Jean Fotheringham

Jean Louise Fotheringham, age 87, has returned home to her Heavenly Father. She passed away on August 11th at her home in Glendale, Utah. The photo shown above was taken in 1964, shortly after her marriage to Don Fotheringham. At that time both were living in California where they were sealed for eternity at the LDS temple in Los Angeles.

Jean and Don each had three boys from a previous marriage. She then gave birth to four more children, so she and Don raised a large family of ten children. Their first son John lives at their Glendale home. Jean was a fantastic mother, equally devoted to her adoptive as well as her natural children. She was very sharp on vitamins and nutrition, making certain her children were healthy and happy.

Jean’s parents were William and Ferne Naugle, also of Los Angeles. Although Jean was their only child, she was definitely not a pampered little girl. Jean was blessed with an innate self-confidence, never looking for praise or special attention. That casual, unselfish nature characterized her entire life.

During her school years Jean Louise Naugle was advanced in music and all academic studies. She was the student body president at Fremont High School in Los Angeles. She was also on the Drill Team, held a 4-point grade average, and later earned a full scholarship at the University of Southern California. And just for recreation, she sang in the Girls Glee Club.

Jean’s exceptional life of friendship and concern for others will long be remembered by all who knew her. A memorial service will be held at the Glendale Ward on Saturday, August 20th. A viewing will begin there at 10:00 AM, and the meeting in her memory will begin at 11:00. Following the services, her interment will be held at the Glendale Cemetery.

Jean’s family expresses appreciation for the care and planning of Mosdell Mortuary, assuring a quality farewell so richly deserved by their beautiful mother.
