1927 — 2018

Ruth Rigby, our loving mother and Grammy, passed away on August 25, 2018. She was born in Myton, Utah, August 10, 1927 to Roland Krebs Sr. and Marie Henrietta Ehlers. She grew up in Salt Lake City and graduated from South High School. She attended Brigham Young University and Louisiana State University. She married J Keith Rigby on June 14, 1945 in the Salt Lake City Temple. She worked for the Utah County Extension Agency teaching nutrition and at JoLene’s on Center Street creating displays and helping in the fabric department. But perhaps she is best loved for her lovely quilt tops, which she often gave away, and her raspberry jam made from the raspberries in her yard.

She is survived by two daughters, Claudia Monette Rigby Bosworth (Fred) and Jaynanne Rigby Meads, 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, J Keith Rigby Sr. and her son, J Keith Rigby Jr.

Funeral Services will be held Friday, August 31, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at the Edgemont North Stake Center, 345 East 4525 North, Provo, Utah. A viewing will be held prior to the services from 9:30-10:45 a.m. Interment will be at Eastlawn Memorial Hills. Condolences may be expressed at www.bergmortuary.com.
