder off; she started to talk about her husband Jesse. She mentioned many things that I found of interest as he died five years before I was born. I never knew him nor heard her speak much about him, even though I had spent time in her home and company. I was even her Home Teacher and visited often there. One of the great regrets I have had to deal with as the years have passed is that I did not reach over and turn the recorder back on. I guess my excuse was that what she was saying was not part of my project on the history of Roy and I did not feel it would be of interest to my instructors. I will tell you I have mentally kicked myself thousands of times in the last forty years for not doing so. As I teach seminars on the subject I have used it as an example and tell people don’t turn off the recorder nor be afraid to turn it back on. Anyway as I said she started to talk about him and their life together. This also led to some stories of her youth. I remember one that I thought I might share. She was telling about dating and told me this story. On one occasion she had gone with a group of young people. I do not recall if it was a date or more of what kids today call hanging out. Any way they were all in a buggy and they headed over to Ogden. I am not sure, but there might have been a little drinking on the young men’s part as well. They had gone around the sand ridge and were going through the train switch yard, somewhere between 22nd and 28th streets in Ogden. As they were maneuvering through the buggy got trapped or stuck between the rails and was struck by a train. In order to avoid finical responsibility and possibly to get back cost of damages done the Rail Company had the young man charged with trespass. They scheduled a trial and Lettie was called in as a witness. She was if I remember right staying at the time with her sister, Polly and Ren. In an effort not to cause trouble for her friend she decided that she would not go and testify. She did not know how but her father, Grandpa Hammon, somehow got word of the situation. He came and talked to her. He told her in no uncertain terms that it was her responsibility to go and testify and tell the truth as the things that happened. I am not sure but there might have even been some discussion of actions, such as the use of a strap or other actions that might be taken if she did not go. She said she went and did her duty and never though again when those kind of issues came up in her life about how to avoid them. This is an interesting story that I thought you might enjoy. It tells us that even though to us as young folks she might have appeared to be a stern old lady in her time she was a little frisky and not much different that we were.

Lettee Matilda Hammon was 59 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.

Lettee Matilda Hammon was 81 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.
