Class of 1941. Ida Lucile Boyd. School Secretary after graduation. Ida Boyd. Opera. Fauvines. College Enrollment. ~ ~ ~ ~ Her parents: John David Boyd, Jr., and Hannah Peterson Boyd. John and Hannah had eleven children: John David Boyd, Emmet Lorain Boyd, Savie "V" Boyd Peay, Ida Boyd Reid [BYH Class of 1941], Mildred Boyd Arnold, Olive Bengta Boyd, Amelda (not Alameda) Boyd, George Edward Boyd, Lewis Hubbard Boyd, Byron Woodrow Boyd, Sr., and Sherman Boyd. ~ ~ ~ ~ TAMING THE WILD WEST. PROVO -- It's like visiting a wild West museum. Arvil and Ida Boyd Reid's home is a display of mementos from Utah's law enforcement history. An old revolver, sheriff's badges and a banjo that belonged to Ida's father, John D. Boyd, adorn the home. Ida Reid is proud of her heritage as the daughter of one of Utah County's first and finest sheriffs. Growing up in the rugged terrain of southern Arizona, Boyd learned the ways of the wild West from his father, John Boyd Sr., the deputy sheriff of Cochise County, Ariz. Tombstone was the county seat. By the age of 23, John Boyd Jr. was working for his father in defending the peace of the West. His first assignment from his father, who deputized his son, was one that would make him famous. Boyd was assigned to chase a stagecoach robber named Jackson, the last reported stagecoach robbery in the state. Fearlessly, Boyd and his companions followed the trail of the robber through the southeastern Arizona desert moving from ranch to ranch. They found an old run-down cabin with a horse tied to a post. Suspecting this might be the hideout of Jackson, Boyd and his men circled the cabin and waited for Jackson to surface. They didn't have to wait long as the door opened and out of the dark shadows stepped a dark-bearded, dirty man holding a set of saddlebags in one hand and a Winchester rifle in the other. Boyd demanded the man drop his rifle and Jackson instead immediately lifted the rifle to his shoulder. Before Jackson could pull the trigger, Boyd fired his six-shooter and with amazing precision grazed Jackson in the shoulder with a round. Jackson fell to the ground in pain and the chase was over. For the next three days and nights Jackson was handcuffed to Boyd in order to prevent his escape. Boyd felt jail was not a safe enough place for Jackson. Jackson's brother trailed Boyd for many years seeking vengeance for Jackson's imprisonment. Boyd's early life was much like an old television western series. One day he'd be after Butch Cassidy and his men and the next he would be warding off Indian attacks and building friendships with them in Apache. Near the end of his life he said, "Television doesn't begin to tell the adventures of the Old West as we lived them. I guess I'm about the only old timer left who remembers the sagas of the Apache Kid, the Wham robbery and the other thrilling adventures of the Arizona frontier." His life was filled with excitement and adventure, but Boyd was more than just a gun-slinging cowboy. He was a devoted family man. On July 1, 1899, J.D. Boyd married Hannah Peterson in Mammoth, Utah. They became the parents of 11 children. Their daughter, Ida, recalls the memories of her father, who was so well respected he was re-elected to the Utah County Sheriff's Office three straight terms and won the popular vote in both parties. While Boyd was serving as the Utah County Sheriff from 1920-30 the Boyd family lived in a big white house that once stood next door to the current courthouse. Ida recalls how convicts would stop by the house right after being let out of jail to thank Boyd for the advice and support he gave them. "He was so kind to everyone and he believed in 'hating the sin, while loving the sinner,'" Reid said. "There was always a house full of people. Mom and Dad wouldn't let a tramp go by without feeding them." When Ida was 10 years old, her family moved into a house on 500 North across from the old Brigham Young Academy and they have lived there ever since. Ida spoke of the hardships her family faced during her early years. Her sister, Amelda, was diagnosed with glaucoma behind both eyes at the age of 1. Three years later, Amelda was buried after an attempted life-saving surgery. Other hardships awaited the family as an older brother went to fight in World War I at the age of 17. One year later, on his 18th birthday, he was returned home as the first casualty of the war from Utah County. Although he was always busy catching bootleggers and bandits, Boyd had time to take his family on trips to Arizona and Mexico, where he was recognized all along the trail. In his older years he would gather the family around and play his banjo and sing in his Irish brogue. Reid remembers how Boyd would sit at her bedside and tell stories of the wild West. She had a tear in her eye as she remembered, "Dad walked to work in a five-beaver Stetson hat. I can still see him walking down the street in his overcoat and Stetson. He was a very dignified man whose handshake was as good as his word." [By David D. Farnsworth, Provo Daily Herald September 18, 1999.] