Roetta Van Orden

Contributor: SydneyW Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Roetta Van Orden was the mother of 9 children, six boys and three girls. She had brown eyes and brown hair. She was very soft spoken and a compassionate woman. She was a hard worker and thought of others before herself. Quotes that governed her life were learned early from her mother: "Once a job begun, don't leave it 'til it's done." "Take care of the corners, the middle will take care of itself." "What is worth doing, is worth doing well." She loved music and sang with the ward and stake choirs. Blackfoot stake choir was invited to sing in the Saturday afternoon April conference 1941. She loved the Lord and the scriptures. President Heber J. Grant was prophet 27 of her 41 years. The choir also sang for the Idaho Falls Temple Dedication September 23, 1945. She and her husband and five children were sealed 14 March 1934 in the Logan Utah Temple, a very happy day! She taught us by example, never sending us to do a job. It was always "come" not "go." Living through the depression and World War II were physically, mentally, and emotionally hard years. Living on the farm and around family helped. She was relieved of her pain and suffering from cancer on September 30, 1946. She remained cheerful and faithful to the end.

Life timeline of Roetta Van Orden Wood

Roetta Van Orden Wood was born on 8 Sep 1905
Roetta Van Orden Wood was 7 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.
Roetta Van Orden Wood was 24 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.
Roetta Van Orden Wood was 34 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.
