LuDene Reese Poulsen

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

Much of my information is taken from "LIFE STORY OF LUDENE REESE POULSEN" Mother was born on the 12th of September, 1928 at 6:40 A.M. on her grandfather's home, (Howard Reese) in Benson, Cache County, Utah. Mother's parents were Athen Lowell Reese and Jessie Smith. Grandpa Reese's parents were Howard Reese and Martha Ann Toombs. Grandma Reese's parents were Jonathan Heber Smith and Alice Done. Mother was the middle child, in between Lowell Grant and Marjorie Reese. When mother was born, her mother thought someone said she had another boy. "She(Grandma Reese) said she was surprised and very pleased to learn that I was really a girl." Mom remembers standing outside of her house one day with her mother, when all of a sudden and the ground shook. From mother's earliest memory was that she had was while four years of age, She along with her brother (Grant) and Marjorie (Sister), taking sun baths every few days during the Summer months. They would lay a quilt on the South side of the dirt cellar just West of the house, so that we could soak up the sun for short periods of time. She would explain that this was done the defend against a childhood disease of Rickets. This explained that Rickets was a disease in which the bones do not harden. This happened because of a lack of vitamin D. The sun while exposed to the skin produces vitamin D. She went on to say that "Today, we can simply take the synthetic vitamin." Vitamin D is known at the sunshine vitamin. Mother mentioned that one day while she and her mother were outside standing when all of a sudden, she felt the ground shake. Grandma took mother's hand and after the shaking, she informed mom that that was a slight earthquake. She remembered that it would be very frightening if it were stronger and longer. That is exactly what happened several years later. In 1962 we awoke to an earthquake around 6:30 or so in the morning. I was in the top bunk and I kind of thought that it was cool to be shaking, when dad came in very nervously announced that we were to report to the basement. When we finally got down there, it became very apparent that we were not in a good place. We got up and outside to find others in pajamas's and wondering what to do. Our neighbor to the east, Grant Brough, made it out earlier than we did, and said that the road in front of our houses looked like a wave going up the road. This one mom remembered well. It destroyed the Stake Center in Richmond and North Cache was out of commission for about a month. Salt Lake Tribune; August 31, 1962 said. "The epicenter of the Thursday morning earthquake that gave northern Utah and southern Idaho a violent shaking, was placed at a point approximately 10 miles northwest of Logan by the department of geophysics, University of Utah." "The initial shock at 6:36 a.m. was so violent it sent the needle off the record at the U. of U. seismograph for a minute and a half.... Dr. Algermissen said that the Cache quake may have originated anywhere from 5 to 10 miles under the earth's surface."

Life timeline of Ludene Reese Poulsen

Ludene Reese Poulsen was born on 12 Sep 1928
Ludene Reese Poulsen was 11 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. 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.
Ludene Reese Poulsen was 13 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany invades the Soviet Union in Operation Barbarossa. Nazi Germany is the common English name for Germany between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party (NSDAP) controlled the country through a dictatorship. Under Hitler's rule, Germany was transformed into a totalitarian state that controlled nearly all aspects of life via the Gleichschaltung legal process. The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
Ludene Reese Poulsen was 29 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.
Ludene Reese Poulsen was 41 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
Ludene Reese Poulsen was 49 years old when Star Wars is released in theaters. Star Wars is a 1977 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas. It is the first film in the original Star Wars trilogy and the beginning of the Star Wars franchise. Starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, and Peter Mayhew, the film focuses on the Rebel Alliance, led by Princess Leia (Fisher), and its attempt to destroy the Galactic Empire's space station, the Death Star.
Ludene Reese Poulsen was 53 years old when The first launch of a Space Shuttle (Columbia) takes place: The STS-1 mission. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Space Shuttle program. Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. In addition to the prototype whose completion was cancelled, five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Operational missions launched numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST); conducted science experiments in orbit; and participated in construction and servicing of the International Space Station. The Shuttle fleet's total mission time was 1322 days, 19 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds.
Ludene Reese Poulsen was 63 years old when The World Wide Web is opened to the public. The World Wide Web (WWW), also called the Web, is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), interlinked by hypertext links, and accessible via the Internet. English scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN in Switzerland. The browser was released outside CERN in 1991, first to other research institutions starting in January 1991 and to the general public on the Internet in August 1991.
