Make-a-List Monday: Mormons

This list is of MPs who were Mormons, aka the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, aka LDS. I don’t know very much about the LDS church other than that they’re very conservative, mostly live in Utah, and have had a lot of controversy lately over their treatment of gays. Oh, and Elizabeth Smart is a Mormon. She and her husband are, as far as I know, the only LDS people I’ve ever met, though I could be wrong about that. It’s not like I go around asking people what church denomination they belong to.

Anyway, the list:

  1. Carmen Cavallero Garth
  2. June Goodman
  3. Steven Thell Koecher
  4. Sheila Kathleen McBroom
  5. Susan Marie Powell
  6. Patsy Ann Ravens
  7. Virgil Wade Tackett
  8. Nancy Wilcox

      Yes, but they aren’t on Charley. Elizabeth hasn’t even been missing long enough to be eligible.

      My great grandfather on my mother’s father’s side was Catholic. In fact he and the rest of the family disowned Grandpa for marrying my grandmother, a Protestant. (The fact that she was a divorced woman with two kids can’t have helped. It was 1952 and I believe people thought differently about divorced women back then.) I don’t know about my other great-grandparents.

    Susan Curtis? I think she was on way to an LDS conference when she disappeared.

    In indexing obituaries from the Hillsboro Ohio Press Gazette I found an obituary for Virgil Wade Tackett. It’s in the July 3, 1986 issue. “He disappeared the second week of June, 1986, as a result of a boating accident near a small fishing village off Pelican Island near Sitka, Alaska.”
    “…it was presumed he had fallen from the boat and drowned.”

    He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had been ordained a Priest in the Aaronic Priesthood. He had completed two years of Church seminary work.

    He sounds like a nice kid, all of 17 years old.
