Alzina was a good friend to people. I noticed she tried to always to be positive! We shared stories while working on Family History together thru the years. She loved that work so much, that it was more of a fun adventure. Many kindreds will be happy to welcome her on the other side of the veil, for the love she showed them. Also Alzina was in our Daughters of Utah Pioneers, SaraMar camp. She came to camp meetings even in her latter years, when it was hard to drive. Other members, like Joyce Smout would pick her up for the camp activities, and Alzina was so glad to come. She loved her DUP. Clair had a good, devoted and hard working wife, who endured life well. I would say to her descendants, to honor her name and do your best to live a good life.
