Ruth Suarez Evans, 76 years old, from Mapleton Utah passed away peacefully after a long battle with cancer in her home surrounded by family.

Born on January 15, 1939 in Colombia to Francisco Suarez and Ana Rosa Echeverri. She served in different capacities for the LDS Church including being a temple worker for many years.
