Temple work / Amy Shawgo

Temple work / Amy Shawgo

Dates: 1992 October

Report by Brigham Young University folklore student Amy Shawgo, who heard the story several years earlier from Beck Ditty, a female friend whose source purports to know the protagonist. Story recounts how a woman is serving in the temple (and has a bad feeling, calmed by a temple worker) when her daughter is sucked underwater while playing in a canal. Later she gives her rescuer's name: It is the woman for whom her mother was doing temple work.
