Pauline Grant Cedarstrom Pugh passed away peacefully July 17, 2018 at the age of 91. She was born July 17, 1927 to Francis Bromley and Myrtle Powell Grant. She was the oldest girl in a family of five boys and two girls. Pauline learned to work at a young age, cleaning, cooking, tending children, and helping with anything her parents needed. Her work ethic continued throughout her life.
Mom was born and raised in Lehi, Utah, and graduated from Lehi High School in 1945. She completed two years at Brigham Young University before she fell in love and married Ernest Roger Cedarstrom in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with four children: Craig Ernest Cedarstrom, Grant Roger Cedarstrom, Adele Cedarstrom (Drew) Downs, and Susan Arlene Cedarstrom. Pauline and Ernest divorced in 1974. Later in life she married Gaylon Pugh. They enjoyed many activities together such as square dancing, boating, snowmobiling, and camping. They divorced in 1999.
Her life was one of service to family, church, and community. In 1992, Mom began tutoring children at Lehi Elementary in the foster grandparenting program, which she continued for twenty-four years until spring of 2016 when she suffered a stroke and was no longer able to serve.
