Hilda Holyoak Grimshaw, age 94, passed away February 3, 2015, at her home, due to complications from a stroke and old age. She was surrounded by many of her loving family members. She was born in Parowan, UT, on June 9, 1920, to Thomas Knott and Margaret Alice Robinson Holyoak, their seventh and last child. She was a hard worker in her youth and played sports in high school (she loved basketball) and was on the debate team. After graduation she continued her studies at BAC (later SUU) and BYU, earning a degree in Elementary Education. She married John Henry Grimshaw on November 7, 1941 in the St George LDS Temple, and lived the rest of her life in Enoch, UT, where she was a pillar of the community. Together they raised nine children. They were also involved in the Indian Placement program, taking several children into their home over the years. Hilda was born with a lot of ambition and energy and lived a life of service. She taught dozens of 4H clubs, which included her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many other community children. Hilda sewed and made clothing for herself and children when they were young. She made quilts for her children and each grandchild when they married. She raised a large garden every summer. Some of her specialties were sweet corn and raspberries. She always had a row of peas for anyone to pick and eat raw. She started painting in 1963 with Glen Anderson as her teacher and continued until age 90. She put paintings in the Iron County Fair every year and also worked as a volunteer all those years in the art section. She loved cooking and canned and preserved food from her garden and fruit from Dixie. She was known for her homemade root beer, tea parties, gingerbread houses, dipped chocolates and the dozens of wedding cakes she decorated. She ground wheat and made bread until age 90. It was said that Henry was part gypsy, as he loved to travel. They bought a motor home and traveled in all of the 48 continental states, Canada and Mexico. They also traveled in Europe, including Turkey. Henry passed away in 1997. Hilda held many church positions and served four LDS missions with her husband, including serving in the Washington DC and Atlanta temples. She also worked in the St George Temple. Her survivors include her children: Lynn (Jim) Clark, Ann (Preston) Hughes, Vern (Janice Robb) Grimshaw, Jay (Lyn Leonard) Grimshaw, Doug (Chris Hafen), Dorothy (Ray) Orton, Gay (Jim) Sorensen, Earl and Roger, thirty-nine grandchildren and 137 great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, brothers Vern, Roland, John and sisters Alice Barton, Emma Mortensen and Beth Clark. We are thankful for the help Mother received from all her caregivers, especially JoAnn Gifford, who was with her so much for the past year and a half, and also Hilda Richards and Faelynn Kartchner.
