James Hanson Duckworth passed away peacefully after a long and happy life on 2 March 2011 in the home of his daughter. He leaves behind a legacy of faith and love to his wife and family of four children, Anne (Frank) Walters, Susan (Russell) Ence, James Stephen (Pat) Duckworth, and Jane (Gary) Jensen, as well as 23 grandchildren and 48 great-grand children.
Jim was born on 28 January, 1915 in Nampa, ID and adopted six months later by his parents, James and Elizabeth Hanson Duckworth. He had three siblings: Roxie [Estella Jensen] Duckworth Haws, Muriel [Annie Salena]Duckworth Atwood, and [Nathan]Rex Duckworth.
Jim is survived by his wife of 71 years, Rhea Jean Brown Duckworth, whom he married on 30 June 1939. He lived a life of faithful service to his God, his family and his country.
Jim served a full-time LDS mission to the Northwest States mission and later served a second full-time mission with his wife in the Arizona, Tempe mission. He has served in various LDS ward and stake positions, and sang in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for 17 years.
As a young man, Jim served in the U.S. Army Air Corps and later worked as a civil servant at nearby Hill Air Force Base. We know it is only a temporary separation, but we, his family and friends, love him dearly and will miss him.
