Our dear mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Beverley Midgley Truitt passed away 6 December 2001 in LDS Hospital after a short illness.

She was born 16 July 1919 in Salt Lake City, Utah the 10th of 13 children born to Leroy Park and Lucy Edith Thurgood Midgley. She married Thomas Ghnon Truitt for time and eternity in the Salt Lake Temple on 18 September 1952. Beverley was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served faithfully in many church callings. Beverley had a strong testimony of Jesus Christ, which was evidenced by her unselfish life of service.

Beverley always had a cheerful word and smile for everyone. She had a kind heart and helped many in need. Her whole life was devoted to her family and friends. She loved beautiful flowers, working in her garden, walking, singing in her ward choir, and receiving post cards and letters.

She served in the Women's Army Corps during World War II and worked at Mountain Bell Telephone Company in Salt Lake City for many years. Beverley held membership in the U.S. Mormon Battalion Auxiliary and the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers where she was captain of the LeGrand Camp.

She is preceded in death by her parents, five brothers and six sisters, husband, infant daughter Bonnie Jean and infant grandson James Karl McDaniel.

She is survived by son Thomas G. Truitt, Jr. and his wife Fay of Manti, Utah; daughter Sara Beth Truitt McDaniel and her husband Alvin of Idaho Falls, Idaho; Lucy Ann Truitt of Salt Lake City; Esther Ruth Truitt Henrichsen and her husband Kirk of Salt Lake City; Reed James Truitt of Salt Lake City.

She is also survived by 11 grandchildren: Antoinette, Jeremy, Lindsey, Amy, Tracie, Emily, Shawn, Paul, Jeff, Steven, India, and three great-grand-children, all of whom she loved very dearly.

The family expresses gratitude to her many devoted friends, LDS Hospital doctors and nurses (especially Dr. Heather Gilbert) who showed compassion toward Beverley during her last few days.
