I have been a Visiting Teacher to Leda Young for eight years. She has lived with her son and daughter in law, Louise since her husband died and she moved here from Monticello, Utah. Leda was so fun to visit. Up until 18 months ago she was never without some handwork to work on when we visited her. What stories she had about her experiences as a Visiting Nurse and then as a surgical nurse in the Monticello Hospital. She had assisted in operations along side Russell Nelson a few times!
My friend, Anne Kelsch and I did the bouquets and the ballons for the party. The Youngs reserved a banquet room at the Village Green, where Leda resides. About 40 came to have soup and finger foods as we gathered to honor this wonderful woman.
