Jutta Engelhardt Almy, 95, of Albuguerque, New Mexico, died 24 May 2005. Jutta was born November 29, 1909, in Salt Lake City, Utah, the daughter of Frederick and Amanda Engelhardt, who had immigrated from Oberwiederstedt, Germany. Jutta grew up speaking German at home and English in school. After high school, Jutta attended and graduated from the University of Utah in 1932 with a bachelor's degree in German and French.
Jutta was a member of Delta Zeta Sorority. In college, she met Adrian Lee Almy who was working on his master's degree in metallurgy. After graduation, she worked as a schoolteacher in the Salt Lake City public schools, teaching sixth grade math and eighth grade history. During this time as a school teacher, she wrote letters to Lee for three years while he worked at mines in New Mexico and Texas.
During the depression they were finally able to get married on Valentine's Day in 1935 in Deming, New Mexico because Lee had been offered a job as a mining engineer for a Bolivian tin and tungsten mine. After getting married, they departed for New York City where they caught an ocean liner for the trip to Peru and from there by train to the high mountains of Bolivia, where they lived at an elevation of 10,000 feet above sea level.
They returned to the United States in 1938, moving to Kingman, Arizona where Lee worked in a lead and zinc mine, then to Morenci, Arizona where he worked in a copper mine, and then to Duncan, Arizona where he worked in a floride mine. In 1940 they moved to Carlsbad where they settled down.
