Husband goes by "Mac" to avoid confusion, since his father goes by "Joe". Alternate address: PO Box 17257, Salt Lake City, Utah 84117 ~ ~ ~ ~ I attended BYU Hawaii my freshman year after college and returned to BYU Provo the fall of 1969, where I majored in music. I was chosen the Engineering Week Queen and 2nd runner-up to Belle of the Y in Spring 1970. I met Mac Brubaker as part of the Engineering Week contest, and married him in August 1970. We are the parents of 8 children and 11 grandchildren so far. In the children, we have an orthopedic surgeon, an assistant dean at the U, a daughter who heads the harp department at BYU, another daughter who teaches harp, an attorney specializing in international arbitration, a web architect, a son graduating this year with a degree in finance, and a high school sophomore who loves martial arts. Two of our girls wanted to play the harp. Lessons and associations led to me owning a business of renting, importing and selling harps. Another child wanted to learn classical guitar, so I studied that with him for a few years. I am currently studying organ with Tabernacle organist Bonnie Goodliffe, and enjoying the Temple Square organs. As a result of having grandchildren, I write stories for children, am a song-writer and composer, and I am starting to illustrate my own books. My husband is a commercial real estate broker in Salt Lake City. He and I team-teach at the LDS Institute on the U of U campus. We also enjoy 4-wheeling, water and snow skiing, and sea kayaking. After waiting more than 10 years for a permit, we are finally rafting the Colorado River this summer! @2008

Stephen & Irene Richards

Board of Trustees, 1939 to 1959. Stephen L. Richards was born June 18, 1879 in Mendon, Cache County, Utah to Dr. Stephen Longstroth Richards and Emma Louisa Stayner Richards. He was a grandson of Willard Richards, who was with Joseph the Prophet at the martyrdom in Carthage, Illinois, and who was one of the early pioneers of Utah. His mother was a daughter of Arthur Stayner, a man of business affairs in the early history of the West, and the man to whom the establishment of sugar works in Utah is largely indebted. He was blessed with an ideal mother and a father of sterling worth who had much to do with his careful training and principles of integrity, truthfulness, honesty, sincerity, kindness, respect for parental authority, devotion to home and the members thereof, and loyalty to God and His work. Elder Richards was baptized when about fourteen years old and was ordained sucessively to the several offices in the Priesthood, except that of a Seventy. From his youth he took great interest in Church activities. The scholastic training of Elder Richards was characterized by the unusually large number of schools which he attended. To begin with he came under the splendid tutorship of Camille Cobb, a woman of rare culture. After that he attended Farmington public school, Davis Stake Academy, Salt Lake county and city public schools, LDS University, Salt Lake High School and University of Utah, while his professional training was obtained in the University of Michigan and in the University of Chicago. From the latter institution he received his LLB degree. After completing Law School, he passed the bar and served as an attorney. One year at the law school of the University at Michigan and two years at the law school at the University of Chicago gave him the foundation work for the success