PLEASANT GROVE - After a short separation of less than two months, Glenna Taylor Oveson, 84 of Pleasant Grove, was reunited with her eternal companion, Maron, Wednesday, March 12, 2003.
Glenna was born in Orangeville to George Lee and Francis Woodward Taylor on Aug. 13, 1918. She was the third child in a family of five children.
She grew up in Orangeville and attended school there and in Castle Dale. She met her sweetheart, Maron Oveson, while in high school and they were married Feb. 24, 1939 in the Manti LDS Temple.
Glenna and Maron lived in Price after spending two years in Washington state during WWII. While in Price, Glenna enjoyed her family and friends and loved the Lions Club as much as her husband did. Together, they traveled all over the U.S. making friends and supporting the ideals of the Lions Club.
After moving to Pleasant Grove, she enjoyed working at UP&L in American Fork, retiring with her husband in 1983 so they could enjoy life together.
Glenna loved getting dressed up and going to functions such as the Lions Club, Cadmus Club, Knife and Fork Club and dancing with Maron. She and Maron served a mission to the Provo LDS Temple until ill health came to Maron. She held many positions in the LDS Church and especially enjoyed her callings in the Young Women and Relief Society.
She is survived by her son, Craig (Paulette) Oveson, Pleasant Grove; daughter, Lisa Dawn (Richard) Hill, Hurricane; five grandchildren, Paul (Lisa), Steven and Justin Oveson; Morgan and Jordan Hill; seven great-grandchildren, Amanda Trever, Amber, Brianne, Camberlee, Nitanne, Stevie; and her sister, Donna Lee Luke. She was preceded in death by her husband, Maron, on Jan. 13, 2003; her parents; sisters, Ardis and Dora; and brother, Bruce.
