Class of 1945. Fawn Anderson. Her parents: Oscar Hyrum Anderson and Eliza Bronson Anderson. ~ ~ ~ ~ "I attended BYH only for my senior year. When I arrived I learned they had not yet named the yearbook editor. It was my good fortune that my drama teacher, Mr. Andrés chose me to be yearbook editor in 1945. I loved putting together the yearbook as I was able to get to know everyone and interact with them. It was one of the most enjoyable times of my life. I got a lot of exercise running up and down the many stairs from lower to upper campus, because the printing press was on upper campus. The unique memory I have of the yearbook coming out was that as far as I know we may have had the first yearbook that came out on time - so that we could all sign each other’s books. There is a photo in the back of the yearbook where we are toasting the completion of the book, and if you have a copy, you will see I am beaming!" @Dec2019

Moana and John Bennett

Class of 1945. Moana Ballif. Born January 4, 1928, Hastings, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. Her parents: Artemesia Romney and Ariel Smith Ballif. Married John H. Bennett. Author of novel, "A Quality Lacking". A former writer with United Press International and a former long-time member of the MIA General Board and of the Relief Society General Board. Dramatist, "Melt Down Your Pewter." ~ ~ ~ ~ NEWS ARTICLE: EX-NEWS REPORTER MOANA BENNETT DIES. Former Deseret News reporter Moana Ballif Bennett, 60, died of cancer in her Salt Lake City home on April 12, 1988. Mrs. Bennett's journalism career included four years as a Provo-based reporter with the Deseret News between 1941 and 1945 and four summers as a staff correspondent with the United Press in Salt Lake City. She later worked as a public relations assistant for U.S. Steel from 1949 to 1953. In 1974, she was named a special consultant to the press relations division of the Public Communications Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mrs. Bennett earned a degree in journalism with a minor in sociology from Brigham Young University in 1949. While attending BYU, she was editor of the student newspaper and student body secretary. She was also named "Most Efficient Student." She was on the General Board of the Young Women's Mutual Improvement Association for 18 years, serving much of that time as co-chairwoman of the organization's drama committee. In 1978, Mrs. Bennett wrote and directed an LDS pageant, "Because of Elizabeth," that was performed at the dedication of the Nauvoo Monument to Women in Nauvoo, Ill. She served on the board of the Davis County Mental Health Association and as president of the Oakridge Elementary School PTA. She represented the LDS Church on the Board of Utah Issues. Funeral services were held on April 18, 1988 in the Mount Olympus North Stake Center, 4176 Adonis Drive (3930 East). Interment, Larkin Sunset Lawn Cemetery. [Deseret News, April 15, 1988] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER HUSBAND'S OBITUARY: John Harper Bennett died September 24, 2016, at the age of ninety. Born March 12, 1926, in London, England, to Emily Higgs and Harold Harper Bennett, he was the eldest of eight children. John grew up in the Gilmer Park neighborhood of Salt Lake City, attending Emerson and Roosevelt schools and graduating from East High School in 1943. After his freshman year at the University of Utah, he was drafted into the U.S. Navy, trained as a quartermaster (navigation specialist), joined the last class of the Motor Torpedo Boat Squadrons Training Center in Rhode Island, and served in the Philippines at the tail end of World War II. Discharged in 1946, John returned to school and then entered the California LDS Mission, where he served “without purse or scrip” under President Oscar W. McConkie. Those who know him find it hard to imagine John knocking on strangers’ doors asking for dinner and a place to sleep. John met Moana Ballif at his sister Elen’s wedding reception. He fell in love with the young reporter and BYU graduate and married her on May 22, 1951. He