he subsequently attained in his chosen profession. While at the University of Utah he was one of the team of inter-collegiate debaters; he was the first Utah student to be graduated from the department of law at the University of Chicago and was one of the first class ever graduated in law from that institution receiving a cum laude degree. On February 21, 1900, Elder Richards married Irene Merrill, daughter of Clarence Merrill and Bathsheba Smith), who was born June 4, 1874, in Fillmore, Utah. This marriage was blessed with nine children, namely, Lynn Stephen, Irene Louise, Lois Bathsheba, Alice Lula, Helen Merle, Georgia Gill, Joseph Albert, Philip Longstroth and Richard Merrill. He held many positions in the Church, all of which he filled with honor and integrity. His first official position in the Sabbath school work was that of secretary of the Sugar House Ward Sunday School; later he became a teacher in the same Sunday School. He taught also in the Sunday Schools at Pleasant View and Malad, Idaho, and in the 17th Ward of Salt Lake City. In the Stake Sunday school work he became assistant superintendent of the Salt Lake Stake and later a member of the Granite Stake Sunday School Board. In 1906, at the age of 37, he was called to the Sunday School General Board. Following the death of George Reynolds he was appointed second assistant general superintendent of the Sunday School Union April 6, 1908. He was also chosen as a member of the Priesthood Study Committee and of the Board of Control of the Deseret Gymnasium. In business he served as officer and director in a number of corporations. In Tooele he engaged in farming and in Oneida county, Idaho, in ranching. For some time he also acted as principal of the Malad City public schools and for many years was a successful practising attorney in Salt Lake City, serving also as a member of the law faculty at the University of Utah. Also Religion class work has claimed a portion of his time, and at one time he served as superintendent of Religion Classes in Malad City, Idaho. Whether at home or abroad he kept up a steady and consistent interest in Church work. At Ann Arbor, Michigan, his home was the place where religious meetings were held for the students and members of the Church. While in Chicago he did Sunday school and other Church work with students. In his chosen profession of the law Elder Richards was exceptionally successful. The law firms of which he was a member were always among the foremost. In private practice his work was in the civil as distinguished from the criminal law procedure. He was one of the safest counselors at the Salt Lake bar and was very conscientious in his professional work. For two terms he served as secretary of the Utah State Bar Association. In the midst of his ecclesiastical and secular activities, Stephen L. Richards was chosen as a member of the Council of Twelve Apostles, being nominated by President Joseph F. Smith and unanimously sustained by the First Presidency and Apostles in one of their general meetings. He was ordained an Apostle by President Joseph F. Smith on Thursday, Jan. 18, 1917. After his calling to the Apostleship, he was very active in Church affairs, visiting the different Stakes of Zion and attending to ecclesiastical duties generally. On April 9, 1951, President David O. McKay called Elder Richards to become his First Counselor. He held this position until his death May 19, 1959 at Salt Lake City, Utah.

