She attended the University of Utah during the depression and graduated at age 19 with two teaching degrees, elementary and secondary. She was a Master Teacher, receiving many awards during her career for intellectual and artistic inspiration. She and her husband and small children, were active in theater circles in Salt Lake City just before World War II, and she had a kindergarten TV program in the early days of live television. She earned a Masters of Arts from the University of Utah just after World War II, while supporting four small children by writing, painting and teaching. She received a life time award from Manzano Day School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she taught in the 50's and 60's. She received an Emeritus Award tram the University of Utah. She was accomplished in numerous fields. As an artist, she painted many portraits and landscapes, as well as illustrated children's stories, which she wrote. She was a pianist and composer of children's songs for school. She volunteered as a church pianist and organist at numerous denominations during her lifetime. For 25 years ('50's-'70's), she and her sister, Elaine Charvoz Holdaway, ran a wonderful girls camp at the Circle A Ranch in Cuba, New Mexico. Since the 1980's, she ran a Hostel and guest facility there with help from family members. She was a horsewoman and raised American Saddlebreds with her father, Ross Bartlett. She also broke and trained horses for the camp as well as cooked, told stories, and directed the art, drama and music programs. She taught in the Cuba, New Mexico School District for 17 years and was a member of the New Mexico Art Educators Association. She was a member of the Naciemento Women's Club in Cuba, and volunteered as a story teller at the Cuba Library and New Mexico Forestry Camp. She was a bright light and will be dearly missed.
