Short Life of Lillian Tueller

Colaborador: Jane Little Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Lillian Tueller, or Lilly for short, was born in Geneva, Idaho on April 18th, 1903. Lilly’s parents, Gottlieb and Anna, travelled all the way from Switzerland to give their family the best possible life. Lilly learned a lot from them in that experience. They joined the church in 1880, which gave her the fortunate opportunity to grow up and live in the church. She enjoyed her childhood with her parents and felt their love towards each other and to her. Her life was not always easy though. In a conversation with Ross Plowman, I recall a time when she was a young girl on a farm in Idaho. It was the snowy season of March and Lilly was only 6 years old. The cows in the corral had broken out and made their way to the meadow near a large haystack. Unfortunately, their father was not there to tend to that problem. Noticing that the cows would eventually ruin the haystack, Lilly decided to do something about it. Being the caring and strong willed person that she was, Lilly and her two siblings went to go get the cows because her mother was sick in bed and could not. Trudging through the snow, they moved the cows back into the corral. She felt accomplished even though she was soaking wet from the snow. Unfortunately, she could not dry off quick enough and she soon developed a cold that kept her in bed for weeks. She even said that she was so sick, she couldn’t stand anyone to even touch her bed. Luckily, Lilly made a full recovery, however she suffered from rheumatism for the rest of her life. She found solace and healing in her father’s priesthood blessings and was grateful for him and the rest of her family for caring for her. As she grew older, she continued to help her family run the farm. On Thanksgiving evening of 1918, she had a date with the neighbor boy. His name was James Gerald Plowman, who would become her husband just two years later. They joined together in the Logan Temple and were sealed for time and all eternity. But of course, life caught up with her and only 3 weeks later, she was hospitalized for a heart condition. It took her over a year to be able to even walk a block. Still through her trials, Lilly stayed strong in the church and never gave up when hard things came her way. Luckily, she got better after having her first child, Gerald Jr. She had three more kids, Mavis, Carroll and Ross. She worked hard to love and nurture them. Her whole life was filled with service. She had 21 grandchildren who adored her and often stayed at her house. She loved to read to them, especially stories in the bible. She always made sure everyone had something to eat and wouldn’t take no for an answer when she offered food. On top of the fact that she was a home maker, she worked at the 5 & dime and spent a lot of time working in the temple. One of the most important things to Lilly was Family History. She spent a larger part of her last days finding her ancestors and hastening the work. One of the most amazing spiritual experiences that happened to Lilly was in her later years. She was in the hospital for her health reasons and had an out of body experience. According to the story told by her daughter Carroll, Lillian had the remarkable opportunity to see the Savior. She met him at the gates and felt of his love, so much so that she didn’t want to leave his presence. But, Christ told her that she needed to finish the work for one of her family members. Although it was difficult for her to leave, she soon returned to her body and was ready to finish the work so she could return to her Father and Brother in Heaven. On the 24th of September in 1969, the most amazing angel got her wings. Over a thousand people came to her funeral, creating a line around the building. Lillian Tueller Plowman was one of the most kind-hearted and loving people that has lived on this Earth. She changed the lives of many with her sweet spirit. She had a great devotion to the Gospel and loved all those she came in contact with. She was a strong woman and I know she is in heaven working hard and continuing to spread her love until we can all meet again. I am grateful for that knowledge and am inspired by Lilly. I can only hope to be half as great as she was.

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.
