Alpha V. Moon Richins passed away on 22 January, 2014 in her home at the age of 92. She was born in Bench Creek, Utah on 26 June, 1921 to Leslie Everett Moon and Clarissa Pearl Knight. She married her sweetheart, Lynn Richins, on 22 May, 1946 in the Salt Lake City Temple. Alpha's life was full of building wonderful memories with her family and friends, memories she revisited many times in her later years. Forever adding life to any gathering, she was always willing to join in any activity bringing smiles to everyone's face as she happily tried anything she was invited to try. Into her early eighties, she could still be found sliding down a waterslide or kneeling in the circle playing Rumpty-dump.
She faithfully served in many positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including Primary teacher and President, Ward and Stake Relief Society President. The calling she most frequently reflected upon was the blessing to serve as an ordinance worker with her husband in the Ogden Temple. She spent her later years enjoying the company of her husband, family, and friends.
She is now reunited with her husband, father, mother, brothers; Everett, Rulon, and Douglas and sisters; Isabell, and Dorothy. She will be missed by her sons Mike (Nellie) and Kevin (Pamela), 10 Grandchildren, 6 Great Grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, her sister LaDonna Brown, and many dear friends.
Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, 25 January at 12 Noon in the Coalville Stake Center Chapel. A viewing will be held Saturday morning from 10:30-11:45 a.m. prior to the services. Alpha will be laid to rest in the Coalville, Utah Cemetery next to her beloved husband.
