Encora Worthen Montague Campbell

Written by Cynthia Mikesell

Encora Worthen Montague Campbell
By her granddaughter: Cynthia Mikesell

Encora Worthen was born on August 4, 1928 to Sarah Lena and Charles Grow Worthen.  She was born in the house on Main Street in Panguitch where they lived with her Aunt Aza and Uncle Joe.  When she was about 10 years old they moved from Panguitch to Magna and then Garfield.  She worked in the Body and Fender Shop at Todd Army Depot during her summer breaks from High School.  She didn’t graduate from Cypress High School in Magna because they moved to Colorado 3 weeks before Graduation.  She says she didn’t care anyway because the English teacher was an old maid and would prop her legs up on the desks right in front of the boys and didn’t care at all what the girls learned.  She married Lawrence David Jones in September of 1952 and their daughter Charlotte was born in May of 1953.  They later divorced.  She later married Lynn Montague and they had 4 children together; Steven, Richard, Patricia, and Christina.  While she was pregnant with Richard they were living in a trailer in Paige AZ and Lynn worked helping to build the dam there.  When the dam was finished their trailer was the very first one across.  The home she lives in now was purchased for $500 and was moved front Tintic to its present location in Salem.  It seemed like a good deal at the time however the rear end in the truck they had borrowed to move the house went out so they borrowed money from Grandpa to get it repaired.  Money was really tight while all the kids were little.  Everyone that knows Grandma knows that crocheting is one of her favorite pastimes but for a while she could only afford to buy 1 skein each month to work on afghans.
