Laurel Burton was born March 3, 1925 at Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County , Utah, the daughter of Jacob P. Burton and Lucille Harker. Laurel gradu ated from Granite High School in 1943, where she had been a member of th e school orchestra, president of the Girl’s League, and a member of the “ G” Trio. She was student body president at Madison Junior High School, t he only girl ever to have held the position. She was a very good violini st and had a beautiful singing voice. She sang duets with her brother Pe art, played in the school orchestra and participated in many vocal singin g groups.
During the winter quarter,1942, at B.Y.U., I shared a dorm room with Ja y Peart Burton. He was such a handsome brute, dark complexioned and viva cious. He had a picture of his younger sister, Laurel Burton, on his dre sser, whom he said was engaged to a missionary in the field. This girl’ s picture was so beautiful to me that I finally persuaded Peart to arrang e a blind date for me with her to go to the Rainbow Rendevou, a famous da nce spot in Salt Lake. Laurel was just as vivacious as her brother an d more beautiful than her picture. I was so enthralled and excited abou t that date, life began to take on a whole new perspective. To think tha t I might have the opportunity to share my life with such a pure and love ly person was really something. Of course, so far, this was all just i n my little mind.
