Janelle Schriever Brown - one of our fav's on "Sister Wives"

Janelle Schriever Brown

What have we gleaned about Janelle? Not as much as we would like! Janelle

*Comes from a long line of LDS Mormon on both sides. 

*Graduate of Bountiful High School 

*She was married to Meri’s brother Adam Barber from ’88-’90.

*Obviously is college educated and so is her mother

*Appears pragmatic and level headed about some things; oblivious to others.

*Runs the finances for the household

*Seems to be more of a friend to Kody- at least pre Robyn – seems he leans to her for decisions. Kody calls her his “best friend”. Could be called the head of the operations.

*We’re not sure of her religious standing, how important that is to her. She says her children are free to choose their lifestyle. I think she married more for the family than the religion.

*Give Christine a lot of credit for the child rearing, but appears to be a great mom. 

*I like her, I like listening to her more than any of the other wives.

*Would love to see her lose weight, not for looks, but for health. 

*Lost many of her family members by joining the polygamist “lifestyle”

* Was very disturbed about the move at first – or so the THOUGHT until we saw her laugh about it on the Access Hollywood clip. 

*Likes to camp. Got me on that one. She looks like an indoors gal to me, but says she prefers the outdoors. Not Me! I’ll take the Hilton anyday!

*Gets to visit her mom, (Sheryl Usher Schriever Fryer)  and Kody’s dad, Winn, when going to Wyoming, since their married - that’s kinda cool or weird, depending how you see it. 

*I've never found Sheryl's parents- need them for the genealogy.

*Mother - Sheryl Lee Usher Shriever Fryer, now a wife to Winn Brown

*Father: Robert Alan Schriever, died in 1972

*Had a step father – Merlin Fryer. 

*Sister, Carrie

*Had a Company called the E Z Pantry. Also worked for the Govt. in Utah.

*Says fun, whimsical things on twitter.

*Her tree has no polygamists. All roots flow back to Sweden and Denmark, possibly why she has the fair skin and blonde hair. 

* I think she is VERY guarded in her words and her friendships. My guess, it would take a lot for her to trust you.  

* I hope she's deciding she wants more out of her relationship with Kody., She deserves it after 6 kids and a majority financial helper. I hope we see her get more kisses and snuggles this season.

*I think she's got some GREAT KIDS!

 Grandmother Margaret Pearl Schofield Schriever 

Margaret Pearl Schofield Schriever 9/30/1916 ~ 3/14/2007 BOUNTIFUL - Margaret S. Schriever, age 90, passed away Wednesday, March 14, 2007 in Sandy, Utah. She was born September 30, 1916 in Salt Lake City the daughter of Percy B. and Agnes S. Schofield. She attended East High School and graduated from the University of Utah at 19 years of age. She married LaVerl L. Schriever September 1, 1938 after falling in love with him many years before probably because of his Model A Roadster. They had three sons and a daughter. She taught kindergarten and first grade more than 35 years. She taught generations of Bountiful kids at West Bountiful and Hannah Holbrook Elementary Schools. She loved to read, but her favorite pastime was to "worry" about her family and they have given her plenty to worry about. She gave service constantly to family and friends. A single request by one of her family members or others and, without hesitation, she would drive cross country to help out and do something for them. As she aged it was difficult for her to accept anyone doing something for her, thinking she should not be putting people out! Margaret is survived by her son, Jerry; daughter, Suzanne; 13 grandchildren; and 38 great-grand-children. She was preceded in death by her husband, La Verl; sisters, Norma and Velda; brother, John; sons, Richard and Robert; and daughter-in-law, Mary. Very recently, she also lost her lifelong friend and sister-in-law, Mary S. Schriever. We all know they could not wait to get back together again. Funeral services will be held Tuesday, March 20, 2007, 11 a.m. at the Bountiful Tabernacle (Main and Center Street in Bountiful, Utah). Friends and family may call Monday evening from 6-8 p.m. at the Russon Brothers Bountiful Mortuary, 295 North Main, and Tuesday morning 9:45-10:45 a.m. at the church prior to services. Interment, Bountiful City Cemetery. (Source: Deseret News: 17 Mar 2007)

Grandfather LaVerl L. Schriever
Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, LaVerl L. Schriever left his pain filled body, June 27, 2002 to return to his Heavenly Father and to be united with his family members who have preceded him. He was born April 25, 1912 to William H. and Bertha Nelson Schriever in Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from West High School and went on to the University of Utah. He married Margaret Schofield in the Salt Lake Temple, September 1, 1938. They made their home in East Millcreek until they moved to Bountiful after LaVerl's employment took him to Hill Air Base. During the ensuing year he continued to become a master wood-worker; producing lovely buildings, exquisite furniture and furnishings, paintings and carvings that will continue to delight friends and family. LaVerl was a faithful member of the LDS Church and enjoyed the blessings of his participation.

Interment-Bountiful City Cemetery. (Source: Deseret News)

I wonder if she ever reconciled with her father’s family. In my viewpoint, if they didn’t, that’s their loss. She has beautiful children. How would they know a different life if shunned just for being born? That is very anti christian, to tell the truth. That’s about it for now! Can you think of any other items we know about Janelle?

Inside Story Polygamy - part 3 of 5 ALLRED/TLC

Part 3 contains Christine Brown's great uncle, Owen Allred. Who also happens to be David, Dayton, Breanna, and Aurora's great uncle. Who happens to also be Meri's 2nd cousin 4 times removed, and probably attached more to 2 of Meri's Mothers; He is also Kody's 2nd cousin once removed. Getting a picture here?

Owen seems the sweetest and the most sincere of any leader I have seen so far. (Might have to take that back, wrote this before CJ'S Story, couldn't of timed this any better if i tried- see if he looks like a thief to you. just goes to show you - you can't judge a book by it's cover) He gets very choked up. He also states he loves his children that don't follow the principle. Owen has since passed, but it is a look into the Allred family. His wife must of taught Kody Brown's wives the "freedom" message because she spews out the same reason for sharing a husband, why she can do whatever she wants! I don't know about you, but, yeah, so can I! Don't need 3 sister wives for that.

Then we flip back to the TLC church SCARY by my thoughts, more of Randy and a John Harper, boy, his first wife looks like her face would crack if she smiled. If that's happiness....But we learn they give EVERYTHING to the church. Yikes!
Please watch and discuss. We are learning our groups, aren't we? Education is power.
