Geraldine Austin Moon, 84, our loving wife, mother and grandmother ("Mam") passed peacefully into the arms of her Father in Heaven on the morning of January 13, 2009.
She was born September 19, 1924 in Garland, Utah to Rulon and Eva Austin. Gerry attended Davis High School in Kaysville, Utah where she met the love of her life, Glen Leonard Moon ("Pop"). They were married for 67 years and had three sons, Jerry (Judy), Randy (Debra), and Kent (Tracy).
Gerry worked for Mountain Bell for 22 years and retired in 1981 to start her full time dream job as grandmother. Mam's house was always full of unconditional love, contagious laughter, and warm memories. Her grandchildren were her greatest joy. She was always up for a game of Phase Ten or Yahtzee and enjoyed making her famous grilled cheese sandwiches in between hands.
All of the grandchildren loved the occasional sleepover, traditional Christmas Eve party, and helping Mam make her legendary chocolate chip cookies. She was a devout member of the LDS Church and was sealed to Glen in the Salt Lake Temple.
She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, three sisters and two grandchildren (Jason and Michelle). Gerry is survived by her husband (sweethearts forever), three sons, nine grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. Gerry is also survived by her devoted sisters, Ruela (Dick) Weeks and Marsha Austin Burns.
