  • Notes 
    • Djalmar Emanuel Lund, son of Rasmus Hansen Lund and Petrine Jensen was b o rn 4 May 1882 in Sollested, Lolland, Denmark. His parents were well-to- do . They owned considerable property including a hotel. The Lunds joine d th e Church (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) in 1890 and e migra ted to Utah with Djalmar, arriving in Salt Lake City, 3 September 1 893 wh en he was 11 years old. Djalmar lived with Marius and Dagmar Lund , an aun t and uncle, in two-room house for a few months until his fathe r starte d a grocery store at 339 State Street.

      Djalmar was baptized 3 October 1893 by John T. Thorup in Salt Lake Cit y , and confirmed 5 October by Joseph McMurrin. He was sealed to his pare nt s in April 1895. He lived in Salt Lake City until the Spring of 1895 w he n he moved to Pleasant Grove with his parents. The Lunds bought a 90 a cr e farm. Running a farm and selling fruit and vegetables was very diffe ren t from running a hotel, but the Lunds made good. While in Pleasant Gr ove , Djalmar was ordained a deacon by Bishop I. E. Thorne and was late r mad e secretary of the Deacons Quorum. He had had some schooling in Den mark a nd made good progress in the school at Pleasant Grove. Neighbors , tryin g to influence their teenagers for good often said, "why don't yo u act li ke Djalmar Lund? He is always so neat and clean and polite." A f ew year s later the family moved to Crescent. Djalmar helped pay for a ho me for t he family, paying $2500 in 3 years. Djalmar came to Salt Lake Ci ty and wo rked in a fruit store on State Street. He attended the 9th War d in 1901.

      In 1902 he met Aagot Marie Randby at the Queen of the May Celebration th r ough a friend, Dagmar, who already knew him and liked him at the time a n d was knitting him some socks. Aagot had been crowned queen of the cele br ation. He was very much taken with her. He courted Aagot and married h e r in the Salt Lake Temple on 27 May 1903. On 2 June 1903 in the Salt La k e Temple Annex, Djalmar was set apart as a missionary. On 3 June 190 3 h e departed for the Scandinavian Mission, leaving a new bride. His wif e li ved with his parents in Crescent while he was away. The day he lef t for h is mission he wrote in his journal: "I did not sleep any that nig ht. My t houghts being upon my loved one which I had left; not to mingl e with the m for two years or more. I left them with the hope within me t hat God, ou r Heavenly Father, would take them as well as myself, under h is kind keep ing and protecting hand while I would be away, that when th e time comes t hat I again can return to dear Zion in the valleys of th e mountains, an d find them all among the faithful and living and enjoyin g health and str ength."

      On his mission, Djalmar was under the direction of Adam L. Petersen an d H an Christian Hansen. Djalmar presided over the Otter Branch and the n ove r the Odense Branch. He was much loved by the people with whom he l abore d on his mission. He was invited to friends for dinner or chocolat e and c ake almost every day. He was not only a missionary but sang in th e choi r and played the accordion. It was the custom to deliver tracts an d book s and have gospel discussions, which he did faithfully.

      While on his mission, Djalmar met Aagot's parents. Her father objecte d t o her marrying a missionary, but was very impressed when he met Djalm ar , who always had his shoes shined and clothes pressed. One incident t o sh ow his helpfulness and dedication to his work: at a Sunday School ou tin g on his mission he writes: "When going home, I helped some friends w it h their children on account of the rainy weather. After I called on Si ste r K. Nielsen where I had Rodgrod whereafter we went to the hill to g o ou t and attend a baptism. Sister H. Nielsen and M. Jacobsen were alon g to h elp with two young ladies who were to be baptized. I performed th e ordina nce after the manner which our Savior and the apostles performe d it. We p erformed this ordinance in the middle of the night so as not t o be distur bed by anybody."

