She was preceded in death by her husband Keith, Parents Lowell and Anita Varley and her sister Colleen Judd. Mom was a great seamstress. She sewed all of our clothes when we were younger sometimes altering “hand-me-down” clothes in order to fit us. She was also a great cook making the best pies and pastries, especially her cherry pies, cinnamon rolls, candies, and chocolate cakes. She has made some of the most beautiful quilts and counted cross stitch pictures. She also loved making porcelain dolls and ceramics. Mom served in many church callings most notably pianist and organist. She served several years as an organist in the Mount Timpanogos Temple. The family wishes to express our sincere thanks to A Plus Hospice Care and a special thanks to her daughter Jeannette and son-in-law Steven Hall for their loving care in the most difficult of times.
