    Ignoring own standards and experts, Utah commission pushes reopening

    The COVID-19 model from the CDC predicts an increase in deaths from the coronavirus from Utah in the coming weeks, and key indicators predict more hospitalizations are to come.

    Marie Crandall, 84, passed away Saturday, June 16 of complications due to a stroke. She was born Dec. 13, 1927 to Lucien Randolph and Ethelinda Henrie Tangren in Moab, Utah, the seventh of 11 children.

    She attended schools in Moab and Provo, graduating from Provo High School in 1946. She then attended Brigham Young University.

    Marie began working as a telephone operator for Mountain Bell (American Telephone and Telegraph) when she was 18, and retired after 32 years of service with the Pioneers in 1978. She loved her job and the people she worked with.

    Marie married George Jensen Horn in 1948 and is survived by three of their four children: Mark (Pat) Horn, Kristine Horn, and Todd (Nancy) Horn.

    She married Robert Jeffs in 1961 and is survived by their daughter, Lorie (Gregory) Smith.

    In 1967, she married Herbert William Creviston and is survived by their two daughters: Carolyn (Bradley) Slade and Melinda (Sean) Cheney.

    She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various capacities, including Relief Society president. As a Provo Temple worker, she operated the telephone switchboard for many years.

    Marie delighted in serving others. She enjoyed oil painting, gardening, building and remodeling, traveling, auctions and tag sales, but above all, she loved her family and felt they were her greatest accomplishment.

    In her “Golden Years,” Marie married Louis E. Crandall on Dec. 10, 1999, in the Provo Temple.

    She is survived by her husband and his children: Janie Hjorth, Mem (Kim) Bryan, Annette (Gordon) Olson, Ruthie (Bart) Dangerfield, and Louis Jr. (Lisa) Crandall, and their wonderful families, in addition to her 18 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by five brothers and a sister: Garth (Alice) Tangren, Clair Tangren, Richard (Lakoma) Tangren, Karl (Joylyn) Tangren, Edward (Cleone) Tangren, and Norma Williams.

    She was preceded in death by her son, Rand Steven Horn; grandson, Colby Rulon Smith; sister, Imogene Praetor; and brothers, Robert and Henry Hugh Tangren.

    Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 22, at the Bonneville 4th Ward Chapel, 1289 East 300 South in Provo. Family and friends are invited to call at the Bonneville 4th Ward Chapel on Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. and Friday from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m., prior to services.
