Ford, Lillian  
Lillian Frost Jones Ford St. George Lillian Frost Jones Ford returned home to her Heavenly Father on Sunday, Dec 14, 2014 at the age of 87. Lillian was born June 17, 1927 in Albion, Idaho. She was the second daughter of Ivan Leroy and Mary Ann Bortz Frost. On Dec. 31, 1942 she married Floyd Ray Jones in Burley, Idaho. Together they began building their future, first working in the potato industry; later, they brought a ranch in Tendoy, Idaho where they raised their 3 boys on hard work and effort. They made their home there until Floyd's health diminished which led them to St. George in 1959. They purchased a motel on the boulevard where Lillian remained after Floyd's death in 1960. She was sealed to her family for time and all eternity in 1961. Lillian remarried and had a fourth son in St. George. She was a hardworker and enjoyed many years working for Claron Bradshaw and then Jay Ence. Her big heart was apparent through her many years as the director of Dixie Care and Share. She constantly put others needs above her own and always had something for the grandkids, and neighbors, when they visited. Lillian is survived by four sons, Dallas (Jennifer Carlyle) Jones, Soldotna, Alaska; DeVon (Shirley Nelson) Jones, St. George; Billy Jones, Ivins; Tony Ford, St. George. She has 13 grandchildren, 37 great grandchildren, and nearly 2 great great grandchildren (one on the way). She is preceded in death by her husband, Floyd Jones; her parents and sister, Mary Smith; and a daughter-in-law Marilyn Holt. Many thanks to the caregivers at Kolob Care Center and to her kind, loving roommate, Lori. Mom and Grandma, you will be greatly missed but we know you are in a better place with the ones you love. Funeral services will be Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 2:00 pm at Spilsbury Mortuary, 110 S. Bluff, St. George, UT. Interment will take place in the St. George City Cemetery.

France, Michael  
Michael Hogan France Cedar City Michael Hogan France, 63, of Cedar City passed away peacefully on December 14, 2014 surrounded by his family and friends after a courageous fight with liver disease. He was born November 16, 1951 in Centerville, Utah to Richard and Leona France. As a kid, Michael was a natural thrill seeker and was always finding trouble with his older brother Richard. He married his high school sweetheart, Peggy Chapman Stults, and later divorced yet remained lifelong friends. Working at the France Service Garage in Centerville and manufacturing plants throughout Utah he was a natural mechanic and could fix virtually anything. He was an avid hunter and target shooter. Known for his energetic smile, easygoing attitude, handlebar mustache, and a gigantic heart, he was a great friend to anyone. He was also a fun storyteller. Every year his fish, deer, and adventures got bigger and better. Easy to love and hard to forget. He lived every minute of his life to its fullest. He will be sorely missed. He is survived by his children Melissa (Jed) Fuller, April (Merrill) Peterson, Michael (Angela) France, Daniel (Meladee) Nelson, Angela (Adam) Burton and his siblings Richard (Annette) France, Rosemary (Kert) Beynon, and LuAnn France-Morris along with 17 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Michael is preceded in death by his mother and father and infant twin granddaughters Harlee and Bryndee Peterson. Michael's children would like to personally thank Michael G. Stults, MD, our step father, for going above and beyond to give us extra time with our father during the Christmas season. A viewing will be held at Southern Utah Mortuary in Cedar City at 11:30 am and followed by funeral services at 1:00 pm Saturday December 20, 2014. In lieu of flowers, donations for funeral expenses are gratefully accepted at the Michael H. France Memorial Fund at any Wells Fargo. Arrangements are under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary.

Freeman, Steven  
Steven Roy Freeman Beaver, Utah Steven Roy Freeman, age 65, passed away in Beaver, Utah on December 12, 2014. Steven was born on June 27, 1949 in Murray, Utah to Russell Freeman and Ruth Olsen. Steve is a veteran of the Vietnam War and a long time resident of Las Vegas, Nevada where he was employed in construction and as a handy man. He was really a jack of all trades and if it was broken, he could probably fix it. But in his heart Steve was always a country boy and when the city got too big for him he moved to Beaver, UT where he could have some space and raise his beloved birds. He shared his love of fishing with his wife, Colleen and he always got a kick out of how she was a much better fisherman than him! After retiring in 2011, he started the hobby of his dreams, pottery. He built a shop and would spend hours in it everyday making his pots. He loved the simple life and a good conversation. He is survived by his wife, Colleen; his children, Heather (Todd) Gottschalk, Brian Freeman, Rachel Kincade and Kristina Crawford; five grandchildren, Megan, Natalie, Luke, Uriah and JC; four brothers, Lynn Freeman, Kendall Freeman, Wayne (Sieglinde) Freeman and Von (Valonne) Freeman; and two sisters, Anita (Roger) Gardner and Linda (Deon) Shimbeck. He was preceded in death by his parents Ruth and Russell Freeman, brother Gordon Freeman, sister Camille Turnbeaugh and son Jason Freeman. His Memorial Service will be held December 20, 2014, 11:00 AM at the Washington Stake Center at 446 E Mangum Road, Washington, UT. Arrangements under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary. Online condolences can be sent to www.sumortuary.com .
