Relia LeBaron Gilmore, 87, passed away May 3, 2010 in St. George, Utah. Born in Santaquin, Utah on February 22, 1923 to David R. and Hazel Bennett LeBaron. She married R. L. Gilmore September 2, 1945 in Salt Lake City.
Mom grew up in the Santaquin/Genola area and later lived in Salt Lake City. She traveled to California where she worked in a defense factory during World War II. Her early marriage years were in Pampa, Texas. She and her family returned to Payson in 1951 where they raised their two sons. Mom remained in Payson, with the help of friends and neighbors, until 2009 when health circumstances forced her out of her home. She was cared for in St. George by her son, Rick and daughter-in-law Emmy, until her death. We will greatly miss her sunny disposition and unique laugh.
