Camille Matthews Sagers

1922-2014
Camille Matthews Sagers, our dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully at her home in Grantsville, Utah on August 21, 2014, one day before her 92nd birthday. What an incredible birthday it must have been as she enjoyed that long-awaited reunion with her sweetheart. Camille was born August 22, 1922 in Grantsville, Utah, to Parley Pratt and Mamie Clark Matthews, the fifth of eight children. She grew up in Grantsville and graduated from Grantsville High School, spending much of her youth helping her dad on his dairy farm. She studied home economics at Utah State University for two years until the war broke out, at which time, she moved home and found a job working at Wendover Air Force Base. In 1945, she met the love of her life, Gerald Sagers. They were married December 5, 1945 in the Salt Lake Temple. Soon after their marriage, they made their home in St. John (Rush Valley), Utah where Gerald worked at Dugway Proving Ground as well as managed the family farm. Camille spent countless hours helping him around the farm. Camille was a faithful member of the LDS Church, serving in Primary and Relief Society, particularly with the music. She also served on Stake Sunday School and Primary boards. She loved working with the youth and was involved in and directed many roadshows. Perhaps her greatest church calling was that of a devoted and supportive bishop’s wife for seventeen years, taking care of her small children, helping to raise money and build a new church in St. John, feeding the missionaries, doing their laundry, and unselfishly serving those around her. She was a talented seamstress, a wonderful cook and a beautiful cake decorator. Her family was her greatest joy, constantly expressing how proud she was of them, how much she loved them, and thanking them for their continual care these last few years. Camille is survived by one sister, Helen Willardson, Richfield, Utah; five children, Lynn (Kay), Logan, Utah; Kent (Sue), Vernon, Utah; Carla (Philip) Chamberlain, Grantsville; Hal (Cheri), Grantsville; Paula (Rick) Didericksen, Lindon, Utah; 16 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, one sister and five brothers. Funeral services will be held Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 12:00 noon at the LDS Chapel, 550 East Durfee St., Grantsville, Utah. Viewings will be held at the same location on Friday, August 29 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and Saturday morning from 10:00-11:30. Special thanks to the many aides who lovingly assisted her each morning the past two years, allowing her family to care for her so she could remain at home.

Dillon Delbert Taylor

Dillon Taylor was taken from this world way too soon, on August 11th, 2014 from a tragic unnecessary act. He was born on November 18th, 1993 to Franklin and Yvonne Taylor in Salt Lake City, Ut. Dillon had a laugh that was infectious and a smile that could literally light up a room. He was always joking around and could pick you up on your lowest of days. Everybody that knew him could vouch for the fact that he was one of a kind. He had been through a lot in his too short of a life, but he still held his head high and helped others to see the good in things. He loved children. His niece and nephew’s , loved when he was around because he was never too tired or too busy to play. Dillon is preceded in death by his father Franklin Scott Taylor and his mother Yvonne Martina Ulibarri, (aka Marty). His Grandmother Gussie Thayne. He is survived by his brothers, Cody (Kate) Taylor and Jerrail (Jaeleene) taylor, his sister, Teesha Taylor, his nieces and nephews, Peyton, Issaak, Mack, Keston and Zoey, many aunts, uncles and cousins, and an unbelievable amount of friends, or “homies” as he would call them.
