Title Recollection of Mother
Description RECOLLECTION OF MOTHER Anna Lou Nye Non-Professional Second Place Personal Recollection My mother, Reva Tennant Jensen, will be 93 on August 30,1993. She was bom and raised in Manti, Utah. Her heritage and ancestry mean more to her than I can begin to put into words. She was born to Alexander and Lueila Tennant, and two years later a sister. Lucille, was born. Reva's mother died of childbirth, leaving the two little girls without a mother. Alexander had a brother, Charles, and a sister, Maggie, in Manti, and along with an Aunt Marian, the little girls were raised. (Reva has Reva T. Jauen ca I9S3. ' wonderful memories of her (Courtesy, Anna Leu Nye) childhood and her family in Manti.) As long as I can remember, motfier was always writing, always clipping sayings and articles from books and papers and magazines. She would have her 'colfection" all around the house, a poem could be found in a cookbook, a story in the Bible, a note about someone in a storybook. I could be rummaging through a drawer in the desk and come across scraps of paper with her thought or poems or whatever on them. Sometimes they were just in her apron pockets. As I was growing up with my two sisters, I can remember Mom taking classes in writing and poetry, and we would wonder why she wanted to do that, why she wanted to sit at her desk and write, why al! the papers and books scattered around? It took me years of growing up to know why. (She still has writings here and there in her home now.) Mother has kept so many important and wonderful memories alive, so much history of Manti and the people who lived 59