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Ida Lucile Boyd Reid, beautiful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, passed on to her heavenly home on Saturday, December 9, 2006 encircled in love by her family. Ida's first and foremost love was the happiness of her family. She was married to Arvil Shields Reid on November 4, 1942 in her family home in Provo, Utah, and then later sealed in the Manti LDS Temple on July 1, 1952. Ida is survived by her loyal and loving husband, Arvil, who cared for her and was by her side continuously throughout the years. She was also survived by her sister, Mildred Arnold (Earl) of Las Vegas, Nevada, and two daughters, Leslie Ann Reid Gledhill (Michael) of Provo, Utah and Becky Sue Reid Dayton (Bruce) of Roseville, California. They have 11 grandchildren and 2 2/3 great- grandchildren, who were her little treasures. She was so proud of all their accomplishments and was the most proactive mother and grandmother in the world. We know that her influence will not end. ~ ~ Ida was the 11th child of Hannah Peterson and John David Boyd, born Dec 3, 1922 in Heber City, Utah. She idolized her mother and father, keeping their stories alive in pictures and books. Ida's life revolved around her love of music. She took the lead in several BY High School operettas. She graduated from BY High in 1941. She was the first president of Provo Chauntenetts and a member of the first Cougarette Quartette of BYU. She was involved as ward and stake chorister and was a member of the Geneva Steel Chorus. Ida played the part of "Sister Irvine", secretary to LDS President Lorenzo Snow, in the movie, "Windows of Heaven." She was a member of the Provo Women's Council and the National Secretaries Association. While Arvil was serving in WWII she worked at Geneva Steel, then as BY High Secretary and as an elementary secretary for the Provo School District for almost 18 years. She also loved making porcelain dolls. In her own words she said "Some of my favorite things are raising my two beautiful, talented daughters and being a part of their lives, tending and being with my sweet grandchildren, and trips with Arvil." Her family will miss her more than words can express, and will look forward to seeing her again someday, knowing that families are forever. Funeral services were held on Wednesday, December 13, 2006 in Provo, Utah. Interment, Santaquin City Cemetery. [Provo Daily Herald, December 11, 2006.]

[As of October 2, 1994] ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Lloynel Maurice Harding was born September 12, 1921 and died at his home on June 28, 2008. Lloynel led a life worthy of "The Greatest Generation" of which he is part. Born in Provo, Utah, Lloynel was the oldest child of Marva Booth and Maurice Harding. He was left motherless at 1 1/2 years old when Marva died, along with his infant sister, following complications with child birth. When not at his father's home he spent much of his youth with his grandparents on their farm in west Provo. He had many fond memories of them and playing on the stream that ran through their property, which later became the GRA park. Although his mother had passed away, he had much love from his aunts and uncles as he was growing up. Lloynel is survived by his wife Carol; daughter Suzanne Harding McMullen; son Richard and wife Lyle Harding, and sons Phillip Pecoraro (wife Tiffany, daughters Sophie and Berkly,) and Patrick Pecoraro; son Paul Harding and his partner Brett Vuksinick; grandson Cody C. McMullen; grandson Brock C. and wife Jennifer McMullen and great grandson Titan Brock McMullen; brother Neil Harding and his wife Beverly; sister Marjorie and husband Charles Donnelly; sister Liane Harding; sisters-in-law Madge (Robert Harding) and Orva (Bruce Harding); aunt Grace Smith; and many nieces, nephews, and friends. Lloynel graduated from Brigham Young High where he was a gifted athlete playing most sports but excelling at basketball and track. He graduated from BYU in 1948 with a degree in political science. Lloynel enlisted and served his country during WWII from 1941 to 1945. He served with the 779th EPD Company in China, Burma, and India and drove the Burma Road. He met and made many lifetime friends and frequently attended army reunions. Sadly, one of the last survivors of his company, with Lloynel's death we lose yet another witness of that historic time. Lloynel met Carol Cummings after returning from his military service. They were married in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 26, 1947. Lloynel and Carol established their home in Orem. His career was steelmaking at the Geneva Steel Mill. Lloynel retired as a general foreman in 1983 after working 33 years on the blast furnaces. Lloynel had an enthusiasm for life and shared it with the people he loved. He was first and foremost about his family and the family vacation was Lloynel at his best. Vacations could be anything from a road trip to Yosemite with his wife and three children in a Pontiac station wagon in 1960 to more elaborate adventures which involved hauling a 5th wheel trailer and a 17-foot Bellboy boat to Lake Powell. Carol, his three children and his two grandsons all have memories of their favorite trips with him. Lloynel also enjoyed deer hunting the South Fork of Provo Canyon, fishing Strawberry and Flaming Gorge, bowling, rock collecting, gardening and sneaking table scraps to the family dogs. Carol and Lloynel loved playing cards. They could spend the day playing cribbage or stay up late into the night playing pinochle with anyone brave enough to offer a challenge. Those that met Lloynel later in life never knew the strong and vigorous man he was most of his life, instead they knew a gentle, kind and quiet man. Those listening closely enjoyed Lloynel's great sense of humor which he didn't reveal unless he knew you well. Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, July 2, 2008, at the Provo City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family has requested donations to a charity of your choice.

