Ruth Manning Mason

ROY - Ruth Manning Mason, loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 9, 2014 of conditions due to age.

She was born in Hooper, Utah on April 2, 1921 to George and Hannah Elizabeth Fowles Manning. She graduated from Weber High School. She later married Calvin Jefferson Mason, of Jones Louisiana, on June 19, 1942 in Hooper, where they lived and raised their family. They moved to Roy, Utah in 1969, where Ruth has lived for forty five years.

She worked at the American Packing Co., Defense Depot Ogden, and the Internal Revenue Service.

Her gift and talent was a life-long love of music. She was a pianist, accompanist, and played the organ beautifully. She taught piano lessons to many students, including her own children. She also enjoyed reading, gardening, and crocheting.

Her greatest joy was spending time with her family. She was a kind, sweet person who was loved by everyone who knew her.

Ruth was an active member of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, where she faithfully served in many callings, especially serving as the ward, stake, and Ogden Temple organist.

She is survived by daughters Bonnie Creer (Carl) of Bountiful, Utah; Cheryl Neves (Max) of South Jordan, Utah; Colleen Hazen (Blake) of Layton, Utah; twenty grandchildren, and sixty-one great grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her husband Calvin Mason, son Dennis Mason, parents, one brother and four sisters.

Funeral Services will be held Friday, March 14, 2014 at 11 am at the Roy 5th Ward Church, 5300 S. 2100 W. Friends may call at the Myers Mortuary of Roy, 5865 S. 1900 W. on Thursday from 6-8 pm, and at the church on Friday from 9:45-10:45 am prior to services.
