Patricia Ann Price Barton passed away peacefully surrounded by her family Friday, July 5, 2019, at the age of 91. She was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on May 13, 1928 to Leonard and Irma Price. She was the only girl of six children.
Her family moved to Tod Park when she was 15. She married her sweetheart, Raymon F. Barton, on April 18, 1947, and they had four children: Anita (deceased), Butch (Carol), Connie (Rick) Lewis, and Ralene (Mike).
Mom spent countless hours following her children’s activities, whether it be baseball, girl scouts, or band, she was always there to cheer us on.
She had 10 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, five great-great-grandchildren, and one great-great-great-grandchild, whom she supported in every way she could.
Mom spent several years as a volunteer and in compassionate services. Her last job as a volunteer was at Mountain West Medical Center, where for the last 15 years she greeted people at the front desk and pushed the hospitality cart to provide snacks to the families of loved ones at the hospital. Her final shift at the hospital was the day before she was admitted to the same hospital.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, daughter, four brothers, and three great-grandchildren.
A viewing will be held Wednesday, July 10, 2019, from 6 – 8 p.m., at Tate Mortuary, 110 S. Main St., Tooele, Utah. Funeral service will be held Thursday, July 11, 2019, at 11 a.m., with a prior viewing from 9:30 – 10:45, at the LDS Church located at 192 W. 200 South.
We would like to thank the staff at Mountain West Medical Center for their kindness and compassion for our mom.
