Verdell Harvey Call passed away surrounded by family on October 15, 2020 at Ogden Regional Medical Center.

She was raised in Eastland, Utah where she attended school and graduated from Monticello High School. She then attended Salt Lake City Trade Tech School where she received an Associates Degree in Fashion Design.

Verdell would marry Elmer James Call in the Ogden temple on September 3,1976. Jim would bring 5 children to this union, one more child would be added to the family, bringing the total to 9 children.
Verdell was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was called to be the president of Relief Society, Young Women’s and Primary. She also accepted the call to be the primary chorister, nursery leader and activity days leader. Along with being a busy homemaker and raising a large family, she also worked at the Preston Citizen Newspaper.
Her hobbies included sewing, creating blessing and baptism clothing for her children, grandchildren, and even, great-grandchildren. Her beautiful wedding cakes were admired by many. Because she had a love and talent for crocheting, embroidery, knitting, painting and gardening, she decided to share and teach her children and grandchildren these talents.
Verdell was a giving and thoughtful lady who was kind to all she met. She was the best mother and grandmother but never wanted any recognition for all she did and gave to others. She enjoyed her life staying in the background and letting the light shine on family and friends.
