Leah Peacock Pendleton Obituary
Leah Peacock Pendleton
1927 ~ 2013
Leah Peacock Pendleton passed away on February 13, 2013 in SLC, Utah. Leah was born in Orangeville, Utah on March 30, 1927 to Maggie Lenore Jensen and Ralph Crawford Peacock. Raised on a farm during the Depression, she learned to work hard and appreciate all she was given from a young age. She finished high school at South Emery High School, moving to St. George to work for the Federal Government. There she met her husband, Anthony L. Pendleton and they married June 24, 1948 in the Manti Temple. They were truly devoted to each other for over 60 years. Together they raised their four daughters and adored their 17 grandchildren. At Leah's passing, she was so proud of their 25 great-grandchildren and took a special interest in each one of her family. Her quiet, gentle manner endeared many to her. Her mind was always active, she loved reading, and made her home a place of refuge. She blessed many with gifts from her kitchen and kept a detailed journal, writing in it every day. Expressing gratitude and living with frugality were two of her many strengths. She was an active member of the LDS Church, and her unselfish service and good works are evidence of her strong testimony. Her service in the Jordan River Temple, and her participation in the Daughters of Utah Pioneers (Mingo Camp) enhanced her later years. She and Tony believed strongly in missionary work, and helped support their grandsons on their missions. She and her family were so thankful for the wonderful care she received during her illness from Dr. Robert Hunter and Care Source Hospice. Survived by her four daughters; Karen (Brent) Green, Marie Brunyer, Anne Petersen, and Nadine Anglesey, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, brother George Clyde Peacock, & sister Nelda Wilson. Preceded in death by her parents, husband, brothers Vernon & LaVar, sons-in-law - Richard Brunyer, Jay Petersen, and David Anglesey, and grandson Elijah Bryan Davis.
