Description a family and following the church She became a charter member of the Manti Camp of DUP in 1910 Peter and his wife Eunice Ann were good, family-oriented people Their children adored them The Munks cared about their children, their neighbors and even stray cats To have a slice of Sister Munk's home-made bread was a real treat Aunt Clara often told the story of going across Main Street to play with the Jorgen Madsen children One day there was a scrap of bright cloth lying in the Madsen dooryard It was so colorful, and thinking no one cared for it. she put it in her pocket On returning home, her mother saw the scrap of cloth and asked her where she got it Clara told her mother that she just found it in the Madsen's dooryard Her mother said. "Did Mrs Madsen give it 10 you?" Clara nodded her head. "No" "Then we must take the scrap back to the Madsens and explain " And this they did Grandma always had compassion for stray animals I remember the times I have seen many stray cats lapping up a pan of milk placed in the dooryard Grandpa always teased her with, "If it was a snake that needed your help you would take care of it" My grandparents were known for their compassion, their thoughtful ness, honesty and dependability They taught me about family values and caring for others They taught me to appreciate the many blessings I had They gave of their great love to each other, to their children and grandchildren, to their neighbors and friends Often-times. grandmother told me how on a summer evening the neighborhood group, after a day's work, would sit in their dooryard sharing happenings of the day and singing songs Grandma Munk died in 1936. she and Grandpa were married some 68 \ears Grandpa died July, 1945. lacking three months of being one hundred and one years old Documentation Personal remembrances of the author THE OTHER 49ers. a topical history of Sanpete County..
