Elaine Rich

An amazing lady, Elaine Fay Soderquist Rich, 88, of Vernal, has passed on.

She was born on April 15, 1924, in Sunnyside, Utah, to Carl Arthur and Marie Wiest Soderquist. She married Kenneth Rich in August of 1942. He passed away in 1993. There was not much that Elaine could not do. She could go from irrigation boots and a shovel to a dress and high heels in no time. She could feed her cows, tend the fields, till and plant the garden, can everything in sight and then prepare a meal for her family. And then when company showed up unexpected, she could add some magic and an extra potato and feed them all.

She loved her family and friends very much and will be missed by all.

Elaine is survived by her sister; Lorna Mayberry; daughter Dorothy (Bob) Pitchford; granddaughter Tonie (Michael) Fagnan; two great-grandchildren, Kyle and Kenny Pearson; and three great-great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband Ken; son Craig; and brother Duane Soderquist.

Viewings were Sunday evening from 6-8 at the Blackburn Mortuary and one hour prior to services at the Chapel. Burial was in the Vernal Memorial Park under the care and direction of the Blackburn Vernal Mortuary.
