DEATH: RITA ANNETTE FREDRICKSON SWEAT

Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend, Annette, battled valiantly against back, gallbladder, bowel and cancer surgeries. She was hospitalized 18 times in the last 22 months. Between each time she would not quit, going, to Hawaii, the northwest coast, riding her horse, camping, going on a buffalo roundup, and continuing to perform her church duties to the end.

She spent the last 65 days in the Jordan Valley Holy Cross Hospital. Her family and friends greatly appreciate the extraordinary service, love and compassion rendered by the hospital staff, nurses, cooks, maintenance, technicians, and administration, plus her doctor and his staff.Annette loved horses, other animals, and outdoor life. She went on hundreds of horse outings, motor trips, and camping trips, with her family. Many of these included special friends. It was routine, five days of the week, for Annette and her friend, Celeste, to saddle up their horses and ride out from her house. Estimations are they road their horses over 20,000 miles through the neighborhood and nearby foothills.

Annette loved her father and mother, Clarence and Rita Albert Fredrickson. They gave her a strong religious foundation. She was an active worker in many capacities, from Cub Scouts to Relief Society. She passed this strong foundation on to her children.

She is survived by husband, Joseph Sweat of 30 years on August 17, 1992; daughter, Mrs. Bob (Bonnie Jo) Lefler; grandchildren, Lacey and Jamie Lefler; son, Melvin Joseph and wife Cori; son, David Jode and wife Shari; grandson, Tyrell Sweat; and brother, Ronald Fredrickson and wife, Norma.

She was a special friend to many people.
