Gay Ann Larsen Stone, of Brigham City, passed away on Saturday, August 3, 2013.
Mom loved spending time with her family more than anything in life. Gay Ann was born on March 8, 1941 in Brigham City, UT to Ellen Hull Larsen and H. Scott Larsen. She grew up milking cows, hauling hay, and learning to be an amazing cook and homemaker. Mom married her sweetheart, John Merrill Stone, June 3, 1960. They were sealed in the Logan Temple on December 14, 1963.
For 17 years Mom and Dad enjoyed living in the mountains east of Huntsville. It was a magical place to enjoy the outdoors. Mom loved watching and feeding birds. She could forecast the weather by observing the signs of nature. She always kept a neat and orderly home and a weed-free yard. She enjoyed wintering in Yuma and St. George until Dad's passing in 2002. She greatly missed our father and we knew their reunion was something to see.
Mom was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many callings with her favorite being an Ogden Temple worker for seven years until they closed for remodeling. Her grandchildren meant as much to her as her kids. She loved, supported, and worried about each one of us.
She is survived by her children: Merilee (David) Green, Scott (Lisa) Stone, and Stephanie (Eric) Lewis; her grandchildren: Kymberlee Green Dirkmaat, Nicole Green Kelly, Amber Stone, Sierra Lewis, Chance Lewis, Aspen Lewis, Alissa Stone, (Megan Sue); her great-grandchild: McCabe Kelly; her sister June (Rodger) Hoffman, and her brother, Scott (Julie) Larsen.
Preceded in death by her husband, both of her parents, and a brother-in-law, Bill Cummiskey. May God be with US til we meet again, Mom. We miss you already!
