Title Lucile
Description She is an active citizen, honest, considerate and kind. She has many virtues and is loved by all who know her. She is a great lady! Always she is ready to help those less fortunate than she. She is an interesting and caring person, my COUSin- -Lucile Anderson Keller. Lucile Anderson Keller about 16 years old. Courtesy Conrad Keller On October 9, 1896, Lucile Anderson Keller was bom in a small Danish house on Manti's Main Street to Lewis Robert (L.R) and his wife Clara Maria Munk Anderson. When she was six weeks old, Lucile's parents moved to their newly built, two-story, red brick house at 552 South Main. The walls of the house were built, but there was no porches, nor was there a stairway to the upper floor.

The other set of grandparents was Lewis and Mary Ann Crowther Anderson who lived near the Manti Temple. Always she has been proud and happy knowing both sets of grandparents and even several great-grandparents. Lucile had a pony to ride when she was a little girl. Also she remembers horse-and-buggy rides. On one occasion, she was dressed in white and rode on a white, decorated hayrack wagon to honor Miss Utah who stood in the center of the wagon under a large paper Sego lily. When Lucile was a child, it seemed every family had a milk cow, chickens, a pig, a garden, and some fruit trees. They did not have much money. Wood and coal were used for heat and cooking, and all babies were bom in the home. Too, all clothing was made of either wool or cotton material, and not until World War II were nylon stockings available [being rationed}. As a child, she wore hand-knitted, black wool 81
