Mother spent her early years in Wallsburg, Utah. Upon the premature death of her mother, she spent three years with her Aunt Rosette Sabey Graham in Provo, Utah, then returned to Wallsburg. After marriage she spent several years in Wallsburg and later moved to Heber City where she spent the remainder of her life.
Mother was devoted to her immediate and extended family. She was a true and devoted friend and a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In the church she served as president of the Primary and the Relief Society. She also served in various capacities in the Sunday School, the Mutual Improvement Association and at Wasatch Stake Genealogical Library. Her life was lived in the service of others.
Mother was a homemaker. Her home was inviting, always neat and clean and a pleasant place to be. She was also an excellent cook. The aroma of fresh baked bread is a lasting memory for all family members.
Mother loved flowers. She was charter member and served as president of Heber City Garden Club. Her floral arrangements were consistent award winners at the Wasatch County Fair. The flower beds surrounding her home were an orchestrated kaleidoscope of color. She also loved to knit and crochet.
Mother loved much and that love was reciprocated by all who knew her. She will be missed.
The family extends their grateful appreciation to Dr. Gregory Taylor and the nursing staff of the Heber Valley Medical Center.
