On the 17th of December 1929 in Chicago, Illinois, during the fifth largest winter storm ever recorded in that area, new father Edwin Camenish braved the storm on foot to visit his wife, Mary Lucile Russell, at the Hospital, and his third little daughter born to him and Mary. They named this little winter sprite Wyla Camenish. She was a beautiful baby with lots of dark hair and a cherubic face. The Ed and Mary Camenish family, comprised of parents and four daughters, Lucile, Valene, Wyla and Kay, moved from Chicago to Salt Lake City, Utah during the Great Depression. They stayed with Mary's parents, Harry Hale Russell and Dollie Elizabeth McEntire, while their farm home in Provo, Utah was being made ready for them to occupy. It was in Provo that she grew to adulthood. She attended schools in both Orem and Provo during her growing up years. Wyla graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1948. She loved that old farm and the many memories attached to it. Her sister Valene stated: "Wyla was by nature curious, but ever watchful and careful with her little sister Kay. They had great times together and were fast friends from birth. Wyla, as a little child, was impulsive and daring; testing the boundaries perhaps more than any of Mother and Dad's brood." She was a bit of a "tom boy". She loved any and all animals, climbing trees and picking fruit and often joined her father in the garage working on the mechanics of cars and other farm equipment. Other skills and talents included reading, music, art, games, china painting, sewing, knitting, history, canning, gospel study, and letter writing. She had beautiful penmanship, a good memory, and a flair for entertaining and newsy letters. She kept in touch with a large circle of friends and family all her life. She met her future husband, Robert Rollins, at a birthday celebration for her elder sister Val. She married him in the Salt Lake City Temple on the 18th of December 1947 just one day after she turned 18 years old. In their early years together they developed skills like camping, fishing, and rock hounding among others. She and Robert celebrated over sixty years together and raised seven children. Eldest to youngest they are: Brian, Randy, Margo, Dorian, Paula, Cary and Glen Rollins. Rock solid in her faith in a loving Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, she always had an intimate relationship with them both; and found great joy in serving others. She also maintained active membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many callings, including President of the Special Primary. Her life, spent in service to others, is a good example of a faithful daughter of Father in Heaven. How many lives she touched! She left this earth trailing credited acts of love in her wake. She goes home loved and revered and not forgotten by those whose lives she touched. A noble daughter of God. Funeral services will be held Thursday April 14th, at the Cherry Hill 1st ward chapel on 1700 S. 400 E. in Orem, Utah at 11 a.m. Friends and family are invited to call at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 E. 800 N., Orem, Utah on Wednesday, April 13th, between 6 and 8 p.m. or prior to services at the chapel from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Interment will follow the funeral services and will be in the Provo City Cemetery.

It is wonderful to be writing again and to have the time and energy to spend as long as I wish on a poem, a line, or a word. Given my age, I don't have time to wait for responses from magazines or contests. But I do share in my own small communty and with people I know. Recently one of my poems was published as a letter to the editor in our local paper. Of course I had to disquise it as a poem - but that was fun. I write Fiction, Poetry, and Memoirs. I serve on the board of our local Poets & Writers Group. Also active in the Poets Group sponsored by the board. @ Mar 2011.

Classes of 1948 & 1949. Richard Thayne. He graduated from BYH on May 26, 1949. Source: 1949 BYH Graduation Exercises Program. ~ ~ ~ ~ "The BYU schools were a very complete, well-chaperoned school system. It included grade school, intermediate, high school and college. Hannah Reynolds taught at the BY grade school and her husband, Albere, ran a paint store in Springville. You could hear the Y Bell ring all over Provo. It would disturb you in the middle of a test, a religious class or any other activity. I went to high school there. Vernon Reynolds and his Rita both went there. A beautiful young lady by the name of Mary Ann Wilson walked in the high school with us. She and I looked at the beehive out front and talked about it. The friendly Dave Crowton was our coach. I played on the football team. A. John Clarke was principal, Mr. Sparks taught accounting, and Mr. C. Lavoir Jensen was an excellent math and physics teacher. He would go to Calder's Ice Cream for dinner. Anna Boss Hart was an excellent English teacher -- great on grammar. She had very neat, waved, immaculate hair. In her later years, she went on the river run on the Colorado River. She had a real interest in every student. Julia Caine was a very interested History teacher, quite a serious lady. I used to ride a simple blue motor-scooter that I bought from Lincoln Hanks. One winter day, I slipped on the ice, scraping my knee. I still went on to school. I was working part-time in a service station. I remember when they built an underground tunnel from the high school [Arts Building] to the Education Building. In my first college days, I took photography from Wayne B. Hales, and pre-flight aeronautics, learning to fly planes. There was a small radio station in the education building and I had a 15-minute radio program. By Richard Grant Thayne, Provo."
