Aleith Anderson Bagley, 88, passed away Oct. 1, 2012, at her home in Orem, surrounded by loved ones.
She was born Dec. 1, 1923, in Annabella, to Lecoy and Vaunda Nordfors Anderson.
She married Lowell E. Bagley Feb. 9, 1946, in Richfield, and their marriage was later solemnized in the Manti LDS temple.
Together they had six children including John (Phyllis) Bagley, Koosharem; Anne (Michael) Morrey, Orem; Renee (Karl) Thomas, Provo; Mignon (Kent) Nicol; Marian Castleberry; and Lisa Elaine Bagley, all Orem. She also has 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
Aleith is also survived by her sisters, Yvonne (George) Leigh, Tucson; Karen (Don) Cornelius, Reston, Va.; and several beloved nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband; parents; sister, Joyce (John) Hood; and brother, Shirl Anderson.
Aleith loved to learn and was an excellent student. She was a creative and meticulous homemaker, seamstress and cook. She had great faith in her heavenly father and was an example of hard work, dependability and desire to do her very best in any endeavor. Her family is honored to call this elegant lady “Mother” and “Grandmother.” We look forward to being with her again.
There will be a visitation Sunday evening, Oct. 7, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Suncrest LDS 5th ward building, 130 North 400 West in Orem. Funeral services will be held at the same location Monday, Oct. 8, at noon, with a visitation prior to the service from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
The family would like to express heartfelt appreciation for the loving care provided by Karen, Angela, and Sharelle and for the professional and tender care from Encompass Hospice.
