Beloved Mother &
MAGNA/PARK CITY-Mary got her wish to be reunited with her husband Fred Eley and Daughter Shellie Ann Eley Cully on April 2. Mary passed away peacefully surrounded by her family who loved her very much. She was preceded in death by her daughter, husband, mother, father and step mother and is survived by her Sons; Bret and Lorie Lyman of Pleasant Grove; David Eley of Salt Lake City; Ken and Monica Eley of Castle Dale; Brother Kirk Knowlden of North Hollywood CA; sisters Joanne and (Dell) Yates of Hurricane UT; Ethel and (Tom) Jeff's of West Jordan UT; sisters in Law Corky and Noni Eley of Laguna Hill CA; 13 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
After serving in the armed forces in Germany, Mary met the love of her life and husband Fred Eley of Park City, UT and they were happily married for 51 years. Mary loved spending time with her family, genealogy, fishing and chances are that if you lived in Park City, she took you fishing as a kid with her sons. She was greatly loved and will be missed by all.
Her family would like to thank the wonderful people who gently cared for their mother from Good Shepard Hospice, especially Glenna, Stacie and Jane.
Family and friends are invited to a Graveside services that will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday April 6, at the Park City Cemetery under the direction of Olpin Hoopes Funeral Home.