said, “She was a much better person than I — consistently wonderful. She never made a single error, except perhaps in marrying me.” They spent their honeymoon in Colorado Springs, where John played in a tennis tournament and Moana cheered. In 1953, John finished a degree in Philosophy at the University of Utah — not because he believed it would get him a job but because he hoped it would teach him to think. He had worked part-time at Bennett Motors and continued in the sales department after graduation. In 1957, he moved to the leasing department, which was eventually spun off as a separate business. In time, he became president of Bennett Leasing Company and a respected national leader in the industry, serving as vice-president, president, and then chairman of the board of the American Automotive Leasing Association, and on boards and committees of several other trade organizations. The game of squash racquets was his grand passion and became his second career. Following the example of his father, John took up squash at the age of forty and never looked back. He admired the ethical and cerebral demands of the game. In a fast, aggressive, chess-like match, each player has an absolute duty to get out of his opponent’s way. He was state champion in Utah, Colorado, and California; won Intermountain and Pacific Coast regional titles; and claimed the 1983 55+ Softball National Championship. Including hardball, softball, and doubles, he participated in 63 nationals. John served as president of the Utah Squash Association, leading the effort to build an exhibition court at the Deseret Gymnasium and bringing the North American Open to Salt Lake City in 1980. When the Gym closed, John opened the Chancellor Racquets Club, with two converted racquetball courts, and operated it for nine years. In 1999, with partners including his son Craig, he launched Squashworks, a squash-only facility with six international courts that has hosted twelve professional tournaments. In 2012, he was named to the U.S. Squash Grand Masters Honor Roll. A classic introvert, John nevertheless enjoyed close associations with family and friends, including his siblings and members of the Garden Park and East High study groups, with whom he met regularly for over 65 years. He had squash friends all over the country and enjoyed seeing them at tournaments. In his last years, although he mourned the loss of his ability to play, he loved being at Squashworks, watching squash, talking with members, reading the paper, and enjoying the sounds and energy of the club. He took special pleasure in watching his grandchildren play, hoping that his love for the game would continue in generations to come. Besides squash, he loved jazz, theatre, road trips, model cars, and BYU sports. He was a committed member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many capacities over his lifetime. His favorite assignment was teaching Gospel Doctrine. Together John and Moana raised six children, two daughters and four sons, in a loving home full of her goodness and his humor, mixed with books, sports, debates, service, faith, and mutual respect. After Moana’s death in 1988, and through many losses and reversals, he remained the center of their family circle. His legacy is integrity, courage, and an astounding optimism in the face of adversity. His dry self-deprecating wit and concise wisdom are already deeply missed. He is survived by his children and their spouses: Heather (Kevin Hanson), John (Lorraine), Brandon (Virginia Vierra), Marc (Shelley), Craig (Eden), and Shannon a.k.a. Shaz (Jean-Pierre Caner); fourteen grandchildren (and three spouses); three great-grandchildren; two brothers, Michael and Stephen; and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins. His wife, parents, four sisters, and one brother preceded him in death. Funeral services were held on Monday, October 3, 2016, in the Garden Park Ward, 1150 East Yale Avenue. Interment, Larkin Sunset Lawn, 2350 East 1300 South. Instead of flowers, John requested that his friends play squash! Source. @Oct 2016

