Our beloved Mother and Grandmother Kay Dean Arnold Morgan, age 85, passed from this place to continue on her journey for joy and peace on Monday, February 17, 2020, due to secondary complications and decline after a stroke. She had a beautiful last Christmas with a number of her family and all of her children visiting her, bringing her so much joy as her family was her greatest gift.
She was the first child born to John Kimball Arnold and Mary LaRue Dean Arnold on May 26, 1934 in Wilson, Uintah County, Utah – a true present to her father on his birthday!
Over her life, she dedicated much of her time to mothering and raising four children, bowling several times a week and working for years in banking, finance and customer service. In recent years, she filled her time with reading avidly, doing crossword puzzles and crocheting many scarves and hats, which she happily donated to friends and the children at St Jude’s Hospital.
She is lovingly remembered by her children and families, Russ (Connie, McKay & Kylie), Kaylyn (Jenna, Francisco, Julian & Angel & Bryzen Leifeste), Jay (Jaren) & Dale (Star, Jordan, Skyler, Michon, A’lias & Kleric and sister Judith Arnold Rushton (James), as well as many other Arnold and Morgan relatives.
Preceded in death by parents, grandson, Hayden Wariner Morgan, brother, David Lee Arnold and sister, Rosemary Arnold Mortensen.
She will be lovingly remembered by many who have felt the kindness of her beautiful heart, friendly nature and enjoyment in saying hi to so many people she encountered regularly. She was passionate about gambling, traveling, cruises and made everywhere she went a better place. In our Morgan family tradition, she was a regular for Tuesday family lunches for over 36 years, and often extended that invitation to many others to join us.
In honor of our Mother, and in lieu of flowers, please take your family to lunch and enjoy every moment with them you can. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. at the Hullinger Mortuary, 457 East 300 North, Roosevelt, Utah. A viewing will begin at 11:00 a.m.
Family & Friends to join us for a Celebration of Life on February 29, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at 3621 W Thunder Rd, Riverton, from 2:00 - 6:00 p.m.
