Mona Dee (Muir) Worth Obituary
Mona Dee Muir (Worth), 99, of Blackfoot, passed away peacefully on Thursday April 2, 2015 at the Bingham Skilled Nursing Center.
Mona was born January 4, 1916 to Albert Burton and Lillie Agnes Nelson. Her grandmother Martha Burton was the midwife that helped deliver her. It was very cold and to keep her warm they put her on a pillow and laid it on the wood stove door. She weighted about 6 pounds. 
Mona was the 3rd child of 6 children. All her siblings preceded her in death. Lyle Burton, Lucille Butterfield, Lloyd Burton, Al Lindstrom, & Bernard Lindstrom.
Mona was introduced to Stephen Lamoni Muir by a mutual friend. They later met again at a dance. They were married May 5, 1916. They had 6 children. Ada Dee Muir Macintosh(Roy), Patricia Muir Wahl, Stephen Lamoni Muir Jr(LaRue), Eldon Albert Muir(Sue), Max Gene Muir(Lynda) Linda Lou Muir Stumbo(Gary).
Mona was raised in Grays Lake. They always had lots of snow and harsh winters. They kept busy raising animals and keeping family warm. Her step father made her a pair of skis and she loved to ski down the small hills. She went to school close by and had to either walk or ski. Mona would make bread in morning before school and when she came home she would put it in tins and then bake it. It was one of her daily shores besides feeding the animals. Mona was the best runner in her school and when she had children they learned that well because they couldn't out run her.
When Mona was 16 she went to Riverton to live with her sister Lucille and her husband Russ for a year and go to Murray High School. Her and Lucille were baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints while she was down there. 
Some of the places Lamoni and Mona lived were, Chesterfield, Blackfoot, Downey, Rockland, American Falls and Rupert.
Mona's favorite things to do were crocheting, sewing, cooking, camping, fishing, gardening and tending her flowers, walking, and her family. She loved to cook a hot dog and marshmallows in the campfire and just be in the outdoors. Mona loved children and was always taking little things for the kids to play with in church just in case someone with children sat by her. She loved the Lord and his gospel but most of all she Loved her family. She considered all she knew to be her family. Her later years were spent with her children who adored her and did all kinds of things with and for her. When she fell and had to go to the hospital and then rehab she made do with what she was given. She made new friends and they took very good care of her. All her nurses called her grandma. She was loved by all and will be missed by many. She had 6 children, 24 grandchildren, 61 great grandchildren, and 65 great great grandchildren.
Thanks so much for all the good care from the staff at Bingham Skilled Nursing and Rehab and especially her granddaughter Kellie Muir that worked there also. They were all so kind and loved her too. 
She was preceded in death by her husband Stephen Lamoni Muir, and 3 other husbands, Doc Larsen, Glen McLain, & Garr Worth, a son Max Gene Muir, son in law Wally Eldridge, a daughter in law Judy Muir, 4 grandsons, 3 granddaughters, a great granddaughter and 2 great grandson.
