Erma Faye Eliason Stoddard

Jan 17, 2022

Erma Faye Eliason Stoddard was born September 20, 1927 to goodly parents Andrew Leroy and Erma Alice Christensen Ellason in Logan Utah. She attended schools in Logan including Logan High. She was a proud Grizzly.

Her first job was a cashier at the Gem Theater. She met dad on a double date – her date and dad’s date rode the roller coaster and got sick. He swapped his date for mom and the rest is history. Faye and Eldon W. Stoddard were married in her mother’s living room June 26, 1948. Their first home was in Roy, Utah when Eldon started his career at Hill AFB. Several more moves until they settled in their forever home in Layton. We had the best 4th of July celebrations and the best Christmas Celebration.

Mom had several careers in cashiering and finally retired at age 66. Mom and dad bought a motorhome and traveled around the country as health permitted. They then moteled it.

After dad passed her health began to decline. In 2017 she became a resident at Fairfield Village.

She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a member pf the Daughter of Utah Pioneers, she was a member of the Central Ward and the Fairfield Branch.

She was preceded in death by her husband Eldon, daughter Nyla Jean, Son Eldon W II., her parent’s sister Alice Jean Hubenthal, brother Val Eliason, half brother Ivan Eliason, grandson Brett Stoddard. Survived by daughter Karen Gee (late Ernie) Lori (Pat) Patterson, Keith (Julie) Stoddard, nine grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews, and her special friend Sherol Haycock.

We would like to thank her hospice nurse Autumn McKell, the wonderful staff, Bernie, Jenny and Kaylee who cared for mom.
