Enid Hall Blazzard – by Ward W. Blazzard


Enid and Beth worked hard together on their family geneology. She had quite a faith promotion experience when she was directed by the sprit of someone from beyond in getting a date very impertnent to her Grandmother Hall after searching many months for the information. It was obtained in the offices of the President of the Church.

Attended Los Angeles Temple 21 March 1957 and witnessed sealing of her father’s frother, Arthur G. Hall, and his wife, Mae D. Holm or Jorgenson. Art later did the temple work for Enid’s father, Clyde Autin Hall, his baby brother, and his father Allen Hall. Art has been going to temple service when his health permitts.

During the winter and spring of 1960, Enid suffered from sinus headaches She also had a cold most of the winter and lost her voice completely for several days at a time during a period of a month. Sinus trouble accompanied the cold and she needed medical attenton on two or three accounts to clear out the sinus infection, which was causing her to have arthritis and knots forming in some of the joints of the feet and hands. She had an unusual amount of migrain headaches. These maladys seemed to be a normal condition with her each winter and her family was not particularly alarmed over the continuing beadache until in April. (As I look back now I see she was concerned but all the time she hid it from us.)

Enid and Laura Jane spent a week in the fore part of April in St. George while I was in Portland on business. She thought the warm climate would clean up her cold. But she felt so miserable she wasn’t able to get much in the sun. She and Jane attended the St. George Temple one session and got the name of an Allen whom she thought might be part of her fathers line. As she and Beth had come to a stop on that line she figured to run it down as soon as she felt better.

Enid and I had many wonderful experiences together. As husband and wife we were completely happy and adjusted to each other and our families very easily. She was a wonderful homemaker, always had her part of the responsibility taken care of. She was serving and well talented in all the arts of the home from entertaining our friedns to cooking to sewing, to all the little chores. She repaired her own appliance cords and did a lot of things that are usually left to the man of the house.

She had a convicition of her religion and taught hur daughter Jane its principles. Through gentle urging and example she got me interested in attending more to church duties and I was always proud of her work and leadership ability in the church. I owe a lot to Enid for her gentle influence in my life and for the strength of her will. She knew what she wanted and she set about getting it quietly.
