Oldroyd, Hazel May (Turner) Autobiography

Colaborador: srogers118 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

I, Hazel May Oldroyd Turner, was born February 18, 1892, in East Loa, Paiute County, (now Wayne County), Sevier Stake, Utah, a daughter of Archibald and Theda Jane Buchanan Oldroyd. When I was about four years old, I moved with my parents and brother, Edwin, to Lyman, Utah. It was here that my other brother, Willis, was born, also my sisters, Helen, Veneta, Lavell, Lucille and Janice. I attended school at Lyman and graduated from the Eighth Grade except for one year that I attended school in Glenwood, Utah where I completed the Sixth Grade. Being the oldest in the family, it was not possible for me to go on with my schooling as I was needed at home to help with the work as my mother was not strong. While growing up I worked for neighbors both in Lyman and Loa and earned many of my clothes. When I was seventeen years of age, I went with the Mathis family to Seven Mile Flat where I worked at the dairy, milking cows, making cheese, butter, etc. Each night and morning I milked between fifteen and twenty cows. The summer I was nineteen I also worked at the same ranch. Later I worked for the Neff and Mumford families at Horse Valley for five summers, my work consisting for cooking for large crowds of men and doing general housekeeping. My father bought an organ when I was quite small and I had taken a few music lessons from Norah Chappell. I was appointed Sunday School organist when I was twelve years old and I filled this position for many years. I was called to be President of the Y.L.M.I.A. in 1916, which position I held for five years. On October 4, 1917, I married James Collier Turner in the Salt Lake Temple. To us were born five daughters, Veneta, Hazel Dawn, LaWana, Mabel and Claudia and three sons, James Mark, Willis Edwin, and Scott Oldroyd. We lived for a short time with Collier’s folks then for three or four months in a house belonging to Steven Farnsworth, then we bought a two-room house where Claus DeLeeuw now lives. We lived here until October 1923, when we purchased a five-room house where we have lived since that time, with additions and improvements. During this time I served on the Stake Primary Board as First Counselor for two years and as aid for a number of years and as class leader in Relief Society. I served as Stake Relief Society Board member from April 1946 to April 29, 1951. I also served as Chairman of Ward L.D.S. girls in January and February of 1947. I wrote and compiled a history of Lyman for History of Wayne County book which was added to by my sister, Janice. I served as Drama Director in M.I.A. from 1951 to 1954. I served as organist in Sunday School from 1948 to 1958. I served as Organist in Relief Society from 1948 to present. I served as President of Ward Relief Society from January 2, 1938 to January 10, 1943. Have also served on committees for selling War Bonds during World War II, Red Cross drives, etc., and in raising funds for building our church house. During all these years we have been engaged in farming and cattle raising, poultry; as Collier bought his father’s farm and pasture and so on, after we were married. All through these years I have tried to be a helpful wife, doing the many things required of a farmer’s wife such as milking cows, raising chickens (which incidentally did much to supplement our income), also making butter and cheese, making soap, making quilts, rugs, afghans, crocheting, tatting, embroidering, etc. I also did most of my sewing. I have always enjoyed cooking and preparing good nourishing meals for my family. I have also given many music lessons, first to my sisters, then to my own daughters, and also to several other young people here in Lyman and many from Fremont, and later to my grandchildren. I enjoy writing poetry and have written many tributes to relatives and friends and poems for special occasions. I love the beauties of nature and like to express myself in poems. We have encountered trials and disappointments also through the years. We lost our first born, sweet little Veneta when she was 9½ years of age. She was stricken with Spinal Meningitis during that epidemic in January 1928. Scott also contracted rheumatic fever and consequently heart trouble, and LaWana had osteomyelitis, but we feel that we have been greatly blessed by the Lord nevertheless. I love life and feel that this is a very good time to be alive. I am very thankful for the light of the Gospel and for the many blessings it brings to me and to my posterity. I have enjoyed really good health, with the exception of a few minor ailments. However, I had trouble with my nerves during December 1956, and Collier took me to the State [Mental] Hospital in Provo for treatment. I stayed there for several weeks, then returned home well and strong again. When I was young, I greatly enjoyed dancing, also horseback riding, and playing ball. I have always enjoyed going on trips and outings to scenic spots. I also enjoy watching horse racing, basketball and baseball games. I like plays and enjoy watching the young people dance. I also like to read good books and magazines and enjoy going to see a good movie once in awhile. The movie that impressed me most was The Ten Commandments. I have always loved music. I have a testimony of the Divinity of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have had my prayers answered many, many times, both in behalf of my family and loved ones and also in my own behalf. ÉÉÉÉÉ ADDED INFORMATION: I was born in a small two-room log house in East Loa, Paiute Co., Utah. My father’s name was Archibald Oldroyd, who was born in Glenwood, [Utah] October 19, 1866.

Life timeline of Edwin A. Oldroyd

Edwin A. Oldroyd was born in 1894
Edwin A. Oldroyd was 9 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Edwin A. Oldroyd was 23 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Edwin A. Oldroyd was 34 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Edwin A. Oldroyd was 36 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. 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.
Edwin A. Oldroyd was 51 years old when World War II: Combat ends in the Pacific Theater: The Japanese Instrument of Surrender is signed by Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and accepted aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. The Pacific War, sometimes called the Asia-Pacific War, was the theater of World War II that was fought in the Pacific and Asia. It was fought over a vast area that included the Pacific Ocean and islands, the South West Pacific, South-East Asia, and in China.
Edwin A. Oldroyd was 63 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.
Edwin A. Oldroyd was 69 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.
