Our beloved mother, Verdena Wade, passed away on Monday, August 6, 2018, at the age of 84.

Verdena was born on January 3, 1934, in Bloomington Idaho, to Steven and Blanch Bateman. She grew up in Ogden, Utah, and graduated from Ogden High school.

Verdena met her one true love, Rowan, in November of 1951, and they were married on March 21, 1952, in Ogden Utah. They were later sealed in the Ogden temple. They built their life together of 62 years making each other their top priority and supporting each other always. Together they lived in Ogden, and Kaysville but made their home in Layton, Utah. It is there that they raised three children.

Verdena has always been known for her faithfulness in the gospel. She was an active member of the Layton Woodland Park Ward and served in many capacities. She was an exceptional cook and very talented seamstress. Verdena worked for the Bon Marche as an audit clerk for several years.

Verdena is survived by, daughter, Kelli (Kim) Taylor; son, Jeff (Cory); daughter, Becky Chambers; and grandchildren, Justin Wade and Camille Hart.

Preceded in death by husband, Rowan; parents; and seven sisters.
