Edwin Maughan Jardine, age 92, passed away on August 27, 2011 of natural causes.
He was born in Clarkston, Utah on November 26, 1918 to Andrew and Phoebe Jardine. "I was my Mother's best looking boy," he often said. Edwin adored his four sisters Helen, Barbara, Rhea, and Kay.
Although he didn't have brothers, there were several cousins he shared a strong bond with. He learned the value of hard work growing up on the family farm.
Edwin was called as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 1941. He served in the Texas/Louisiana Mission "and there I made some everlasting friends" with the missionaries.
Edwin and his cousin Rex Thompson joined the Marine Corp in February 1944 during World War II. He was wounded in the Battle of Okinawa and received the Purple Heart.
Edwin married Marvel Olsen on November 28, 1952 in the Logan LDS Temple. They made their home in Bountiful, Utah, where their two sons Lyle and James were born.
Edwin worked at the Ogden Defense Depot for twenty years until he retired. Edwin served faithfully in many church callings. He valued his experience as a counselor to Bishop Stacey in Bountiful. He also grew to love the people of Clarkston while serving as bishop.
In 1984, Edwin and Marvel fulfilled a second mission working at the Church History sites in Palmyra, New York. When they returned home they continued to serve in the Logan Temple.
Edwin is survived by his two sons Lyle Jardine and James (Cindy) Jardine; sisters Barbara Clark and Kay Godfrey; nine grandchildren; and eleven great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Marvel Olsen Jardine; his parents Andrew and Phoebe Jardine; sisters Helen (George) Johnson and Rhea (Chuck) Evans; brothers-in-law Venice Clark and Evan Godfrey.
Family was important to Edwin. Since the passing of Marvel he enjoyed many phone calls and visits from Marvel's siblings and their families as well as his cousins and friends.
