Our beloved `Granny Affy,' returned home in the soft, early evening of January 10, 1991, to be with her loved ones.
Afton was the much loved mother of Sharon and Ray Meik, Marsha and Nelson Ames, Forrest and Mona Sims and Robyn Thomas; the treasured grandmother to six grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren; the precious sister of LaVonne Thomas; and the priceless friend to so many. She was preceded in death by two brothers, Rulon and Dean.Afton loved the mountains where she found many hours of peace and contentment. She enjoyed gardening and truly felt the vibration of the earth around her. She was born July 14, 1914, in Salt Lake City Utah, to Clifton E. and Ellen Maude Ruffell Taylor. She married Theron Sims; later divorced.

The family extends their heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Phil Roberts and Hospice nurse Sharon, who were open, honest and respected mom's dignity. Afton will live in our hearts always.
