Florence Barton, Solomon, Mellen, Loveland, was released from this world, November 1, 1997, in Salt Lake City, Utah, joining her loving family and friends who have gone before.

She was born June 18, 1913 in Kaysville, Utah, to Oscar C. and Nora Vest Barton. Florence learned the value of hard work and had much joy in this life through the example of her parents and family.

She learned faith in God and hope in her Savior, Jesus Christ, through the precepts and principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her great faith in Christ and love of family carried through grief and sorrow which came her way. Her children brought her great joy that cannot be expressed in word alone. She cherished and rejoiced much of her life in each of their accomplishments. Florence worked as a nurse, florist, sales clerk and homemaker. Member of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers. Served in callings to Primary, Young Women, Relief Society and others. She loved good music, played the piano and loved to sing.

Preceded in death by husbands, James Lavar Solomon, Joseph Harold Mellen, Chester G. Loveland; daughter, Marilyn Jean Mellen Ramezani; sisters, Vera (Lee) Thurgood, Vivian Barton, Edith (Thell) Carrol; and brother, Wendell (Fuchsia) Barton.

Her children wish to express their sincere thanks for the love of family and friends who have come to their side at their loss. Though hard to let her go, we rejoice in knowing she will hold our hand again. Though gone from our sight, she lives in our heart. We look forward to hearing her voice which was silent so long, and the love in her eyes, and the touch of her hand.

We thank the staff at Hillhaven for their love and care of Mother following her debilitating stroke.

Dear Heart

This much my spirit understands

Our hearts are always holding hands

Beside me or my distant star

My happiness is where you are

Through laughter, sorrow , joy or tears

Closer and closer through the years

This much my spirit understands

Our hearts are always holding hands
