Hallie Young Tibbitts passed away peacefully in her sleep on September 6, 2018.

Hallie was born August 13, 1925 to M.H. Young and Ina M. Helquist in Blanding, Utah. She was the second of six children. In 1938 M.H. and Ina bought the South Mesa Ranch in the La Sal Mountains. In 1940 her family moved to Moab, UT which is where Hallie lived out the vast majority of her 93 years of life.

She married her High School sweetheart Robert Tibbitts on February 19, 1944 in Fort Smith, Arkansas before he was deployed in WWII. She travelled from Montana to Arkansas on a bus to marry him and in the winter of 1944 that was no easy feat. She stayed with him in Arkansas until he deployed and then she returned to Moab. They were married for 73 years,born of this union were five children; Robert (Lynn) Tibbitts, Stephen aka Cap (Diane) Tibbitts, Nancy (Wayne) Inskeep, Susan (Mike) Swasey and Jennifer (Rholand) Murphy.

Hallie was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Robert, her sister Mildred as well as her brothers Max and Kay. She was also preceded in death by her son-in-law Mike Swasey, her daughter-in-law Lynn Tibbitts; grandson, Carson Swasey; and great-grand-daughter’s, Zoey Swasey and Haven McCandless.

Hallie is survived by her 5 children, sister Inalynn Meador and her brother Curt Young in addition to a very large and loving family of 19 grandchildren, 49 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great-grandchildren.

One of her greatest joys was her family and she watched it grow with pride. She made a monumental impact on every life that she touched with her unconditional love, knowledge and strength. She passed on her strong family values, and was proud member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She will be dearly missed by all but she will live on in the hearts of her friends and family.

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.
