Their children: Three sons: Simpson (Tunney) Day (Evelyn), Clearfield; Thell (Ted) Day [BYH Class of 1956] (Karen), Layton; Arthur C. Day (Joan Hurst-dec.) (dec.); and two daughters: Divina Day Snow, Clearfield; and Shirley (John) Butler, Clearfield. ~ ~ ~ ~ "After graduation from high school, I moved to Layton, Utah near Hill Field AFB. I met my wife, Karen Peterson, in the spring of 1960, and we were married in November of that year. We have five children and fourteen grandchildren, with two more on the way. We lived in Casper, Wyoming for about two years where our second child was born. We moved back to Layton, Utah and have lived there most of our married life. In 1981, I was in a serious car accident and spent two months in the hospital and nearly a year in a body cast. After several years and a lot of hard work I have recovered well. Through that experience I have learned how fragile life can be, and Karen and I try to treat each day as special. We have been more places than we ever dreamed possible. We have been to Jerusalem, Gaza, Egypt, Turkey, Japan, Germany, Austria, Hawaii, Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Alaska, and through the Panama Canal and the surrounding countries as well as most of the mainland United States. We had the privilege of being volunteers for the 2002 Olympics at the Olympic Park in Park City, Utah. Note: As an independent insurance agent, one of the companies I represented in 2003 asked for my education history. Of course, I listed my graduation from BY High and, when they tried to verify the information, the administrative employees at Brigham Young University were not aware that BYU ever had a high school. I had to send them a copy of my diploma for verification. Apparently, BYU does not even remember us. @2006

Funeral arrangements are pending and will be announced by Berg Mortuary of Provo, 185 E. Center. 801-373-1841 [Provo Daily Herald, November 27, 2009.] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Belle Felice deJong Van Wagenen died after a short battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma on Tuesday, November 24, at home, surrounded by family. She will be missed for her sympathetic heart, ready smile, and happy quick wit. Belle was born on January 17, 1919, in Salt Lake City, to Gerrit deJong, Jr. and Rosabelle Winegar deJong. Her only brother passed away as an infant six years before Belle's birth. In 1925 the deJong family moved to Provo where her father organized the College of Fine Arts at B.Y.U. Belle received her education from first grade through college on one block in Provo, now called Academy Square. She graduated from B.Y. High School with high honors and spoke as valedictorian. She entered college at 17 and was voted one of the Freshman Queens. Later she was chosen Representative Home Coming Queen. She posed as a photographic model for B.Y.U. Studios during her college years. In 1939 she was married to her college sweetheart, Dean Van Wagenen, in the Salt Lake Temple by Apostle David O. McKay. Soon after Belle's marriage, her mother died and for the next two years Belle and Dean helped her father care for her two little sisters. In her 58 years of marriage, Belle devoted her best efforts to bettering the lives of her husband and four children. She made their home comfortable and artistically unique. The mountainside yard surrounding her home received personal hard work and exacting care to reflect her love of nature. In early childhood she developed a love of literature and it was furthered by excellent teachers at B.Y.U. In her 50's, Belle began to write poetry, essays, and stories. She was a member and officer in League of Utah Writers, Utah State Poetry Society and the National League of American Pen Women. She has won over 100 awards in contests. She won 1st and 2nd place prizes from B.Y.U. in essay contests in her later years. She was Sweepstakes winner for State of Utah for several years. She has presented countless programs for church groups, clubs, and civic organizations - usually using her own poetry and light verse to amuse and also to teach. Her writing has been published in newspapers, magazines, and anthologies nationwide. Her poetry has been included in the official volumes of "Utah Sings" and featured in dramatic programs by the S.L.C. Babcock Reading Arts Society. It has often been read on the air in the Sunday "Sound of Music" programs on KSL Radio. She has gathered her light verse together in a volume to be entitled "Life Could Be Verse - But Not Much." Her serious poems, stories, and essays will be called "On Wings of Written Words." She loved humor and wrote that it "provided stepping stones to lift us above the rapids of despair." She has always served in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she ably filled stake and ward administrative and teaching positions. Her favorite calling was as a teacher of Relief Society for 27 years. As Chairman of Volunteers for Utah County Chapter of American Red Cross, she supervised blood drives, volunteered in nursing homes, and worked with troubled girls. She always cared about "equal rights" for everyone - academically, politically and religiously. She enjoyed lecturing on literature in the local schools, and for many years she helped judge the writing section of the "Reflections" contests. During 58 years of marriage, Belle and Dean enjoyed traveling and learning about other cultures together. She treasured her friends and family and they benefited from her appreciation of beauty and the aesthetic experience. English was her major, and reading was her life-long hobby. She also designed and crocheted baby clothes and blankets. She always crocheted as she looked at TV and claimed, "TV only takes half a brain and crocheting uses the other half." Her husband passed away in 1997 and she is survived by one daughter, three sons, 24 grandchildren, and 37 great-grand children. Her family always came first as a sacred priority in her life. Her children are Julie Van Wagenen Aidukaitis, Paul Van Wagenen, Norman Van Wagenen, and Ken Van Wagenen. She is survived by two sisters: Nola deJong Sullivan, and Carma deJong Anderson. Funeral services will be held at 12:30 p.m., Saturday, December 5, 2009 at the Edgemont Stake Center, 303 West 3700 North, Provo. Friends may call Friday evening from 6-8 p.m. at the Berg Mortuary of Provo, 185 East Center and at the Stake Center on Saturday one hour prior to services. Interment Provo City Cemetery.

