Adda Lottie Gibson was born 15 Jul 1892 in Price, Utah. She was the daughter of Arthur Ernest & Adella Cowley Gibson. She was given the birth name of Addie Charlotte but soon changed it to Adda Lottie. From Lottie's own record: "I did not attend school until 8&1/2, when I moved with my parents to Sunnyside, Utah. We moved to Mack, CO in 1906 where I went to Greeley Normal [school]. Attended Fuita Union High the next year. We moved to Provo, Utah in 1909-went to B.Y.U." Lottie was one of the first women to graduate from Brigham Young Academy (BYU) and was editor of the yearbook [the Mizpah]in 1912. She was a gifted writer and student and would use her writing ability to build a career in later life.
Lottie married Fred Oakley Storrs on 22 June 1914 in Colorado. They were the parents of seven children (Lydia Donna, Irma Ruth, George Arthur, Sarah Edna, Helen Maude, Glenna Gene and Nana Dale). Lottie was a woman ahead of her time and worked outside the home most of her adult life. Early in their marriage they lived in Storrs, Utah which was a mining camp in Spring Canyon above Helper. Lottie leased the confectionary & contracted with the US Mail Service to run the City Post Office from the same location. After several moves, the expanding family settled in Price and Lottie decided to do what she kenw best-Publishing. She began a daily newspaper which she called "The Dailey Reminder". Her children grew up running the sheets through the machine and delivering the papers. They also grew up with the "thought for the day" , the bits of wisdom Lottie put in each edition of the paper. Her daughter Irma said "Half the time I had no idea what she meant by them. But as I have matured and grown older, I have 'experienced' their meanings." These bit's of wisdom have become known to generations of family as "Lottie's Logic".
Lottie died 16 Apr 1935 in Price, Utah at the age of 42.
