Delma Ruth Stone Gailey

January 9, 1928 ~ September 5, 2022

 

Delma Ruth Stone Gailey joined her husband on Monday morning, September 5, 2022. Her mortal body will be missed by her 5 children, 25 grandchildren, and 69 great-grandchildren. She will also be missed by her brother, Harold Stone and many nieces and nephews.

 

She was born to Clarence Murry Stone and Florence Stratton on January 9, 1928 and lived nearly all of her life in Riverdale. She attended Riverdale schools, graduated from Weber High School, and attended Weber Academy (now Weber State University).

 

She married her sweetheart, Colen Thomas Gailey, on June 12, 1947. One year later, on June 11, 1948, their marriage was made eternal in the Salt Lake Temple. He has been waiting for her since his passing on August 5, 2015.

 

Delma is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and has loved and served others in many capacities in Relief Society and Primary. Delma enjoyed the years she was able to serve in the Ogden Temple. She has been a great friend, an amazing mother, and a good neighbor as she showed sincere concern for all. She belonged to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers, and also as active in the Over-the-Hill-Good Sam’s for many years.

 

She enjoyed sewing, quilting, reading, cooking, and gardening. Her greatest joy was raising and spending time with her family, LaRene (Duane) Rogers, Dale C. Gailey (Shelly Tippets and Lana Robinson – both deceased), Coleen (Neal) Fenton, Sandy (Randy) Butler, and Brian R. Gailey (Dianne Weaver).

 

Delma leaves a legacy of love and example, and her children arise up to call her blessed. They believe she was the best mom on earth and they are lucky and blessed to have had all of these years with her! And her children-in-law agree!
