Title My Aunt Sadie
Description give of value. But many were the hours she took care of the sick without pay. If she knew anyone who was cold, she made quilts and took to them. She baked cookies by the dozens to be included in the boxes of food she would take to those who were hungry. There were few homes in Manti who did not know her helping hand. Aunt Sadie helped deliver over 1,000 babies. Some were born in their homes and some in her "hospital." The citizens of Nanti paid tribute to Sarah Tooth Olsen with a special program and a gift of a platform rocker, and all the children she had helped bring into the world who could attend were present. She worked with four different doctors during the 43 years of her nursing career: Dr. Henry Stranquist, Hr. George Sears, Dr. Lucien Sears in Manti, and Dr. Nielsen in Ephraim. After the Sanpete Valley Hospital was built in Mt. Pleasant, the need for hex home to be used for patient care decreased, so she sold it and returned to the home where she was born to take care of her mother. During the years she had been gone from this home it too had been remodeled, including the modern conveniences, Aunt Sadie passed away July 30, 1955, in the hone where she had begun her life - a life dedicated to service to others.
