    Sarah Anne Dalton McLaughlin passed peacefully in her sleep on Feb. 24, 2011 in San Jose, Calif. at the age of 78.

    Anne was born July 2, 1932 in Moab, Utah to Albertus and Emma Dalton. She was the youngest of nine children and is survived by two sisters, Ellen and Merle, and one brother, Melvin.

    Anne met John W. McLaughlin while both were attending Utah State University. After marrying in the Logan Temple, they had seven children: Bert D., Steve W., John B., Shannon, Heather, Andrew S., and Rebecca.

    Anne enjoyed her role as grandma to 23 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren with four more due this year. No doubt, playing with the young ones was her favorite pastime.

    Anne enjoyed her golden years by traveling to beautiful places with her husband, visiting church history sites around the states, doing temple work, and visiting with family. She especially loved returning to Moab every five years to reunite with all of her wonderful family.

    Considerably interested in school, she was proud of her husband and children for acquiring various degrees and continual education.

    Services were held at the Moorpark Ward building in San Jose, Calif. on Monday, Feb. 28, 2011.

    She will be dearly missed by family and friends… until we meet again.
