Emma Scholl journal:
Glen Marries Audrey 1941
December 18th, 1941, Audrey married Glen Arthur Kroksh in Mesa Temple. Glen took his mother, Audrey and me to Mesa in his car. We left L.A. December 17th about 6:00 a.m. We stayed in Mesa that night. The temple found us rooms. Glen stayed at Sister Brown's. Audrey, Vera Kroksh and I stayed at Petersons's lovely home. They were away and told us to make ourselves at home, even told us to help ourselves to food we could find. Vera did up the housework, washed dishes etc. She slept down-stairs. Audrey and I slept in a sleeping porch upstairs. Audrey and I went to the temple fasting. She was the only bride, but the matron gave the talk and treated her same as if there were others. I shed tears most of the time she was giving the talk. Glen's mother couldn't go to the temple with us. On the way home we filled the car with delicious Arizona oranges, grapefruits and dates, much better than California fruit and cheaper. We got to our house late
