Families are Forever

Sunday May 29th at the Brigham City Cemetery in front of the graves of Bill and Veara Fife. Their Daughter Norda in the center is surround by her five sons (sorry you couldn't make it Mary) and their wives, children and grandchildren. Bill Fife served in France during WWI.

Veara's mother and Norda's grandmother, Agnes Caldwell Southworth had faith in every footstep as she crossed the planes from Scotland in the Willie handcart Co. with her widowed mother Margaret Ann McFall Caldwell.
Sarah Emmett at the grave of Adam Jolly Fife and Agnes Shumway Fife--her great-great grandparents and the parents of Norda Agnes Fife Emmett's father William Shumway Fife. Agnes Shumway Fife's mother was Sarah Jardine of Clarkston, Utah. Sarah Jardine and her sister Agnes Jardine were the polygamous wives of Charles Shumway II. Sarah named her first daughter Agnes in honor of her sister-wife and Agnes named her first daughter Sarah in honor of her sister-wife. Sarah Jardine Shumway (buried in Clarkston) is Sarah Emmett's great-great-great grandmother.

The view of the Brigham Tabernacle and the two steeples of the under-construction temple from the cemetery.
The Brigham City Temple. Built on the site of Norda's elementary school and two blocks east of her childhood home.
Across Main Street to the east from the temple is the Brigham City tabernacle-always a favorite. Notice the new snow on the mountains.

Backyard soccer fun with the cousins.
