Dixie M. & William Snow

Class of 1930. Dixie 'K' Mangum. She graduated from Brigham Young High School on Thursday, May 29, 1930. She gave the invocation for the ceremony. Source: The Evening Herald, Provo, Utah, May 28, 1930. ~ ~ ~ ~ Dixie 'K' (for Knight) Mangum (but only the initial is used). She spent her junior year in high school in California, but returned to Provo to complete her senior year in the 1929-1930 academic year. She was born on March 25, 1913, and will be 98 years young on March 25, 2011. She is residing in Salt Lake City, Utah. She attended BYU through 1934. Her parents: Willis Lester Mangum and Jennie Pearl Knight Mangum, and they had three sons and three daughters. One of her sisters, Jessie 'K' (also for Knight, but again, initial only) Mangum, graduated in the BYH Class of 1933. Two of her brothers graduated from BY High: William Lester Mangum, Class of 1936 (?), and John Knight Mangum, Sr., Class of 1947. @2011 ~ ~ ~ ~ When Dixie K. Mangum Snow was a little girl, she would sometimes walk down to Provo’s Center Street to buy candy or ice cream. One of her most vivid childhood memories is of the elderly Jesse Knight — her grandfather — handing her some coins from his pocket so she could buy a few extra sweets. “He wasn’t a very good businessman,” chuckles Snow. “He made money, but he gave it away. He was generous.” At 98 years old, Snow is the last surviving grandchild of the Knights. Her memories of Jesse are few since he passed away when she was still in elementary school, but Snow had a close relationship with Amanda throughout her teenage and young adult years. “She was my great friend,” recounts Snow. Along with her cousins, Snow was fond of stopping by Amanda’s home on the way back from school for some good conversation and something tasty from the kitchen. “Grandmother was special. We all felt it.” Snow shares story after story of Amanda’s hardworking and sacrificing nature. Once, in response to a request from Jesse for money to cover the mortgage debt of a woman in need, Amanda agreed to mortgage her own home so that the other woman’s home wouldn’t be lost. A short time later, when Jesse needed more credit from the bank for a business transaction, the bank willingly extended it, saying that any man whose wife was willing to mortgage her own home to save another woman’s home could be trusted. Both during Jesse’s life and after, Amanda was always willing to share with others the financial blessings the Lord had given them. “She and Grandfather were one,” says Snow. “She was such a strong woman, and one who helped the BYU.” Snow’s own story also unfolded as one of generosity toward the university she loves. She attended BYU with the Class of ’34 but went back east to take a job as a secretary for William J. Snow Jr. (BYU ’28) before she graduated. They later wedded and then spent their entire married life away from Utah. “But our roots stayed very tied to the BYU,” says Snow. Her father-in-law, William J. Snow Sr. (1910), was a well-loved professor in BYU’s history department, and all of her siblings attended BYU. She returned to live in Utah after her husband’s death and takes pride in her membership in the society that bears her grandparents’ names. “I think it’s important that it’s the Jesse and Amanda Knight Society,” says Snow. “Including both names broadens it. . . . She was his partner, and she made sacrifices too.” After being named an honorary member of the Knight Society, Snow decided “to become a member of the Knight Society for real” by naming the university in her will. Her reasons for giving back are simple: “My family’s roots are BYU, and they run deep. We’re followers!” @2011 ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Dixie 'K' Mangum Snow died in her home on November 24, 2015. Her heart finally gave out at the age of 102. She was the last living child of Provoans W. Lester Mangum and Jennie Knight Mangum, and the last remaining grandchild of Jesse Knight and Amanda McEwan Knight. Growing up in Provo with her three brothers and three sisters, she attended Brigham Young High School, graduating in the Class of 1930. She then attended Brigham Young University before moving to Washington, D.C. during the 1930s. There she fell in love with another ex-Provoan, Bill Snow (William J. Snow Jr.). They were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on September 6, 1934. Because Bill was 11 years her senior, some of her friends thought that the marriage wouldn’t last. They were wrong; it was a wonderful marriage that lasted for 53 years until our father’s death in 1987. Mother and Dad raised their family in Washington, D.C.; Kansas City, Kansas; and Maplewood, New Jersey, before retiring to Rossmoor, Walnut Creek, California in 1967. Mother was a devoted wife, mother, and homemaker, with secretarial, administrative, and nursing skills that she put to good use in the home. She was a graceful combination of beauty and