Aunt Margie's Birthday Cards

Contributor: Mina Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Birthday time for all of J Rulon and Louella's children meant that we could count on a birthday card from mother's younger and only sister, Margerie Gardner. We were always absolutely delighted with the new dollar bill that she enclosed in each card! In those days...the 1940's and early 1950's ...a dollar was a great present. Hot lunch at school cost 15 cents per day. How generous and thoughtful she was to help to make the loss of our mother Louella a little easier to bear. Whenever I saw Aunt Margie my heart was warmed by her gentle refined manner and her good common sense. I felt that Mother Louella would have had those same qualities. I still treasure those memories.

Great-Grandma's Letters

Contributor: Mina Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Great Grandma Allermand's letters show her wit and humor. Her letters show that she is fun, pithy, self-sufficient, affectionate, and very solicitous of her family. She died when I was only 4 years old, but I treasure the cards I have from her. She made a practice of always remembering everyone's birthdays, which her daughter, Margie, continued after her death. We are still searching for a letter that she sent my dad, Monte Nelson, in 1960 or so asking about his fiance, Janet Samuelson. She wanted to know if Janet was related to Tony Samuelson. Evidently Great Grandma Allermand went to school with Great Grandpa Tony Samuelson in Salt Lake and thought highly of him. They were both kind and musically talented people. It's a fun fact that two of our great grandparents knew each other years before their families were joined by the marriage of their grandchildren! July 1956 to Monte Nelson in Ferron, Utah from Seattle, Washington Hello my dear boy: Well at last I really heard from you. I'll bet you are happy to be home. I know they are happy to have you. I had such a nice birthday. Now I'm 72 and only 28 years to go. Ha! Ha! A lady at church told me I look as young as when she first met me 28 years ago. I said by heck I don't think I was this ugly 28 years ago, was I? I received gifts and cards from far and near. I think of you always when I look at the beautiful clock you gave me. Conrad wrote me a letter also sent me a good book and said they had talked it over and decided if I would visit them they would pay my way. Now that's very nice of them, but I can do for myself thank goodness. I hope I'll always be able to do for myself. Margie says I'm too darn independent, but it's a good feeling. I would rather do for others than have them do for me. We are expecting Jeannie and sweet red-headed baby and my new Gson. He is 1stLt. His Dad is a Com. They are stationed in NJ so the kids will see them weekends as they will be in Dover Del. Margie was so thrilled her Boss gave her a 25 cent raise that's $2.50 an hr, $100 a week. She was going to ask for a 10 cent raise when she came from her vacation but got 25 instead without asking for it. We were hoping you would come thru this way someday you will visit - maybe on your Honeymoon. Ha! Ha! I hope Silva pays our sweet Sylvia well, but I doubt it. She is such a good worker and I know how stingy they are. Lots of love to my boy. XOXO from Grandma Allermand Christmas Card to Monte, unknown date: I had a nice Xmas with Margie and Geo and Ralph that's Jeanie's daddy in law. He was here for Thanksgiving too. He took a picture of me with one that comes out all done. We sent it to Jeanie. Hildy said it was so good he will have it done in oil. I'm home at Nyears. It's raining and I don't care to go to Margies. I just saw the beautiful parade in California. I received so many nice gifts and cards. I still go to my Drs. have to keep my eyes from going blind that glaucoma sure hurts. Some days my (neuritis?) is plum crazy. I've been to our cinema 3 times one picture has been on 10 mos. I received my (pars?) again. We haven't had snow in Seattle yet but rain, fog and wind. I'll send your birthday gift Janet's too. Many thanks for the nice gift. Lori Anne is a darling. I'll put it in a frame and add it to the others on the wall. I have Conrad's 3 framed too. Grandma with lots of love XOXOXO To Mrs. Monte Nelson, February 1964 Hey you folkus: I have been waiting to hear if you received the $20 for you and Monte's birthday but not a (smell yd.?) We haven't had but very little snow here but wind and fog. I hear you have had a nasty winter in Salt Lake. It's Elsa's birthday the 22nd so I sent her a gift too. Conrad said he took his family to see Uncle Jim. That was nice. Jim is 85 now. Cora and Joe called on them when he had open house. Jeannine is so good to write to us so is the kiddus. They sure are smart - John is 6 and writes like a 7th grader. I'll bet Lori is very sweet. Cinerama is on the 11th mo. with the same picture How the West Was Won. I saw it twice. I'm still going to my Drs. must keep going. I feel so sorry that sweet Sylvia hasn't any babies. Jenny Lee lost her baby that's about 6 now she has lost. Cora and Joe wanted so to be Gparents. There is a lot of sickness here the Flu is raging. Do you wear the red shirts I sent. Our Bishop wears red all the time he sure is a gay blade. Last week he had charge of a funeral had his red sweater on the sister in charge told him to take it off. He ans and said I hope you are around when I go so you can see if I look right. A lady close by heard it and told me. Margie has a new rug and some new furniture too. They are letting so many men out of work here its terrible. I hope you keep your job Monte dear. I hope some day I'll be better so I can see you all before I turn up my toes. Lots of love to you all. Gamell Bestamor XOXOXO To Mr. and Mrs. Monte Nelson and Kiddus, March 1967 Good morning all my dear ones- Good a.m. it is no fog or rain. Well how is everything at your house? There isn't much new here only what the goofys do. One has to laught at times of course. I feel sorry for them. One never knows what will happen to us. So Beth is getting married. Hope she will be happy. Sylvia always said what a beautiful girl she was and sweet. I'm so happy I've had 3 good nites sleep. They moved the dippy ones from my room. I told the Mgr. I just couldn't take it any more so they got away on the end where all the (nulls?) are. One just can't imagine what crazy things they would do and say. I said to Margie if this keeps up I'll be as nutty as they are - poor old me. Now I'm wondering who next they will send. There is 3 beds in most of the rooms but I have a shower in the corner of my toilet so only 3 will use the toilet most has 6. I'm happy that the food is so much better than the other nursing home was. Last nite they showed us some good pictures. There is some young people that come and sing once in a while. I can't understand why some of our own church don't come. Ladies from RS comes. Well Margie had such a good time George went too. They waited at the airport 6 hours for the plane then when they arrived in (Chicago?) so they had just missed the plane to Albany. Of course made it bad to loose the times they had to get back on the job. Jeannine has such a nice home and is happy. The kiddus are all doing well in school. They will be transferred to Topeka Kansas in about a month so the kiddus will go to school there. Hildy was called to go to SA. When he came back he was so sick with the flu. He was here one nite but it was late had to look after his crew first then he stayed at Margies. My dear Margie takes me out for a long ride on her day off. She does all my shopping too. Hope dear Monte has a good job lined up. Lots of love from Gamell Bestama to all XOXOXOXOXO

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.
Margerie A. Gardner was 11 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Margerie A. Gardner was 21 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.
Margerie A. Gardner was 36 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. 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.

Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and finished in 1992. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses.
