Norma Raylean Munson’s grand entrance into the world began on February 19, 1943. She graced the lives of her parents Albert and Dorothy Hydeman as she grew into a beautiful young woman who wanted to join the FBI. Sadly, this performance would never come to pass, and she decided to take on a more fulfilling role as a mother to her four children – Jim, Kim, Tiffany, and Parker. This determined heroine also became a dedicated schoolteacher who would touch the lives of many students, especially those who took her drama classes.
As the family matriarch, parties, talent shows, and bug parades were just a few of the performances arranged by this gifted director. As a Sunday school teacher, temple worker, and Relief Society teacher, she endeared the people around her with her caring disposition. Alas – this true performer shall be missed. Encore Raylean Munson!
Raylean’s last act in this mortal existence ended on November 4, 2022 in Gilbert, Arizona. As a mother, sister, wife, drama teacher, and friend, Raylean lived a life full of adventure.
Raylean is survived by her siblings – Nancy, Albert, and Susan; her 4 children and their spouses, 16 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, and her beloved dog, