Source: The Evening Herald, Provo, Utah, May 28, 1930. ~ ~ ~ ~ Bessie Burch was born on December 2, 1910 in Spanish Fork, Utah. Her parents were Claudius Hilton Burch and Annie Ferguson Burch. Bessie married Arlington Russell Mortensen on November 26, 1934. His parents were Arlington Peter Mortensen and Fanny (Fannie) Burnham Mortensen. Bessie Burch Mortensen died on July 30, 1950 in Pasadena, California. Her interment, San Bernardino, California. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER HUSBAND'S BIO: Dividing his time between Utah and California, A. Russell Mortensen spent his early professional years as a teacher, administrator and editor. Born in Salt Lake City to Arlington Peter and Fannie Burnham Mortensen on January 30, 1911, he was raised in southern California. Mortensen returned to Utah in the early 1930s to attend Brigham Young University. While there he met and married Bessie Burch, a native of Spanish Fork, Utah. After receiving a B. S. in history in 1937 Mortensen became principal of the Garfield County Cannonville School for one year. The Mortensens spent two years in California while he worked on a masters' degree, awarded in 1940 from the University of California at Los Angeles, before returning to Utah. For the next six years Mortensen was a history instructor at Provo High School. His teaching was interrupted during World War II when he served in the Pacific Theatre as a Naval Communications Officer. Following the war, the couple again returned to California and Mortensen returned to the U.C.L.A. campus. For the next four years Mortensen worked toward a doctorate in history acting as a Teaching Assistant at U.C.L.A. and later as an instructor of U.S. and Latin American History at San Bernardino Valley College. While in San Bernardino, Mortensen continued his association with the U.S. Navy as the Assistant Training Officer at the U.S. Naval Reserve Training Center. A. Russell Mortensen received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1950. In that same year [1950] his wife, Bessie, died following the birth of their sixth child. With this blow Mortensen removed his family to Utah where he accepted the position of Director of the Utah Historical Society and editor of its journal Utah Historical Quarterly. During his eleven years as director he wrote a number of articles for the Utah Historical Quarterly, other journals, and local newspapers. In 1958 the book Among the Mormons, co-authored with William Mulder, was published. It was also during these years that he married Florence Page. In 1961 Mortensen became director of the University of Utah Press, and Professor of History and Library Science at the university. The Western History Association and the university were sponsoring a new quarterly journal, the American West, for which Mortensen served as editor between 1962 and 1967. While editor, his second wife died and he married Dorothy Zackrison Summerhays. Following his resignation as editor of the American West due to a controversy over his possible conflict of interest as a stockholder in the new American West Publishing Company, Mortensen continued to teach at the University of Utah. He was also a visiting professor at the University of Alabama. During his years with the university he was involved in other historical projects. In 1969 he served as a member of the board of the Utah Historic Survey Committee. With sketches done by Carlos Andreson, the University of Utah Press published Mortensen's Early Utah Sketches in 1970. Between 1970 and 1976 Mortensen worked in Washington, D. C. with the National Park Service as Assistant and then Chief Historian. He was also the director of the NPS Historic Site Preservation Program and an Advisory Board Member for the "State and the National Bicentennial Series." The American Association for State and Local History, for which he has served as Council Member, General Editor, Secretary, and President, presented him with an Award of Distinction, for his work in the historical field, in 1979. This one joined his awards for the American West, the Joint Award of Merit with the Utah Historical Society, and his award as co-author of Among the Mormons. Throughout his career, Mortensen served with a number of Utah groups including the Family Service Society, the State Parks Commission, the State Library Commission and the Utah Folklore Society. He was also a member of professional and special interest organizations which include the Western History Association, the American Association for State and Local History, Utah Westerners' Club and the Utah Sons of Pioneers.

Wildcat Yearbook Assistant Editor 2, Yearbook Editor 3. Y'ld Cat newspaper staff 2. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Lois Burch Morgan ~ 1930-2020. Lois Burch Morgan passed away at her home Saturday morning, April 25th, 2020. She was born on Friday, June 20th, 1930, in the front room of their Gothic Revival family home at 33 North 600 West in Provo, to Pearl Estella Bradford Burch and William Hilton Burch. She was the last of seven children including Dean, Hilton, Garth, Fae, Bill, and George. Lois was a “daddy’s girl” sitting on her father’s knee at dinner time because there were no more available chairs. She was also highly independent and, at age 11, she walked downtown to Heindselman’s and took their knitting class. She then came home and taught her mother to knit. While attending BY Elementary School, Lois was busy candling eggs and preparing them for sale in the family poultry business. Lois attended Franklin Junior High and BY High, where she excelled academically, and was involved in multiple activities, including serving as the yearbook editor and a member of the Sub-Debs. Lois graduated in the BY High Class of 1948. Following high school she enrolled in the University of Utah College of Nursing where she later graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing and was a member of Phi Beta. She was married on February 2, 1951 to Dr. Robert Leland Morgan, her high school sweetheart who, at the time, was a medical student at the University of Southern California. Lois worked as a nurse in Los Angeles while Bob finished his medical training. She and Bob raised their family in Paradise, California. They also lived in Chico, California, on a walnut orchard in Durham, California and eventually retired to Rocklin, California and Midway, Utah. Lois was preceded in death by her parents, her siblings, and her eldest son, Paul Andrew Morgan. Lois is survived by her husband of 69 years and five of her children. They and their spouses include Christopher B. and Stephanie Thomas Morgan, Richard B. and Leona Gima Morgan, Craig B. and Cinda Burton Morgan, Diedre Morgan and Mark N. Roberts, Pamela Morgan and Adam J. Alexander. The children are guiding her grandchildren: Andrew, Ian, Eric, Alexander, Connor, Drew, Cage, Kimberly, James, Bradley, Marissa, Bryce, Landon, Kiera, Nolan, Jenner, Matilda, Sage, Quinn, Eden, Summer and Grace. And on to the next generation of great-grandchildren: Carson, Caitlin, Owen, Rhett, Emma, June, Bridge, Scarlett, Bradford, Greyson, Jaky and Aaliyah. Lois was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, giving generously of her time to church service. Lois held numerous leadership callings, including Primary President, Ward and Stake Relief Society President, but her most favorite was in the Nursery, where she would pop popcorn on Fast Sunday and let the smell waft down the hallway of the church building. In her senior years, she and Bob were called to be missionaries in the California Roseville Mission office, a calling they thoroughly enjoyed. Lois also spearheaded the Humanitarian Day in the Rocklin California Stake, where ladies and youth happily came together and sewed and tied numerous quilts for those in need. She could often be found at home knitting leper bandages or NICU hats and booties or beautiful hand-knit sweaters for children in Romania, all while listening to books on tape. She had a true zest for both learning and doing. Lois loved to travel and ski all over the world. She belonged to the Ski Bees Group for 35 years, retiring from skiing at the age of 82. Lois was practical, prudent, thrifty, talented, and possessed a “can-do” attitude. Anyone who visited her home would be blessed with an artfully prepared, nutritious, gourmet meal, beautifully presented, along with garnishes and heated and chilled dinnerware. Her home reflected her gift for interior design and creativity. Lois was an excellent seamstress and loved nature, flowers and gardening. She valued education and continued learning by taking classes at Chico State University in Japanese and floral design. Lois was obedient, faithful, trustworthy, and a very good friend. She spent many hours with her best friend and sister Fae playing marathon Scrabble games (some known to last a week) and visiting with each other. As with everything she did in life, Lois showed us how to endure to the end elegantly and gracefully. May you rest in peace, wife, mother, grand, and great. A graveside service will be held at 12:00 noon on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at the Provo City Cemetery, Provo Utah. A viewing will be held at the Nelson Family Mortuary in Provo from 10:00 — 11:30 that morning.[Provo Daily Herald, April 30, 2020]
