Notes

Note
EVERETT BAIRD EULOGY given by John H. Dickson October 2, 1980
Everett Baird, Son of Robert Baird and Sarah Alice Nelson was born december 11, 1893 in Provo, Utah, The ninth of twelve children. He came to the Big Horn Basin with his folks at the age of six when they were called by the church in 1900 to help colonize the Big Horn Basin. He was always hard of hearing, so was quite reserved and quiet. He was quite athletic and could our-run all the boys around, expecially in distance running. As a boy he spent much time herding cows. He had a twenty-two gun and his dad used to give him three shells and expet him to bring home three rabbits for dinner that night a task he was usually able to accomplish. Also he and his brother Wally enjoyed going into Devils Canon, Cutting willows for fishing poles, and catching a mess of trout. They would salt them down and bring them home for the family. He always enjoyed the out of e doors, and could fish and hunt with the best of them.

In about 1915 a charming young lady came into his life when Marie Basett of Iona came to Cowley to attend the Big Horn Academy. When she returned to her home in Iona he continued to find ways to court her, either by riding horse back or with a buggy to go the 18 miles necessary, and he said many time he didn't have more than 50 cents to spend for their entire date. Following a two year courtship, they went by train to Salt Lake City where they were married in the Salt Lake Temple on March 7, 1917. This was a special thing in theri lives, adn also a very special goal they helped to set for their children, so much so that all nine of their living children were married in the temple.

Because of his hearing disability he shied away from and speaking or othe rrchcurch assignments except ward teaching, but it was very important to them to have their children accept all assignments, and from this union he lived to see his family hold High Councilors, Mission Presidents, and many missionaries, Stake and Ward Relief Society Presidents, Stake and Ward Primary and MIA Presidents, Patriarchs and Temple Workersl. There probably isn't a position other than that of the General Authorities that some of his family has't filled ior isn't filling at this time.

He was a very dependable, hard worker, and during his life time made a living as a farmer, a sheep man, grade school janitor, working at Corbor Plant, The Beet Dump, the sugar factory, the Oil Refinery, adn the Brick anbd Tile. They always raised a huge, beutiful garden, and suppled many neighbors and friends with vegetables besides supplying theri own family with their year around needs.

They really enjoyed traveling, and in their travels drove their car, and taking Helen and me with the, drove to Mexico City to meed their daughter, Rhea, as she returned home from her mission in Uruguay. Especially after he retired, it didn't take too muchto get them to jump into their little car and drive to Utah, Nevada, California and Washington to see all of their children.

Because of Marie's Health and his failing eye sigt, they decided they should be closer to some of the children, so in October, 1971, they packed up all their belongings and as he said, "moved to greener pastures," when they moved to Arlington, Washinton, to be near helen and Leo. They were there less than one year, however, When Marie died of cancer and left him feeling very much alone. She had been his eyes and ears for many years. He then moved around for a time staying with his children as long as they were able to care for him, but in may of 1975 it became necessary to place him in a rest home as he wasmoved to the North Big Horn Nursing Wing here in Lovell where he could be near Bessie and her family and also his brother, Wally, and where he could receive the care and attention that his chilren could no longer provide in their homes. Bessie says that he was really treated good in the nursing home and that any time of the day or night that she found him well cared for. We are truly gratelful for the hours of special care that Bessie and her family and Uncle Wally gave him while he was in the nursing home.

He passed away at the Big Horn Nursing Wing on Sunday, September 28, 1980, at about 4:30 P.M.

He was preceeded in death by his wife, Marie, a boby son, Bert, and his oldest daughter, June, who passed away one month ago today.

His posterity is great --205 in number. He is survived by eight children; Helen Dickson and Leo Baird of Arlington Washington Cathern Harston and Alice Brownell of Enumclaw, Washington; Flora Miller of Fallon, Nevada; Bessie Zeller of Lovell;p Frank Baird of North Edwards, California; and Rhea Wille of Lima, Peru. All of these children are here today with the exception fo Rhea who is with her husband serving as Mission President in Lima, Peru. he is also survived by 50 Grand Children, 104 Great grand children, on brother, Wallace Baird of Lovell, two sisters, Ruby Martin and Flora Beckstrom, both of Salt Lake City, All three of whom are her today. He is also survived by numberous neices and nephews, Many of his grandchildren and neices and nephews are also her today.
