VeYonne enjoyed immensely spending time at their cabin in Midway and condo in St. George. They enjoyed playing golf and camping with family.
She looked forward to hosting Relief Society retreats at the cabin for many years where many attendees laughed out loud and many lasting memories were made.
Mom was an avid reader and loved to play games with her family. She loved to crochet, knit and other handcrafts. She enjoyed family history and doing temple work.
She loved anything chocolate, root beer and most any ice-cream.
She will be missed by her family, friends and neighbors.
Mom didn’t walk in Dad’s shadow, she walked beside him as his best friend and helpmeet.
We want to thank the employees of the Beehive Home and the Canyon Hospice who took loving care of mom during her short stay.
