Mom decided to spend Christmas with dad this year, so she left us unexpectedly on Christmas Eve. She was born in Bingham Canyon to Cyril “Red” Robinson and Mern Yates.
She married Eddie Mann on June 24, 1948. They bought their home in Kearns next to the Fire Station. They became very good friends with all the firemen there and she would make cookies for them. She said they would always watch out for her. Some of their best friends were firemen. They would go on vacation with them and spent their retirement with them and many other friends in Arizona.
Mom was very creative, she painted, did ceramics and crocheted many beautiful things. She was one of those special people that made friends with everyone. People loved her and told us often what a joy she was to be around.
She is survived by her children James Mann, Christine Lamph (Randy Nyhart), Linda Bizek (Michael), Jill Kemple and Heith Mann; sisters Colleen Bailey (Bob), Alaine Merz (Oscar), Jean Thompson (Jerry); 11 grandchilden and 14 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by the love of her life, husband Eddie; her parents; sister LaDean Miller; and granddaughter Charlene Mann.
We will have a celebration of life at a later time when we can gather, hug, laugh and share memories.
Thanks to Bristol for all their help, care and love they gave to mom.
