Title Neils Rasmus Petersen
Description Neils R. Petersen mortgaged his home on September 20, 1927, as security for the purchase of a confectionery store known as the DO DROP IN. They made candy and ice cream and were renowned in the area for their confections. But Neils R. was unable to pay their mortgage off and the mortgagee foreclosed on their home. Neils R. and Jensine deeded [heir home to Fannie E. Daly on November II, 1930, in exchange for a deed to the DO DROP IN located on Lot 1, Block 76 from Fannie E. Daly. Neils R. and Jensine moved into the back of the store with Erastus and his family. On August 31, 1930, those new members of the Center Ward gathered at the remodeled Manti Tabernacle for dedicatory exercises. Remarks by Stake President L. R. Anderson reported that the Tabernacle had been remodeled to serve three purposes: as a Ward Chapel for the Manti Center Ward, as a Stake House, and as a Seminary Building. The boundary lines of the divided North and South Wards placed Neils R. and Jensine in the newly formed Center Ward. Neils R. was devastated. The building thai he had nurtured since its origin was no longer his home, but he looked ahead to the growth of the area and the church. During the Depression of the thirties, everyone was experiencing difficulties. Milk sold for five cents a quart but few had a nickel to pay for it. Fortunate was the family that owned their own cow. Neils R. was hired lo be the custodian of the remodeled Tabernacle. On December 9, 1931, Neils R. Petersen died, with what was diagnosed as a bad cold. For 1 was hungered, and ye gave me meati I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger and ye took me in: Naked and ye clothed me: I was sick and in prison, and ye visited me: And the King answered saying unto them. Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25: 35-42 47
