1919 ñ 2008
Our beloved mother and grandmother joyfully joined her eternal companion on Fatherís Day, June 15, 2008, at the age of 88 due to illness incident to age.
She was born Sept. 13, 1919, the youngest of six children, to David Bickmore and Clara Martha Sellers Kidd in Bluffdale, Utah. She graduated from Jordan High School. After her children were born, she attended the School of Nursing at Weber State College, graduating with an LPN degree. She married Hyrum Thomas Eggett, July 19, 1938, and the marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on Nov. 9, 1938.
Our mother was an active member of the LDS Church, where she held many positions and callings, including a mission to the Georgia Atlanta Mission. She was a hard worker and helped to support her family. She loved writing poetry, cooking, crocheting, bowling, camping, collecting salt and pepper shakers, dolls, spoons, and most all being with her family. ##M:More##
