Household Domestic

Hello Dear Reader,
After some temporary jobs Mary (Hall) went to work in Provo for a lovely woman by the name of Anna Stone. She was a household helper and learned many things from Mrs. Stone. One of Mary’s tasks was doing laundry . Anna was very fussy and taught Mary to be an excellent ironer. Clean, beautifully pressed laundry was something Mary took pride in the rest of her life.

She also did housework for Anna, helped with the cooking, and tended children. I believe that she actually lived with the Stones during the week and went home to Lake Shore on weekends. Meanwhile, she also continued to date.
