Ina Wright Tyler
1928 - 2016
Ina passed away on December 21, 2016 in Salt Lake City at the age of 88. Born in Las Vegas, Nevada December 17, 1928 to John Peter Wright and Eloise Schofield Wright. She was a rancher’s daughter and the product of a loving industrious mother. Her life was influenced greatly by the Depression and WWII. She learned to make do and use it up. Her family had food during the lean times, which was better than most. She played clarinet in the Pahranagat Valley Marching Band and was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
In 1946, she entered LDS Business College where she met and married Richard H. “Tim” Tyler who became her husband and life partner for 58 years. They were sealed in 1958 in the Salt Lake Temple. Tim and Ina worked hard, starting with very little. Love of family, providing for family and cheerleading their family was what Tim and Ina were all about. What a good Mom!
Ina always loved and found joy in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Ina held many church callings, serving others, in Relief Society and Primary. She strived to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ina was an accomplished quilt maker, producing hundreds of quilts. In retirement Tim and Ina moved from Salt Lake City to St. George, Utah. This was their home from 1974 to 2002. Both loved golf and were both good at it. Ina was the first president of the Bloomington Women’s Golf Association.
She will be remembered and cherished by her family and friends as an outstanding mother and role model to many friends.
