Class of 1938. James R. "Dod" Boshard. Tennis. Boys' Athletic Club. BYU BS Geology 1949. ~ ~ ~ ~ PART OF ACCOUNT OF HIS GRANDMOTHER: On January twenty seventh 1886, I [Sarah M. Boyden Boshard] married John Henry Boshard in the Logan Temple in Utah. We lived in a two-roomed house belonging to his brother Dolph [Boshard]. In the same summer the house burned down, so we moved over to the corner of first north and fifth east for a short time. In October of the same year we moved close to Mother in the Meldrum house. Our first child was born there. -- Clarence was born on the fourth of November. The next spring we moved over into Grandmother Boshard's house and stayed there until we could build our own home. -- James Rudolf Boshard was born while we were still living at Grandmother's. He was born January twentieth 1889. [Note: He married Nellie Jones, then he died February 3, 1920, at about the age of 31.] We built two rooms in 1890 and moved into our own home. -- February twenty-sixth 1891 Marie was born. I nearly lost my life with septecemia. The Elders administered to me and the poison left me and entered Brother Bennet's arm and I got well again. In 1892 my husband was called on a mission to Switzerland. I was left with three children, two boys and a girl. While Harry was away on this mission, I took a nursing course, which helped me a great deal in raising my family. In the fall of that same year, I was seriously ill with typhus fever. They had to send for Harry. Apostle J. W. Taylor and White of Salt Lake opened a mission in Denver. And in December 1895, Harry was again called on the mission field to Denver. In the fall of 1895 my husband went on a tour with a quartette. They traveled all through Utah, singing for the Republican party for six weeks they sang Govenor Wells into the chair. -- On the tenth of April 1896 Casper LeRoy was born. -- Next in 1898 twenty second of May, Arnold was born. -- Viola Meredith Nov. 8, 1900 -- Geneveive Apr. 22, 1903 -- Hayden Boyden Aug. 31, 1905 -- Erma Elaine Oct. 25, 1907 -- Paul Lowell Feb. 28, 1910 -- Edna Sept. 19, 1912 ~~ In the year of 1912 my last daughter was born. I was now the mother of twelve children. Six girls and six boys. In 1814 I took up nursing and I made lots of nice friends. I had splended success with my nursing, in all the time I was nursing I never lost a mother, and only one baby and that was caused by the baby being born with cancer. I helped to bring seventy one babies into this world. During the first winter after the first World War [on February 3, 1920], I lost my son Dod, with the flu. He left a widow [Nellie Jones Boshard] and three children, Maxine, Verda, and the baby James Rudolph. That was a terrible winter everywhere. Every one had the flu, and there were many who died with it. ~~ Sarah M. Boshard.

She resides in Salt Lake City. @2006 ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Elaine Holbrook Haymore. August 11, 1920 ~ April 22, 2015, at age 94. Alsina Elaine Holbrook Haymore passed away peacefully with family by her side on April 22, 2015. She was born in Provo, Utah on August 11, 1920 to Alsina Elizabeth Brimhall and Lafayette Hinckley Holbrook. Elaine was born the youngest of 11 children in Provo, Utah where she was much loved by her parents and eight doting sisters and two brothers. Known as “Tiddlywinks” by her dad and one of the “three little kids”, she had fond memories of attending Brigham Young High School, Class of 1938, while living in the clinker brick house, and was taught to cherish her pioneer ancestry and LDS Church membership. After a semester at Brigham Young University she married John Arnold Haymore and moved several times before they finally settled in Salt Lake City, Utah. She lived at her present address for 65 years. The center of Elaine’s life has always been her children. Each of her seven sons and six daughters has been a blessed event for her, a fulfilling of her purpose on earth. And to them, she gave her full time and devotion. During the four years in California Valerie was born during World War II. Desiring to be in a safer environment, the family moved to Salt Lake City where all other children were born, spanning 22 years of her life. All sons experienced opportunities for work both in construction and paper routes. All daughters learned homemaking and secretarial skills. Education was strongly promoted in this family and all of the children either graduated or attended some years of university by having part-time jobs and scholarships, married in the temple, and all sons served missions for the LDS Church. After her divorce, Elaine worked as a secretary at various offices including many years at the LDS Church office building, to support the children remaining at home. Elaine’s church callings included teacher and temple ordinance worker. She will be remembered as the one who handed out programs at church during her final years, enduring well to the end. Even though she was limited in hearing she managed to comprehend what was said at church, often reading lips and body language to do so. With a ready smile and encouraging pat on the arm, she greeted everyone even to a few hours before her quiet passing. Always conveying her interest in those around her, she wanted little of possessions, but cherished relationships. She did so love lilacs and walks, and photos of grandchildren, and holding hands and chocolates. Her legacy to her numerous posterity will be one of faith in Jesus Christ, be forgiving, listen to the Holy Ghost, and remember your baptismal covenants to help others on their way. What a gift this mother, grandmother, aunt, and sister was. We let her go reluctantly but joyfully look forward to a reunion someday. Elaine is survived by her children, Valerie Jueschke (Bill), Daniel Haymore (Sondra), Gloria Pehrson (David), John Haymore (Bonnie), Douglas Haymore (Tricia), Sylvia Hunter (Ron), Bruce Haymore (Michele), Rosalee Sotomayor (Larry), Joseph Haymore, David Haymore (Barbara), Carolee Cannon, Cyndi Cross (Greg), Mark Haymore. She is further blessed by 67 grandchildren, 115 great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild. She was preceded in death by four grandsons, Shawn Birtcher, Michael Haymore, J. David Mitchell, and Nathan Haymore. Funeral services were held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Valley View 6th Ward, 2000 East 3900 South. Interment, Provo City Cemetery.