Class of 1946. Carol Richardson. She graduated from BYH on May 23, 1946. Source: 1946 BYH Graduation Exercises Program.~ ~ ~ ~ BRIEF BIO: I was born up near Logan, but moved to California with my family when I was 2 years old. We lived several places in California for 11 years, including most of the time near and in Sacramento. My folks lived north of Pleasant Grove in the Manila Ward, and I went to Pleasant Grove schools from the mid-8th through the 11th grade. I was unhappy there. My mother had attended BYU from 1908-1911, and then became a school teacher, and she still had many old friends in Provo. She found a couple with whom I could live and attend BY High School, and I lived with them from 1945-46. I was very happy there! I graduated from BYH in 1946; I only attended there in my Senior year. I did attend BYU for one year, 1946-47. ~ ~ ~ ~ I married 1st to Kenward McKinney of Sacramento, California. He passed away on 6 Aug 2002, at age 77 yrs., while we were living in Price, Utah. There is a BIO of mine, on a website, which can be accessed and read of my life and marriage to Ken for 54 yrs., plus all our adventures and travels around the world. Go here to see it: http://www.asktom-naturally.com I've been working online with a noted New York nutritionist, Tom O'Brien, since 1998, helping him answer health questions from many persons around the world, along with others of his Health Advisors who are also on that website. When the first Page opens, scroll down to my name and Click on it. There,you can see my Pic and read my Bio, plus several articles which I've written. ~~~~ Married 2nd to Ronald Alexander, who was born near Cleveland, Ohio, but spent his life after 1951, SE of Houston,Texas. His wife passed away in April 2002. He then sold out his contracting business and went to live with his son in Destin, Forida. We met via the Internet in a chat room of a mutual investment group. After 3 months of exchanging emails, phone calls, and letters with pics, I flew down to Florida to meet him on 30 Jan 2003. It didn't take us long to confirm what we already knew: that we were compatible in many ways and both lonely. So we were married on Valentine's Day, 14 Feb 2003, in the Ft. Walton Beach LDS Chapel, by the Bishop. Ronald was baptized the next day, after taking the missionary lessons, and being satisfied that the sister missionaries knew more than all the prior ministers ever did, and who could never answer his probing questions about Life, why we are here on Earth, and what happens after death. My two older daughters, Rynda Christensen and Dari Lynne Davis, who lived in Nashville, Tennessee, and Huntingtown, Maryland, were able to be at our wedding, with their husbands. They fully approved! And the son-in-law from Maryland, Norman Davis, was the one who baptized him on Feb. 15th, and ordained him a Priest. In March Ronald and I flew back to Utah to pick up my car, more clothes, and assorted other stuff. He then met my other two daughters, Debbie Henrie of Price, and Kenna Onoman of Taylorsville, plus my son, Bruce McKinney, of Draper. They are all married with families, too. All of them really liked and approved of Ronald, including the grandkids! At the present time I have 21 of those, and 17.75 great-grandkidlets (one being expected in mid-November, 2005!) While we were in Utah, Ronald and I traveled around and visited three national parks in southern Utah (Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef). He had never seen Utah before and was unfamiliar with mountains! We also drove to California and met my older brother, James Richardson and his wife, living in Portola, about 50 miles north of Lake Tahoe. Then we went down to Sacramento and saw many others of my nieces, nephews and cousins. We also went to San Francisco and up the Pacific coast for over 100 miles. When we returned to Florida, via Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, we came to live here in Panama City Beach, about 50 miles east of Destin. There is a small but growing Branch of the Church here, and we were welcomed with open arms. Ronald was soon made Exec. Sec. and I teach in Relief Society, plus a Genealogy class during Sunday School, including Online PAF. I've had extensive experience with that, as over the years I submitted more than 32,000 names on my first husband's lines. (He joined the Church soon after our marriage in Sacramento.) Now I'm busily researching Ronald's lines, directly back to Scotland, among others. Already have more than 1,500 names typed into a PAF program, and several hundred submitted, so far. In March 2004, we traveled 325 miles to the nearest LDS temple (Orlando) where he received his endowments, and we did much work for his ancestors during the three days we were there. Our time there coincided with the youth of our Branch, and Ronald was able to baptize some of them for over 75 of his direct ancestors and their kin. We also performed a number of endowments and sealings, too with Ronald and I for his parents, wife, and other ancestors. Then I was proxy when his wife was sealed to him, and for his mother when he was sealed to his parents. All this has brought great joy to both of us, as we KNOW that the Lord brought us together so we could accomplish that great work. There is still MUCH more to complete during the rest of our lives, and we consider that we are on a Mission to this beautiful part of Florida, helping to build up the Lord's Kingdom here and aiding others in many ways. There are more LDS members in Florida than any other state east of the Mississippi River, and this area of Florida, especially our Panama City Stake, is one of the fastest growing in the state. It won't be too much longer than our little Branch will be a Ward, too. @2005 ~ ~ ~ ~ Address updated from Florida to Utah. @2010

