Rolf and Mary Magnusson's story

Colaborador: Pianomom3 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

In May of 1955 Rolf immigrated to America from Sweden. He found employment at the LDS church office building in Salt Lake City, in the data processing department. While there he met a girl by the name of Elisabeth Jones, who was a very long and close friend of Mary Louise Briggs. The two girls were born and raised in Ephraim, Utah. Liz found out that Rolf wanted to make some trips down to the Manti Temple and asked if we wanted to ride along because of our ties there. Also Mary Louise was in possession of a 7” console TV, that Rolf had expressed an interest in purchasing. For some reason or other, neither one of these two events took place. In the early part of March 1956, Rolf had arranged a blind date for Elisabeth with a friend of his named Alan Ax. Well, when the big night arrived, Rolf’s date couldn’t make it so Liz called Mary Louise and BINGO, they finally got together. The following day Rolf made the statement to Liz, “that’s the girl I am going to marry” After some time of dating and getting acquainted. Rolf popped the big question to Mary Louise. This took place while we were spending the weekend in Ephraim, introducing Rolf to Mary Louise’s grandparents and relatives. One year to the day on leaving Sweden May 7th, Rolf popped the big question to her. On the 15th of May, one year to the day of his arrival in the USA, He presented her with a birthstone promise ring, which she thought was an engagement ring. On the 21st of May, one year to the day from his arrival in Salt Lake, Rolf invited her to go for a ride and they ended up high on the avenues by the Primary Children’s hospital. Here he presented her with a beautiful diamond ring making their engagement official. After much discussion and debating on the day when this union should take place, it was decided that we would shoot for the 29th of June that same year. Because we had run into so many different reasons why we couldn’t meet in the first place, it seemed that we were just not meant to get married that year. The middle of June, Rolf made an appointment with Brother Henry D. Moyle, to find out if he could marry us in the Salt Lake Temple. It turned out he was unavailable that particular weekend with an assignment from the first Presidency. We felt we should approach our bishops and get a recommend, so it was decided that Mary Louise would attend sacrament meeting the following Sunday with Rolf. After the meeting he met with the bishop in his office to get the preliminary work done. After some time Rolf and the Bishop came out of the office. The Bishop asked Mary Louise what she thought about it and of course her answer was “Yes, I want to marry Him”. The Bishop’s reply was “who’s talking about getting married. We want him to go on a mission.” After the shock wore off, her reply was “of course, if that’s what the Lord wants him to do.” Just like when Rolf first arrived in Salt Lake City, there was something always in the way of their meeting, now it was the same with their plans to get married. Rolf left on the 7th of July to go back to Sweden. He returned home the middle June 1958. Plans again were made for the wedding and everything seemed to fall right in place this time. It was decided they would be wed on the 29th of August 1958 in the Salt Lake Temple, that happened, and that was the beginning of the Rolf and Mary Louise Family story. This story printed as Mary Louise Briggs Magnusson sent to Kristina, her daughter, in an e-mail dated March 30, 2003

Kristina Brown's funeral talk given at Rolf Magnusson's Funeral

Colaborador: Pianomom3 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

How do I start? I Kristina, Warren, Mark, & Karen, having been born of goodly parents, therefore we were taught somewhat in all the learning of my father... Things my father taught me and I share with him is a testimony, wanting to be obedient and worthy before my Father in Heaven. A love to travel and a desire to organize and plan ahead. Even though he did a better job. He also taught me how important family time is. He always made time for our family to do things together. I remember swimming, camping, picnics, sledding, movies and trips. That has been a major part of my own family now too. Many of my favorite memories happened while we were traveling with him. Him sitting on a boat showing and describing to Michael & Michelle where he grew up. Having him take them on the "walk" of where he grew up. Sitting in a testimony meeting in Jerusalem where he talked of the goals he had set in life and how good he felt about accomplishing them. Standing in the River Jordan where Christ was baptized. Calling him from the Hill Cumorah and the sacred grove and sharing my feelings and the feelings he had when he did the same thing. Those experiences were important to him. It was important to him to raise responsible, independent children. So he encourage each of us to make our choices and plot our own course. Harv an I always remember him telling us on our wedding day that God put the mountain there for a reason. Take care ourselves. Because of my Dad, -my brothers and sister and I have the blessings of living in this country. -we have a knowledge of why we are here and where we are going. -My children have a wonderful example. Dad was our strength and the anchor in our lives and will continue to be as we remember him. In the name of Jesus Christ....

Life timeline of Bernt Rolf Magnusson

Bernt Rolf Magnusson was born on 15 Jul 1933
Bernt Rolf Magnusson was 8 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. 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.
Bernt Rolf Magnusson was 24 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Bernt Rolf Magnusson was 30 years old when John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas; hours later, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in aboard Air Force One as the 36th President of the United States. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. He served at the height of the Cold War, and the majority of his presidency dealt with managing relations with the Soviet Union. As a member of the Democratic Party, Kennedy represented the state of Massachusetts in the United States House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate prior to becoming president.
Bernt Rolf Magnusson was 45 years old when Jim Jones led more than 900 members of the Peoples Temple to mass murder/suicide in Jonestown, Guyana, hours after some of its members assassinated U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan (pictured). James Warren Jones was an American religious cult leader who initiated and was responsible for a mass suicide and mass murder in Jonestown, Guyana. He considered Jesus Christ as being in compliance with an overarching belief in socialism as the correct social order. Jones was ordained as a Disciples of Christ pastor, and he achieved notoriety as the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple cult.
Bernt Rolf Magnusson was 56 years old when Cold War: Fall of the Berlin Wall: East Germany opens checkpoints in the Berlin Wall, allowing its citizens to travel to West Berlin. The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic, starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall cut off West Berlin from virtually all of surrounding East Germany and East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. 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. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany.
Bernt Rolf Magnusson was 57 years old when Nelson Mandela is released from Victor Verster Prison outside Cape Town, South Africa after 27 years as a political prisoner. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader, and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid by tackling institutionalised racism and fostering racial reconciliation. Ideologically an African nationalist and socialist, he served as President of the African National Congress (ANC) party from 1991 to 1997.
