On offer is a super, original 1938 - 1942 manuscript diary handwritten by Maxine Hadlock Layton [later Johansen] of Layton, Utah. The diary commences at an important juncture for any young woman; almost 16 years old at the beginning, from the Depression Era to the beginning of World War II the author, already a practical, teenage girl-next-door to a College age woman finding her place in the world. Entries range from the simple: "June 29th, 1938. Dad gave us 20¢ to go up town with Naomi C. to buy some candy." To a New Years entry that includes pop corn and lemon aid. Religion test in school much different than what everyone expected etc. Interestingly we note that she and many others go to the Joseph Smith Building to hear President Roosevelt speech the day after the heinous surprise attack by the Japanese on December 7th 1941. Her online obituary: Bountiful: Maxine Hadlock Layton Johansen, 80, passed away August 22, 2002. She was born January 25, 1922 in Layton, Utah to Lionel and Bessie Hadlock Layton. Maxine graduated from Davis High School and BYU, and worked as a secretary in Ogden for the railroad. Having married a career army officer, she traveled extensively, living in many states, Germany and Hawaii before it was a state. She especially loved her stay in Hawaii, where she learned to hula, and loved the Hawaiian people. An active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she was Primary president in Massachusetts, and in the Relief Society presidency. Maxine served as a Temple Ordinance Worker in the Salt Lake and Bountiful Temples, and served a mission with her husband in the Atlanta Georgia Temple in 1992-93, where she learned the ordinances in Spanish. Maxine had a gentle and loving nature, and enjoyed helping the missionaries and college students in her ward. She is survived by four children: Myrth Ann (Michael) Mills , Kingsport, TN; John (Jackie) Johansen, West Jordan; Jill (Robben) Hixson, Sandy; Leilani (Eric) Shepherd, Lee's Summit, MO; 16 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, one brother, James J. Layton, Layton; her twin sister, Kathleen Wintle, Honeyville; and another sister, Lucile Giddings, Stanwood, WA. She was preceded in death by her husband, Willard W. Johansen, her parents, a sister, Ione Layton and a brother Lionel (Bud) Layton. Overall G+.
