29: Given at her funeral Just before I left to go home last month .....Mom said to me, love you...my daughter, my friend." Coleen Muehlfeit Smith Watching my children and grandchildren play and laugh with Mom. She was never too busy or too sick to do this. Very few days went by that I didn't call her and say, "What are you doing?." I will miss hearing her voice daily and will miss shopping with her at D.I. Linda Muehlfeit Elliott I took Mom and Dad fishing in the boat a while ago and Mom was dangling her pole over the boat and the line was only about 3" in the water. She caught a fish like that. Needless to say it was the biggest fish caught the whole day and she razzed us about it for quite a while. Lynn Muehlfeit My best memories of Mom -- She taught me that the most important relationships we can have are with family. She loved her family and taught me how to be a good grandma by her example. I appreciate that mom always took us to church and helped me gain a testimony of the gospel and that "FAMILIES CAN TRULY BE FOREVER." Paulette Muehlfeit Beckstead A few months ago I came up here to show Mom and Dad my new car. Linda and I took the top off and intended to sneak Mom away while Dad was gone. We left her wheelchair by the garage and loaded her in the car....barefoot. As we were getting ready to pull away Dad came home and caught us. We piled Dad in the backseat and went for an afternoon joyride. The wind was blowing thru Mom's hair and she loved it. Even though she had many grandkids she got excited and helped with each new edition as if it was the first and only. I'll miss her greatly. Karen Muehlfeit Crookston I remember Mom always sewing something for someone. She taught me to sew.... a talent I love and hate at the same time. My most treasured memory of mom is being with her as she took her last breath. She mouthed the words "I Love You" I gently leaned down to her ear and said "I know and we love you too...but it is time for you to go home." And she took her last breath. She taught me in that moment that love is what it is all about. Nancy Muehlfeit North My greatest memories of grandma are of when I was small ..... I would come stay with her alone. I would sit in her chair with her at night watching "Falcon Crest and Dallas". She would brush my hair then and tell me that it was O.K. I asked a lot of questions because That's the only way I could learn. Paula Elliott Draper Paula and I would come and sleep over, when we woke up in the morning she would cook us fried spuds, I would put a dot of ketchup on every single potato. And I'll never forget her saying "Roy get out of my kitchen, I can do this myself." Susie Elliott Lage Every time I saw grandma as soon as I walked in the door, she always got a huge grin on her face, and her arms flew open wide. She wouldn't let me by her without a big hug and kiss. That always made me feel so good. Every time we left she would say "I Love-a, Love-a, Love--a you" Now I use that saying in raising my own child. Another memory is when at grandma's I'd always look in her drawer and pull out her pink lipsticks, and try them on....I never seemed to look as good as she did. What an inspiration in my life, and she still is "the worlds greatest grandma." Aimee Beckstead Morgan Whenever I came to visit grandma and grandpa....Grandma would always have her nails grown out for me to give her a manicure. Anna North She always had a sense of humor Dallas North
30: Cleo Elaine Jones Muehlfeit's Patriarchal Blessing | Menan, Idaho March 5,1944 A Blessing given by Patriarch James Heber Holland upon the head of Cleo Elaine Jones Muehlfeit daughter of Warden Jones and Lola Yearsley born 24 August 1924 at Menan, Idaho. Sister Cleo Elaine Jones Muehlfeit by the authority of the Holy Priesthood vested in me and in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by virtue of my calling as Patriarch of the Rigby Stake of Zion and by your request I lay my hands upon your head and I bless you with every gift and blessing necessary for the successful accomplishment of your life's mission upon the earth. You have been wonderfully blessed in being born of such goodly parents at this day and time while the Gospel is upon the earth with all its gifts and blessings. This you have merited because of your faithfulness in the Spirit World. For there you were one of those faithful souls who upheld the Lord and Savior and sustained the plan which He proposed for the salvation of mankind upon the earth. And you shouted for joy at the prospect of coming upon the earth and receiving a body for you knew thereby you could progress and fit and prepare yourself for salvation and exaltation in the Celestial Kingdom of Our Father, and that you should have glory added upon your head forever and ever provided you proved true and faithful. You are of the lineage of Ephraim and an heir to all of the blessings of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and a very great responsibility rests upon you of teaching both by precept and by example the truths of the everlasting gospel. But I promise you that if you will keep your mind and body clean and unspotted from the sins of the world and that if you will keep the Word of Wisdom, and be honest and upright in all of your dealings, be virtuous and honorable in all of your ways, seek the Lord in humility and prayer and thanksgiving and implore Him for strength over evil and I promise you that you shall be blessed with wisdom and power and light and intelligence and you will be fitted and qualified for the labors and duties required of you, and you shall have health and life and strength and power over evil. But it will require a constant effort on your part to battle against the powers of evil for the adversary desires your overthrow. He is striving with all His might to overcome the Savior and His work upon the earth and it will be necessary to be constantly on your guard but I promise you power and strength against him and that your life shall be spared until you have fully accomplished your life's mission and that you shall be fully prepared when life is ended for an exaltation in the Celestial Kingdom of Our Father. You shall be called to places of responsibility and you shall have the love and respect of those who preside over you and of those over whom you preside and you shall have the privilege of seeing the fruits of your noble example in life and that your kindred and loved ones and associates will love, honor and bless you for your noble, upright life. And you will be the means of doing much good upon the earth. Now I seal these blessings upon you together with all other blessings that will be for your peace, comfort and happiness and I seal you up to come forth in the glorious resurrection with your kindred and loved ones through your faithfulness in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen
