Learning and education was always important to Mom. She attended schools in American Fork, Tooele High School and Utah State University. Service was a part of her nature. She served in a Relief Society Presidency, as Primary President and as Young Women’s President twice. Mom and Dad served as Service Missionaries and as Ordinance Workers at the Salt Lake Temple for many years. Mom enjoyed her career as Supervisor of the Tooele County School Foodservice Program. Her hobbies included a personal quest for the ‘next’ recipe to try. She had a lifelong love affair with books and enjoyed her membership in The Bathtub Readers Book Club. She enjoyed sewing, quilting, knitting and crocheting. Even though Mom and Dad traveled extensively making new memories together they always looked forward to returning home. Now, they are Home together again.
The family would like to express gratitude for the many acts of kindness extended to Mom from members of the Third Ward, her attentive aids and staff from Home Instead Senior Care and her compassionate Harmony Home Health hospice nurses.
