Longtime Tooele resident Francine Morley Liddiard, 96, passed away peacefully on May 22, 2019. Francine, whom many called “Fran,” was born on September 26, 1922, in Moroni, Utah, to Myra Minerva Cloward and Allen Amasa Morley, Jr. She was the youngest of five children. Francine graduated from Moroni High School in 1940. After graduation, she worked as a clerk and then bookkeeper at the Moroni Co-op. In 1946 Francine married George Elden Liddiard (“Lid”), a World War II veteran from Nephi, Utah. After the marriage, the couple lived in Nephi until the outbreak of the Korean War. When Lid’s Utah National Guard unit was called up, the family moved to Texas and then Oklahoma for training, until the unit was sent overseas. Francine and George moved to Tooele in 1953, where she supported George through electronics school and his founding of Al & Lid Radio & TV, which later became Al & Lid Furniture & Appliance. Later, Francine worked as the store’s accountant for many years. Fran had a smile and a kind word for everyone and was well loved by many for her sweet disposition and sense of humor. She loved reading, traveling, and talking about her kids and grandchildren. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Francine was preceded in death by her husband, George, her parents, brother Allen, and sisters, Bardella, Pearl, and Hannah. She is survived by her five children: Allen (Sid), Stansbury Park; Bruce (Cyndi), Durango, CO; Evan (Tabitha), Stafford, VA; Kent (Terri), Grantsville; and Sheila, of Tooele, who has selflessly served as her mother’s primary caregiver for the past four years. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, one great-great grandchild and her beloved cat, Wally. She will be greatly missed and forever loved. The family would like to give a special thanks to Carol Ellingsworth, who lovingly provided care and comfort to Francine for the past 4 ½ years. Funeral services will be held Friday, May 31, at 11 a.m. in the Tooele 13th Ward Church, 1025 Southwest Drive, Tooele, with visitation prior to the services from 9:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. favorite_border Donations Pledges
