Ashworth family and Al Gaudio. Ashworth, a local attorney, owns one of the nation's largest private historical collections. Ashworth is the museum's director and curator. His family has been collecting Scouting memorabilia since 1913. The highlight of his scouting career, however, has been that his seven sons have become Eagle Scouts. Some know him for his collecting and sharing experiences with church historical documents. He says he is most proud of his wonderful wife and eternal companion, Charlene Mills Ashworth and their great family. Brent Ashworth is a member of the Provo Landmarks Commission, and great-nephew of Claude Ashworth, who designed St. Francis of Assisi Catholic church in Provo, which was torn down on July 9, 2007. The destruction came as an "absolute shock", said Brent. "It's a total shock. It seems like a death in the family," said Ashworth, who also owns B. Ashworth's Rare Books in downtown Provo. "The Catholic Church wanted the Landmarks Commission to remove the historic landmark designation, but we voted that down. But the Provo Municipal Council cut a deal with the developer." @2010

Lee Bartlett

Brigham Young Academy Foundation Member. New leader with old ties takes position at helm of Academy Foundation -- PROVO -- Involvement in Academy Square is a hat Lee Bartlett first put on in 1948. Now, almost 50 years later, Bartlett has taken that hat from the attic, dusted it off, straightened its brim and slung it atop his head for another round. And it's no surprise that it still fits, he said. Brigham Young Academy Foundation officials have elected Bartlett their new president. Bartlett replaces Wally Raynor, who moved to China for a teaching job. With Bartlett as president, the foundation will continue to overlook the construction of a new city library at Academy Square. "I have my hands full maintaining the caliber of leadership that has been really quite marvelous under Wally Raynor, " Bartlett said. Bartlett first showed up at the Academy in 1948 as a Brigham Young University freshman studying art. After graduation, he left for 30 years to pursue a field in advertising in various states, including Illinois, Washington and California. Ten years ago, Bartlett returned to Provo and found an Academy Square no longer owned by BYU. "I was just a bemused onlooker as I read about the efforts to find a happy answer to the Academy Square dilemma, " he said. And then two years ago, Bartlett was invited to join a committee that aimed to combine the Provo City Library and the vacant Academy Square education building to create that happy ending. This month, Bartlett climbed to the helm and took control as president of BYAF, where he said he will help overlook the project and make sure the interests of the foundation are taken into consideration. "Lee is so interested and has been so helpful in this process, " said L. Doug Smoot, project chair. "I can't tell you how excited I am that he accepted this opportunity to serve." Bartlett is currently the vice president for university communication at BYU. "He's an excellent leader and he represents any organization he works for so well," said Dean Hughes, member of the Library and the Foundation board of directors. "He's a good speaker, writer and communicator and I think he will represent the organization very well." The Foundation, in coalition with the library board, developed the plan that lead Provo voters to approve a $16.8 million bond that will help pay for a renovated library at Academy Square. The foundation raised the other $5 million needed to cover the cost of the project. After construction is complete near the middle 2000, the foundation will still exist, Bartlett said. "We intend to keep the historical legacy alive and continue to render useful services in preserving the heritage of the Academy," he said. [Provo Daily Herald, December 01, 1997.]

BYA Foundation Member. Viva Maurine Jones Brimhall, civic and church leader, born February 10, 1915, in Provo, Utah to Ivie H. and Lorin F. Jones, died in her Orem home, Sat., May 5, 2001. Maurine was the eldest and last surviving of four children: Ray L. Jones, Mae La Vieve Sudweeks, and William Elbert Jones. Her family moved to Las Vegas, New Mexico in 1920, and it is in that environment that she grew up, attending Las Vegas public schools and New Mexico Normal University. To help with college expenses, Maurine designed and made Chimayo Indian Sport Coats for Charles Ilfield Company. To further her education, Maurine attended BYU in 1932, graduating in 1935. She married Wells Smoot Brimhall September 9, 1935 in the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah and moved to New York City where her husband attended Columbia College. She worked at Teachers College, a subsidiary of Columbia University. Maurine was active in civic affairs with the PTA, The Lady Kiwanians and the 4-H Clubs (she started the first 4-H club in Provo, and at a younger age, won trips to Chicago and Washington, D. C.).

She represented Utah at a National Convention on Children and Youth in Washington D. C. (1960) and at a National Safety Conference in San Francisco. She was appointed by Utah's Governor to serve on a 12-member committee on children and youth. Maurine had a talented gift for music, playing the piano and marimba, and also producing many delightful compositions as a special occasion song writer for family, community and church affairs. During the late 1930's and early 1940's schooling and employment took Maurine and Smoot from Utah to California to New York to Illinois and back again to Provo. There she brought up her family until 1965 when she moved to Salt Lake City, living there for about 20 years before returning to Utah Valley.

