1936 ~ 2013
Elliott Traylor passed away peacefully in her sleep the
morning of Friday, May 3, 2013, at home due to unexpected
She was born January 31, 1936 in Provo, Utah to Donald
and Elva Elliott. She spent many years with her young family
in Southern California and later moved to Northern Utah.
She fulfilled a lifelong dream of graduating from college
with a BS in Human Resources from Westminster College. She
was married to Melvin Adams Mitchell and had two beautiful
children. She later married Lester Traylor, and they have
lived in South Jordan, UT.
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints she served faithfully in many callings but talked
fondly and shared many uplifting experiences of her service
as a relief society president in Southern California. Marveen
had a great love for genealogy. Health challenges in later
years slowed her ability to pursue this passion. Her greatest
enjoyment came from involvement in the lives of her children
and grandchildren. She will miss them greatly but as the
veil is thin she will surely watch them grow and progress
from Heaven above. Throughout her life she showed unending
kindness and compassion to all in need and particularly
to her family and extended family.
She is preceded in death by both parents and brother Ronald
Elliott. She is survived by husband, Lester Traylor, son
Randy (Heidi) Mitchell, daughter Kelly (Craig) Esplin, brother
Larry Elliott, sister Susanne Hall, 4 step children, 26
grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren and many nieces and
nephews, all of whom she loved dearly.
