Death: Donald Merton Tooley

Our Eternal Father in Heaven we humbly pray, receive the spirit of Donald Merton Tooley who graduated from the school of life on Oct. 23, 1997 a rainy autumn day.

An honorable father, loving husband, and loyal friend who's gift of time has come to an end.In life he worked for the Union Pacific Rail Road for 35 years, at home in his free time, he worked on small engines replacing their gears. He loved to tell jokes that were clever and bright watching the listener face for the signs of delight.

He unselfishly took care of his handicapped daughter, and ailing wife without much complaint. An example of a human practice becoming a saint.

He leaves behind his wife, Gwenavere Tooley, Gordon Tooley (a son) daughters, Elizabeth Ann Johnson, Joyce Walton, Kay Lynn T. Wallace and Donna Tooley.

And now Heavenly Father he comes to you t claim the reward he has won. Amen.

Funeral services will be held at Hillside Ward, 495 East 5600 South at 12 noon on Tuesday, Oct. 28, 1997. Friends and family may call on Monday, Oct. 27, 1997, from 6-8 p.m. at Memorial Estates Mortuary, 5850 South 900 East, and one hour prior to services at the church.
