She was born February 17, 1934 in Moab to Ken and Helen McDougall.

She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Utah State University after raising her four children. She was an avid reader, a tough ping pong competitor, champion of rummy, and always made her family laugh.

She also enjoyed spending time at the cabin that Papa built for her in the LASal Mountains. She was the most nurturing person we could ever know (unless you beat her at cards, which rarely happened, then you better watch out). She had many passions and knew what she wanted out of life.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
