Aunt Lela Susannah Taylor Bruce was the seventh of nine children born to Arthur and Mary Ann Price Taylor. She was born Aug. 30, 1906 in Paris, Bear Lake County, Idaho. She had four brothers: William, James Robert, Carson, and Carl Price; there were three sisters: Margaret, Clara Isebell, and Sarah. A sister Lilly had passed away.

Growing up in Paris, Lela attended the Elementary School and the Fielding Academy on the hill above Paris. After graduation, she met Raymond Thomas Bruce who lived in Montpelier.

Aunt Lela and Uncle Raymond were married Sept. 1, 1928 in Paris, Idaho. They were blessed with Three sons, Raymond Cornell born Aug 4, 1929, Eldon born Dec. 4, 1930, and Ross born Mar. 4, 1932. All were born in Paris, Idaho.

The family later moved to Pocatello, Idaho for Uncle Raymond's work.

The little family were saddened by the death of their first son Cornell on Jan 2, 1945 following a ruptured appendix.

Aunt Lela was a stay-at-home mom who cared lovingly for her sons and husband. I remember their family coming to Paris for Lela's father, Grandpa Arthur Taylor's funeral in 1948.

Aunt Lela died suddenly at the age of 45 Nov. 29, 1951 in the local hospital in Pocatello, Bannock County, Idaho, leaving her husband Raymond and two sons, Cpl. Eldon T. Bruce in the U.S. Army stationed in Korea, and Ross.

She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and was active in the Relief Society in the Eighth Ward.

Funeral services were held in the Thirteenth Ward in Pocatello and burial was in the Montpelier, Idaho Cemetery.

The family felt very saddened at the sudden loss of wife, mother, and Aunt.