Her parents: Gerrit de Jong, Jr., [Professor of Fine Arts at BYU from 1925 to 1972] and Thelma Bonham de Jong, married in 1951 in Salt Lake City. Gerrit and Thelma had three daughters: Belle de Jong Van Wagenen [BYH Class of 1936], Nola de Jong Sullivan [BYH Class of 1942], Carma Rose de Jong Anderson [BYH Class of 1948], all of Provo, Utah. @1995 [see More Info link.] Carma was recently been editing, writing, and swimming in 750 pictures and permissions because BYU Religious Studies Center has published her 1992 Ph.D. dissertation. She just turned 75, but is going "like a house afire" on publishing deadlines. It is a big $125 book, edition of 5000. @2007 ~ ~ ~ ~ In 1935, Rosabelle and Gerrit de Jong's exquisite new Dutch colonial home on University Avenue stood close to the BYU Academy which, restored, now serves as our Provo Library. We gardened our own food and carefully cared for making our own clothes, with as little spending as possible. But the Great Depression was never mentioned to me in kindergarten or later. I thought we must be the richest people in Provo! Our parents called us all away from any activities whenever we could be together. Prayer was of utmost importance to us. Often I was a tardy child in putting down my art projects, or coming in from play outside, sometimes finding all the family kneeling around my parents' bed and impatient for me. I would sink down by Daddy, and then wiggle my freckled body under his. I felt more secure than inside a guarded tower! I pressed my cheeks into the crocheted bedspread my Dutch grandma had elaborately made to grace our new home. The warmth of that home was all around me; the huge, kindly forces of my father were encircling me, and it seems there was a channel straight up to heaven, filled with my father's voice in prayer. From the age of 5 in 1935, I attended grade school at the BYU lower campus "Training School," a practice teaching ground for our education majors. At recess, sunny or snowy, I was often tempted to dash with a friend up the flight of stairs to Daddy's office of Fine Arts, 204 in the College Hall Building (both buildings now gone). There stood Dean Gerrit de Jong's big oak desk, with a seemingly endless array of tiny drawers under the roll top. Daddy never looked at me in his life without a smile, so immediately from one hidden corner he would reach for his stash of chocolate, either real Droste Dutch or Hershey American. He shared for our ravenous palates that sensual aroma and tranquilizing taste of what essentially contributed to my handsome Amsterdamer daddy's linguistic ability to write and lecture in six languages, or his musical inspiration to compose. His bloodstream was pure chocolate! Carma de Jong Anderson is both an artist and a consultant on historic clothing and textile restoration for historic sites of the LDS Church. She is a mother of four, grandmother of 10 and recent great-grandmother. Source. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER HUSBAND'S OBITUARY: 1926 – 2018. Forever a scholar, Richard Lloyd Anderson graduated with honors from this life on August 12, 2018. Born May 9, 1926 of Lloyd E. and Agnes Ricks Anderson in Salt Lake City he began a lifetime pursuit of knowledge. His early years were spent at the BYU Training School, Pocatello, and Ogden public schools. He served as a naval aviation radio man in WWII. Called to the LDS Northwestern States Mission from 1946-1949, he saw a need to teach the gospel with a more organized approach. Through the encouragement of his mission president, Joel Richards, the teaching method became so successful it was adopted by other missions where it was widely known as the “Anderson Plan” and was published in 7 different languages. Following his mission he returned to Utah where he studied early Christian history, Greek and Latin and became a sought after teacher of missionary and religion courses at Brigham Young University. It was there he met his wife, Carma Rose deJong and they were married on May 22, 1951. He achieved a J.D. from Harvard Law School and a PhD in Ancient History from the University of California, Berkeley. He had a long teaching career at BYU in Church History and Doctrine, Life of Christ, Ancient Scripture, Greek and Roman History. He is an author of three books and hundreds of articles. He was a contributor and editor to many other publications including the Joseph Smith Papers Project. At the time of his death he was annotating the Oliver Cowdery Papers.

Nola de Jong Sullivan, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully at home in the arms of her husband, Clyde, on August 2, 2015.

They lived in California, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey, before returning to Utah to be “hands-on grandparents”. Passionate and artistic, Nola loved watercolor painting and dancing. She taught watercolor classes for many years, and she found great satisfaction in teaching art to adults and children. With a flair for finding the spice of life she helped those who were disabled, sick, or struggling to see and express the beauty of life. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren loved visiting her home and running to her art studio to create their own masterpieces. Nola encouraged everyone to be artists in their own right. Nola loved her family and was proud of both her ancestors and her descendants. One of her grandsons coined the nickname GraNola for her, and the name stuck for decades. Deeply proud of her Dutch heritage, Nola decorated her home in blue and came to be known among her great-grandchildren as “the blue grandma”. A life-long love of dance, over the years, benefited thousands as Nola and Clyde taught them to not only dance but love life. A faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she fulfilled many callings as a teacher. She and Clyde jointly served an addiction recovery mission. Nola is survived by her husband, Clyde; two children (and their spouses): Michael (Christine) Sullivan and Kim (Craig) Stevens.

