Afton was born in Delta, Utah, to Charles and Rilda (Norton) Durfee on May 25, 1926, as the youngest of their seven children. She died Jan. 14, 2019.

She was a devout and passionate member of the LDS church. She loved nothing more than her family and caring for everyone around her whether it was through prayer, service or homemade goodies. Those who knew her especially remember the popcorn balls that she handed out during the holidays.

Most may remember her during her days as a visiting teacher with her sister Eva, as they were two peas in a pod. Afton also spent a time as a greeter in the Relief Society at the church, where she blessed many with her warm welcoming hugs and smile. Her children and grandchildren will forever hold the memory of the amazing stories that she shared with them, especially the pioneer stories passed down by her mother.

Afton and Lloyd lived in Lovell for more than 50 years, raising all their children here.

She spent her last years in her home in the care of her granddaughter Tonya with the help of her other granddaughters Renee and Chereece as well as sons Terry and Tim (Debbee) and daughter Cindy.

She was preceded in death by husband Lloyd, daughter Rilda and son Terry.

She is survived by children Debbie, Leroy (Kris), Pamela (Patrick), Tim (Debbee), Cindy (Mike) and Ronda as well as 13 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.
