Answer to Ruth Colby Hill’s letter asking me (Dora) to write about her mother, Bessie and I growing up together.

Dear Ruth:

I have been trying to remember and jotting down incidences in our lives. Bessie was younger than I was. I was born 24th October 1912 and Bessie was born 24th May 1915 on her mother’s birthday.

When Dad (L.P.Christen) married, (Bessie, Wanda and Warren’s mother Till Matilda Breinholt) it was a hard adjustment to make. We did become a warm loving family. I remember how I felt out in our new life together. When mother Till would take Bessie on her lap with loving arms around her and sing to her- well I was a bigger girl so that was different.

The following is what I have jotted down:

About Dating


1 Jan. 1933 1 met Charles Gurr at a New Years dance in Aurora, Utah, where the Aurora Ward Chapel was used for recreational purposes as well as church meeting. It was heated with two huge pot bellied stoves, one in the west corner and one in the east corner.

Charles spied me sitting on a side bench like a wallflower. The tune was a fast jazz kinda and he swept me off my feet. I could hardly keep up. Charles’ friends that were with him from out of town standing in back looking on. I can’t say if Jay was with them because I had never seen these young men before 1 had a second dance with Charles that evening. They were mostly there as on lookers. The dances most always ended up with the few men, who were drinking, with the town sheriff standing by as the fights went on, to break up the dance. The following February, after sacrament meeting which was held in the evening, Bessie, Orea Christensen and I were coming out of the chapel and decided to take a walk together. Just after we started walking a car driven by Charles Gurr, who was known by "Chuck" stopped to talk to us. With him were Jay and Orrin Colby, They invited us to get in the car and go for a ride. I sat in front with Charles; Bessie sat by Jay and Orea by Orrin. That was the beginning of our dating.

The first real date happened in February, and the first party we enjoyed together: The evening of March 17, 1933 in Jay Colby’s home located next door South of Charles Gurr’s home in Sigurd, Utah. Charles and Jay came to Aurora and took us to Jay’s home where we met his family and enjoyed eating cake and home made ice cream. From there on we dated about once a week as a foursome. Jay did not have a car. Charles drove his father’s car. We went to picture shows in Salina or Richfield. Or to dances held once a week or so in Aurora, Sigurd or Venice. When the weather became warm we attended dances held in opep-air dance pavilions. Dances were held in Redmon which was on the north side of Redmond lake, or Glen Cove situated on the south side of a road into the hills going east outside of the town of Glenwood. There was also one called Maple Dell up toward Clear Creek Canyon. Some times, not often, we went to the Monroe swimming pool.

When Charles and Jay came to see us they brought each of us a box of cherry chocolates. I saved my empty candy boxes, stacking one on top of each other until they reached the ceiling in our north upstairs bedroom that Bessie and I shared.

We enjoyed picnics, one at Easter time in Daniels Canyon-on this particular one were Charles, Dora, Bessie, Jay, Leslie Lazenby and Sarah Christensen. It was nice. One time out on a date, just outside and south of Aurora, a wheel came off the car. It went rolling down the road. The four of us had a nice walk to where Bessie and I lived north and east of town. Charles and I spent that night with the Lazenby family who lived in the south end of town. The following morning they fixed the tire and went home. When we got home from our dates, Bessie always told Mother Till what we did. Mother Till ask me why I didn’t tell her about it. I told her Bessie had and there was no need for me to do so.

One ride that we took to Fish Lake, Othella (Charles’ sister) and Jay’s sister Matilda, went along as chaperons. They got out of the car and gargled and gargled with mouthwash. 1 guess they were trying to tell us we had bad breath.

Another time in the summer we met some friends at Maple Grove just for fun.

We got started to attending Sacrament meeting together later on in our dating period.

Marriage

Charles and I decided to get married in the Manti Temple the 21st of June 1934. The morning of the 21st Dad, Mother and I waited and waited and waited for Charles and his parents to come meet its at my home. We decided it was time to be on our way. At the Temple we still waited-they finally arrived. Why were they late? Jay Colby had let the air out of all the tires on Sam Gurr’s car. THAT’S WHY!

After two wonderful sessions and two special people that were witnesses, Charles father Peter Samuel Gurr and my father Lorenzo Peters Christensen, of our marriage for time and all eternity, and now I became a GURR. A great and special day to be always remembered. On arriving back to my home, including our parents and other special guest, Bessie had cooked a very delicious dinner for us. I was so proud of her for doing so.

I do not remember about Bessie and Jay’s marriage in the Manti Temple on Feburary 14, 1935. People at that time had their cars.

I was very disappointed because Bessie got married before the time she could have graduated from the Salina High School when school let out in the spring. I did not have an opportunity to graduate from High School because of Mother Till’s illness, after my sophomore year.

Our Teen Years

There was a time when Bessie, Wanda and I were put on a work horse. We wanted a ride, if it was dad or my brother Sylven that helped us on I do not recall. We all three fell off. That ended that experience.

As children, Wanda, Bessie and I had an opportunity to take music lessons from Maida Christensen. Bessie complained and did not want to practice. There was no more discouragement on her part, just quit taking music lessons from Maida. I think she later wished she had not quit.

