- After Care
Beth peacefully passed away at her home in Cedar Hills, Utah on Tuesday, January 15, 2018. She was born on August 15, 1931 in Luna, New Mexico the daughter of William Henry and Charlotte Eager Reynolds. She was the second to the youngest of a hardy ranching family who lived in a 2 room cabin among the tall pines and wild flowers of west central New Mexico. That very rural area was slow to receive such conveniences as electricity and indoor plumbing, yet she enjoyed her childhood and had a lifelong love for Luna. After graduating from high school she attended New Mexico A & M in Las Cruces, New Mexico. She also worked as a telephone operator, a job she really enjoyed. It was there that she met her future husband and love of her life, Roger Cluff. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on August 18, 1955 after Roger received his degree. They both worked at White Sands Missile Range for a time until Beth quit her job as a typist and became a full time mom. Three girls and one boy children were born to them while they lived in Las Cruces. After spending the first 15 years of their married life in Las Cruces they packed up the family and moved to Royal City, Washington where the whole family learned the ups and downs of farm life. While living there Beth was hired to be the town librarian, a job she truly loved. In 1987 they moved back to Las Cruces and enjoyed the warm weather until retirement when she and Roger were called to serve and LDS mission at the genealogy library at Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Upon completion of their mission they went back to Las Cruces. In 2011 they once again moved back to Utah to be closer to family. Beth made special and lasting friendships in each of the places she lived.
Beth loved her family and they were always at the center of her life. She also had a great love for books and spent many happy hours either reading or listening to books on tape. She was especially fond of mysteries. She particularly enjoyed doing crafts and made special hand-crafted Christmas ornaments to give to friends and family. Besides her time as a missionary she also served in the Primary, Relief Society, and Young Womens organizations.
She is survived by daughters Carol (Kelvin) Hulet; Lisa Davis; son, Roger (Heidi) Cluff Jr. as well by 16 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren who will all miss her sweet personality and gentle humor. She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Max, Lamar, David, Ralph and Merle; daughter Jeannie, and son-in-law Jeff (Lisa) Davis.
Funeral services will be held in her memory on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. in the Manila Third Ward Chapel, 3396 North 900 West, Pleasant Grove with a viewing from 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. prior to the services.