Brigham Young Academy Foundation Members, and Distinguished Honorary Alumni of Brigham Young High School. Monroe J. Paxman & Shirley Ann Brockbank Paxman. Shirley Paxman is now deceased. ~ ~ ~ ~ Although Monroe and Shirley Paxman did not attend BY High School, many of their children did. They did not teach at BYH, except by good example. They performed an instrumental role in saving the Brigham Young Academy building. "We grieved about it [the Brigham Young Academy block] being sold. I wrote lots of letters," remembers Shirley. "And when the lawn and trees were dying, my husband, Monroe, repaired the sprinkling system and we paid the water bill. For 25 years I've worked with every mayor and developer." Their leadership and perseverance have once again made the historic Academy Square a revered Provo landmark. Shirley Brockbank Paxman received her B.S. and M.S. from BYU in Child Development and Family Relations. She received her R.N. from Holy Cross Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Smoot Public Service Award. "When I recognize someone, I have to think twice about saying anything," he once said. "The context may be from my former courtroom, and some folks don't want to recognized for that." Monroe and Shirley Paxman have co-authored numerous magazine articles and several books. In 1942, Shirley married Monroe J. Paxman, who became a Juvenile Court Judge in Provo, Utah. They have seven children and twenty-four grandchildren.

[Provo Daily Herald, Saturday, December 19, 2015] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Shirley Ann Brockbank Paxman Obituary - 1919 ~ 2015. Shirley Ann Brockbank was born third child to Isaac and Elsie Booth Brockbank and grew up with her eight sisters at 59 West 500 North in Provo, Utah. She debuted on December 10, 1919 and died in her sleep on December 17, 2015, a week after her 96th birthday. She married Monroe J. Paxman on December 18, 1942 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They have lived in Wichita, Kansas; Salt Lake City; Reno, Nevada; Urbana, Illinois; Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany; Izmir, Turkey; Frankfurt, Germany; and Provo, where they spent most of their life together. Shirley was a registered nurse, an avid reader, a community organizer, a school board president, a traveler, a museum director, and she lived exuberantly. She once stood in front of a moving bulldozer to block it from demolishing Provo's Academy Square because she knew funding was on its way to save the building. Born with an abundance of energy and creative ideas, she always had a project or a cause. She enjoyed hosting gatherings and parties, creating magical experiences, writing books, working in historic preservation, giving speeches, and sharing her opinions. She was unconventional and ready to speak out, a strong, enthusiastic feminist, a mentor, and an advocate for the underprivileged. She trained at Holy Cross Hospital in Salt Lake City before her marriage and grew to love the Catholic sisters and the rosary. Her religious involvement was ecumenical. She served well all her life in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but sometimes referred to herself as Catholic Mormon and was involved with the Episcopal Church as well. She found God and truth in many places. Through it all, she expressed her love for and faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She drew on traditions from diverse religions and cultures as she and her husband Monroe raised their seven children. She celebrated holidays with gusto, created costumes, baked and decorated thousands of sugar cookies, belonged to various social clubs and historical societies, and included many people in her entertaining. Shirley lived by Gibran's words, "Work is love made visible." Her compassionate heart fueled her personal and civic service. She worked to make things better for people she cared about, whether they were family, immigrants, foreign diplomats, college students, or merely lonely. It was no small thing if Shirley was in your corner; her support was palpable. She and Pax loved to welcome people to their family cabin at Wildwood, let them use the inner tubes, swing on the swings, lie in the hammock, or play in the water, and Shirley cooked abundant meals to feed them. She hosted speakers and musical programs for groups of friends. She and Monroe served on several local and university advisory boards. Shirley frequently laughed at the humor in life and was a good storyteller; she was no stranger to hyperbole and often exaggerated her children's good qualities and accomplishments. She was also a master of typographical errors in her weekly family letters. She and Pax have been generous grandparents who took care of kids with aplomb and enjoyment. Wet feet and dirty hands weren't worth worrying about; craft projects, hammering nails into wood, hiking, and imaginative play were encouraged. A capable woman of many talents, Shirley sewed, knitted, sketched, decorated, and quilted; she refinished furniture and collected antiques as well as Noah's arks, nativities, Santa Clauses, family traditions, ideas, articles, and books. She and Pax hiked for decades and co-authored a Utah Valley hiking guide. Lifelong supporters of the arts, they attended concerts, lectures, and plays regularly until Shirley fell and broke two vertebrae three weeks before her death. As her short-term memory faded, one of her most common statements was, "We count our blessings." Her next line was always, "I still have my husband!" A few years ago she said, "I have very few regrets. I've had stability, excitement--a fantastic life." We love our mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, and her passion for life will continue to inspire us. Preceding Shirley in death were her sisters Ila Peterson, Helen Weech, Elinor Brimhall, Pat Fillmore, Kay Webber, her daughter Mary Beth McGee, and her grandson David Thomas. She is survived by her dream-facilitating husband Monroe "Pax", her sisters Carol Olson, Nancy Livingston, Joyce Beazer, and her children John and Petrina Lee Poy Paxman (Montreal), Carolyn and Marion T. Bentley (Logan), David and Kathryn Pope Hoopes Paxman (Mapleton), Nancy and Peter Thomas (Sun Valley), Annette and Scott Bowen (Seattle), and Susie and David Hatch (Chicago) as well as by numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Visitation will be held Monday, December 21 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Berg Mortuary, 185 East Center Street, Provo, and Tuesday, December 22 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Provo Peak Third Ward, 510 East 200 North, Provo. The funeral will begin Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. at the same church.
