I was talking with Bruce Nelson (Nelson Contractors) this morning (2/14/2017) and he tells me that demolition bids are now being accepted for the demolition of our beloved Granite High Schoo

Miss Mason, where are you when I need to sum up fifty years of life in two paragraphs?? First, I appreciate the reunion committee for the work in putting together the 50th and for each of you who have written your short biographies. I enjoyed reading each one. After graduation, I worked as a secretary for American Surety of N.Y. then attended the U. of U., met and married Boyd Mortensen in 1962. We headed for Oregon where Boyd attended graduate school at U.of O. I worked as a teacher aide. The following three years we lived and worked in Germany for the Dept. of Defense, Boyd taught school and I was with Special Services. It was fun as a young couple to travel Europe and study the history of those countries. Our first child was born and we headed back "to the land of the round doorknobs" and made our home in Oregon. Two more children were born and I became a stay-at-home mom. I took classes in real estate, banking and finance, interior design and basket weaving! I was a school volunteer and worked with the Boy Scouts. Also, serving in the Church was a big part of my life spending 20+ years as auxiliary presidents and several years with LDS Family Services.
Life was going well until my husband had a major heart attack in 1992 just as our son left for a mission to Germany. This was followed by a bone disease that left him paralyzed and we were told he would never walk again. I worked with him and a PT and Boyd did walk again and became known as the
"Miracle Man". In 2000, he suffered a severe stroke and was left paralyzed on one side. He was told he would never walk again, but he did! However he needed basic care and I became his full time caregiver. This is when I learned nursing skills. He became progressively worse and in 2007 he passed away. It was my privilege to take care of my good husband all of those years. Since then, I have been busy with children (all married and all college grads so they are paying their own way in life!). I have ten grandchildren which are such a joy to me. Spending time with family, doing family history and genealogy and helping others fills my happy days. I am doing what I love.
My best regards to each of you.
