My dear mother, Arvella Johnson Beaton, passed away suddenly on May 22, 2009.

She was born at home on May 7, 1916 to John Enoch Johnson and Florence May Rupp in Salt Lake City, the fifth of nine children.

Married Allen D. Beaton on April 26, 1946, after 40 years until his passing on June 7, 1986.

She always spoke fondly of her growing up years in Salt Lake City putting on church plays and enjoying the simple pleasures of having fun with family and friends. Also enjoying her mother's delicious home-cooking. She was active in many LDS church callings, her most favorite being music. She had a beautiful soprano voice when she sang at the Capitol Theatre, on radio and was asked to join the Tabernacle Choir. She also led many church choirs.

Mom was a true lady who had her hair done every week, wore stylish clothes, accessories and painted her nails up to the last. She loved her parents very much and cooked and cleaned every day for them in their old age, which she called a "gift of love". She also gave of herself to many others.

Mom was fourth generation Salt Lake LDS, all of whom are laid to rest in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.

Preceded in death by two brothers and two sisters. She is survived by her son, Greg, with whom she resided; and four sisters.

She was laid to rest on Wednesday, May 27, 2009 in the Salt Lake City Cemetery under the direction of Russon Brothers Bountiful Mortuary.
