Our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother returned unexpectedly to the arms of her Heavenly Father on Tuesday, June 23, 2009 while surrounded by her loving family. She resided at 3303 West 4460 South in the Granger area of West Valley City, Utah at the time of her death.
Peachie was born February 29, 1932 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Chief Samuel Barber Davies of the South Salt Lake Fire Department and Verla Minnie Jones.
She married Alfred N. Prudence and was later divorced. She married Dean A. Gardiner and they were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple.
Mom was a very devoted and generous mother and grandmother. She insisted on making everyone comfortable and had a knack for making you feel welcome.
As a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, she enjoyed years of service in the Jordan River Temple. Mom was extremely self-reliant and independent and often times stood as a pillar of strength to those around her.
She is survived by her children: Daniel "Rob" (Barbara) Prudence, Shaunna (Gary) Boswell, and Cory (Pam) Gardiner; grandchildren: Juston, Tiffany, Nicole, Kellen and Brittney; great-grandchildren: Zack and Kylee; sisters: Marion Wilson, Delores Nelson and Sherla Butcher.