Genevieve and Joe Lundell

Class of 1912~Honorary. Genevieve (Gen) Richardson Lundell. Gen Richardson was the first daughter born to Thomas and Eunice Lettie Hickman Richardson on July 7, 1894, in Benjamin, Utah. (She sometimes complained because her name was too long to fit on a signature line.) She was the fifth child born into the family. She had dark eyes and dark hair. We know very little of her early life, but it is positive that she worked hard being the oldest daughter in a large family. She was a very good student and recieved two special promotions in Elementry School, which made her too young at 8th grade graduation to go away to school. She stayed in Benjamin and attended 8th grade a second year. After that she attended Brigham Young Academy. Her father was active in the Democratic Party. Gen's brother Les said that their father said that the person his child married should be a Democrat first and Mormon second. She was nominated and elected to the office of Utah County Recorder for several terms. She held that position from 1918-1920 and then elected again from 1922-1926. She was still in public service at the time she married Frank Joseph (Joe) Lundell on April 2, 1924 in the Salt Lake Temple. During her stay in Provo, she had stayed with her Grandmother Hickman and her Aunt Laura. During 1917 or 1918 when many people died of complications from influenza she was very ill and had to have a nurse attend her. The nurse stole Gen's World War I war bonds, which were never recovered. She would never drive an automobile after the experience she had with her father's Model T. She stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake and almost went through a store window. Their first child was born January 24, 1925 at home. Joe wrote in his diary that day, "Baby was born 1:40 A.M." Gen was quite ill for awhile after the birth. Lottie Lou was born on January 20, 1930 also at home. Joe wrote another note: "Baby born 5:30 A.M." Gen was a very good and protective mother. She was a wonderful cook. The Depression caused them to lose some of their property and for many years their lives were spent working extra hard. She was always taking something to someone who needed help. As each of our Aunts had their babies or were ill, she thought she had to go to them and take food. Her sister Eunice was ill most of her life and she spent a lot of time with her. At the time our Grandmother passed away she took care of her in our home and spent much time in her home. They took their children to all of the parades around, and then to any fireworks at night. Gen and Joe lived on a farm and she worked very hard raising a garden and canning all kinds of fruits and vegetables. She liked to quilt and do hand sewing. She didn't like to sew on the sewing machine but when her girls started sewing she could help them figure out patterns and help them do the things that needed to be done. Lottie Lou married Clair Anderson, March 5, 1950. Gen wasn't a person who liked to be up in front of people taking part. She enjoyed doing secretary work. She was a secretary to the Relief Society, Primary, and YWMIA, both ward and stake. She also was the secretary to other organizations such as Utah Poultry, and was the Registrar of Vital Statistics for Benjamin. Joe and Gen had gotten over their financial difficulties and life was getting easier for them when Joe had a heart attack on October 11, 1951. Gen never got over the shock. She suffered a stroke the first part of December, and died December 16, 1951, two months after Joe. Doctor Stewart said that it was slight, she should have completely recovered, but she didn't have the will to live after Joe died. Giving a tribute to her at her funeral service one of her lifelong friends said, "She was a beautiful girl and she lived a beautiful life. She wasn't a person that went about and made a big show but she went about her life in her quiet, unassuming way, living her religion, and doing good. She was blessed with a keen sense of humor, which added to her personality. She set an example for life that is worthy of imitation."

Alan & Anna Lee Richens

Class of 1954. Alan G. Richens. Band, Fauvine Drummer, Spanish Club, Photography Club. BYU 1964. Lived in Salt Lake City, Utah, until moving to St. George, Utah. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Alan Grant Richens passed away peacefully on June 7, 2015, at the age of 78, in St. George, Utah. He was born in Los Angeles, California on November 11, 1936 to Dr. Grant Duke and Cleora Huntsman Richens. Dad was sincere in his passions, treasured his family, and was prone to a bit of playful mischief. His first memories are of living in Los Angeles during World War II and hearing the warning sirens indicating that a bomb raid was overhead. The family soon moved to Provo, Utah where Dad grew up on Cherry Lane at the foot of the Provo Mountains. He loved riding his horse up into the foothills. A graduate from Brigham Young High School, Class of 1954, he later attended Utah State University where he earned a Business degree. During this time, Dad earned his pilot's license and funded his education by teaching flying lessons. Flying was more than a job to dad as his flight log is full of entries for "scenic flight." Dad took great pride in serving his country, with multiple enlistments in the Utah Air National Guard. He was soon swept off his feet by Miss Franklin County, Anna Lee Fisher. They were married in the Logan Temple on March 8, 1963 and had three children. The most important things in Dad's life were his family, working hard, and doing things for others. He worked in the insurance business most of his life, owning an Allstate Agency. After moving to St. George, he went to work for his daughter-in-law, well past retirement age, at the Richens Eye Center. Getting up every day and having a purpose and a goal were very important to him. He had an entrepreneurial spirit and was always dreaming up big ideas - he always had a yellow notepad nearby to jot down notes. Spending time with family was always a priority. Dad set aside every Saturday night to take the family to Pizza Oven. He was at every baseball, softball and soccer game and always had an encouraging word. He is survived by his wife, Anna Lee, his children, David (Sharon), Suzanne (Rick) Pike, Doug (Jeanine), sister Joyce (Darrell) Graff, brother Don (Jean) Asay, eleven grandchildren, extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Myrna Larsen. Funeral services will be held Friday, June 12, 2015, 3 pm at the Spilsbury Mortuary, 110 S. Bluff St, St. George, Utah, with a viewing prior at 1 pm to 2:30 pm. Graveside services will be held Saturday, June 13, 2015, 3 pm at the Clifton, Idaho Cemetery. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the home health nurses and medical staff at Dixie Regional Medical Center who assisted him in his final days.
