Title Women Ancestors at Work
Description SECOND PUCE HISTORICAL ESSAY WOMEN ANCESTORS AT WORK Elaine P. Murphy 1035 South 500 East Orem, ULah 84058 My grandmother, Vilate Christy Harmon Parry, widow of Bernard Parry T stone mason and buildxng contractor stretched out on the large comfortable brown leather sofa in front of the marble fireplace- There was no three-foot-deep rock walls were doing a good job, along with the black walnut tree on the west lawn, to keep the room cool from the heat of the sun. On Grandma s lap were her scriptures, in her one hand the Relief Society lesson manual, and in the other her pencil. Her glasses were in place but would soon be pushed up on her forehead and her arms would rest on her bosom. She was thing about this lesson had stimulated her thoughts about the strength and helpfulness God had imbued in women, and she lay there thinking of some of her deceased family members. It would soon be time for her to keep an appoint-selecting a monument for her husband's grave. She dealt lesson she had just read. Grandma was tired, but she couldn't rest too long. Her philosophy had always been she could lie down. The leather couch was her favorite resting place even though she loved her feather bed upstairs, especially in the winter time with a quieC fire in the fireplace and occasionally an excited grand- child beside her. How 1 had delighted in this special treat. In the spring and fall the sleeping porch took precedence in the cool evenings, listening to her oldest son Harmon's children, including me, playing, "Run, Sheep, Run" and "Hide and Seek" in the front yard while potatoes were baking in a roadside fire for eating after the games were over. But right now other things were on her mind. 101
