THE LIFE STORY OF NOLA ANN DAVIS LONG My name is Nola Ann Davis Long. I was born November 20, 1950 to Edna Algenia Loveland and Linn Marston Davis. I was the last of their five children. We were all born in Pocatello, Bannock County, Idaho. When I was born my oldest brother Othello was newly married to his wife Elouise and living in Florida, my sister Jean was fifteen and going to high school, my brother Paul Eugene was with Heavenly Father as he only lived three hours and my brother Arnold was five years old. My mom and dad loved me a lot and were very glad to have me. They raised me to know right from wrong, good from bad and to know my Heavenly Father loved me. I liked to play with my cousin Mary Alice, she was only a month older than me. I always wanted her to be my sister. Her mom, Aunt Esther, and Mom (they were sisters) were very close. I also liked to play with my niece Dawn. She was Othello’s oldest daughter. They lived in Pocatello for a little while. Then they moved to California so we didn’t get to play often. I looked forward to starting school so I could be like my brother Arnold. I was real disappointed when I had to wait a year because my birthday was in November. Mom tried to make the time pass by playing school with me and telling me stories of the Book of Mormon. My sister Jean decided to get married June 8, 1956 so "Mom and I" were real busy getting ready for that. I got to be the flower girl and have a pretty new dress. Mom and Jean made the dresses. Mom was an expert seamstress and Jean was good too. Jean married a nice man named Roy Wendt. I liked him a lot because he liked children and paid attention to me and played with me. I was real happy that I finally got to start school. I was one of the "big" kids and got to walk with Arnold and our cousin Brent,, Dad and Uncle Ernie (Brent's dad) were brothers. Arnold was a 6th grader and I really was proud to be his sister. I looked up to him a lot. I liked to play with Arnold and his friends, especially Brent. It was a pain for Arnold, of course, as I was so much younger and a girl to boot. He would try to tell Mom but I would cry and she would make him let me play. My favorite games were "cops and robbers" on my tricycle and "fort" in the old willow tree. Arnold used to get even for having to play with me by throwing rotten tomatoes and dirt clods at me and my friends. We got to go visit our Grandpa Loveland, who lived in California. We were real excited to see him as we had never got to see the rest of our grandparents because they had died before we were born. He was a real tall gentleman with a "smiley" face. He had never been around children as he and Grandma were divorced when Mom was one and Mom was his only child. Arnold and I got on his nerves and he told Mom to have us quit arguing or take us home. Arnold and I squabbled a lot because I wouldn’t leave him alone. We only stayed a few days then we came home. He was probably glad. Dad was made stake mission president for several years and he was real busy and gone a lot. While he was president his mission was #2 in the Church for baptisms. He was always trying to get the #l spot. Dad was an excellent missionary. He knew the gospel of Jesus Christ backwards and forwards. He had learned lots of it on his first mission in Tahiti. We loved to get Dad to tell us stories of his mission. He had had lots of unusual experiences, one being shipwrecked on the little island of Tubui, He also had great stories to tell about his childhood. He was an excellent storyteller. For several summers we grew an acre of corn and sold it to the grocery stores. Arnold had to help more because he was older but I got to help a little and I got a bike for helping. It was the prettiest green bike and brand new too. It took me a long time to learn to ride it though because I'm not very coordinated. Both Mom and Dad were well know for being good gardeners for both flowers and vegetables. Our place was always a show place. When I was in the 9th grade, Mom started to get sick. She had terrible headaches and couldn't do too much. From then on it was down hill for her, she never got any better. In November of the 10th grade, I went to stay with Jean and Roy. Dad figured I'd do better there. Arnold married a swell girl named Karen on January 28, 1967. Mom died just a little while later, March 19, 1967. I was sixteen. Jean and Roy were just as nice as could be to me but I wasn’t very nice in return. I was all mixed up inside. I wanted to stay with them and not go back and stay with Dad, but it seemed I just couldn't get my thinking straight and behave. They loved me like one of their own and tried their best to help but I wouldn't cooperate. I graduated from high school in 1969 and started at B.Y.U. that fall. I didn't do very well there either, so I quit. I got a job in Salt Lake City as a house keeper for a divorced man with two little girls. His name was Cecil LeRoy Long, The little girls' names were Cherrie Lynn, 7 years old, and Lisa Rene, 5 years old. Roy and I were married that September 11, 1970. I was nineteen. I tried hard to be a good Mom but I didn't know anything about being a Mom and I was too young. I was way to strict and lost my temper way too much. I still didn't have my thinking straight. Dad came down and baptized Cherrie when she was nine and when Lisa turned eight he came and baptized her too. He tried to talk to Roy about the Gospel but he wasn’t interested. Roy was born July 21, 1937 to Alfred Gayle Long and Veda Fern Kirkhart. He was the oldest of two boys. His brother's name is Zed. He was born in Crescent, Oklahoma but grew up in Idaho, mostly at Kuna and Caldwell. Cherrie was born September 8, 1957 and Lisa was born December 4, 1963. Both girls were born cesarean. Roy and their mother, Linda Lou List, were divorced July 12, 1966. Cherrie had the hardest time with me of the two girls as she was the oldest. She got so she almost hated me. Things were a bit easier for Lisa. Dad died March 11, 1975 in Montana where he had just moved the past year. I missed him a lot as we all did, but he was finally at peace. We moved to Inkom, Idaho in 1978. Roy got a job in Pocatello and the chance to buy twenty acres up on a mountain, which was his dream. It was hard on Cherrie as she was a Junior in High School while Lisa was in the eighth grade. Roy is the only one in his field in Pocatello. He's a refrigeration, heating and airconditioning expert. His company was quite happy to get him. Cherrie got married immediately upon graduating form high school on May 31, 1979 to Wade Lee Johnson. The following May 29, 1980 she had a little girl, Christina Nichole. Roy has been a good husband. He's weathered lots of storms having me for his wife and the mother of his children. You couldn't find two sweeter girls than Cherrie and Lisa. Our Father in Heaven has blessed me with lots of opportunities and good times and I thank Him for these with all my heart.
