Tribute to Lucinda Henrietta Wilson Frost Willis, February 26, 1893 to July 5, 1986, by her granddaughter Judith Bloomfield Valimaki

Contributor: 8diggin Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

She was known as Louie, Aunt Louie, Grandma, Grandma Louie and Mama. We have a hard time telling people how much this little soul has meant to us. We have been a five generation family now for 13 years. You don't just know Grandma, you love her. Grandma was born in Monticello, Utah the seventh of ten children. She grew up out at Spring Creek, moving into Monticello when she was fourteen. Her family had the first house in Monticello with a lumber roof. She married my Grandpa, Heber Frost, in 1912. With only an eighth grade education, she later ran several businesses, including the County Assessors Office. She helped her Great Grandchildren with their arithmetic and laughingly said her ABC's backwards to her Great Great Grandchildren. Eight children from out east of Monticello knew her home as their home. Two Indian children called her Mama. My Grandma and Grandpa had hearts as big as the world.They knew no strangers. They probably didn't even know what the word bigot meant. If you were poor, needy, desperate or a widow, you knew that Louie and Heb would help out. They refused to lock their front door at night - what if someone needed to come in! The more money they made, the more they gave away. They taught us all that love and compassion are empty words. They weren't much on hugging and kissing, but I always knew I was loved by them. They showed their love in ways that to them counted more. They were always there. The legacy they leave us can not be equaled. I can not remember a time that I haven't wanted to be just like Grandma and Grandpa. I will cherish forever something that Grandma said to me just before she died: "Whenever I've had a crisis, I open my eyes and you are by my side." No one person has been given a grander gift than when God saw fit to give me my Grandma and Grandpa. I love you both dearly. We all love you, and oh, how we miss you already. But of one thing I am sure, we will be together again. I love you, Grandma - I love you, Grandpa. -- Judy

Heber and Louie Frost, early pioneers, by Ruth Frost Bloomfield-Hinkley (daughter) in The San Juan Record September 11, 1996

A Centennial sampler Heber Frost and Louie Wilson were both born in February, 1893, Heber in Snowflake, Arizona and Louie in Monticello, Utah. Heber and his family came to Monticello to make brick for the Mormon church which replaced the log church of 1888. They also made brick for the George Adams home and the schoolhouse where City Park is now located. Heber and Louie became aware of each other in their early teens. Louie's parents, Nicholas and Phoenetta Jane Wilson, lived at Spring Creek at the foot of the Blues. Heber would ride horseback - only he knew where - to see the pretty, curly-headed girl. It was love at first sight. They were married October 2, 1912 in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. They were 19 years old. Heber and his two brothers, Clarence and Wilford, homesteaded Dodge Point, each taking a third. They took their brides there, planted their farms, and started their families. In 1920 with the harvest finished and the granaries loaded with wheat, Heber and Louie's granary caught fire and was completely destroyed. They moved to Monticello for the winter in a small, two-room home just west of the Adams home. Heber didn't want to farm anymore. When Heber saw his first car, he was fascinated with it and knew what he wanted to do, so he bought a car. There were no decent roads at that time - just wagon roads, cow and horse trails that wound through deep, sandy and muddy ruts. Heber had a blacksmith make some Fresnos, a two-up and a four-up. A two-up was a small metal scoop shovel pulled with two horses - a four-up was a large metal scoop shovel that took four horses to move it. They would move the dirt - a forerunner of present-day bulldozers. State road commissioners saw his talent and natural engineering knowledge and made him San Juan County Road Commissioner. The cow and wagon trails were soon straightened, graded, and gravel added. They built the first graded and graveled roads in the area, including Cottonwood Wash, Hatch Wash, Butler Hill, Comb Wash, Recapture Hill, Long Canyon, Peter's Hill and the road east from Monticello to the state line. Heber and Louie had two service stations. One, the Eagleberger Station, was built at the front of the Perkins rock house, where they also built a cafe. Heber would take a Model A truck to Dolores, Colorado and bring gas for the service station in barrels. In the middle of the Great Depression, a steady stream of Model A's came from the east, on their way to California. Some of the families stayed in San Juan County - a farm could be homesteaded for $1 an acre. Heber and Louie loved helping people. Children from the farmland lived with them in the winter so they could go to school. Every Fourth of July, at the first sign of daybreak, Heber set off a large explosion of dynamite at the old town pond and race track (where the hospital now stands). It would literally shake the dishes in people's cupboards and the glass windows would rattle, but it did get the people up. For many years, residents would load wagons with homemade ice cream freezers and go up close to the Horsehead. There they would pick wild strawberries, raspberries, and gooseberries, get snow from the north side of the hills, and have ice cream in July. Heber was county commissioner several times, in addition to road commissioner. He was mayor, CCC supervisor, and county assessor. Heber also served as deputy sheriff during a wild time in San Juan County. Posey, the Ute chief, caused a lot of problems and fear to the Mormon settlers. Forty years later, a four-year-old great grandson of Posey, Mark Anthony Wells, was given to Heber and Louie to raise. The family adored him. Mark was not well. He died at 27 years. Louie always had a cafe. She was a famous cook - her bread, biscuits and pie would melt in your mouth. She could cook them in a dutch oven if necessary. Heber died of a heart attack in 1954 at age 61. At his funeral, the chapel and cultural hall were full, overflowing into the halls and onto the lawns. Louie died in 1986, at age 93, after a bad fall. Heber and Louie had three children of their own. The first, Helen, died at birth. Bruce came next, then Ruth. Last, but not least was the dearly loved Mark Anthony Wells. At this time, 1996, the living posterity includes daughter Ruth, granddaughter Judy, six great-grandchildren, 20 great-great-grandchildren, and one great-great-great grandchild.

Life timeline of Lucinda W. Frost

1893
Lucinda W. Frost was born in 1893
Lucinda W. Frost was 12 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Lucinda W. Frost was 19 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Lucinda W. Frost was 35 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Lucinda W. Frost was 46 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. 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.
Lucinda W. Frost was 47 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.
Lucinda W. Frost was 60 years old when Jonas Salk announced the successful test of his polio vaccine on a small group of adults and children (vaccination pictured). Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.
Lucinda W. Frost was 71 years old when Martin Luther King Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his death in 1968. Born in Atlanta, King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, tactics his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi helped inspire.
1977
Lucinda W. Frost was 84 years old when Star Wars is released in theaters. Star Wars is a 1977 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas.
