Thelma Atkin Barber (6 March 1918 – 28 May 2010)

Contributor: R and N Englestead Created: 4 years ago Updated: 4 years ago

Daughter of Heber Atkin and May Smith Married Lionel Thomas Holyoak Married Frank Webb Barber, 4 Nov 1967, Cedar City, Iron, Utah Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Thelma Atkin Holyoak Barber, 92, passed away peacefully on May 28, 2010 in Cedar City, Utah. She was born March 6, 1918 in Beaver, Utah to Heber and Mae Smith Atkin. She graduated from Beaver High School in 1936. She married Thomas Holyoak in 1936 and he passed away in 1966. She then married F. Webb Barber on November 3, 1967. Their marriage was later solemnized in the St. George LDS Temple. Webb passed away in 1993. She was a café waitress for many years and then worked for the Coleman Company, where she made many life long friends, eventually retiring from Coleman at the age of 71. She was a very good seamstress and enjoyed several hobbies and was famous for her homemade chicken and noodles. Thelma enjoyed associating with countless friends throughout her life. Thelma had a very special love for her three dogs. She enjoyed working in her yard and on her rose bushes and flowers each year. She had a great love for her Bishop, Reed Erickson, who also served her faithfully as a Home Teacher. Thelma was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We are certain a joyous reunion is taking place as Thelma is preceded in death and reunited with both her parents, her brother Alton, sisters Arvilla Gale and Lottie Hunt, her daughter Charleen Barber and four infant children who were lost at birth. She is survived by her children. Her sisters. Also her 20 grandchildren, 71 great grandchildren (and two on the way!) And 12 great-great grandchildren (with one more on the way!). She loved each of us very much. We loved our mom and she will be dearly missed until we meet again. The family wishes to thank all those at Kolob Regional for the loving care and assistance they always offered our Mother, especially Jeanine Reynolds and her therapy, which always provided Mom with such comfort.

Thelma A Barber (Holyoak) 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.

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.

Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

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.
