Title My Aunt Sadie
Description were afternoon and neighborhood parties, the Manti Ladies Literary Club, D.U.P., open-air dances at Palisade, Millstream, Cremona, Redmonton, the Bungalow, near home. We could also swim or dance at Crystal Springs. The Manti Theatre was showing moving/ talking pictures (tickets were 15-25 cents) with billings that ran the gamut of draraa, mystery, travelogues, westerns, news reels or comedies.

Kribs 195 3ast 100 South Manti, Utah 84642 She was bom Sarah Tooth, but to everyone she was Aunt Sadie, or just Sadie. She was my Dad's oldest sister; but she didn't just belong to the family, she belonged to everyone in the city of Manti. Her birthplace, February 26, 1882, was in a two-room adobe house, a block from the center of town on the northwest corner of Union and First East. This corner was the homestead of her grandfather, James Farris Tooth, when he arrived in Manti in 1855. She was the oldest of thirteen children born to James C, and Agnes Reid Tooth, and from an early age she worked alongside her mother helping care for her twelve brothers and sisters. Tragedy, in the form of diptheria and whooping cough, took the lives of four of the thirteen children at early ages, but the remaining nine lived full and productive lives. Aunt Sadie went to the Manti public school until she graduated from the eighth grade. She helped her mother at home and "worked out," a3 they called it in 52
