(Alice Jane Grant Berry)
AJ Berry, age 89, much loved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, returned to her Father in Heaven on December 30, after a long period of declining health.
She was born April 7, 1924 in Phoenix, Arizona to Glenn Davis and Elizabeth Barton Grant. The family moved to Los Angeles, Calif. in 1928 where AJ attended elementary school and graduated from Los Angeles High School in1942.
On March 27, 1945, AJ married C. Lee Berry in Los Angeles. They were sealed as a family in the Los Angeles LDS Temple in 1969. They lived in the Los Angeles South Bay area until shortly after their retirement in 1980, when they moved to Farmington.
She was an amazing example of love and kindness to all those around her. She was a beautiful person who truly embodied the unconditional love of her Savior. She was adored by her husband, her children and her grandchildren. Nothing was more important to her than her family. She will live in our hearts forever.
At the time of her death, AJ was survived by four of her children: Steven Louis Berry, Alison Berry Allman, Kristin Berry Durrans and Brian Grant Berry, 10 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. She was also survived by her sister, Liz Wissler. AJ was preceded in death by her husband, Lee; two infant daughters, Leslie Berry and Karen Berry; her son, Bruce Clifford Berry and her grandson, Connor Berry. AJ was also preceded in death by her parents and four siblings.
We would like to thank the wonderful nurses and staff at North Canyon Care Center in Bountiful who cared so lovingly for our Mom during the past few years.
