BOUNTIFUL — For many, the idea of a stepmother brings to mind tales such as Cinderella, but Verlynn has shown enough love and support to earn the title of “Mom” from her stepdaughter Pam.
“She has this bubbly, outgoing, fun and happy personality,” Pam wrote when nominating Verlynn. “She is so kind and thoughtful of people she meets.”
Verlynn has also earned the title of “friend.”
“My mom is there for me and listens when I need a friend to talk to,” Pam wrote. “She is always willing to help and care for people in the community and with family and friends.”

“She inspires and motivates me to be a better person.”
