Title Danish Friends
Description This stalwart little woman was a pillar of strength to all who knew her, and despite her undying love for her family in Denmark, she deeply loved and believed in her Church and never looked back at what might have been had she remained in her native country. Annie Peterson Home Annie Peterson Manti, Utah about 1926 Documentation: Andrew O. Peterson Diaries Personal Memories Mary Peterson Personal Memories Ruth P. Jensen DANISH FRIENDS Vonda Merriam Senior Second Place Historical Essay This is an accounting of two special ladies, born in different areas of Denmark, but finding a friendship in Manti, Utah. Nelzina Marie Mikkelsen Peterson was bom February 6, 1888, in Aalborg, and Karen Reenberg Hansen was born March 28, 1882, in Skyum. My mother, Nelzina (called Nellie), had a lonely childhood. My grandmother worked as a seamstress to earn their living. Leaving her child in the care of people living in the apartment, she stayed in the homes of rich people until their sewing needs were accomplished. In her spare time she was good to the Mormon Missionaries, doing their washing and mending. 8
