Our mother gave a lifetime of service in all the organizations of the LDS church, was an ordinance worker in the Provo Temple and served as a true partner with Dad in his many religious responsibilities. At the young age of 32 years, Mother and Dad were called to serve a 3 year mission in the British Church Building Program. Two of their children were born while serving there. They built a beautiful chapel near the London Temple and worked miracles. Their professional lives were centered in the construction business. Mother and Dad were together both at home and at work. Dad ran a successful business building over 100 chapels across Utah and surrounding areas. Mother was at his side running the home office and keeping books.
Mother lost dad in 2008 to terminal ALS but chose to greet her widowed life with a smile. She inspired those who met her. She tackled her own health challenges with courage and determination and wanted to be a compassionate friend to all. She lived in assisted living for the last four years of her life. It was a fun time to sit at Mother’s dinner table there and enjoy lively stories and good conversation. She found many new friends whom she loved and they loved her back.
Survivors include: Douglas (Deborah) Moore; Debra (Bob) Fotheringham; Dan (Ali) Moore; Karen (Randy) Diamond; 24 grandchildren; 55 great grandchildren; and a great great grandchild.
