April 18, 1928 - January 21, 2018
Emma Lucille Cameron Whiting, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend passed away January 21, 2018 surrounded by family. Lucille was born in Tooele, Utah April 18, 1928 to D. Eccles and Nellie Cameron. She was the oldest of 5 children. She graduated from Provo High School in 1946. She lunched every month with her high school friends until the time of her death. It was in High School that she met her sweetheart Johnny who nicknamed her "Effie.” She married Johnny in the Salt Lake Temple in 1947, and had 5 children. Her greatest calling in life was to support John in any capacity needed and she loved it. Their adventure took them from Salt Lake City to Palm Springs and back again. In 1964 John found Lake Powell and that began a lifelong affair with Lake Powell. Their trips were legendary and have provided their family with a lifetime of amazing memories. Effie's second greatest love was her service in the LDS church, serving as a young women's leader and in the Relief Society. She left her mark on the many women she served with. She also loved her time as a hostess at the Beehive House. Our Christmases will never be the same without her reading "T’was the Night before Christmas". We loved the sound of her voice. She is survived by her children Randy (Scott), Sue Ann (Tom) Akers, Dorothy (daughter-in-law), Teresa (Scott) Halliday, Jeff (Jana); 9 grandchildren, 10 Great-grandchildren; and her sister Gainell Rogers and brother Stan Cameron. She is preceded in death by her beloved John, son Robert, parents and sisters Dora Jean Drennan and Sondra James. We would like to thank the staff at Cottonwood Creek and Brighton Hospice for their tender, loving, and professional care of Mom. Funeral services will be held at 1:45 p.m., Saturday, January 27, 2018 at the Berg Drawing Room Chapel, 185 East Center Street, Provo, Utah. Friends may call from 1-1:30 p.m. prior to services. Interment, Provo City Cemetery. Condolences may be expressed at www.bergmortuary.com.
