Our sweet mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Dollie B. Gaufin, slipped quietly away November 12, 1993 of causes incident to age and Alzheimer's disease.

Mom's life was filled with love and kindness as she reached out to those around her. She was always there when someone needed a loving hand or a kind act of service. Her neighbors, friends, family, and all those around her made up the world that she tried to make a little better through her love and example.

Mom married E. Brent Gaufin on June 1, 1935. They were later sealed for eternity in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Together they shared their love and joy in living for 54 years, until Dad passed away four years ago. Now they are together again.

Hers was a life devoted to service, whether it was in teaching, in community service, or in church callings. Mom graduated from Granite High School age the age of 16, and earned a teaching certificate from the University of Utah when she was 18. She spent many years teaching throughout Utah. She retired as a fourth grade teacher in the Jordan School District. She loved all the children she taught. She held many church positions and found the most happiness in doing those little acts of kindness and service that were so much a part of her.

She was born September 8, 1908 in Murray, Utah to Frank Burgner and Belva Cahoon.

Mom is survived by four sons: Kent (and Barbara), Lehi, Utah; Lynn (and Cynthia), Provo, Utah; Frank (and Brenda), Madera, Calif.; Alan (and Lorraine), Orem, Utah; 14 grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.

Mom was preceded in death by her loved Brent, her parents, two sisters, one brother and her grandson, Marshall.