      When Djalmar returned from his mission he and his wife lived on the we s t side in a little house where their first child, Evangeline, and seco n d child, Thelma, were born. He worked for Madsen Furniture Company full -t ime and went to night school at L.D.S. Business College. The couple pl ann ed to build a new home on West Capitol Street. While this constructio n wa s started, Aagot and the children lived in Ogden with a cousin. The y star ted out with two rooms - kitchen, dining room, and an out-house. T he fami ly located in the 24th Ward, Salt Lake Stake in 1911. Djalmar wa s ordaine d a Seventy on 4 November 1919 and was set apart as one of th e president s of the 30th Quorum on 5 September 1926, the same year he wa s appointe d a member of the Temple Committee of the Ward. He was also ma de the hea d of the genealogical committee at this time.

      Upon graduating from L.D.S. Business College, he found employment with W e stern Building and Loan Co where he was employed for 35 years as an acc ou ntant and later as the head accountant. In 1929 the Lunds moved to th e Un iversity Ward and a beautiful new home at 266 Douglas Street. Djalma r wa s a ward clerk for ten years, serving under three bishops and eigh t bisho prics. He was on the Temple Committee for six years and a secreta ry of th e High Priest Quorum. After his retirement, Djalmar worked for t he Americ an National Insurance Co. and as an assessor in the Murray Dist rict. He a lways claimed that because he paid his tithing, he was never o ut of work.

      Djalmar went to Seattle, Washington as a delegate for the Danish Brother h ood. It was his first trip on an airplane. He was very uneasy. He atten de d the meetings fulfilling his assignment as treasurer of the organizat io n and then enjoyed spending time with his daughter, Evangeline, who re sid ed there. He took Evangeline on a boat trip through Puget Sound. Hi s son- in-law gave him a salmon, which he brought home to his wife and pr esente d it to her at the airport. His brother, Alex, died while he was i n Seatt le, and because he was detained, he made his first airplane tri p to the f uneral.

      Many trips were made to Sacramento to see their daughters, Thelma and La V on. This was usually done at Thanksgiving time and was the highlight o f t he year as they journeyed on a train. Djalmar loved Christmas. It wa s a r itual to make pepperknutters with the children. All of the family g ot aro und the kitchen table and rolled the spicy, hard confections. The y were c ut into small pieces and then baked. We didn't enjoy eating the m as muc h as making them. The Christmas tree had to be carried to thei r home as t he couple did not own a car. Djalmar did not worry about th e budget at th is time of the year. The gifts that each child was to rece ive was doubl y checked to be sure they were adequate. The tree was decor ated Christma s Eve and the gifts placed under it to completely surpris e the children C hristmas morning. There was a tradition that the childre n really loved: b efore the tree decorations were removed, the family wou ld light the candl es, hold hands and sing around the Christmas tree. Chr istmas tree parties , a Danish and Norwegian festivity, were the deligh t of all of the childr en. Everyone would dance around the Christmas tree . They served hot choco late and cakes and Christmas stockings were give n to the children, who al ways came attired in their best clothes usuall y received as gifts at Chri stmas.

      Family nights were held regularly. Chairs were put in a circle. The fami l y would kneel and pray. Lessons were presented on the gospel. The child re n were always urged to attend Sunday School. At that time, the older m emb ers of the family attended Sacrament meeting. Saturday night was bat h tim e. A big tub was placed in the center of the kitchen. The childre n were l ined up by Father Saturday night and all of the shoes were shine d. The ch ildren wore white starched dresses with colored bows and whit e shirts. Vi olin, piano and saxophone lessons were encouraged by the par ents. Dancin g lessons were provided for those interested.

      Many trips to the park on the trolley with a nickel for lunch were enjoy e d by the children. Their mainstay was potato salad carried in a glass j ar . It was very difficult to make the choice as to how that nickel woul d b e spent. Trips to Salt Aire on the trolley were more of a rarity.

      Djalmar enjoyed a rich life, loving his children and enjoying the compan i onship of his wife. Many a midnight snack was enjoyed after the childr e n were in bed. Danish pastries and Glaus goodies were treats for the tw os ome as they laughed and reminisced together.

      Djalmar passed away on 11 July 1966 in a nursing home after a bout wit h c ancer and several heart attacks. His eyesight failed him after he ha d ha d cataract operations on both eyes and an automobile accident jarre d th e eyes causing them to not heal properly.
