Afton Romney Soderborg
11/3/1921 ~ 6/3/2004

Afton Romney Soderborg, 82, a saintly woman, died June 3, 2004 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Though her recent journey may have appeared hard, it is now through. It is indeed, for her, a happy day. All is well.

Afton was born Nov. 3, 1921 in Cornish, Utah, to Park and Mary Vilate Lee Romney. She was raised in Salt Lake City where she met Alvin Charles Soderborg. They were married Sept. 22, 1947 in the Salt Lake Temple.

Afton worked for many years as a secretary, including a time with the FBI during World War II and later with the Utah State Board of


She was a faithful and loving Latter-day Saint. She held leadership and teaching positions in nearly every ward auxiliary, served three missions with her husband, and was a temple worker in the Salt Lake Temple.

Afton was preceded in death by her husband Alvin in 1996, her brothers Derald, Clyde, and Lee, her sisters Carrol Curtis and Lettie Dixon, and by a grandson Ross Cundick.

She is survived by a brother Milton, her sisters Bea Berg and Myrlene Wiest, her children Kathleen (Martin) Vander Veur, Lynne (Ken) Dawson, Laurel (Robb) Cundick, Mark (Paula) Soderborg, Lee (Karen) Soderborg, Gayle (Dan) Roberts, and Eric Soderborg, 29 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.

The family expresses its appreciation to the kind and devoted caregivers at the Highland Care Center.
