Vera Coulam

Colaborador: barbara Created: 1 month ago Updated: 1 month ago

Vera’s grandparents and great-grandparents were pioneers who joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints in England and then made the journey by ship and ox team to reach the Salt Lake Valley. Vera is the ninth of 11 children born to Henry Rice Coulam and Mary Ann Jackson. She was born February 17, 1916 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Vera attended South High in Salt Lake City, Utah, which included a Seminary class. She enjoyed participating in the High School Dance Club, and graduated in1933. After graduating, Vera began work as a secretary at Auerbachs Department store. Vera also worked at Saltair. Saltair was an amusement park on the shores of the Great Salt Lake. She was a cashier on the giant racer. It was at Saltair that she first met Jay Martin Bone. Vera was more daring than many other girls, and she and Jay would stand up while riding the roller coaster. David O. McKay married Jay and Vera on September 8, 1937 in the Salt Lake temple. After they married, they lived in the basement of Jay’s parent’s home. They lived there when their first child Donna was born in June of 1938. Vera eventually became the mother of nine children. Donna Mae 1 June 1938 Claudia Jayne 7 Aug 1940 Joanne 3 Feb 1943 Frank Coulam 22 Jul 1944 Veralynn 15 April 1947 Jay Steven 8 Nov 1948 Beverlee Jeanne 25 Sep 1952 Debra Ruth 12 Jun 1957 Richard Delbert 13 Jun 1960. Vera and Jay raised their family in several different homes in the Salt Lake City area. Vera did a lot for her family. She would make her children new outfits for Christmas and Easter. She also made a down coat for Jay, and suits for her boys. She washed almost every day of the week but Sunday and hung the clothes on the line. During World War II Vera served her country by working in an arms plant, while Jay was drafted into the army. He was sent to Walter Reed Medical Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland for a few months where he was given an honorable discharge, because of his leg. He had sustained an injury from a shooting accident that happened in 1940 when he worked at Saltair. Jay rebuilt pianos for a living and Vera helped him do this. At one time he put together rocking horses, which he sold. Vera also made chocolates, and English butter toffee and butter mints to sell in the ice cream stores Jay purchased. Jay made ice cream, and when they lived in a house in Murray, Utah they had a soft ice cream maker where you could dip cones in hot chocolate syrup. They had big 5 gallon buckets of hard ice cream, and a theatre type popcorn maker. Vera used to have candy stashed away up high in the kitchen cupboards. They would buy big probably 2 inch chocolate squares that were about a foot square. At one time they lived in a house that Vera's family had lived in. It was on 9th East and almost 13th South in Salt Lake. It had an upstairs with a winding staircase and 4 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. It had an entryway that could be closed off, two separate living room areas, a large dining room, and a kitchen, closed in back porch, and a spooky basement where Vera made soap and used a wringer washing machine. Eventually they moved to Murray, Vera had a big garden in Murray. They had chickens and a couple of horses and milk cows. On Sunday they often had chicken dinner or ham with potatoes and gravy, homemade rolls, salad and things from the garden like corn on the cob, etc. It was always a big meal on Sunday. Vera usually always had a dessert, and fresh butter and lots of whipping cream for deserts. There were also a lot of dishes to do. Every fall Vera canned hundreds of bottles of tomatoes and beans from the garden along with bushels of fruit. In Murray they also had a large swimming pool with a diving board. Jay and Vera enjoyed entertaining and would have their families over for food and watch the kids show what they could do turning cartwheels, etc. Vera liked to go deer hunting with the men. Once she was shooting at a deer that was higher up and beyond the men, and the men got a little worried that she was going to accidentally hit one of them. She enjoyed walking and fishing; she also enjoyed crafts and would do them with her children. Vera would get together with a club of women and serve tasty food. She liked to cook, knit and crochet. She also liked making ceramics, quilting and sewing. She made each of her 50+ grandchildren a quilt. In 1972 Jay and Vera moved to St. George, Utah to operate the Colonial Motel. Jay manned the office, and Vera cleaned and washed the towels and bedding everyday for years. With hard work, they kept the business going until they were able to sell. The profit off their retirement would not kick in for a few years so they both got their real estate licenses and worked for Century 21. It took Vera a couple of tries to pass the state exam, but she was so happy when she did. When Jay and Vera retired, they moved Jay’s parents to a nursing home near them so they could look after them. In 1986, after Jay’s parents had both passed away his health began to fail. He developed Parkinson's disease and Vera took care of him. For a while, they lived with their son Frank, at his house in Murray. Vera had never been involved with the family finances until Jay became ill and she had to learn how to take care of bills, insurance, Medicare, IRS and keep everything going. She did extremely well. Jay eventually passed away on July 26th 1990. Vera lived four years longer departing this life on August 21, 1994 at the home of her sister, Jane Moore in Salt Lake City at age 78. All her life, Vera knew hard work and she knew how to have fun too, she also exhibited great faith, love and devotion for God, family and her fellow man.

