Obituary for Ruth Fay Amon

Ruth Fay Amon was born 15 minutes after her twin sister, Rhoda May, on August 27, 1924 in Baker City, Oregon to George Loren and Eva (Ashby) Nelson. The family grew to include Jack and Carolyn. They lived in Pondosa, a tiny sawmill community in the mountains of eastern Oregon, for about twelve years.
In 1936 they moved to a farm in Dietrich, Idaho, where Ruth went to most of high school. They were in Wendell, Idaho, for her last year of high school. Then Ruth went to beauty school in Boise, Idaho where she met her husband Earl Raymond Amon. They were married on April 18, 1943 in Wendell, and then in 1945, the family was sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Together they had six children: Linda Raye, Claude Loren, Matt Thomas, Gayla Sue, Bradley Earl, and RaLene Joyce.
During the Second World War, Earl was in the Army stationed in Boise, Idaho and Fort Lewis, Washington and several military bases in California. After the war, Earl and Ruth had a farm in Warsaw, Illinois where Earl was brought up. They went to the LDS church in the historic Carthage Jail where the Prophet Joseph Smith was martyred. After Claude Loren died at four months, the family moved to various cities in Idaho, finally settling in Twin Falls for the next eight years, before they moved to Pocatello in 1963. During that time, Earl often hauled produce, bringing the load home where Ruth sold it at fruit stands in front of their home.
Ruth was very active in the community, including the LDS Church, the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, and the Parent Teacher Association. She had an alterations and sewing business in her home for many years. She also enjoyed being a care giver for the elderly. Ruth was very industrious and continuously worked very hard throughout her life.
