To the best Mom ever, you will be missed so very very much. I love you and thank you for the good example you have always been for our family.
Ione was a special lady and a blessing to her family. She touched my life and I thought so highly of her. My prayers are with her family.

Love you grandma – you were the best grandma ever. I have so many precious memories of the time I spent with you, I will never forget them. See you in a while……..
I will miss you very much Aunt Ione. You have been like a second mom to me. You have always supported me and my children in everything we do. My daughter DeeAnn has always said she wanted to be the “Aunt Ione” for our family.
Ione was one of the kindest people I’ve ever known in my life. While living in Cedar City in 1976, she shared a motherly love with me and my first child during a lonely time. I still have recipe cards in my box with her handwriting, which I will treasure. “Thank you Ione for the kindness which both you and George gave so freely – you are always in my heart.”