Bessie loved music. She had a small potable phonograph. Those were the days when good sweet music was popular. She had some good records to play, which we enjoyed listening to. The music then was melodious and good for the soul.

We had a time to relax by reading good books, church magazines and other good material, see good picture shows. Radios and television had not been invented at that time.

Heart break and tears

A sad time in our life came when a little 2-year-old boy, Wells Virgil drowned in the Rocky Ford Canal that ran just in front of our home. He was such a sweet loving child. Bessie and I were ironing cloths. We were using the two ironing boards. She is using one and I the other. The heavy cloths irons were heated on the kitchen range. This sweet little boy came up to me for a kiss and a hug. How we loved him. He then went to Bessie for a kiss and a hug. He left us and went outside through the kitchen door. From there he went to his grandma who was sitting in the shade beneath the weeping willow tree, picking over some gooseberries that had been freshly picked that morning. Suddenly, Virgil disappears. Mother ask if he had come back in the house, but no. Immediately a search was began. His mother Wanda had taken a basket of laundered cloths across the street to deliver to grandma Peterson. We checked there. Immediately Sylven, Rich Howard, and Alma Sorensen (neighbors) jumped into the canal searching for the missing child. Sylven found his this little boy down stream a little ways. The footbridge that crosses the canal to continue our walk from our house to the highway is where Virgil fell in the canal. This footbridge was not a narrow one. The child had decided to follow his mother to grandmas and grandpa Peterson’s home. He probably tripped and fell in. This was a special time in our lives with broken hearts over this very special child whom we loved so much.

Once a year in May, Bessie and I and also Wanda, if she was home from school in Ogden, we spent hours making flowers from tissue paper, crepe paper and screen wire for stems, to decorate graves on Memorial Day. A tedious ironing job. We complained. There was no artificial flowers then. We had lilac bushes and snowballs for the real live flowers to help remember the dear ones who had passed on and were buried in Aurora and Redmond Cemetery.

In the spring of the year, mother would take Bessie and I up the street a couple of blocks west of our home to a shop where a lady sold fancy hats, plain hats, veiled hats, scarves etc. Everyone wore hats when we were growing up.

On the 4th of July and Christmas we had new dressy dresses made by a dressmaker who lived in Aurora or one who lived in Redmond. Our 4th of July and 24th of July was when we were given money to by cracker jack pop corn, ice cream or root beer. We enjoyed our own home made root beer. Children’s dances were attended in the afternoons, then also on Christmas day.

In our growing up years our family would walk up to the street to Jesse Day’s Show house to see a movie. The movies were silent. You need to read what was said as the pictures flashed by. Bulah Cooper or Jesse Day’s daughter played a player piano between scenes of the movie. One evening as we were walking down the street on our way hack home from a movie, I discovered a swelling on the left side of my face—MUMPS!

In my stoty, when I said we, I was meaning Bessie and I. When old enough and in the summer time we would go swimming in the canal on the south side of our footbridge. The neighbor’s girls would join us. One time Bessie got carried under the bridge where water was swifter and deep, she nearly drowned.

In the fall it was time to bottle apricots, peaches, apples, pears, plums and tomatoes. The tomatoes came from our own garden, apples from Unde Will Walls apple orchard and later what Dad’s apple trees produced. Peddlers came from LaVerkin in and near St. George with early fruit in time to get peaches and pears bottled before school started. Mother needed our help. We also made jelly, jam and pickles.

We worked together mowing lawns, weeding gardens, washing cloths and making soap. In the spring the carpet was pulled up. On the lawn we would drag it by pulling it up and down over the grass to get the deep dirt out. Also in the fall, a sheet was laid spread out on the grass to dry corn, to dry gran cola (a curly leaf type vegetable) covered with cheese cloth to keep it clean while drying in the sun.

In the summer time there would be a time, especially the night before the 24th and 4th of July we would sleep out on the lawn with neighbor girls joining us. The stars and night air so beautiful, also games in the evening playing "Run my sheep, run" and in the winter when fresh snow fell it was fun to play "fox and geese". The lawn were large to play on winter or summer.

Bessie and I walked to church, school, activities and other things going on. The Christensen girls, Pauline, Orea, Twilla, who lived half a mile north of us would usually catch up with us. We rode a yellow school bus to High School in Salina, Utah.

Bessie had thin blond hair and blue eyes. As we grew older, Mother Till had our neighbor, Beth Harward, come and put wave fluid on her clean head of hair and set her hair in waves. Now girls were getting their hair done with a permanent wave. Money is scarce. Wanda and I used our curling irons, which were heated in a coal oil lamp, later electric curling irons, very much appreciated to help us as they were used. Sometimes I would try waiving Bessies hair.

At times Mother would take Bessie into the kitchen to do the cooking while I was cleaning the dinning room and parlor room.

Bessie did learn how to make better pie crust than I did. Wanda was very good at making cakes and pie. Our Mother Till was an excellent cook.

There were times when we each had a pail or pan of soap and water working together to get the floors scrubbed; our knees would bear up under this activity.

When our work was done and time for our selves, Bessie and I would clean up and take a walk up town and go out north to Rettmers garage and gas station to buy a favorite candy bar to enjoy eating. We had a wonderful life together.

As we were older teens, Mother would take us to the dress shop in Salina or Richfield. She wanted us to always look nice.