She is also survived by one sister, Roberta (Bob) Peterson, Pleasant Grove, Utah; and two sisters-in-law, Gloria (Shirl) Wright, American Fork, Utah; and Nicholas Speakman, Camarillo, California. Marie was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Myrtle Dean; her husband, Bruce; one brother, Edwin Dean; two sisters, Mildred Peine and Winifred Banks; and one brother-in-law, Lyman Aird Speakman. Marie was born November 13, 1928, in Durango, Colorado. She was raised in Red Mesa, Colorado, and Provo, Utah. She had many fond memories of her years on the farm in Red Mesa and at Brigham Young High School, where she graduated in 1946, and Brigham Young University in Provo. She served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Northwestern States Mission. Following her missionary service, Marie worked for several years at the LDS Church Office Building as an administrative assistant during the tenure of President David O. McKay. She married her best friend and sweetheart, Bruce Speakman, in the Salt Lake Temple on August 8, 1958. Marie was a beloved full-time mother, raising five children, and then returned to the workforce from 1978-1995 in the accounting department at Murdock Travel. She was devoted to her family and to serving the Lord her entire life. Bruce and Marie raised their family in Kenwood First Ward, Salt Lake City, where Marie continued to live following Bruce's death in 2007. In 2011, she moved to Smithfield, Utah. Marie served faithfully in many church callings, including Primary President and Relief Society President. She also devoted thousands of hours to family history work. From August 1991 - August 1993, Bruce and Marie served as service missionaries in the Utah Salt Lake City Granite Park Mission. At her passing, Marie would ask all those who love her to celebrate her life, rather than mourn her death, by giving Christ-like service to those around them - a pattern Marie exemplified always.

Theodore and Eleanor Dedrickson

Class of 1890? Theodore Dahl Dedrickson was born August 1, 1871 in Spanish Fork, Utah. He died April 22, 1940 in Spanish Fork, Utah, and was buried April 24, 1940 in Spanish Fork, Utah. Theodore married Eleanor Braithwaite on February 16, 1898 in Manti, Sanpete, Utah. Theodore's parents joined the church in Iceland and Denmark and traveled to Utah. ~ ~ ~ ~ [The following narrative was written by his daughter, Alta] Dad usually cooked breakfast and got us ready for school. He worked split shifts at the Drug Store and enjoyed taking care of the children and their needs. We loved him, dearly. He was such fun and we made a game of everything working together, to get our chores done. We laugh a lot... Dad, because of his feet, was not able to do heavy work and a lot of walking. He was born with two club feet and must have found this somewhat of a handicap in many ways. He attended school in Spanish Fork and at Brigham Young Academy. Here, he studied pharmacy and so went into the drug business as a young man. Many years later, when I attended Brigham Young University myself [1921-1924] President George H. Brimhall called me to his office one day, and told me about my father being a student there. He told me what a splendid student he was and what a proud heritage I had to live up to. He said he also knew Grandfather Dedrickson and his work in the church. I shall always cherish that visit... Then there was the day when papa brought home a new-angled invention called an automobile. It was made by Henry Ford and called his Model T. What a thrill!! We all loaded in and went clear to Provo to see Barnum and Bailey's big three-ring circus. There were real elephants, monkeys and clowns. The parade was coming down Main Street and we were parked so we could see. The clown ran over and started counting us out loud and threw his hands in the air and yelled "poor papa." This was the only car in town, except Dr. Warner, we were quite a novelty. Everyone would stop, look and listen. Some of the older generation wondered what this world was coming to... They had the following children: 1. Gilbert DEDRICKSON was born 18 Jun 1899 and died 16 Mar 1991. 2. Hazel La von DEDRICKSON was born 2 Mar 1901 and died 11 Sep 1990. 3. Royal DEDRICKSON was born 12 May 1903 and died 8 Mar 1982. 4. Ruth DEDRICKSON was born 12 May 1903 and died 17 Apr 1982. 5. Alden Robert DEDRICKSON was born 12 Apr 1907 in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah. He died 9 Aug 1926 in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah and was buried in Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah. Alden Dedrickson, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Dedrickson, died Monday night at 11 o'clock after a brief illness of ptomaine poisoning, brought on, it is thought by eating a hot dog at a lunch counter on the 8th. The youth was taken sick on the 9th, but his condition was not thought to be serious. Doctors were called in on the case and he was thought to be improving until Monday afternoon, when he lapsed into unconsciousness and he died the same evening. 6. Alta Amelia DEDRICKSON was born 12 Apr 1907 and died 12 Jan 1981. 7. Ruby Eleanor DEDRICKSON was born 28 Apr 1910 and died 20 Sep 1990.
