_____________________________________________________________________

LeArta A. Moulton passed away from health complications on August 27, 2020, encircled by her loving family. She was born in Murray, Utah, on September 19, 1930, to Clara and Arthur W. Andersen. She loved and cherished her relationship with her fourteen brothers and sisters.

LeArta has always radiated energy and pursued education and faith. She attended BYU and received a bachelor’s degree in special education, specializing in speech pathology. In 1951, LeArta served a mission in London, England, as one of only a few sisters in her mission. LeArta developed a testimony of Jesus Christ and His gospel early in life, and she nourished her faith carefully through consistent scripture study and love. Heaven was near whenever she shared her testimony.

Although many suitors sought her attention, LeArta chose her husband wisely. One afternoon, she was in her front yard with curlers in her hair, rushing to mow the lawn before going on a date. A young man named Clark Moulton noticed her situation as he was passing by and offered to help. Clark mowed the rest of the lawn while LeArta went out with another boy. And on May 25, 1962, Clark and LeArta were married in the Salt Lake Temple. Their marriage emulated the kindness and service that brought them together on LeArta’s front lawn so many years ago. LeArta and Clark loved their four wonderful children—Lauri (Larry) Cunningham, Stan (Alicia) Moulton, Nina (Terral) Cochran, and Brad (Bree) Moulton. She was overjoyed to have grandchildren join the family, and is survived by 15 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

LeArta always encouraged her family to work hard, and she took her own advice: while raising her kids, LeArta also educated herself in health and wellness and published several books, including Nature’s Medicine Chest, The Herb Walk and The Amazing Wheat Book. She was passionate about using her knowledge to help others live healthy lives. Many people claim she saved their lives!

LeArta was adventurous. She loved zip-lining, snow-skiing, water-skiing and swimming. For her 80th birthday she went paragliding off the Tetons. She loved carrot juice, green drinks, popcorn with zip, comfrey, feverfew and yarrow. She put cayenne pepper in just about everything.

LeArta served in many capacities within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her favorite calling was spending time with the Young Women, especially at girls’ camp. As a couple, LeArta and Clark served a full-time mission in Pierre, South Dakota, where they used their unique talents to serve and love others. They also served in the Provo Temple, the Bishop’s Storehouse, and Welfare Services. Because of their testimonies and work ethic, their missions were successful and rewarding.

When people met LeArta, they were embraced by her kind spirit, her love of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and her love and commitment to her family. LeArta’s life was spent in the service of God and in the service of others, and she has left a legacy of love, dedication, and energy. LeArta lived graciously, laughed eagerly, and loved wholeheartedly. She was kind and cheerful, even in her last hours. LeArta will be profoundly missed by all who knew her, and she will undoubtedly go on to bless many more lives.

We are deeply grateful to those who served and loved our mother in her last years, including her wonderful friends and neighbors, Aspen Senior Center, and the caring staff at Highland Glen.

A graveside celebration of LeArta’s life will be held on Friday, September 4, at 11am at the Provo City Cemetery (located at 610 S. State St., Provo). The service will be streamed online and recorded for future viewing. If you choose to attend the service, please observe safety guidelines, practice social distancing, and wear a mask.

Your mom was so great. She was always smiling and made me feel comfortable hanging out in your home. She was easy to talk to, too. The world is a poorer place without her. Very sorry for your loss. --Eric White

To the family of LeArta Moulton we send our love and condolences on her passing. We count Clark and LeArta among our dearest friends and neighbors.

Aunt Learta is one who I have admired in my life. She always spoke to others with concern, love and geunine interest in them. I loved Aunt Learta's smile and her enenrgy. I remember at a family reunion in Heber, Utah she was showing us all up in zip-lining. I also remember when I was younger she would make sure all the cousins had fun activites to do while we were together. I have met many people who know her because of her knowlege in herbs and helping people become healthier, I always feel so proud to say she is my Aunt. I know she has left a great legacy here on earth. I see many qualties of her in her children and grandchildren that she has influenced. I love her so much and all of you! I am so happy that we can be forever families.

A few of my fondest memories of aunt LeArta were her love for plants. I recall when they moved out of the train house over to their other home that she took me on a personal herb walk. Her beautiful smile will forever be a memory. Last, I loved her resilience, she was like grandma always going, cooking, cleaning or entertaining. So long for a short moment, until we meet again! Love you dearly!! Jan Catmull Leyba
