Mom grew up in Sandy, attended Jordan High School, met the love of her life Desmond Charles Peckham, they married February 13, 1937. With three little children they lived in a small house in Sandy then moved to a garage in Midvale with no running water while Desmond built their home. Desmond often worked out of town so the house and children were left to Mom's capable hands. In 1948 the family moved to Indianola where Mom was the community 4-H leader. In 1960 they made their final move to Helper. Mom served in many capacities (including president) in the Helper Women's Club. Mom worked hand-in-hand with City Council to beautify the Senior Park, and other community efforts. Mom was a life-long member of the Sewing Club, Rio Grande Vet Club, Ladies ' Auxiliary, Good Sam Club and the Helper Lions Club. Fond memories and good friends were made while traveling with the Lions to Australia, Japan, Bahamas and many locations in the United States. After Desmond's retirement many happy summers were spent traveling the Oregon coast and frequent visits to Penny in Alaska.
