Our beloved Shirley passed away on February 20, 2020. We mourn her passing; we have been so blessed to have been a part of her life. She was the youngest child of William and Mildred Hammons, born in Independence Missouri on Friday July 13th, 1934. With her father being in the Service, her family had the opportunity to live in Missouri, Texas, Arizona, Colorado and finally settling in Morgan, Utah. Shirley graduated from Morgan High School where she met her eternal companion, Don Lester Creager. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on December 5, 1952.
Shirley worked as a pin girl in Como Springs Bowling alley, at the Mountain Bell Phone Company as an operator. After her children were in school she worked at IRS and then went to work at Hill Air Force Base where she then retired. Her most treasured job was being a mother and having a listening ear for her children, friends and her children’s friends, of which many called her ‘Mom’. She enjoyed time camping in the Uinta’s, at their Aspen Springs property and going to Jackson Hole, WY. with Don on many occasions. Mom enjoyed shopping, Holidays and visiting others and going for drives around the county with her cherished pup, Molly.
She is survived by her children, Bart (Becky) Creager, Dea Clark, Vicki (Richard) Linder, Jan (Rick) Kamp and Jill (Terry) Wayman; 15 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren; with 1 great and 2 great-great grandchildren coming this spring; her sisters Phyllis Lee, JoElla Wright Francis and Nancy Mikesell.
She was preceded in death by her husband Don, her parents William and Mildred, granddaughter Amy, great granddaughter Isabelle and many other family members.
