Title A Lady of Note
Description A LADY OF NOTE Dorothy J Buchanan Professional Second Place Personal Recollection Her name was Mabel Borg and it was synonymous with music When her fingers touched the piano keys, we could hear a definite air and a flair She lived in Mt Pleasant near the D & R G Railroad tracks with her parents, James and Sarah Borg, and a brother and sister She practiced diligently and appeared in When she grew older she attended school in Salt Lake City, but she always came back to Mt Pleasant and gave music lessons during the summer season I was one of her students, but did not rise to the top like some of them did I only got as far as the "Fifth Nocturne." by a composer whose name. 1 am sorry to say,1 have forgotten Many of my friends took lessons from Miss Borg Amber Hartford was one who was an outstanding student Each summer when Miss Borg and her sister. Georgia, returned to Mt Pleasant, they were invited by my mother to spend an afternoon at our home Mama never failed to serve chicken salad and cheese-straws, plus her luscious lemon pie We enjoyed the conversation, the laughter, and the general news It seemed to me that Mabel always had a smile for everyone Her personality was delightfully spontaneous She and my parents became the best of friends My father was Bishop of the North Ward, of which Mabel was a member She always gave benefit concerts for the ward members Even seat was filled Mabel had become one of the most noted pianists in Utah Then came a summer when Mabel did not come alone She brought a fine-looking man with her named Mr Jenkins She had met him in New York, where she had been studying, and they had married He possessed a unusually fine voice, and the two of them gave a most impressive concert The proceeds were to help purchase a grand piano for the ward Naturally we were all evened Mr Jenkins voice captivated us I can still remember two songs that he sang "Danny Deever." and "Trumpeter. Who Are You Calling Now"" I could feel definite goosebumps And Mabel's selections were a treat The two of them had a rapport that was joyous to observe They left Mt Pleasant to go back to New York, and sometime later we received word that Mr Jenkins had disappeared He was not only a musician, but a private detective and often went on long trips for his employer One day, he was called to go to some other country Mabel went down to the ship dock with him and kissed him goodbye and she never saw him again It was really a tragedy, they were so much in love Mabel 86 she attended school in Salt back to Mt Pleasant and gave the lop like some of them did I Nocturne-." by a composer 1 have forgotten Many of my Borg Amber Hanford was one student When she grew older Lake City, but she always came music lessons during the her students, but did not rise to only got as far as the "Fifth whose name.
