Zada Mae Draper Livingston, just one week short of her 93rd birthday, died very early in the morning of March 26, 1999.
Zada was born April 2, 1906, to James Arthur and Augusta Manetta Larson Draper in Moroni, Utah. She married her high school sweetheart, Jesse Welcome Livingston, on January 12, 1925, in Ely, Nevada. Their marriage was solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple on September 2, 1925. They lived almost all of their married life in Genola.Zada was very good at homemaking skills including cooking, sewing, tatting, and knitting and taught her daughters by example and hard work. Cleanliness, neatness and order were hallmarks of her life. She enjoyed and accomplished much in genealogy. She loved and served her husband and family as well as serving in the LDS church wherever called. Zada especially enjoyed her mission of LDS temple service with Jesse at Manti and then at Provo when the Provo temple opened; and then their proselyting mission together in the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida mission.
Zada will leave a significant void that only loving memories can try to fill for surviving daughters, Murvel (Doyle) Davis, West Covina, CA; Gayle (Bud) Wheeler, Arcadia, CA; Gwen (Mario) Cloward, Spanish Fork; Carolyn (Dennis) Stewart, Carey, ID; Norma (J. Karl) Worthington, Orem; and Nancy (Jerry) Allan, Orem. She is also survived by 26 grandchildren and a rapidly growing number of great-grandchildren and great great-grandchildren. Her husband, Jesse, a son, Scott, who died in infancy, and a granddaughter, Tahitia Allan, preceded her in death. Her brother, Glen Draper, and sisters, Lola Cooper and Donna Davis also survive her.
