DEATH: MARY ISABELLE FLEMING

Mary Isabelle Williams Fleming, 72, died at the McKay Dee Hospital, Saturday, April 8, 1995, of a heart attack.

She was born September 4, 1922 in Ogden, Utah, the third daughter of Isabelle Henderson and Albert Williams. She was a graduate of Ogden High School and attended Weber College. She was a talented musician and vocal soloist. Music was always an important part of her life.She was married and later divorced. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

She was employed at IRS for a short time and then transferred to Defense Depot Ogden. She was a member of the American Business Women's Association. In 1987, after 28 years of federal service, she retired as Chief of Freight Data Section in the Transportation Division. She received a Distinguished Career Award. Then she devoted her entire energy to her family. She loved traveling and being involved in the activities of her family. Mom had many friends and interests. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, and house plants, watching Jazz games, family gatherings, helping at volkswalks, shopping for everyone and eating out. Holidays were her favorite time of year. She was interested in everybody and took pride in their accomplishments and shared their pain when things didn't work out. She was our biggest fan and our lifelong friend. Yet she was a private person, too, enjoying her home and solitude, and her cat, Smoky. By example, she taught us the meaning of true love and lived life to its fullest. Her love was unconditional.

Our beautiful Mom is survived by three daughters, two sons and their spouses, Myra and Ken Tams, Pleasant View; Nancy and Russ Hill, Hooper; Susan and Ken Knighton, Roy; Rich and Pat Fleming and Kent (Sam) and Carolyn Fleming, all of North Ogden; a sister, Dorothy (Tom) Martindale, Idaho Falls; and nieces and nephews. She was a special grandmother to 15 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, a sister and a brother-in-law and a nephew, Edna, Henry and Kim Ketchie.

We are grateful to her doctors who tried so diligently to make her last years comfortable and especially for those attending her when she slipped the bonds of this earth. We love you, Mom.
