Colleen Bauer Webster, 85, our dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend, passed away on Feb. 10, 2014, after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s and diabetes.
The second child, Colleen was born on Dec. 2, 1928, in Cedar City, Utah, to John Carlos and Aurelia Worthen Bauer. She lived most of her life in Cedar City, graduating from Cedar City High School and marrying the love of her life, Dono Roundy Webster, on April 26, 1947. Their marriage was later solemnized in the St. George Temple. Theirs was a love affair beyond measure. Later in life, mom and dad moved to Ketchum, Idaho, where they lived happily until dad’s death on June 24, 2000. Family helped take care of mom until she needed more care than we could provide.
Being a wife and mother was everything to her and offered her many great adventures. Her testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ was apparent in the things she did and said, and is what made her an incredible example to her family. She leaves behind a vast number of people whose lives she has touched and enriched.
Colleen is survived by her son, Michael Dono (LaJauan “Lou”); her daughters, Karen (Randy) Stout, Cindy (Kary) Yates, and Lynnette Webster; 21 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Dono; daughter, Sharon (Jerry) Jorgensen; and stillborn son, Steven. A special thank you to those in the Cedar City 4th Ward that are helping with the funeral and luncheon—we appreciate your kind thoughts and generous service.
Funeral services were held on Monday, Feb. 17, 2014, at the Cedar City 4th LDS Ward Chapel, 500 West 400 North, Cedar City, Utah. Family and friends attended a viewing at the church prior to services. Interment was in the Cedar City Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to the famaily at www.warenski.com.
