Title She Never Looked Back
Description also a self-taught nurse and became very proficient in this work. She helped bring many children into the world and was very skillful in helping with medical problems in the community. On one occasion, there was talk of amputating one man's leg as he had endured an open sore that wouldn't heal for a long time. Annie asked that they do nothing for a few more days. She went to the mountains and gathered a variety of herbs, of which she made a salve. This was applied to the sore, and slowly but surely it began to heal, and eventually the man's health was restored completely. During her life, she had many similar experiences using a variety of herbs and her skills in nursing the sick back to good health. Throughout her entire life, Annie remained faithful to her beliefs. She served in almost all of the Church auxiliaries and was president of the Relief Society in her ward for 20 years. Her life was hard and she was constantly confronted with problems that required difficult decisions. Yet through it all she raised her family, who eventually carried on her steadfast traditions. She lived her dedicated life believing in God and the other good things in life and to help her fellow man in every way possible. Annie's daughter Anna grew up to be a very lovely and intelligent young lady Though her regular schooling was limited, Annie recognized her abilities and had a burning desire for her to receive additional education and become a teacher However, there simply was no money to accomplish this. For a long time Annie struggled with the idea of asking for help from her father in Denmark. She finally wrote him and made the request, having no idea how he might react to such a proposal. A little later an envelope came with only the money she had asked for. Annie was sad that no word had come from her father, but she was overjoyed that Anna could receive additional schooling. Anna became a teacher and taught school in Moab for many years. The envelope from her father was the only contact that Annie ever had with any member of her family after leaving home. 7
