Marion Elizabeth Clark Weber

Contributor: gjsbckjsb Created: 7 months ago Updated: 7 months ago

Marian Elizabeth Clark Weber Birth: Feb. 15, 1926 Dallas City, McKean, Pennsylvania, United States Death: May 11, 2013 Logan, Cache, Utah, United States Marian Weber, surrounded by her family, passed away as peacefully as she led her life. She was born in Dallas City, Pa., to Thomas Roy and May Ernestine Burdick Clark. She was the youngest of five children, Francis Elmer, Herbert Edward, Mildred Roberta and Verna Avanell. Marian grew up in Bradford, Pa., a city she loved to tell everyone about. Growing up, Marian was active in any activity that seemed like a fun time - roller skating, ice skating, learning many musical instruments and enjoying time with friends and family were all important to Marian. Marian's love for life and others radiated throughout her life and generations as she shared that enthusiasm even through her great-grandchildren. She had a strong testimony of faith and love of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Living her testimony inspired those she touched throughout her life. Church callings included Sunday School teacher, choir member, Mutual class presidency, numerous service opportunities and sharing her musical talents. After meeting her eternal sweetheart, Sterling Weber, they were married July 29, 1946, and were sealed in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple the following year. Following their marriage, they made their home in Star Valley, Wyo., where a beautiful family followed: Tanya, Julie, Rhonda, Clark and Steven. They later moved to Logan, Utah, where they enjoyed the rest of their lives. Marian treasured her role as mother, teaching her children music and sharing her talents of extraordinary cooking, reminding them to enjoy the blessings of life. She loved taking care of her home and planting beautiful flowers. Being positive was a trait she always shared with her family even until her last day. Trips out of town, especially with their car club, were a favorite past time for Marian and Sterling. They also enjoyed time spent with their family at picnics. Sterling and Marian could always be seen side by side on their front porch. It was how they loved to spend their time, there… and all through life. Marian is survived by Julie (Ron) Wiley, Rhonda (Randy) Christensen, Clark Weber and Steven (Robin) Weber; 15 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; stepson David (Pat) Weber and their five children and nine grandchildren; and sister Verna Thomas. Marian was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, one sister, precious daughter Tanya, and her shining star, Sterling.

Mildred Roberta Ledford was born on 28 Jan 1919
Mildred Roberta Ledford was 11 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

Mildred Roberta Ledford was 21 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.

The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