His work in dental forensics spanned more than 25 years and in 1990, he received the Clackamas County Sheriff's Department Public Service Award. Fred enjoyed wide ranging interests, applying his considerable skill and dexterity in his many creative pursuits. He was a loving husband and father to wife, Norma; son, Paul; and daughter, Jillayne.

Born February 5, 1927, in Salt Lake City, a daughter of Curtis John and Flora Elizabeth Salm Butts, she lived on the same block on Fifth East for 76 years. Norma attended Granite High School, where she excelled as a student, and won the crown of prom queen as the youngest contestant. In 1945 she graduated from Brigham Young High School in Provo, while attending BYU concurrently. On Christmas Eve in 1943 she met Delwin Laurence Metcalf on a blind date, and they were married Nov. 8, 1945, in the Salt Lake Temple.

She served in various capacities in the LDS Church as a teacher in Gospel Doctrine, Relief Society, Young Women, Primary inservice and Cub Scouts. She was proud of her heritage, and spent many hours compiling family pictures. Her flower garden -- where she hosted church groups, family parties and showers -- was the envy of the neighborhood.

Louis and Robin Cardon

Class of 1945. Louis B. Cardon. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Obituary for Louis B. Cardon. Our loving father passed away December 3, 2017 at the age of 89. Dad was born January 6, 1928 in Mesa, Arizona to Louis Sanders and Winafred Bellamy Cardon. He learned the value of work, education, integrity, and faith in Jesus Christ in his home. He was close to his older sister Brookie, and his 3 younger brothers; Marriner, Phillip and Grover. Louis graduated from Brigham Young High School in Provo, Utah in the Class of 1945. He then graduated from the University of Arizona before serving an LDS mission to the Franco-Belgium mission. Serving in France inspired him to pursue his professional desires of teaching history and his personal desires towards a certain Sister Missionary. He married his sweetheart Robin (Harriet Ann Robinson) in the Mesa, Arizona temple on Dec. 22, 1953. While working on his degree, Dad and Mom also worked on starting their family: Becky (Greg) Smith, Scott (Kathy) Cardon, and Carol (Mike) Dyer. After receiving his Ph.D. in modern European History from the University of California at Berkely, he began teaching at BYU. He moved his family to France several times while teaching/directing the University’s Semester-Abroad Program, thus sharing the french culture with his children. Dad was a gifted teacher, loving particularly to teach his children to swim, water ski, snow ski, hunt, camp, and hike. Dad relished wholesome recreational family activities. Dad had a great love for the gospel of Jesus Christ, serving as a Branch President in Paris and as a Bishop at BYU. He was particularly gifted with languages, picking up accents quickly, which he used to great advantage in his service as an ordinance worker in the Provo, Utah temple. He loved to assist the international missionaries from the MTC in their native tongues. Mom and Dad left their temple work in Utah to serve as senior missionaries at the Swiss temple in Zollikofen, Switzerland. Not surprisingly, Dad built a Swiss chalet in Midway, Utah, a family gathering place for their 11 grandchildren; Melissa (Jeff) Smith, Shane Smith, Erik (Amanda) Smith, Michelle (Todd) Jaramillo, Landon Cardon, Nathan Cardon, Chantal (Jerry) Tibbitts, Zac (Nicole) Cardon, Devin (Carolynn) Dyer, and Alicia (Steve) Taylor. They also have 21 great-grandchildren who now share in the joys of four-wheeling up the hill, sledding down the road and a hillside slip-n-slide. Dad lived his last months at Legacy Assisted living in Provo. We thank the kind staff for their tender care. He exemplified, as the Apostle Paul, “in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Dad has now joined his loved ones who preceded him in death: his sweetheart Robin (who passed away in March), his parents, his sister Brookie Cardon Peterson, and grandson Kimball McKay Dyer. Funeral Services will be held Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the LDS Chapel located at 665 South 200 West, Orem, Utah. Viewing at 10:00, prior to services.

On March 15, 1943 he first married Audry Huffaker in the Salt Lake Temple. They were the parents of three children: Shonnie, Steven, and Susan. During World War II he was a pilot- instructor in the US Air Corps, flying PBY seaplanes used in Air-Sea Rescues. In January 1946 he entered Stanford University where he received his BA and JD (Law) degrees. He was affiliated at first with Richards and Bird Law Firm, later with Bushnell and Beesley, and finally with Kirton, McConkie and Bushnell. He had a long and distinguished career as a litigator, representing hospitals, school districts, and the LDS Church. He served one term in the Utah House of Representatives, 1951. Audry died on November 12, 1962. ~~ He second married Miriam Christensen Nelson, December 5, 1963. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. He became a wonderful father to her two daughters, Shaun Nelson and Stacey Nelson. After one year in Little America, Wyoming, they moved to their present home. Dan had many Church callings: Gospel Doctrine teacher, High Priest Group Leader, Bishop's counselor, Branch President, (University of Utah Student Stake), Stake High Councilor, Stake Executive Secretary, Temple Worker. He has been a member of the Utah and California Bar Associations for 54 years. He served on the Salt Lake City School Board for 10 years, the last two years as President. From 1992 to 1998, he was attorney for the LDS Church in Europe, headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany. Two satisfying legal achievements were the securing of a full tithing tax deduction for Church members in Australia and Germany and the procuring of the title to the land for the construction of the Madrid Temple. He battled the United States Government for a period extending over 30 years for the wrongful death of southern Utah sheep resulting from nuclear fallout. He was survived by his wife, Miriam, and five children: Shonnie Passey (Robert), Centerville; Steven D. Bushnell (Paula Craig), Fallbrook, California; Susan Brown (Mark Coleman), Salt Lake City; Shaun Humphries (Stephen P.), Provo, and Stacey Segura (Thomas R.), Glendora, California.

Darrell Bushnell, Orem, and many nephews and nieces and cousins who will miss him greatly. He loved and cherished his many friends. He wanted everyone to know that his family meant everything to him; his faith in God was complete; he didn't only believe, he knew. Funeral services were held at the Federal Heights Ward, Monday, December 30, 2002. Interment, Salt Lake City Cemetery. [Deseret News, Saturday, December 28, 2002.]
