Matthew & Elva Cowley

Board of Trustees, 1950 to 1953. Elder Matthew Cowley was born August 2, 1897 at Preston, Franklin County, Idaho to Matthias Foss Cowley and Abbie Hyde Cowley. As a young man, he served a mission to New Zealand. He developed unusual skill in the Maori language, and was assigned to prepare a translation of the Book of Mormon into that language, correcting errors in an earlier translation. He made changes in approximately 2,500 verses in the original translation, and the second edition appeared in 1917. Elder Cowley was then assigned to translate the Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price, assisted by Wiremu Duncan and Stuart Meha. These translations appeared in 1919. In 1938 he was called to preside over the New Zealand Mission. With the coming of World War II, all American missionaries were called home, but President Matthew and Sister Elva Taylor Cowley chose to remain in New Zealand with their family to supervise the work during the war. It was September 1945 before the Cowleys were released after seven and a half years of service. At the October 1945 general conference, Matthew Cowley was called to be a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and was affectionately called their "Polynesian Apostle" by the Saints of the South Pacific. Elder Cowley told of an interesting experience while serving a Mission in New Zealand. "I was called to a home in a little village in New Zealand one day. There the Relief Society sisters were preparing the body of one of our Saints. They had placed his body in front of the Big House, as they call it, the house where the people came to wail and weep and mourn over the dead, when in rushed the dead man's brother. He said, "Administer to him." And the young natives said, "Why, you shouldn't do that; he's dead." "You do it!" This same old man that I had with me when his niece was so ill was there. The younger native got down on his knees, and he anointed the dead man. Then this great old sage got down and blessed him and commanded him to rise. You should have seen the Relief Society sisters scatter. And he sat up and he said, "Send for the elders; I don't feel very well." . . . Well, we told him he had just been administered to, and he said: "Oh, that was it." He said, "I was dead. I could feel life coming back into me just like a blanket unrolling." Now, he outlived the brother that came in and told us to administer to him. (Devotional address at BYU, February 18, 1953.) Elder Cowley was married July 18, 1922 in the Salt Lake Temple to Elva Taylor, and the couple had three children. He was sustained to the Council of the Twelve Apostles and ordained an Apostle October 11, 1945 by President George Albert Smith. He was well beloved by the Maori people and seems to have had a gentle loving disposition. An eloquent speaker, he compiled and authored Matthew Cowley Speaks, an anthology of many of his talks. He seems to have been of a mind to help sinners rather than ostracize them. He used to tell us that every priesthood quorum in this church ought to be an "Alcoholics Anonymous," because we all have smokers and drinkers who have to have help before they can overcome their habits, and we ought not to be an organization that says to a man who is begging for help, "Well, join the Alcoholics Anonymous." We ought to say, "Now you come to priesthood quorum meetings and we will assign some man who used to have this habit to work with you, and we will give you the help with the power of the priesthood until you can overcome it." Elder Cowley died in 1953 at Los Angeles, California. Interment, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Chuck and Eleanor Cox

BYH Class of 1949 ~ Honorary. Charles "Chuck" Cox. HIS OBITUARY: Charles "Chuck" McArthur Cox, the patriarch of our family, joined his beloved wife, Eleanor Anne Cox in the early morning hours on September 8, 2014 in Provo, Utah at age of 83. He served others selflessly, loved others deeply, and will be missed dearly by his family and friends. Chuck was born in Provo, Utah on May 8, 1931, the son of Charles Holman Cox and Helen McArthur. His father was involved in the steel industry and Chuck worked side-by-side with his dad from the time he was a young boy. The Cox family briefly lived in Fontana, California, before moving back to Provo. Chuck placed great value on higher education. He attended both Brigham Young University grade school and BYU High School, and graduated from Provo High. He graduated from Brigham Young University earning a bachelor of science in Mechanical Engineering. He went on to earn an MBA from Harvard (1961) and a PhD from The University of Washington (1978). Chuck played football for BYU for one year before his mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Toronto, Canada. He returned to BYU to finish his degree before he enlisted in the Navy and Officer Candidate School at Port Hueneme in Ventura, California, after which he served in the Judge Advocate Corp. Chuck married his college sweetheart, Eleanor Anne Boucher, on November 25, 1959 in the Salt Lake Temple, and were married for more than 50 years before she passed in 2011. Together they raised four children, Chip, Rick, Janet, and Craig. The family lived in San Jose and Sacramento, California where Chuck he worked for the defense industry. They returned to Provo in the mid-1960s when Chuck briefly helped his father run a foundry, and stayed to teach finance at BYU. When Chuck accepted a full-time position with Business School faculty at BYU, he returned to school at the University of Washington in Seattle for his PhD. The 'Seattle years' were a wonderful time for Chuck and his family, which was a good thing because after returning to BYU, the U of W scheduled him to teach each spring for a number of years, which Chuck really enjoyed. When BYU MBA students were asked in a survey five years after graduating which professor had most influenced them to be successful at work, Chuck was named as often as any other professor. His caring, sincere, deliberate way of thinking and relating conveyed the difficulties of working hard to address issues that have no ready solutions. It's what made him a wonderful, loved father as well. After he retired from full-time teaching at BYU Chuck continued teaching in the continuing education department of BYU through 2012. Chuck was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various Priesthood callings in that Wards and Stakes in which he lived. Chuck and Anne served a teaching mission in Beijing China in 1998-1999 where they both taught at the Foreign Affairs College, China's diplomacy school. After his mission, he continued to travel with Anne, family, and friends as often as possible. In his later years, Chuck loved genealogy research. He was passionate about this work and tracking down lost family members through historical and DNA connections. His work was the conversation piece over many meals and phone conversations. Friends and family were paramount to Chuck. He loved being of service, helping others with computers, genealogy questions, or whatever was troubling them. Chuck welcomed calls at any time of the day. Chuck's sincerity, abilities, generosity, and willingness to help and love will guide his children and grandchildren whom he loved very much for the rest of our lives. Chuck is survived by his four children Charles B. (Chip) Cox (Shauna), San Ramon, California, Richard H. Cox, (Yvette), West Jordan, Utah, Janet Elle Cox, Coronado, California, and Craig R. Cox (Joni), Chicago, Illinois, eight grandchildren - Matt, Justin, Rachel, Ali, Austin, McKenna, Walker and Blake one great grandchild Macie. He is also survived by his beloved Wilson and McArthur nephews, nieces and cousins. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, September 12, 2014 at the Edgemont North Stake Center, 4560 Canyon Road, Provo, Utah. Family and friends may call at the Berg Mortuary in Provo, 185 East Center Street, on Thursday, September 11, from 5:30 until 8:00 p.m., and at the church on Friday prior to services from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. Happy stories may be sent to the family through www.bergmortuary.com [Provo Daily Herald, September 10, 2014]