Marian Swenson

Class of 1941. Marian Owens. Editor, Wildcat Yearbook 1941. Fauvines, President. Forensics. Notre Maison. Student Newspaper Staff. Commercial Contest. She married _______ Swenson. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: On April 6, 2008, Marian Owens Swenson surrendered herself to the loving arms of her Creator, after a series of setbacks related to a rare blood disorder. Marian was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on January 23, 1925, to James Alfred Owens and Martha Minerva Hinckley. From her earliest days, Marian excelled in educational pursuits. She graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1941. She earned a Bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University, where she majored in English and minored in French. After college, her path led to married and family life, and she is survived by her accomplished son, Gordon, and best friend and loving daughter, Adrienne. Marian had a rich tapestry of cultural interests that included attending performances of the Utah Symphony, Ballet West, and the Utah Opera. Through many years, her dear sister, Darlene Owens Ball, was her companion for many of these events. As their lives gained depth and complexity, Marian and Darlene began traveling abroad together. Before her traveling days were behind her, Marian had visited London, Paris, Sweden, China, Peru, Ireland, Russia, New York, Spain, and others. Russia held an especially poignant spot in Mom's heart. She studied the often tragic history of the land and people, and grieved for the unrelenting oppression and hardships they endured, while marveling at their strength of spirit, and cultural excellence. She admired the Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies. Witnessing Rudolph Nureyev dance in London, and Mikhail Baryshnikov dance in New York, were highlights of her life that she never tired of remembering. Mom was deeply affected by her sister Darlene's death several decades ago, and missed her every day following her loss. Many decades of Mom's life were dedicated to service in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Utah. Though she excelled in all aspects of her career, her favorite responsibility was counseling and guiding students. The care and concern she showed each student was validated as many of them came back to thank her years or decades later, bringing pictures of kids and grandkids, and regaling her with stories of career and family following their successful completion of University life. In the last decades of her journey on this earth, Marian became very close to her daughter Adrienne. As her physical form began to betray her, bringing some of the sadness and confusion that aging can bring, their relationship took on new meaning. They worked hard to clear the issues of the past and find new ways to enrich each others' souls. As her body waned, Marian's spirit took on a radiance and strength that will never be forgotten by anyone who knew her. Hand in hand with Adrienne, Marian continued to embrace new ways of living and loving based on spirit and purpose, despite circumstance. She died filled with the same remarkable love and courage that marked her very special life. "Mom, I love you with all my heart, and feel you here with me. You have changed me, encouraged me, forgiven me, loved me, and enriched me beyond measure. You will remain my beloved, tender-hearted Mom and dearest friend forever." A wake service for family and friends was held on Thursday, April 17, 2008 at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City. [Deseret News, Sunday, April 13, 2008.]

Lloyd came to BYH from North Sanpete H.S. ~ ~ ~ ~ Provo Mayor Lewis Billings, in a speech on Friday, 18 January 2008, singled out Lloyd "Ras" and Nadine Rasmussen as an example of Provo's best quality residents. The couple met in 1941 when Lloyd was a basketball player for Brigham Young High and Nadine was a cheerleader for Provo High School. A near collision during a game eventually brought them together. "They said, 'Well, they've got the cutest cheerleaders,' " Lloyd said he was told by his friends. "And she was a cute one." ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS DEATH NOTICE: Lloyd Evan Rasmussen, age 88, of Provo, passed away March 23, 2011. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, April 1, 2011 at the Bonneville 4th Ward Chapel, 1289 East 300 South, Provo. Friends may call at the Berg Mortuary of Provo, 185 East Center, Thursday evening from 6 until 8 and at the church Friday one hour prior to services. Interment, Provo City Cemetery. [Provo Daily Herald, March 27, 2011.] ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Lloyd Evan Rasmussen, 88, passed away peacefully at the home of his son Garth Rasmussen in Henderson, Nevada on March 23, 2011. He was born on March 21, 1923 in Fairview, Utah to Wilford Woodruff Rasmussen and Matilda Winkelmann Rasmussen. After spending his childhood years in Fairview, his family moved to Provo, Utah. He attended Brigham Young High School where he was an outstanding athlete in football, basketball, and baseball, graduating in the Class of 1941. In fact, it was at a BY High vs. Provo High rivalry game where he met his future wife, Nadine Farr. Lloyd was playing basketball for BY High and Nadine was a cheerleader for Provo High. Lloyd was dribbling down the sideline when Nadine accidentally tripped him. As they both tell it, that's where he first fell for her, and they've been in love ever since. They married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on September 23 1943. He