June 9, 1916 - April 25, 2010
Resided in Ogden, UT
OGDEN - June L. Moulton, 93, died April 25, 2010 after a full life. She was born June 9, 1916 at her parents homestead within, what is today, Teton National Park. Her father would always remember that 6 inches of snow fell the day she was born. In this beautiful but harsh valley, she was fortunate to grow within a loving family and caring community.
She married Delmar Moulton on Oct 8, 1938 in Driggs, Idaho. Four years later they, and three daughters, were sealed in the Logan LDS Temple. In 1945 they moved to Utah in search of employment. They found it, and by 1948 they were living, with their growing family, in the house in Ogden where they would spend the next 55 years together.
June served others throughout her life, primarily through her many callings with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Later in life, with Delmar, June served a mission on the South Pacific island of Palau. Upon their return they began a 15 year assignment at the LDS Ogden Temple until their release in 1999. Five of their children, and eight of their grandchildren, also served full time missions.
But no calling was more important, or natural, to June than "mother". Though they lost two daughters at infancy, she and Delmar would raise nine children to adulthood. With infallible love, she applied an intuitive blend of discipline, quiet praise and encouragement, and expectations of integrity and personal responsibility.
June is survived by her children Carol (Sherman) Rawlings, Myrna Moulton, Coleen (Alan) Martindale, Lauana (Delton) Killman, Ardel (Michael) Olsen, Debra (Bruce) Forsyth, John (Val) Moulton, Margo Griffiths, and Mark (Janice) Moulton, and by her sister Helen Wise of Ogden. At her death, her family includes 20 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Delmar; her sisters, Rhoda and Melba; brothers Clark and Harley, two infant daughters, Janet and Linda; and her son-in-law Patrick Griffiths.
Her friends admired her for her pleasant temperament, willing manner, and compassionate example. With her children grown she found her "dream job" behind the counter of a fabric shop helping others with their endeavors. With her own creative spirit, from youth to old age, she found expression through such means as her sewing machine, flower garden, quilt frames, and paint brush. Her eyes and hands were never at rest. With her husband of 65 years at her side, each spring they awaited new color in her flower garden. ï¿½and it's spring again.
In lieu of flowers, please plant some.
Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday the 30th of April 2010, at Myers Mortuary, 845 Washington Blvd. in Ogden, Utah. Friends may call on Thursday, April 29th from 6:00-8:00 p.m., and Friday from 10:00-10:45 a.m. Interment at the Victor Idaho Cemetery on May 1st 2010 at 11:00 a.m.
The family would like to thank Emeritus Estates for their care of June the past year. Also, Hospice of Utah, especially Debbie and Andrea, for their loving care.
