Berneice Hepworth Palmer, 86, passed away on Sunday, November 9, 2008 in Delta. She resided at 425 North Main Street in Hinckley, Utah at the time of her death.
Born April 24, 1922 in Hinckley, the second of 10 children to Orlando and Fern Elizabeth Reeve Hepworth. Attended schools in Hinckley and two years at BYU. A shortage of teachers during the war called her back to Hinckley to teach at Hinckley High School.
After the war, she returned to Provo and worked at Geneva Steel and began a long distance courtship with V. Leonard Palmer. They were sealed in Manti LDS Temple on October 23, 1951 and she returned home to Hinckley.
No stranger to hard work, being raised on a farm, often she would have to fill in on the cow milking and chores when winter storms and floods took Dad away to plow snow and road repair with State Road Dept. Mom was a skilled secretary and worked 21 years in Millard School District offices.
Especially at home working in her garden, always trying to rid the area of those ever present cursed weeds. One of greatest joys was sharing her harvest and love of cooking. Family was her most valued treasure. Strong testimony of the Savior and served him faithfully in church callings throughout her life.
Survived by children: Marilyn (Lee) Manwill, SLC, UT; Clemont "Mont" (Janice) Palmer, Bountiful; Peggy (Steven) Witters, Boise, ID; Patty (Blaine) Dickson, Syracuse; Debra Snyder, SLC; Michael (Caroline) Palmer; Paul (Paula) Palmer; and adopted daughter: Yvonne (Brent) Spencer, all of Hinckley; 34 grandchildren, 68 great-grandchildren, 12 great-great-grandchildren with four great-grandchildren on the way; brother: Lester; and sisters: Thola, Roma, Beth. Preceded in death by husband, two sons-in-law, one granddaughter, and one great-granddaughter; three brothers and two sisters.
Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, November 15, 2008 at 11 a.m. at the Hinckley Stake Center. Friends may call on Friday evening from 7-8 p.m. at Nickle Mortuary, Delta and on Saturday morning from 9:30-10:40 a.m.
