Beverly Ann Gardner
-- 1948 ~ 2013 --

Beverly Ann Gardner, known to all those who loved her as "Dee Dee", returned to her heavenly home on May 1, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born to Robert Irving and Ann Marie Ellis Ward in Madison Wisconsin on August 17, 1948. Dee Dee married Dairrel G. Gardner in the Oakland LDS Temple on November 21, 1970 after a whirlwind courtship that continued through their nearly 43 years of marriage. They have 5 children and 16 grandchildren.

Dee Dee loved people, was "Best Friend" to nearly everyone she met and was incapable of speaking ill of anyone. She loved her family above all else and was tenacious in teaching and guiding them to "choose the right" and "return with honor". Service was her insatiable passion which resulted in her 25 years at LDS Girls Camp, 11 years as an Early Morning Seminary Teacher, and leadership callings in every women’s organization in her LDS Wards and Stakes. She was a creative mastermind with artistic skills to craft just the right visual display for every occasion. She was a superlative cook and part of "Three Angels Catering" in Crystal Lake Illinois until cancer took her other two Angels. She loved her Lord and Savior and her greatest unfulfilled desire was to serve a mission. We are confident she is now fulfilling that goal.

She is preceded in death by her parents and leaves behind her brothers Greg (Elena) Ward, and Geoff (Bobby) Ward; husband Dairrel G. Gardner; children Tiffanie Gardner, Payslie (Joe) Jackson, Clayton (Cheryl) Gardner, Cassie (Derric) Rykert, Barbara (Shawn) Shokouhi; 16 grandchildren and many brother-in-laws, sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm, Saturday, May 4, 2013 at the Highland 38th LDS Ward Chapel, 5853 West 10400 North, Highland, UT. 84003. Friends and family may call from 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm prior to the services at the church. Interment will be held at Highland City Cemetery immediately following the services.
