Stott George, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother
and friend passed away peacefully in her home March 26,
2012. Leola was born August 8, 1920 in Meadow, Millard Co,
Utah, to Joseph Leo and Velma Bushnell Stott. As a young
girl she was taught the value of hard work and spent many
hours working on the family farm.
After graduation from Millard High School, Leola attended
beauty school and became an accomplished beautician. Her
clients loved her hair-dos, and even more importantly her
advice, whether on fashion, home decorating, family relationships
or anything else they needed to talk about. She married
Lloyd Preal George on January 8, 1943 in the Salt Lake Temple.
Thus began a wonderful relationship that spanned more than
50 years until the death of her beloved companion in 1996.
Leola and her husband settled in Kanosh, Utah after his
service in World War II. They owned and operated a successful
mercantile business. Leola also supported her husband in
his ranching and farming endeavors. After raising their
children, they moved to Orem, Utah. Grandma loved the "big
city" and especially the mall. She had a beautiful
home where countless friends and family enjoyed her wonderful
meals and hospitality.
Leola served faithfully in various capacities in the Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout her life,
serving with her husband while he was Mission President
in Tempe Arizona and a member of the First and Second Quorums
of the Seventy, including an assignment in the South Pacific
Leola loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and
never missed a birthday. Every Sunday she served dinner
to her large extended family who will never forget these
wonderful meals and fun times with their cousins at Grandma
