Our loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Mary Elizabeth Davis Bethers, age 88, passed away July 26, 2006, at the Heritage Park Care Center, Roy, Utah. Mary was born June 10, 1918, in Charleston, Utah, to Alexander M. and Carrie Winterton Davis. She married Harris W. Bethers on Aug. 13, 1936, in Provo.
