Wanda Taggart Shuldberg Short History

Colaborador: efordham Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

I was born in a small town of Lewiston, Utah to Marcus and Sarah Florence Bright Taggart on September 12, 1915 in the home where I was raised. They didn't have good hospitals and doctors in those days, but they had what they called midwives. They were doctors, nurses and all. My mother nearly died when I was born. She had a hard labor and was left paralyzed and was unable to eat or drink very much for days so the older sisters in the family of seven had to take care of me the best they knew how. I've been told I was dropped several times while being taken care of. I was raised in a small home on a small farm (20 acres). My dad was a carpenter by trade and he had to walk every day to his job, then come home to his family and chores. Mother would always have a very tasty meal for him in the evening. She would stay at home and surpervise the farm and garden. They always had a great garden. A big variety of fruits and vegetables. We lived a very humble life. We were never rich in money or wealth, but we were rich in a glorious family life. Mother always had family home evening. We were always doing things to be entertained. My sister Melba played the piano, my brother, Lindsay, played the piccolo and flute, my dad played the violin and the rest of us would sing. We celebrated all holidays to the fullest. We always had a large Christmas tree. We spent weeks getting decorations ready. We always had big popcorn balls and homemade candy. I started school when I was six years old and was promoted to the second grade. When in the fourth grade, I was promoted into the fifth grade, which I didn't think was too good of a system. You miss a great deal in learning lessons as well as friends, but I survived. I thought it was great at that time. I graduated from the eighth grade and also North Cache High School. High school was really fun. I enjoyed everything, including my friends, teachers and most of my classes. However, we didn't have as good a school system as they have now. No lunches. We had to bring our own lunch and we didn't have either the money or the clothes they have today. We rode to high school on a bus that was built on a chasse. No heat and very small capacity for riding. We nearly froze to death in the cold winter months. It was during my high school years that I met Howard Shuldberg and I went with him for three years. We met at a dance in Preston, Idaho. I was in his company several times before we made a date. Howard and I were married in the fall of 1934 (August 1, 1934). I was 18 at the time. For three Years we were busy trying to adjust to one another and make a home and a living. During that time it was very hard to make ends meet. We lived in two rooms off my parents home and Howard managed the farm to pay our rent. Then on May 10, 1937 we were two happy parents. Our daughter, Madge, was born. She weighed only 3 lbs 6 oz. She was 2 months premature. I was very ill. The doctor didn't expect either of us to live. They didn't have the facilities to keep premature babies in the hospital at that time so we brought her home. Her grandmother, Florence Taggart, and a sister, Moletta Roberts, took care of the both of us. We survived but I wasn't very well for quite a few years. However, seventeen years later, we were happy parents again and very proud. We had a boy, Howard Kelly, born January 27, 1953. The two children just made our lives the happiest and they still bring sunshine to us along with their families. I was very active in the LDS Church in my younger days. I was a teacher in the Primary, Sunday School and the MIA and was dance director for 4 years for the Gold and Green Balls that were displayed every year. I took an active part in the music circles. The choirs, the singing mothers and trios or group singing. After we sold our home in Lewiston and moved to Logan I joined the Bell Canto Choir. I also participated in the ward choir and Singing Mothers as well as trios. I also took classes in conducting music. While in Logan I worked at the Bluebird Cafe and Candy Company. Then we moved back to Smithfield where our home is at the present time. There I worked as Controller for the Smithfield Livestock Auction which my husband, with three others, owned and he managed the auction. I have been active in civic circles. I worked with the Cache County Republicans for three years and was one of the officers a year or two. I have had quite a few set backs because of illness and operations, thus, making it hard to accomplish all I wanted to do but I have managed to do quite a bit in spite of it all. I have taken up artwork as my hobby and I have enjoyed it very much. I have worked with oils and water colors. I have some of my paintings on display in Logan at Dr. Brynes office. I am always thrilled when I sell one of them. Howard and I have traveled in 29 states. We went back East three different times for new cars and trucks. We had the privilege of visiting two of our USA Presidents graves while on one of these trips, Dwight D, Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman. We visted their libraries built in their honor. We also visited President Johnson's library in Austin, Texas. I have had a beautiful life and am grateful for all the blessings and opportunities that have been given me. Life is very much worth living.

Marcus Lindsay Taggart was 10 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Marcus Lindsay Taggart was 16 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America.

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.

Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.
