Ada was born on July 9, 1933, to Raleigh Otho Perkins and Emma Meeks at Park City. At a young age Ada’s father died in a mining accident and her mother married Bill Sexton, who was a great stepfather to her. Ada had 3 sisters Francis, Carla, who preceded her in death, and her youngest sister Belva who lives in Orem. She graduated from Park City High school. On Aug. 15, 1955, she married Billie Mair and moved to Heber City. They lived in Heber City for about 6 years and then moved to Midway, where they ran Mair’s Garage for many years. Before marrying Billie, Ada had 2 children from a previous marriage a daughter Brenda who passed away as an infant, and a son Billy who Bill adopted after he married Ada. Terry and Larry completed their family. On Jan. 5, 1999, they were sealed in the Provo Temple.
Ada loved dolls. She was a fantastic knitter she could knit up a storm, her knitting was flawless, and looked like machine work. To help pay for her hobby of collecting dolls she opened a little shop by her home where she would knit and crochet doll clothes for people to buy. She would always make something to enter into the Wasatch County Fair and would win a blue ribbon every time, sometimes she would win the grand champion. The last 4 years Ada has been in the Rocky Mountain Care Center, where she has made a lot of new friends. She was really excited to move into the new facility, but was not able to make that move.
Ada was preceded in death by her parents. Her husband Bill and son Billy. She is survived by her son Terry (Kena), Larry (Mel), Cyndi (Billy’s wife) and 6 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
The viewing will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the Midway Fox Den Ward, 250 East 200 South in Midway. The funeral will follow at noon. Interment will follow the services at the Midway Cemetery.
The family would like to thank the staff of Rocky Mountain Care for the care and friendship they offered their mother.
