Mary Palacios Obituary
Mary Isaura Martinez Palacios
1920 ~ 2013
On June 24, 2013, our mother, Mary Isaura Martinez Palacios passed away peacefully at the home of her granddaughter Lisa surrounded by her loved ones; we are joyful that she is rejoining the love of her life, Joe.
Mary was born on September 25, 1920, in New Mexico. She came to Utah where she met Joe Palacios, her soul mate, and married him in 1942. Together they reared their six children in Carbon County, Utah. Mary is survived by all of her children: Josephine Turner ("Bud," deceased), Christina Palacios, Victoria Palacios, Gregory Palacios (Dayna), Frances Palacios, and Marianne Palacios (Blaine). Mary is also survived by 15 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, her sister, her brother, Carla Jones who was like a daughter and her goddaughter Dee Martinez.
Our beloved mother was preceded in death by her husband whom she held close to her heart for over twenty years, frequently speaking of joining him. Mom, Dad, we are happy you are together again. Mary was also preceded in death by her parents; by her siblings; by two sons-in-law; and by her grandchildren Chelsea Palacios and Derek Turner.
That Mary was loved by all is evidenced by the hundreds who attended her 90th birthday celebration. She was an amazing mother, self-sacrificing, and generous. She had the highest moral standards and was devoted to God and her church. Mary's sense of humor was legendary among us. Quick, witty, wry and self-effacing, she could bring us to the floor laughing with just a word or a look. And she was strong; she sustained the family through many crises. When we look at our children and at our grandchildren, we see Mary.
The family extends heartfelt thanks to Good Shepard Hospice for providing excellent care to Mary. Finally, words are not adequate to express the debt of gratitude we owe to Mary's granddaughter, Lisa Carbine and her family. Their love, patience and sacrifice made the end of her life the best experience it could possibly have been.
On Thursday, June 27, there will be a viewing from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Mitchell Funeral Home, 233 East Main Street, Price Utah, followed by the Holy Rosary at 7:00. A Requiem Mass celebrating Mary's life will be held on June 28 at 11:00 a.m. at Good Shepard Parish in East Carbon, Utah. A viewing will be held prior to the Mass from 10:00 to 11:00. Interment will be at Price City Cemetery beside her husband.
Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price where friends are always welcome daily and may share memories of Mary online at www.mitchellfuneralhome.net.