Vera Coulam Bone – Mother of Claudia Jayne Bone Fisher

Colaborador: barbara Created: 1 month ago Updated: 1 month ago

Vera Bone was born February 17, 1916 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was the ninth child of eleven and the sixth daughter of Mary Ann Jackson Coulam and Henry Rice Coulam. She attended South High School in Salt Lake and enjoyed the Dance Club. After graduating from high school in 1933, she worked as a secretary at Auerbachs Department store and as a cashier on the Giant Racer at Saltaire amusement park where she met Jay Martin Bone. Jay worked in the shooting gallery. They were married September 8, 1937 in the Salt Lake Temple by Elder David O. McKay, who later became President of the Church. The 8th of September also happened to be Elder McKay’s birthday. During World War II when Jay was in the service she worked in an arms plant. While Jay was finding an occupation by delivering for Salerno and Coca Cola, building children’s wooden toys and eventually settling on rebuilding and delivering pianos, Vera was busy being mother to Donna, Claudia, JoAnne, Frank, Veralyn, Steven, Beverlee, Debra and Richard. Vera was the ultimate Mormon homemaker. Along with taking care of her family, she became excellent at knitting, crocheting, sewing and quilting. At one time she took ceramic lessons and made beautiful pieces that she mostly gave away as gifts. Every Christmas and Easter she had her girls dressed in beautiful homemade dresses. Vera enjoyed helping Jay in the piano shop at the back of their home at 1192 South 9th East and when they moved to 5600 South. She washed almost every day of the week but Sunday and hung the clothes on the line. She had a large garden and every fall canned hundreds of bottles of tomatoes and beans from the garden along with bushels of fruit. Vera kept the butter churned, the chickens cleaned, the garden picked, the kids clothed and fed and helped Jay with the pianos. Jay broke out in a skin rash from the piano paint and had to change his profession in the late 50’s. He started driving a school bus and became custodian of a new church stake building. Vera was there right along with Jay cleaning that church each week. Vera was very close to her brothers and sisters and hosted many reunions in the back yard with a cookout and party at the family swimming pool. Vera was called to be Richard’s Cub Scout Den Mother and had to give it up as her doctor found the stress raised her blood pressure. She was then called to be the Homemaking Leader in the Relief Society where she served for many years. The family remembers the plastic grapes, aluminum-etched trays, and wall decorations and of course all the beautiful quilts she made and gave to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Vera and Jay lived in the Cottonwood area for 20 years. Vera and Jay were concerned about their retirement fund, which neither the school nor the church offered, so they moved the family to St. George in 1972 to run the Colonial Motel. Jay manned the office, but Vera cleaned and washed the towels and bedding everyday for years. Because of their hard work, they kept the business going until they were able to sell. The profit off their retirement would not kick in for a few years so they both got their real estate licenses and worked for Century 21. It took Vera a couple of tries to pass the state exam, but she was so happy when she did. When Jay and Vera retired, they looked after Jay’s parents after moving them to a nursing home near them. In 1986 after they were both gone, Jay’s health began to fail and Vera patiently cared for him as he suffered with Parkinson’s disease until his death the 26th of July 1990. Vera had never been involved with the family finances until Jay became ill and had to learn over night how to take care of bills, insurance, Medicare, IRS and keep everything going. She did extremely well. Vera has loved and supported her children in their achievements and challenges. She had 54 grandchildren and 13 grandchildren when she passed away. She was a great example to her family. She walked for exercise and was always busy babysitting or helping others. She was very humble and didn’t like to be praised but left a legacy of family to do that for her. Some of the things her children have learned from her are: hard work, service, sewing (crochet, knitting, quilting), canning, gardening, cleanliness, thrift, a willingness to try new things, enjoyment of reading, music, dancing, commitment, sacrifice and love. Vera exemplified the three-fold mission of the Church. She was a great mother and example to her children of Christ-life life in perfecting herself and family, she worked in the extraction program to help redeem the dead, and she sent two sons and has had numerous grandchildren serve missions. Her family legacy will continue to praise and honor her by trying to live the principles she taught. Vera passed away August 21, 1994 at the home of her sister, Jane Moore in Salt Lake City at the age of 78.
