Centerville, UT – Cleo Louvon Stone, 84, a devoted and loving mother, grandmother, and friend passed away August 17, 2022, in Centerville, Utah.
She was born on April 2, 1938, in The Dalles, Oregon, to Milo E. Rawley and Leona Meffords, and spent most of her early years in the Springfield, Oregon, area. Cleo attended many schools, both in Oregon and California, as the family moved frequently with her father’s job. She finally landed in Colton, California, where she graduated from Colton High School in 1956.
Cleo was a single mother who worked tirelessly her entire life to support her family, with most of those years in the banking industry. She started her career in Sacramento, California, and when she decided to move to Utah in 1973, she found an immediate home at Zions Bank. She enjoyed a fulfilling 31 years at the bank, working in many areas including teller training, branch operations, and accounting. She loved working for the bank and enjoyed the colleagues and many friendships she made through the years – it truly was her second family.
She was also a woman with many talents – first and foremost as a seamstress and quilter extraordinaire. Her home was always filled with her newest creations as she loved to celebrate each season and holiday with special flare. If you frequented local fabric stores, you probably bumped into Cleo. Always one to have the latest kitchen gadget or tech product, she loved sharing new ideas, recipes and the latest innovations with her family and friends. She was an avid Jazz fan and loved spending her spare time watching any tennis tournament she could find on TV. She will be greatly missed!
Cleo is survived by her son Scott (Nicole) Bountiful, Utah; her grandchildren Audrey Stone and Connor Stone; her dear friend Sue Harkness; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Charles K. Rawley.
