Dewey Nelson

Class of 1946 ~ Honorary. Dewey Nelson. His name and photograph appear with the senior class in the 1946 Wildcat yearbook, but his name does not appear on the graduation list in the 1946 Graduation Program. ~ ~ ~ ~ HI~~! I can tell you something about Dewey Nelson, Class of 1946. One of his older sisters, Charlotte, married one of my older brothers, James Richardson, in the Manti Temple, 9 Dec 1942 (which also happened to be my 14th birthday). At the time James was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force, and an instructor of flight training, stationed in Lincoln, Nebraska. He and Charlotte Nelson had met a year earlier when both of them were singing in the Tabernacle Choir. Charlotte was working in SLC at the time of their marriage. I was the youngest in our family and the only one left at home in 1942. We had moved up from Sacramento, Calif., the previous February, and were living on a farm 3 miles north of Pleasant Grove, next to the Manila Ward Chapel. (Today, 1 mile to the West of it is the Mt. Timpanogos Temple.) I remember my parents and I driving down to Chester, where Charlotte Nelson's family then lived on a farm, several miles NW of Manti, and staying with them three nights, before and after the wedding. That's when I first met Dewey, who was a few months older than I, and his sister, Ruth, about two years younger. My most memorable time there was learning to ice skate on a frozen pond near their house, using a pair of Ruth's buckle/clamp-on skates, and pushing an old wooden kitchen chair around on the ice for balance! Since I'd been raised in "sunny California". I'd never had a chance to learn before. Dewey's folks decided to send him up to Provo for his senior year in high school, so that's how he ended up at BYHS in September 1945. I had not seen him since the wedding in Dec. 1942, so didn't recognize him at first. Also, he had a very large cast on his leg and ankle and was on crutches! But he recognized me somehow, since his folks had corresponded with mine and told them that he would be there in Provo. We were never more than casual friends, and never even had a date together. I just remember him as being a nice guy and sort of bashful around girls! My brother, James, and his wife, Charlotte, Dewey's sister, had also moved to Provo, where James was attending BYU on the GI Bill. I was living with them, as Charlotte was not very well and needed some help. Their two little kiddies, were Sylvia born in September 1943, and Robert in August 1945. So I had a full schedule that senior year, with a load of classwork, plus helping Charlotte after school and on weekends. My years in the Pleasant Grove schools had not been happy ones, so I was glad to be able to attend BYHS. The next (and last time) I saw Dewey Nelson after graduation was in June 2002, in the Salt Lake Temple. He was there with his wife attending a wedding for Robert Richardson, the son of James and Charlotte Richardson. Robert had made a career of the Army, spent two tours in Viet Nam and more than 15 years in Germany. He married a German girl, with whom he had a daughter, before they were finally divorced. After a couple of years he was discharged and came back to the USA, settling in the Salt Lake Valley. After chatting with Dewey Nelson after the session he introduced me to his wife, and said they were living in Pleasant Grove then. I didn't get any further information about him, or what he'd been doing all the intervening years since graduation! I'm sure if you contacted him he would write down a short history of his life. Here is the phone number for Charlotte and James Richardson, who now live in West Jordan, Utah: 801-208-8824. If you want to call them, I'm sure Charlotte would be able to give you Dewey's phone number. Hang in there --- Carol Alexander, BYH Class of 1946, Panama City Beach, FL, September 2005.

Marcia Ann & Robert Ludlow

Class of 1963. Marcia Ann Nelson. Debate, Oratory, Band, Ladies Glee Club, Honor Society President, Model U.N., Seminary Graduate, Pep Club, Thespians, F.H.A., Spanish Club. BYU BS Elementary Education 1968. Married Robert C. Ludlow, DDS-R. @2008 ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Marcia Ann Nelson Ludlow, December 23, 1945 - December 5, 2017. Marcia Ann Nelson Ludlow passed away at her home in Modesto, California on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 after battling chronic kidney disease for nearly 20 years. She was 71 years old. Marcia Ann was born on December 23, 1945 in Logan, Utah to Joyce Rich Nelson and Roscoe Maughan Nelson, who on that day was still stationed in Okinawa, Japan after his service as a Marine Corps fighter pilot during World War II. Marcia Ann dearly loved her brothers Stephen R. Nelson, Richard R. Nelson, Scott M. Nelson, Douglas R. Nelson, and sister Claire Marie Painter. Marcia Ann came of age in Provo, Utah where she excelled academically, was a state debate champion, and graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1963. She attended Brigham Young University (BYU) and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English in 1968. She became a credentialed high school teacher and proponent of education throughout her life. It was at BYU that she met the love of her life and as she often said, "her most important gift," Robert C. "Bob" Ludlow. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year, having married in the Salt Lake Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on August 31, 1967. Marcia Ann will be remembered for living a life dedicated to the service of others. In addition to ongoing service to her church and community, she was a prolific writer of thoughtful notes and showed her love to neighbors and friends through homemade cinnamon rolls and pies. She never missed an opportunity to express her love because she was never satisfied with mere acquaintance — every dialysis nurse, hospital orderly or new face at church quickly became a close friend. She considered motherhood her highest calling and sacred duty. Marcia Ann helped all five of her sons attain the rank of Eagle Scout and her two daughters become accomplished musicians. She relished the time she spent with her grandchildren, hosting tea parties and reminding each of their great worth to her and to a loving God. Her faith in God was truly unshakable and she was a humble disciple of Jesus Christ with her whole soul. Marcia Ann approached the debilitating kidney disease that dominated the last two decades of her life with discipline, grace, and incredible strength. Despite two generous kidney donations, she was on dialysis for nearly 20 years. The family is incredibly grateful to the many doctors, nurses, technicians, and caregivers who loved and tirelessly attended to her for so many years. She is survived by her husband Robert C. Ludlow and their seven children: Diane Forsyth (Bruce), Robert N. Ludlow (Marianne), Thomas N. Ludlow (Heather), Nathaniel J. Ludlow (Shannon), Kathleen Sandford (Caleb), Andrew N. Ludlow, Matthew N. Ludlow (Monica). Bob & Marcia Ann have 26 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, December 9 at 11 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (731 El Vista Ave., Modesto, California). Friends may call at the church on Friday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. She will be interred at Lakewood Memorial Park. Memorial donations in Marcia Ann's name may be made to the Inherited Kidney Disease Research Fund, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, PO Box 571021, Winston-Salem, N.C. 27157. [Modesto Bee]
