Sondra L. Rigby 1937 ~ 2005 On September 22, 2005 Sondra Lee Anderson Rigby passed away peacefully with family at her side after a five year battle with cancer. Sondra was born January 24, 1937 in Des Moines, Iowa. Living all of her youth in Pleasant Grove, Utah. After her marriage on October 12, 1956 in the Salt Lake Temple to Ken Dabell Rigby, resided in Vernon, Utah for the rest of her days. Sondra had three themes that were consistent in her life: church, family and home. She was well known for her bread and cinnamon rolls. She made soap and braided rugs. Made clothes and costumes for her children. She was an avid supporter of the scouting program and she became Mother Eagle to three Eagle Scouts. She loved the grandchildren, making cookies and doughnuts, going to plays, reading or just plain talking. To set an example in her later years, she and her husband went on a mission to Cape Town, South Africa; before leaving, she mentioned she had read the Book of Mormon 35 times. As of last year she had read it 57 times. She loved the gospel and the scriptures. She leaves behind a rich legacy of five children, 23 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, brother, sisters and in-laws. Not a day will go by that we won't think of her or be reminded of her.
