OGDEN - Gloria Dean Hall Crimin, 83, left this earthly experience with joy and rejoicing into the presence of our Father in Heaven and the anxiously awaiting arms of her beloved Sweetheart. Though she left so many that love, adore and will always treasure her, her life on earth was centered in her love for others. Her greatest joy was found in family, friends, serving others and surrounding herself with music, the arts and all things lovely, of good report and praiseworthy.

Gloria was born January 13, 1934, the oldest child of David Nuttall and Gladys Steffenhagen Hall in Logan, Utah. She grew up in Sunnyside, Washington where she collected many friends and enjoyed associations throughout the Yakima Valley. Gloria participated in several beauty pageants, even reigning as Miss Sunnyside and Queen for a Day, as well as singing with the Singing Mothers Choir that performed at the Tabernacle at Temple Square. She attended BYU where she enjoyed singing with the choirs and participating with the program bureau.

On July 1, 1954, Gloria married her eternal sweetheart, Duane Crimin, in the Logan Temple. Their union brought to their family the six luckiest kids on the planet. They raised their family in several states throughout the west, finally setting their roots in Ogden where they made their home for 45 years. Upon his proposal, Duane evidently promised her the world. He made good on that promise as they traveled to every continent, visiting several countries and counting each of the Wonders of the World along the way. She especially enjoyed their annual family reunion at Lake Powell. Her family was the cornerstone of her joy.

Gloria loved baking for her family and spoiling her neighbors; apple pies being among her delectable specialties. She loved music, the symphony and shared her love of theatrical productions with anyone that would join her. One of her greatest joys was dancing - square, round, ballroom and clogging. She and her eternal dance partner, Duane, enjoyed regular dance engagements with the Keyes Round Dancing and the Quarter Promenaders. She also loved her time dancing with The Golden Tappers and the friendships she had there.

As a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, Gloria was in the Sego Lily Camp. As such, she was eternally grateful for her pioneer heritage and her membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her testimony and her love of the gospel of Jesus Christ was a vital moving force in all that she did. Gloria's years of church service impacted so many as she cherished the times she spent serving with the sisters of the wards wherever they lived. She particularly loved her service as Relief Society President in her home ward in Ogden and in Port Hedland, Australia. When their children had grown, Gloria served alongside her husband in the Australia Perth Mission, the Salt Lake Temple Square Mission, and missions in the Ogden Inner City and the Canyon View Stake. She served, loved and encouraged goodness in the lives of countless friends through cards, letters and visits along her path of influence.

Gloria is survived by her six doting and adoring children, Pamela (Dwayne) Watson of Fairview, David (Rochelle) Crimin of Richfield/Ivins, Maureen (Tim) Einfeldt of Cedar City, Julie (Chris) Davies of Las Vegas, Bryan (Tracy) Crimin of Kaysville, and Derek (Rochelle) Crimin of Clinton. She is also survived by 36 grandchildren (and 15 spouses), and 64 great-grandchildren (with 4 on the way), who love, honor, and adore her. She is also survived by her sister, Maradon (Cal) Anderson, and her brother, DeeVon (Carol) Hall. She was preceded in death by her eternal companion, Duane, her parents, her brothers, Jay and Larry, granddaughter, Megan and two precious great-grandsons, DJ and Ryker.

The family wishes to thank Leslie, Jeff, Sherry, Dr. Mansfield and the wonderful staff of A Step Forward Home Health and Hospice for their kind and compassionate care.
