Regina (Gina, Jeanie) was born in Idaho Falls, ID on December 10, 1954 to Herbert and Edith Poole Gleave. She enjoyed a happy young life, filled with loving parents, siblings and nephews. Her vivacious personality and exceptional ability to remain cheerful and accepting, won her tremendous popularity and endearment during her years growing up in Idaho Falls.
She was particularly gifted in music performance and composition, frequently wowing students in school assemblies and as a semi-professional in several entertainment spots in her home town.
After her graduation from Bonneville High School in 1973, her family relocated to Salt Lake City, UT when her father secured an engineering position. She promptly began attending the University of Utah where she met the love of her life Randall Kluge. After a long friendship, they were married in the Salt Lake Temple on April 15, 1977.
She became a mom on March 29, 1983 with the adoption of a beautiful daughter, Breann and again on May 27,1984 with another adoption (and surprise) to her handsome son, Shawn. She lived for her children and grandchildren. They were her life.
We would like to thank our DAD and let him know just how much we all appreciate everything he did for our mom, for all of the love and care he gave her for many, many year. She was very blessed to have him as her life partner. We would also like to thank the staff in the ICU at Dixie Regional for the sweet care they provided for a short time.
“ She is now dancing, running and flying with the angels.”

Marla Grace Mulholland Powers
What a glorious reunion with her sweetheart James (Jim) Powers, her family and friend’s took place with her passing on April 23, 2016. Marla was the youngest child of Ted and Grace Mulholland, born June 29, 1944 in Tacoma, Washington. She loved her brothers and sister very much and enjoyed going on adventures with them. This love of family and desire for close bonds with each other transferred over into Marla’s love and bonds with her own children.
Marla, from a young age, was an example of faith. She taught her own primary class at age 5 when there was no teacher to be found. Marla loved the gospel of Jesus Christ and held many callings over the years in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved teaching the gospel the most but thoroughly enjoyed being a girl’s camp cook for 3 years in the Tacoma stake. Marla was also a great example of personal strength. As a new bride she sent her sweetheart, Jim, off to Vietnam. Marla kept up a positive attitude and did not complain about Jim’s military tours, many of which were far from her family and in foreign lands. She taught us children to look at each move as a new, fun adventure, even though she was very much a home body. Marla was known to say that she had had an amazing life that was filled with world travels and adventures.
Marla is preceded in her next adventure by: her parents, siblings and eternal sweetheart, James (Jim) Dean Powers. Marla is survived by their children: James (Jim) Powers (Marianne); John Powers (June); Sarah Ann Powers; Michael Powers (Anjela); and their beloved eight grandchildren.
