  • Notes 
    • Grace OGDEN was born on the Frank BAKER farm one hour before assistance came. Her mother and father were alone at the time, so Mother sat up and directed Father on how to tie and cut the cord.

      Educated in the Richfield schools, she accepted a call for a mission to the North Central States for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, leaving Salt Lake City 13 March 1937. She returned from that assignment 1 Aug 1939. During the next year or two she served as president of the Richfield First Ward Young Women's Mutual Improvement Association.

      Moving to Salt Lake City, she worked in the Presiding Bishop's office in the church until her marriage in 1943. There followed years of moving from place to place in Mexico and Arizona, finally returning to Salt Lake City. Problems developed in the marriage and on 23 Dec 1958, she was divorced from Mr. LeBaron. After that time she supported her family by working in the hospitals of Utah County. A devoted and faithful mother, she raised her children to honorable adulthood. She is an honor and blessing to her parents and family.
