On October 23, 2023 after 91 years, Fawn Enid Underwood Fife passed away with her daughter and son by her side. She was an irreplaceable wife, mother, friend and relative to many.

She was born August 20, 1932 in Mammoth, Utah to Ken and Virginia Vanausdal Underwood. She lived there until the age of 12 at which time the family moved around the hill to Eureka to be closer to schools and work. She loved those early years in Mammoth and had many memories and stories to share. She enjoyed her school years in Eureka but as was the custom in those years, she married early on June 5, 1948 to Robert Fife and in the coming years had her family. She lived in the same house for 74 years.

She was the main cheerleader and supporter of all sports and activities that her children participated in. She was proud of her achievement of going back to school to receive her graduation certificate. She enjoyed time spent participating in the Ladies of Elks of Eureka, card clubs and winters in Quartzsite, Arizona.

She was raised with four brothers and two sisters. Another sister died at the age of 3. The seven together were a very close-knit family. They spent their entire lives caring for and loving each other as families should, supporting and standing by whenever needed.

She was preceded in death by her husband Bob, parents Ken and Virginia Underwood, an older brother Vance, younger brothers John, Adren and Jim, younger sisters Carol and Tamara, and sisters-in-law Bonnie and Pat. Tragically she also had to endure the loss of her oldest son Cliff.  She is survived by a son Carl (Pam), a daughter Joy (Bill), and daughters-in-law Kerry and Pam L.

She leaves behind a friend in anyone she met. She had many in her life.

Graveside services were held Friday, October 27, 2023 at 11:00 am at the Eureka City Cemetery.
