Mom loved listening to music, singing to her grandbabies, and trips to Wendover with our dad. She was a great friend, always ready to listen, give advice and laugh. She also had a great sense of humor. Mom was a spiritual person and loved her family very much.
Mom is survived by her children: LeAnn (Paul) Warden, and Crystal (Jose) Monreal. Grandchildren: David, Lawrence, Joseph, Jesse, Lucas, Emilio, and Aleyah. Daughter-in-Law Josie; sister Virginia Gallegos; brother, Leroy Gallegos; and Sister-in-Laws: Gloria Duran and Genee Gallegos.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband George, and beloved son David, brothers: Tom, Sam, Toby, and sisters: Belle & Gloria.
The family would like to express a special thank you to Dr. Frame at Utah Cancer Specialists for his compassion and care for our mom.
