Obituary for Mary Elizabeth Orwin

Our loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed away peacefully on November 28, 2018 with family by her side. Born December 07, 1933 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Joseph Benzon and Birdie Williamson. Married John William Orwin on June 13, 1952 in Salt Lake City.

Her greatest joy in life was her grandchildren; her children were always a “work in progress.” She said, “A child will always need their mother, and a mother’s job is a life-long journey.” Mom was the BEST mom, grandma, great-grandma, and great-great grandma ever! She was very proud of all her children and grandchildren. She did not let an opportunity pass to share with others her love and pride of her family. Mom’s unconditional love was and always will be felt by those whose life she touched.

Mom loved cooking and baking with her children, and especially her grandchildren. We all have a special Christmas memory of baking cookies and decorating them with Grandma. This special tradition she started will be carried on for many more generations.

Survived by her children: Donna Nosack, Allen (Debbi), John, and Suzie (Mark) Olsen; 13 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great grandchild; sisters: Lois, Ivy, and Marie. Preceded in death by parents; husband, John; 10 siblings; 3 grandchildren; and 3 great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at the Canyon Rim Ward, 1050 E. Galena Drive (9820 So). Family and friends may call Friday evening, December 7, 2018 (her 85th birthday) from 6-8 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 So. State St., Murray, and Saturday morning from 10-10:50 a.m. at the church prior to services. Interment at Murray City Cemetery.

The family would like to thank her caregivers at Legacy Village Memory Care in Taylorsville for the kindness they showed our mother.
