Iretta Brannen Mahalko
1924 ~ 2014

Our beloved mother and grandmother, Iretta Mahalko, passed away peacefully on December 25 at American Fork Hospital, following a brief illness.

Iretta was born November 30, 1924 in Lake Butler, Florida to William T. and Martha H. Brannen. After graduating high school, she worked at Camp Blanding, Florida during WWII, where she met and married Daniel Mahalko on Jan 20, 1945. They moved to Scranton, Pennsylvania, where they raised three children, and moved to Highland, Utah, in 1993. Their marriage was sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on June 22, 1964.

Iretta was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She held numerous callings in the Relief Society, and served with Daniel as a temple worker in Washington, DC and American Fork. They also served with LDS Employment Services and as service missionaries in the Provo South Mission. She was an avid genealogist. She loved to cook for family and friends, and was a tireless worker.

Iretta is survived by sisters Bernice Griffis and Delores Dicks, a brother, Theodore Brannen, children Dennis and Gene, and three grandchildren and three great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and six siblings, her dear husband Daniel, and her daughter Diane Mahalko.
