Our beautiful and loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend, Lee Collings Persson passed away surrounded by her family on Friday, July 2nd, 2021.
She was born on September 3rd, 1950 in Provo, Utah. She was the 8th of 9 children born to Ferron and Eva Collings.
Mom loved her family and friends, cooking, reading, gardening, fishing, and chickens. She loved to teach her children and grandchildren. Mom loved to spend time with her sisters and friends. Their many adventures would often include going to "lunch" with a packed weekend bag in tow.
Mom loved family parties and holidays. We love to spend time together and thank mom for teaching us to always try to "be the better person." We are most grateful that our mother taught us that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and that our
family can be together forever!
Mom was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Gerald, and Dennis, and her sister, Lyn. She is survived by her children, Lisa (Paul), Shawna (Derrick), Paul, Brett, Joel (Jamie), Lana (Patrick), Ryan (Natalie), Michael (Erica); 35 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank Holly with Centre Health, Syd with Yarrow Hospice, and the nurses at American Fork IV Therapy for their nurturing care of our mother.
Private family services and a celebration of mom's life will be held.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating blood in her name.
