Title Comforting and Curing
Description Source: Personal recollections. Family history. Sacrament goblets mentioned are on display in the Mt. Pleasant Museum. * * * COMFORTING AND CURING Lois Sears 3rown 95 West 200 South Manti, UT 84642 Non-Professional Division Honorable Mention Personal Recollection Sadie and Nolie! Just the mention of those two names comforted, soothed and helped cure the sick, the injured, the frightened for over fifty years. Nolie (Magnola Hougaard Sears), the doctor's wife, and Sadie (Sarah Tooth Olsen), a trained nurse, performed an invaluable service to the little town of Manti, The work and dedication of these two women provided medical service that was not always available to inhabitants of small towns. They made it possible for the people to get medical attention and comfort promptly, and for the doctor to render services that could not have been provided otherwise. Each of these women regarded it as her duty to keep medical attention within the reach of everyone in Manti and several nearby towns. This meant that the phones at the Sears residence were attended at all times of the day and night. 'Tot only did Nolie attend the phone most of the time herself, she also kept a list of the places the doctor was going in the order they would be visited. Thus, she could usually locate him within minutes. When an emergency arose and the doctor was involved elsewhere and simply could not be reached, Sadie took over. Her long years of training and working with doctors made her well able to cope with many emergencies. 76
