PROMONTORY POINTERS 10-12-11
On Saturday Winnie Richman received an important telephone call from Emily Wilson in Viola, Idaho. After an affectionate greeting, Winnie asked Emily how things were going. Emily answered that things weren’t so good: her mother Pamela L. Wilson had passed away on Sept. 28, at home. Pam and Emily were formerly of Promontory.
Pam really enjoyed horses and English riding and taught Emily to ride both English and Western.
Pam was an avid bird watcher. She especially liked to see the American bald eagle as they sat high on telephone poles here on Promontory Road.
When her husband Ken passed away, nearly three years ago, Pam’s church group at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Brigham City invited her to join a quilting class. She later said how much she appreciated the ladies and enjoyed producing quilts for various projects.
Both Pam and Ken were wonderful contributors to this column. Pam will be missed by all.
Orson and Jeannette Poulsen drove to Heber City Friday and Saturday to a Civil War reenactment. Orson’s son Kerry is involved in some of these productions but was unable to be there. Orson and Jeannette went anyway to see some of their friends.
The Wheatley family planted several young peach trees just before the winds came. They were afraid the trees would be blown over, but all is well so far. Laura reports doing housework and being with Everly and Georgia. She has also been doing some canning. She has some tomatoes from her garden spot which she is juicing and preserving. She and Zane planted some potatoes. The family enjoyed General Conference at Laura’s mother’s home.
Heather Lott came to the Double S Bar on Monday after work to help Winnie move some panels so a corral could be cleaned with the tractor. While there Heather and Winnie got a calf off the road and back into the pasture behind the house.
On Wednesday Winnie went to art alone. She made good progress on her two canvasses.
On Friday Winnie attended a Park Lane jewelry party hosted by granddaughter Brittney Richman. Winnie got some Christmas shopping done. She arrived home late, but still got a good start on her Conference Bread. It lasted all weekend during General Conference.
Boyd Udy reports working around the ranch. “There is always something that needs doing; something that has to be done to get me going,” he says. He and Kris enjoyed General Conference, but they miss Tyrell’s coming and going since he went back to Kansas to his job. And Jessie and Kynzee are in their new home with Zane. “It’s very quiet around here,” they say.
Kaye Draper reports her job and square dancing on Monday, calling bingo at the Liberty Center and the apartment complex, and Kareoke on Tuesday. She, Bea, and Gloria met at Millie’s for lunch on Wednesday. General Conference filled her time Saturday and Sunday.
We would like to congratulate Steven and Ashley Mitchell, son and daughter-in-law of Jim and Starr Mitchell, on their forthcoming Sacrament of Marriage in their church in Ogden.
