Born in Salt Lake City on Dec. 30, 1912, to James Robert and Mabel Alexander Price, the eldest of five children.

She was educ-ated in Phoenix, AZ and at the University of Utah where she met and married Sharp Woodruff Daynes on Dec. 30, 1931. They have been married 69 years.

She is the mother of four children, 19 grandchildren, 38 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. She is remembered as a wife, a mother, a teacher, a leader, a friend and one who devoted her life to serving others. She had many talents and taught scores of people in the skills she mastered in music, cosmetology, sewing, oil painting, and ceramics. She left a legacy of art in hundreds of homes of family and friends.

Friends were an extended part of her family. Study groups, sewing and musical circles, book, art and religious study groups in her home were a part of her life as she continued her pursuit of beautiful things. Her service in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was life-long as a teacher and leader in all auxiliary organizations. Relief Society was "home" to her, having served in most of the callings in that organization including Stake Relief Society president in the Monument Park Stake. She served as a missionary with her husband at the Joseph Smith Memorial in Sharon, Vermont. She and her husband spent many years as temple workers and in the extraction program.
