Ta, hastened the work of the Lord by being the ‘Missionary’ at the Life Care Center in Bountiful. She would always take time out to share and spread the gospel through her powerful testimony with whomever was willing to listen. Ta, was a loyal and true friend and was loved by all who came to know her, often referred to being ‘lovely and lively’ at the LCCB. Ta, loved her family unconditionally and had the great privilege to live and be raised by many people in her family and touch their lives. Though Ta never had children of her own she loved to brag about her nieces and nephews. Ta was a very independent person, but never strayed too far from her father, often reminding everyone that she was dads ‘Pele’.
