Maurine Cluff

04/27/1917 - 01/18/2013

Lillis Maurine Reeder Cluff, 95, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 18, 2013, in Queen Creek, AZ, where she had resided for 71 years. Maurine was born in Brigham City, Utah, on April 27, 1917, to Daniel Seth and Lillias Eva Hadley Reeder. Our lovely mother was educated in Utah, graduating from the University of Utah with a major in Spanish and minor in French. Prior to her marriage to Ivan LeRoy Cluff of Chandler, AZ, she taught school in Ogden, Utah, and when married they moved to Arizona. Ivan farmed the Queen Creek area for many years and Maurine taught school in Queen Creek. She had the wonderful opportunity to teach young people, their children, and then their grandchildren English, Spanish and Home Economics skills. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, having served in the Spanish American Mission and numerous church callings, including the 10th Relief Society President of the Chandler Ward. She was admired and was a stalwart in the community with her knowledge of the history of Queen Creek. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Ivan Cluff, and more recently by her brother Darrell Reeder and grandson, Eric Kimball Lines. Survivors include her sons Gerald (Joan), Kenneth (Sharon), Leon (Angie), and daughter Marjean (Ted) Lines. Her posterity includes many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Funeral services for Maurine will be held on Saturday, January 26th, at 10:30am in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel located at 19413 S. Sossaman Rd., Queen Creek, AZ. Prior to the services a viewing will be held from 9am to 10:15am. Interment will be at the City of Mesa Cemetery, 1212 N. Center Street, Mesa, AZ. Mother was so loved and we look forward to the time when we will be together again
