PRICE- On Sat., Jan. 6, 2007 at 12:30 p.m. our sweet mom and grandmother, Sylvia Brazier LeMaster Clerico, 92 years old, passed into God's hands in the silence of winter, leaving this earthly life to go to a better place.
She was born to Joseph Ray Brazier, her father and Daisy Malone Brazier, her mother, in Drumright, Okla; the middle child with one older brother Roy, deceased, and one younger sister Daisy Inez, also deceased.
Mom was married in a grain elevator in Texas to Ralph LeMaster, a marriage that lasted 31 wonderful years until Dad passed away in 1967. Their love for each other was shared with Granny Brazier and her two adopted daughters Patricia Ann and Suzette Marie. Years later, after we were raised, Mother married Pete Clerico, May 26, 1973, who became endearingly known as "Grandpa Pete" to all of us. He later died July 6, 1983 with Mother by his side.
Her guidance, love, and religious beliefs were exemplified to everyone she knew while working all those years at J.C. Pennys, participating in Eastern Stars and attending the Baptist Church. It was at that little church in Price where we kids grew up; where through her example, we received her heartfelt gift of faith and love. Mom was a member of that church more than 40 years, always sitting in the fifth pew back on the left-hand side, loyal to the end. To all of us, she was both ends of the rainbow, an inspiration to us all, and the kindest person you would ever have the pleasure to know.
Mom is survived by her two daughters Suzette Marie Williams, (husband Orvil, deceased) of Wellington, Patricia Ann Dalpiaz and husband Paul of St. George. Her grandchildren are Le Williams, (deceased), Patrick of Tacoma, Ralph of Helper, Malinda Dunnam of Taos, New Mexico; Jeane Alfaro of Wellington and Jessica Daisy Dalpiaz of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Family will be at the church Wednesday one hour prior to service. Interment in the Price City Cemetery. Funeral arrangements under the direction of Mitchell Funeral Home of Price.
