About Clara Wilson

Year of Birth - 1882 - Chester A. Arthur President of the United States. New York City begins to receive generated electricity. Church dedicates Assembly Hall on Temple Square. John Taylor President of the LDS Church.

Her mother died when she was six years old. Most of her memories are of her stepmother. Her family ran a grocery store and she often helped in the store. Loved her Daughters of the Utah Pioneer's group. My (Richard A. Wilson) fond memories included going to her home for Thanksgiving dinner. Uncle Keith’s family was also there. We had such good food and a lot of fun with the cousins. It was a disappointment when she became too old to host these gatherings. I remember going with her to Relief Society when I was three and four. It was especially interesting to go around Christmas. The sisters would work on Bazar items and have a party where they exchanged gifts. it was fun to see what was in the exchanged packages. The Relief society had their own building at the side of the regular church house. Her lot adjoined Malinda McFarlane's lot on the rear. I spent much time going between the two homes while I lived with my Grandmother McFarlane while a senior in high school. My oldest son remembers the small bowl of mints she kept by her couch in the living room. He was about four years-old when she died. She was buried in the Richfield Cemetary.
