Emma Grace Callantine

September 25, 1922 - November 2, 2014

Emma Grace Callantine, 92 of Ogden Utah, peacefully left our presence on November 2, 2014, surrounded by family and friends. Emma Grace was born September 25, 1922, to loving parents Edward and Minnie Meakins in Linn County, Iowa. She was married for many years to the love of her life Walter R. Callantine.

Emma Grace was quite the jokester, even nicknaming herself the “Goofy Grandma.” She loved sewing, knitting and doing needle point. She prided herself for the elaborate Christmas socks she made for her family and friends, many of which she donated to charity.

She volunteered over 30 years at St. Benedict’s Hospital. She was a Lady of Elks and Daughter of the Niles.

Emma Grace was an avid sports fan who loved following her son’s and grandson’s sporting events.

They family would like to thank her special friend Gwen Dezember for the love and concern she always showed over the years. Also, to her “Target” friends that she met every Tuesday and Friday for a Coke.

Emma Grace is survived by her children Dave (Nancy) Callantine and Ed (Jerri) Callantine, four grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, and eight brothers and sisters.

A Private Graveside Service will be held for family members at a later date, at Leavitt’s Aultorest Memorial Park 836-36th St. Ogden, Utah.

Arrangements under the direction of Leavitt’s Mortuary.

Emma Grace was such a sweet lady. I grew up around the corner from where she lived, and she was friends with my grandma. When my grandma passed away in 1997, Emma Grace became a serogate grandma to me. She always made popcorn balls and would come by our house for visits with the family.. I haven't seen her in a few years, but i would often think of her. She will be truly missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during difficult times. At 1 Corinthians 15:26 we are promised that very soon now, 'death will be brought to nothing'. Then, we have the prospect of being reunited with our loved ones right here on earth (John 5:28,29). I truly hope this brings you some comfort and hope. Sincerely, Gwen.
