Archie Pictures

The  three groups of pictures below were given to me by Archie McCarrie. He is not sure who the people are and if you know would you let me know so I can pass the information on to him. Some of them I think are pretty obvious. On the first one there is a picture of a piece of mining equipment and he is not sure the Pic was even taken in Hiawatha. If you know where the pic was taken--- and exactly what the equipment is would you please let me know. Could one of them be YOU??

Sarie Martino Guy Obituary



Sarie Guy


Sarie Guy

CARBONVILLE/ST. GEORGE - Our loving mother, nanny, sister, friend and beautiful wife, Sarie Martino Guy passed away peacefully at her home in St. George on Dec. 10, 2012 at the age of 67. She was born July 24, 1945 in Price to Sam S. and Mary Ann DiMaggio Martino. Sarie was raised in Price, where she graduated from Carbon High School and the College of Eastern Utah. She married Dan Guy on Sept. 11, 1965. They had two children - Dana & David. They built a house in Carbonville in 1973 and she turned it into a home for her family for the next 37 years. She always tried to make people feel at home in her house, and her children have fond memories of the place filled with family and friends. Sarie was an accomplished cosmetologist as well as a homemaker, and she spent many years working with her own salon, and with the public. She enjoyed the outdoors, gardening, fishing and especially camping with family on the Gentry Mountain. As health issues made it more difficult to go to the mountains, she spent more time collecting antiques with her husband and special friend Lynn. With all of her talents and hobbies, her greatest love was for her family. If you knew Sarie for only a few minutes, you also knew how special her children and grandchildren were. There was never a Nanny that loved her grandkids more than this lady! In her 67 years of life, she touched numerous lives. She will be sorely missed and never forgotten. We look forward to the day we are reunited with her. She is survived by her husband Dan. W. Guy, St. George; daughter, Dana (Sam) Marrelli, Helper; son, Dave (Rebecca) Guy, Montrose, Colo; grandchildren Lacie and Haley Sheppard, Kylee and Logan Guy; sister, Rosanne (Ronald) Kulow; brother, Sam (Dianne) Martino. She is preceded in death by her father and mother Sam and Mary Ann Martino. "God saw you getting tired, When a cure was not to be. So He wrapped his arms around you, And whispered, "come to me." You didn't deserve what you went through, So He gave you rest. Gods's garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best. And when I saw you sleeping, So peaceful and free from pain I could not wish you back to suffer that again. Memorial Mass, Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012, 11 a.m., St. Anthony Catholic Church in Helper. Family will receive friends at the church Saturday morning one hour prior to services. Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price, where friends are welcome daily and may share memories of Sarie at www.mitchellfuneralhome.net.

My family & I want to thank you for all the support that has been given to us by the Hiawatha Friends. Those who sent condolances, cards and telephone calls, and also the ones that came to the visitation and the funeral. Everyone talked about what a kind & concerned person my wife Donnie was. Of course I have known this for years, but I had the advantage of spending 56 + years with her. All our friends have a hard time understanding the close relationship that the people of Hiawatha have. And I have a hard time explaining it-- it just seemed to happen? Anyway-- THANKS-Wally

Our loving Wife, Mom, Grandma & “Grandma Great” passed away in Salt Lake City 1 Dec 2012 after struggling many years with diabetes and its complications. She was born 26 Aug 1934 in Seattle, Washington. She was the oldest child of Neldon & Grace (Winn) Wickman. Donnie was raised in Castle Dale by her aunt & uncle Feno & Evie Huntington. She met Wallace Baldwin while he was home on leave from the U.S.A.F. and they were married 4 Feb 1956. Donnie was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She was called at age 16 as a Primary Teacher & at 26 she was called as a Relief Society President.

Donnie received her higher education at BYU. Later in life she continued her education with classes at Idaho State University & the U of U.
The family moved to Idaho in the 1960’s and Donnie taught a private Kindergarten in her home there. She always included 2 or 3 children with speech disabilities who were recommended by a friend who was a speech therapist.

Her favorite spots were Joe’s Valley & Island Park in Idaho. In the Fall of her life she loved to travel. She and Wally & many friends took several cruises to many parts of the world & Donnie loved it. In the Winter of her life came her health struggles. However, in between them she & her family and many friends enjoyed time at the family cabin near Fairview.

Donnie always loved to knit, crochet, scrapbook and do “crafties.” She always said that was her relaxation.

Donnie has always been an out-going, positive thinking lady. She had many friends & was always there to cheer on & help anyone who was having troubles. She was especially devoted to her family- both immediate & extended.
