Taylor, preceded her in death; they were married for 56 years. Mary Lou was born May 16, 1924 in American Fork, Utah to Delbert Andrew and Helen Chipman Heiselt. When she was 14 months old her father passed away. Six years later, her mother, Helen, married Fred W. (Buck) Dixon, the father who lovingly raised her. Mary Lou graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1942. She worked part-time while attending Brigham Young University as a secretary for Elder Hugh B. Brown, a professor at BYU. She married Floyd R. Taylor in the Salt Lake Temple in 1947. They both graduated from Brigham Young University in 1948. They set up residency in Provo where they enjoyed raising their family. Mary Lou enjoyed being at home raising her children, but always had a love of learning and continued her education. She took a class each semester; Mary Lou completed her MA degree in 1970. When her youngest child began school, she went to work at Farrer Junior High as a school counselor. She had a wonderful career counseling hundreds of youth for 20 years. Mary Lou was always active in the LDS Church serving in many callings in her ward and stake in the Primary, Young Women, Sunday School, and Relief Society. Mary Louís devotion and service to the LDS Church and the students with whom she worked was exceeded only by her love and devotion to her family, who were the center of her life. Enjoying family vacations and reunions were a priority for her. The family took many trips in their camper, first across Utah and then from coast to coast. Mary Lou and Floyd created a gathering place at their home for their children and extended family on the Fourth of July. These are memories that established strong family bonds. Genealogy and family history were a focus in Mary Louís life in her later years. She wrote bedtime stories from the histories of her ancestors and had them printed for all of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. These stories provide faith-promoting lessons that connect our family through the generations. Mary Lou is survived by her five children: Colleen (Steve) Densley, Provo, Utah; Douglas Dixon Taylor, Douglas, Wyoming; Richard Floyd (Diane) Taylor, Orem, Utah; Julie Ann (Carl) Seaberg, Alston, Michigan; and Lisa (Ken) Wagner, Laie, Hawaii; one brother, David (Pat) Dixon, Provo, Utah and two sisters-in-law, Pat Dixon and Judy Dixon. Mary Lou also leaves behind a great legacy of 21 grandchildren, 55 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren who dearly love her and will miss her until we meet again.

Class of 1947. Lee Dorius.

Lee was born a twin in Ephraim, Utah near midnight on September 6, 1929 to Wilford and Delilah Dorius. His twin sister, Delilah Dorius Scott, was born in the early hours the following day. As twins they always celebrated their birthday on September 7. Lee never realized the actual date of his birth till later in life. Lee's mother died due to complications of the twin's birth, therefore he was raised from an infant by his uncle and aunt, Harvey and Cordelia Booth of Provo, Utah. Lee was always grateful to his mother and the sacrifice she gave of her life for his. He was the youngest boy in the family of six. All preceded him in death: Floyd (Laura) Dorius, Robert (Launa) Dorius, Melba (Rollo) Larson, Keith (survived by wife Kay) Dorius, Delilah (Donal) Scott (survived by wife Phyllis) Scott. At nine years old, Lee began his working career putting together strawberry crates at his uncle's Edgemont farm. He attended Farrer Middle School and Brigham Young High School. He worked as a custodian to support himself while attending high school and graduated in 1947. Lee met his first and only love of 57 years, wife Patricia Ann Welsh on the Timpanogos Hike. They were married on September 29, 1955 and later sealed in the Provo LDS Temple. He worked first at Robarge cabinet shop then Anderson Lumber where he perfected his carpentry skills before working 35 years to retirement at Ferres Mill in Provo, Utah. Lee's entrepreneurial work ethic led to owning a countertop fabrication business often installing countertops in many of the local LDS church buildings. He taught his children the value of hard work. Often saying, "It's not how much you have, but how you take care of it". His children and their children were his greatest joys: John Dorius (deceased); Richard (Mary Jo) Dorius; Michael Dorius (deceased); Ryan (Lisa) Dorius; Susan Haws; Kathy (Brett) Lovelady; Kim (Gina) Dorius; 15 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. He was a member of the LDS church and held various callings but his favorite of which was being a home teacher. Lee found his home away from home fishing in the Provo River and hunting, camping and four-wheeling in the mountains. Some of Lee's favorite activities included: mowing lawns, planting his garden, canning tomato juice, picking apples from the orchard to make his legendary applesauce, going on drives, feeding the ducks, getting a hamburger, shopping trips to Deseret Industries, fixing appliances and lawn mowers, and having garage sales. Lee loved giving away treasures that he had collected or fixed to his family and friends. He enjoyed family get togethers more than anything in the world. His famous words, "Haven't I seen you somewhere before?" or "I can't miss this! - All my cute relations", will always be treasured. He would reminisce about his childhood experiences telling all how special his family was to him and how much he loved them. There will be a "Celebration of Life" open house for all family and friends of Lee's held Friday, November 30 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Noah's (note address correction): 644 North 2000 West, Lindon, Utah. Condolences may be emailed to info@bergmortuary.com. Interment to be held at 12:30 p.m., November 29, at East Lawn Memorial Hills of Provo, Utah finally resting at "his building lot with a great view". [Deseret News November 28, 2012] Source