served in the Army and was stationed overseas during World War II. He graduated from LDS Business College in Salt Lake City and then worked as an accountant for the U.S. Steel Geneva Plant until his retirement. Always active in the LDS Church, he has served in a variety of positions including being a counselor in two bishoprics. During many years as a scoutmaster and a baseball coach, he was a positive influence in the lives of many young men. Lloyd and his wife Nadine served in the London England South Mission and have also served as temple workers in the Provo LDS Temple. Lloyd and Nadine have four children: Susan Green, Santa Fe, New Mexico; Meridee Williams and husband Lind, Provo, Utah; Garth L. Rasmussen and wife Kathy, Henderson, Nevada; and Shaun F. Rasmussen and wife Susan, Eldorado Hills, California. They have 18 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. Lloyd is preceded in death by his parents and all of his siblings: Harold, Merlin, Elden, and Leah. He is survived by his wife Nadine. Perhaps his most lasting legacy is his complete selflessness and tender regard for all that knew him. One could not visit their home without Lloyd inviting them to eat, and one could not eat without Lloyd coaxing them to eat more. Neighbors, family, friends, and strangers all benefited from his sharing attitude. He took a personal interest in, and was a friend, to everyone he met. He loved BYU sports, and he loved to fish, boat, hike, and camp. When camping, he took the time to get to know every stranger he met, and he could tell you the name, hometown, and a personal story about everyone in the campground within a couple of hours after setting up camp. His children, grandchildren, and great grand-children will forever remember his tender heart, the smile on his face, and the tears of gratitude in his eyes. Funeral services will be held on Friday, April 1 at 11:00 a.m. at the Bonneville 4th Ward Chapel, 1285 East 300 South, in Provo. Family and friends may call on Thursday evening, March 31 at the Berg Mortuary, 185 East Center Street in Provo or at a viewing at the church one hour prior to the funeral services. Interment will be in the Provo City Cemetery following the services.

For the three and a half years prior to this she had been living under the loving care of her son and daughter-in-law Garth and Kathy Rasmussen in Henderson, Nevada. Nadine was born on November 20, 1923 in Tucson, Arizona to Heber Erastus Farr and Hilda Bluth Farr. She was second-youngest of the twenty-three children of Heber Farr. She had ten brothers and sisters, and, in addition, twelve half-brothers and sisters from Hebers first wife Elizabeth. Of her numerous siblings, she is survived by only two sisters: Yvonne Farr Morgan and Azona Farr Lloyd. She was preceded in death by her parents and her siblings: Halvan, Maybelle, Deral, Winnifred, Josephine, Keith, Ivan, and Lawrence. From Tucson her family moved to Pleasant Grove, Utah and then later to Provo where Nadine lived most of her life. It was at Provo High School as a cheerleader that she met her husband-to-be, Lloyd Rasmussen. As the family story goes, Lloyd, a basketball star for the rival B.Y. High Wildcats, was dribbling near the sideline where Nadine, the P.H.S cheerleader stepped inbounds and accidentally tripped him. As they both tell the story, thats where Lloyd first fell for her, and they were in love ever since. They married in the Salt Lake L.D.S. Temple on September 23, 1943, and after Lloyds military service, they made their home in Provo, living among many of the same neighborhood friends for over 60 years. Lloyd and Nadine are the parents of four children: Susan Green, Santa Fe, New Mexico; Meridee Williams and husband Lind, Provo, Utah; Garth L. Rasmussen and wife Kathy, San Jose, California; and Shaun F. Rasmussen and wife Susan, Eldorado Hills, California. They have 18 grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren. She was a skilled cook, seamstress, and homemaker. Always caring and capable, she could make curtains for her home or rescue a wedding dress mishap at the last minute. She loved family get-togethers, and reunions. She was an organizer and ensured that gatherings with Farr and Rasmussen cousins and aunts and uncles were happy and memorable. Her home was always the fun place to be at Christmas, Thanksgiving, and the Fourth of July, not only for her children and grandchildren, but usually with many other invitees included as part of the family. Her holiday traditions will be passed on for generations, although her delicious potato salad recipe will never be replicated and will go with her into the next world. What a great Farr Family Reunion that will be. Her life demonstrated that memories and traditions are built from love and togetherness. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She lived a beautiful life. Always active and involved in the LDS church, Nadine faithfully fulfilled numerous ward and stake leadership callings. She and her husband Lloyd served in the London England South Mission and have served as Temple Workers in the Provo LDS Temple. Nadine led an exemplary life, full of kindness, generosity, and service to her family, her neighbors, and her church. She had a knack for making everyone her friend and making friends feel like family. Her family would like to thank the tender kindness and concern provided by the Compassion Care Hospice in Henderson, Nevada and the Maple Creek Hospice in Utah Valley. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, August 22 at the Bonneville 4th Ward Chapel, 1289 East 300 South, Provo, Utah.