intelligence, with common sense and a sense of humor to match. A great “straight man” for our Dad’s humor, she was fun to embarrass. Mother played the cello and piano in her youth and continued to play the piano for most of her life. She saw to it that her children, talented or not, took music lessons. She valued her friendships in PEO and served in many volunteer civic and LDS church roles in New Jersey and California, exhibiting a special capacity to care for and serve the needs of others. After Dad’s death, Mother moved to Salt Lake City and enjoyed her activities and friends in the Terrace Falls Condominium, Classics Club, Alice Louise Reynolds Club, and Book Women. She served on the board of the BYU Emeritus Association and supported BYU over the years. With her good reflexes, sharp mind, and compassionate spirit, she drove her car until she was 98, played bridge until age 101, and reached out to younger, ailing friends. She often wondered why she was still alive when all her siblings had died many years earlier. Regardless, she remained a good companion to her children and younger friends, who reciprocated the friendship. We all admired her courage and endurance under stress. With advancing age, she remained cheerful and plucky and was a model to her extended family of how to age gracefully. Mother is survived by her three children and their spouses: Dixie Ann Snow Huefner (Robert P.), Salt Lake City; William J. Snow III (Sue Forbes Snow), Nokomis, Florida; Gerald (Jerry) T. Snow (Julie Polly Snow), Salt Lake City. Grandchildren: Steven Huefner, Eric Huefner, Farley Snow Boyle, Carey Snow, Jesse Snow, Daniel Snow, & Sean Snow. Eleven great-granddaughters and one great-grandson. Also survived by a special sister-in-law, Alice Wilkinson Mangum Anderson, along with many dear nieces, nephews, and friends. She was preceded in death by her brothers Max K. Mangum, William L. Mangum, John K. Mangum, & her sisters Gloria Mangum Burrows, Beth Mangum Johnson, Jessie K Mangum Bennion. The family thanks Symbii Hospice and Mother’s fulltime caregivers, as well as special friends in her Terrace Falls condominium, for their devoted help in her final months. A private burial is being held at the Provo City Cemetery. A public memorial service will be held Saturday, December 19th, at 11 a.m. in the LDS 18th North Ward chapel (corner of A Street and 3rd Avenue, Salt Lake City). Friends may visit with the family from 10-11 that morning. [Provo Daily Herald, November 29, 2015]

Class of 1917. Estella Manwaring. She received a BYH Normal Certificate in 1917. Source: Annual Record, B.Y. University, Book 8, page 258. ~ ~ ~ ~ Life Story: Bessie Estella (Stella) Manwaring Brockbank was born on August 30, 1895, in Springville, Utah. Her life has been one of sacrifice and service. At the tender age of eight she picked strawberries to help support her family when her father, Albert Manwaring, was called on an LDS mission to Manchester, England. Ten years later her beloved mother, Bertha Charlotte Sperry Manwaring, passed away in childbirth. Teenage Stella assumed the responsibility of cooking, cleaning, and caring for her father and five younger siblings. Stella graduated from Brigham Young High School with her normal [teaching] certificate. She taught third grade in Huntington, Utah, and at Timpanogos Elementary in Provo. During this time she was courted by Wallace Wilford Brockbank, and they were married by Heber J. Grant in the Salt Lake Temple. As Mrs. Brockbank, Stella's life of service took on new dimensions. When Wallace was principal of Springville High School and later superintendent of Nebo School District, Stella was at his side for every school function. This accomplished man died in 1978 of Alzheimer's disease. For over a decade Stella tenderly cared for him at home. Without Wallace, Stella devoted her service to ward members, neighbors, and family. When a friend was ill, she prepared a hot meal, complete with homemade bread or rolls. She lived alone in her Springville home until nearly 101 years of age. In the summer she nurtured her rose and vegetable gardens, generously sharing the harvest. An active Latter-day Saint all her life, she was a sterling example of righteous living. To spend a night with Grandma Stella was to glimpse into eternity as she knelt beside her bed and prayed out loud. A glorious reunion occurred on February 26, 2000, as 104-year-old Stella Brockbank was reunited with her eternal companion, parents, and siblings on the other side. All who knew her loved her and will miss this sweet, selfless woman who has so profoundly influenced their lives. She is survived by Elaine (William) Prusse of Denver, Colorado; Dr. Reed (Elaine) Brockbank of Kentfield, California; Norma (Robert) Thorn of Bountiful, Utah; 11 grandchildren, and 28 great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held Saturday, March 4, 2000, in Springville, Utah. Interment, Evergreen Cemetery.
