After years of persistent ailments, she passed away January 29, 2022 at home in West Jordan, Utah while lovingly and peacefully surrounded by her family.

There she started her family having four children who were her love and world. She provided her children with the best upbringing. She raised them with love, affection, education and consistency while she also worked many jobs with newspapers, community action, political action and eventually an insurance agent. She exemplified great strength and grace in every phase of her life. She possessed a remarkably kind and generous spirit and embodied a wonderfully compassionate, charitable and positive approach to life. She hosted neighbors for socials, including her sister Nancy Shelton and best friend Gay Mills, who all lived just houses away. After her children were raised and out of the nest, she found herself starting over meeting the love of her life Art Canney. With him she embarked on love of family, friends, socializing and travel. She found love for life in the warmth of southern Arizona, enjoying the ability to have the best of all worlds with children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and worked at her own pace to travel with the man she loved for many years.
