From 1975-1980 her husband was president of the Idaho Falls temple and Jennie served as matron. Jennie enjoyed music, speech and dramatic arts.

John and Margaret Holdaway

Class of 1892? John Shadrack Holdaway - A history written by his daughter, Mrs. Edna Holdaway Newman, now deceased: John Shadrack Holdaway was born March 23, 1874 at Mammoth, Utah, where his father worked in the mines. He was the son of John Madison and Jane Gillespie Holdaway. His grandfather Shedrick was one of the early pioneers and builders of Utah valley. He built the road up the South Fork of Provo Canyon where he had a sammill; he brought the first carding machinery into Provo; he, with the help of his brother David, built the first threshing machine in Utah and he laid out a canal across Provo Bench without the aid of any instruments and he also took up a large tract of land on the east shore of Utah Lake and farmed it. He married Lucinda Haws in Salt Lake City on 24 Dec. 1848, and she, too, did her part to pioneer this valley. She studied herb doctoring in Illinois before coming to Utah, so was called upon to doctor the sick, act as mid-wife and wrote many poems as a tribute to friends and loved ones, and especially to those bereaved. John's grandmother, Jane Gillespie, came from Sootland with her father and six brothers, her mother having passed away. She was a very lonely and sad little girl as her father and brothers went to work in the mines each day. She said she cried much of the time because she missed her mother so very much. One day she climbed up the side of the mountain, sat on a rock, and looking over the bleak land, prayed that she might go back to Scotland. She testified that she saw her mother, and her mother told her to stop grieving, and she said a great peace came over her. John Madison Holdaway and Jane Gillespie were married Dec. 5, 1870. John Madison was a staunch and diligent member of the Church and filled a mission for the Church after his family was raised. He was particularly interested in genealogy of the family. He was watermaster in Provo for a number of years. John Madison and Jane Gillespie Holdaway moved to Provo, Utah, and here their son, John Shadrack attended Brigham Young Academy. It was here that the romance between John S. and his future wife began. Margaret Adamson lived in Pleasant Grove and transportation was a problem in those days, so often John walked the approximately ten miles to see Maggie, and sometimes he rode a bicycle. John Shadrack Holdaway and Margaret Janette Adamson were married Dec. 4, 1895 in the Salt Lake Temple. They settled in Pleasant Grove and John worked in the flour mill for his father-in-law. After the mill was sold John did construction work. He also worked on the flume that takes water out of Provo Canyon; also on the Pleasant Grove City water works where he would walk from home up over Little Mountain to the foot of Mt. Timpanogos, where water was piped down the mountain. After the day's work was done, he, with others, would walk home until later a small track railroad took them up and down the Little Mountain. The following is quoted from the history written of him by his daughter, Edna Holdaway Newman, now deceased: "He also worked on the railroad and the mines in Mammoth. He actually was a carpenter by trade and liked that work better than milling. But because mining and construction work took him away from his family so much of the time, he took a milling job at McCammon, Idaho. The family lived there for one summer; then he came back and worked at the flour mill In Pleasant Grove and later at the Lehi Roller Mill, where, for many years, he traveled back and forth to work. He took training in chemistry of grains and developed the Turkey Red flour from the hard wheat. He also developed the Whole Wheat which has such popularity, but because he cared little for honor or public applause, he let the mills take the credit. He was also a carpenter and did most of the work on his own home. Everything he undertook to do, he did well and his services were always in demand so that as a family we were always taken care of. His love for his family, as all of them can testify, was our greatest joy. We would never care to go with anyone else if we could go an a trip or do something interesting with father and mother. Our trips were precious memories. The following is taken from a brief sketch of John's life by his son-in-law, Frank B. Nomans: "Mr. Holdaway has cared little for honor or public applause, but his quiet, unassuming nature, his sound judgment and integrity of character has won for him the sincere respect and admiration of all who knew him. He was one of the early school board members of Pleasant Grove. He served as City Councilman several times. "He enjoyed his Church positions, serving as Superintendent of the Sunday School, second counselor to Bishop M. S. Christiansen of the Third Ward, Chairman of the Building Committee for the Third Ward Church, Assistant to the Stake High Priest Presidency and a member of the Ward Quorum at death. "While he has always enjoyed his church and community activities, his hobby was his family. He loved to plan trips and outings for his children and grandchildren, and he got a full share of enjoyment out of such recreation. "He enjoyed living and seeing other people live, He was always reluctant to condemn; he was patient and generous always. I have been married (to his daughter) nearly 23 years and in that time we have had no cross words between us. I am sure the major reason was on his part. A friend, Niels Fugal, said that John Holdaway, to his best knowledge, did not have an enemy in the world. He wasn't that type of individual. In his public position as City Councilman for four years, he was interested in the affairs of the people and his judgment was wise, judicious and did the things that were for the betterment of all....President Wilford Warnick (Stake President) paid this tribute to him, "Brother Holdaway has the confidence of the people. They have called him to serve in various capacities and he has always served with honor. He has been a pillar of strength to the Church. He was, indeed, a man among many; a man of energy; a man of ability; and a man of great faith, a man willing to serve." Bishop Christiansen said,I never saw Brother Holdaway do a discreditable thing and I know him well'." John Shadrack Holdaway died May 14. 1944 in Pleasant Grove, Utah, and his beloved wife passed away May 3, 1951.

Faulkner (Holly), Kattie Faulkner Jennings (Gordon); and Lance Travis Faulkner [dec. November 2001] (Melanie). ~ ~ ~ ~ Deseret News Executive Focus; Marlene Faulkner, Inc., Will's Pit Stop, Provo, Utah. August 4, 1993: VITAL STATISTICS: Age: 58. Where born: Price, Utah. Family: Daughters: Kim, Kelly and Katie; sons: Bill Jr. and Lance. Education: High school. Primary products: Convenience store, gas, car wash. Number of employees: Eight.

What I like about my line of work: Meeting people. Heroes: My mother-in-law, Bernece Faulkner, and my sister-in-law, Diane Jarvis. Leisure time and hobbies: Spending time with my five children and 11 grandchildren. My husband raced a boat, and when he died my two sons took it over; we travel all over the nation racing. Favorite book and movie: ``Life Everlasting,'' ``Gone With the Wind.'' ~ ~ ~ ~ Bill, Sr., raced E boats with some success. They opened Will's Pit Stop convenience store, gas station and car wash on North University Avenue. Bill died the day the store opened, but Marlene still owns and operates the store. Their son, Lance, was a National Champion boat racer at 19 years of age. He was killed in a racing accident in November of 2001. ~ ~ ~ ~ The legacy of Faulkner racing started in 1970 with Bill Faulkner, Sr. driving SS-70 "Hot Canary", and Bill Faulkner, Jr. helping his dad in the pits. Youngest son, Lance, became involved in the family racing as he grew older. In January 1983 tragedy struck the Faulkner family with the death of Bill Faulkner, Sr. who died of cancer. Bill Faulkner, Jr. soon stepped into his father's shoes and took over as driver with Lance in the pits. In 1991 Bill gave Lance the opportunity to drive the boat part time. The following year Bill saw Lance's potential in taking Faulkner Racing to a new level. In 1992 Bill turned the driving over to Lance, then took engine responsibilities and managed the crew. With the help of their crew, family and friends, along with financial help from their mother, Marlene Faulkner, and the family business, Wills Pit Stop, Faulkner Racing raised the "bar" for Super Stock Racing and Lance's list of accomplishments continued to grow. A three-time inductee into the prestigious APBA Hall of Champions, Faulkner owned every national / divisional title and nearly every speed record in the Super Stock class during his racing career. But Faulkner did not stop with the Super Stock class ... in 1998 Lance purchased his first K-Boat to compete in the legendary unlimited flatbottom class. A "hired gun" in 1996 and 1997, Faulkner collected checkered flags and national titles as he put the K-Boat class on notice that he most definitely was a contender, until his tragic death in 2000. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Marlene Joan Holliman Faulkner (Sweet Pea). She was born August 7th, 1934 in Price Utah, to Ephraim Edgar Holliman and Milda Marguerite Johnstun (sic).

She was surrounded by her loving family, who willingly cared for her while she transitioned.
