She was actively engaged in her church, where she served in many leadership positions throughout her life. She also was a leader in the many civic organizations that she belonged to. She and Dwayne served together in the St. George Temple for many years and loved the people that they worked with and serving God.

She is survived by her children, Terry Sullivan (Claire), Jill Beardall (Dan), Beth Ann Dockstader, all of Hurricane, and Patti Nackos (Kelly) of Draper, Utah; 15 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren; and one sister, Flora Bardwell.
