(Arden) Sherrill of Green River, Utah; 15 grandchildren and 24 great-grand-children and one great-great-grandchild. She was preceded in death by her husband, son Joe, daughter-in-law Karen Atwood, sons-in-law Lawrence Anderson and Dennis Watkins and grandson Barry Jewkes, and brothers Elwood, Clair, Rex and Wallace.
