Maurine Anderson Widdison

WILLARD – Maurine Anderson Widdison passed away on Monday, March 30, 2009 surrounded by her family at McKay Dee Hospital.
Maurine was born on October 9, 1932 to Don Lyman and Thelma Lovell Anderson in Oak City, Utah minutes before her twin sister. She was raised in Oak City and graduated for Delta High School. Maurine played the piano and the saxophone in the High School band. She received a Scholarship and attended Dixie Jr. College. She then moved to Salt Lake City to work. She taught Sunday school for two years at the Primary Children’s Hospital and was the Ninth ward MIA President. Maurine has always been active in her church. She served an 18-month LDS Mission to the Eastern States (1956-57).
Maurine worked in Salt Lake City for eight years until she met Glenn L. Widdison during a dear hunting trip in Oak City. That year she boasts that she bagged the best kind of deer, the two-legged kind.
She and Glenn were married June 18, 1960, in the Manti LDS Temple. They are the parents of Marlin (Tena) Widdison, Tremonton; Jeanine (Renald) Holmes, Clinton; Lynette Widdison, Willard; and Lorin (Amy) Widdison, North Ogden.
Maurine served faithfully in several callings, including Relief Society Pianist, 35 years as Ward Organist, Primary President, Stake Missionary, Ogden Temple Organist and many teaching positions. Maurine loved her membership in the Daughters of Utah Pioneers and served for six years as Company President over the South Box Elder County which included 15 Camps.
Maurine loved teaching, good books, good music, and making life fun. Camping with family and friends was her favorite activity. She like a good joke and would leave you with, “Have you heard this joke. . . ?”
She was able to serve two six-month missions (1998-99) with her husband at Martin’s Cove the Mormon Handcart Visitors Center in Wyoming where she was able to live in her favorite home away from home, her fifth-wheeler.
She is survived by her loving husband, four children, 18 grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, one brother, Nephi (Lila) Anderson, St. George; and her twin sister, Coleen (Ken) Wikerson, Neola, UT.
She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother, Don Lyman Anderson and her sister, Levern Anderson.
My Loving Husband, I Love you. Thanks for the Joy and Love that you have given me throughout our married life.
