back Leola the Teacher next
Many of us who remember Leola Seely Anderson remember her as a teacher, in one way or another. We’d like to collect some of those reminiscences to include in later editions of this memorial volume for her hundredth birthday, 19 June 2010. Have you written one? Have you thought you ought to write one?

If you contribute, we’ll do our best to include.

In the box below, for example, is an extract from a memorial piece her sister Verna wrote after Leola died.

Over a number of years, Boyd Packer and Leola collaborated in several areas of Church education, including the development of early morning Seminary for high-schoolers. It was he (then [1968] New England Mission President) who woke Richard up at 2 a.m. to tell him about the accident in France that had taken her life.

Verna May Seely Carter: …Our parents moved to Brigham City and Leola lived at home there while she taught school in the Brigham area. Among the many pupils she taught and who loved her was Boyd K. Packer now of the Council of the Twelve Apostles of our church. I was with Leola on Temple Square during the general conference when Boyd Packer was sustained a General Authority of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As Leola and I walked around the corner of the tabernacle we came face to face with Elder Packer. He gathered Sis up in his arms and said "my dear, dear little teacher!"
