Gaylie Ora Dixon Durfee

Our devoted wife and angel mother returned home to her Maker on June 14, 2012. Gaylie Ora Dixon Durfee began her journey on Earth on June 30, 1937 being born to Quayle & Ora Lucina Jeppson Dixon. She was excited to join them and her two older brothers and is survived by her sister Annetta Anderson (Richard) and sister-in-laws Beverly Dixon and Kaye Warnke (John), who she loves completely.

She married her eternal companion of 57 years, (Jack) John Clealund Durfee on August 19, 1955 in the Salt Lake City, Utah Temple. She lived a life of discipleship in loving and serving those around her. She endlessly fulfilled her many callings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in all organizations on Ward and Stake levels. Cherished memories include serving as an Ordinance Worker in the Mount Timpanogos Temple and serving a Member Locator Service Mission with her sweetheart.

She loves the Lord and loves her posterity. She is survived by spouse, (Jack) John Clealund Durfee, nine children and spouses, John Durfee (Lori), Deborah Lovelady (Alan), Patricia Miller (David), Kay Marie (Katie) Smith (Ben), Denise Buhler (Steve), Kathleen Blood (Todd). MaryLynn Quayson-Sackey (Alex), Jacquelyn Durfee, Sabrina Tettey (Godgreat), fifty-four grandchildren and nineteen great-grandchildren with a grandchild and great-grandchild on their way. She leaves them with a great legacy of faith, gratitude and compassion. She is loved and admired by those she tirelessly served.
