Remembrances of Ruth Hazel Sainsbury Lyons by granddaughter, Caarolyn Ruth Lyons Engstrom


Ruth Hazel Sainsbury Lyons was a good grandmother. She worked for the Salt Lake County hospital in the kitchen. I don't know how she got to work or home except on Sundays. After church on Sunday my father and all of us would go to the hospital and pick her up. We all liked to go in the kitchen to get Grandma because she would give us cookies (really good ones!!). She was one of the first persons who had a television set in Salt Lake. She had won it some way. We enjoyed taking her home and then staying and watching television for a while. She always had a treat for us. I remember when my cousins (Uncle Harry's children) came from California to visit. We would go to grandma's and play and then we would walk from her home to ours. It was about a mile and a half between houses and we usually weren't allowed to walk except when our cousins came with us. One time when our cousins were here, my sister, Marilyn, our cousin, Pat, and I were jumping on grandma's bed when it broke (or at least we thought it broke). We were really scared and walked home.

After grandma retired, she spent a lot of time at home. She had a stroke while she was home alone. When the neighbors called us, we had a family meeting and decided that grandma couldn't stay at her home alone and so she came to live with us. She wanted to be helpful and so mother gave her the responsibility to do the dishes. She also was very good at hand work. She crocheted many beautiful doilies, bed spreads and other things. She also embroidered beautiful pillow slips. After her stroke, her one side didn't work too well so she couldn't do her hand work any longer. My Mother got her some liquid embroidery tubes and she learned to use them. She enjoyed many hours of coloring with them. We enjoyed having grandma live with us for about 3 years. She got very hard to handle because of her weight and so we had to put her in a care center. She didn't like it very well and was quite unhappy there. She had another stroke and was taken to the hospital where she died.
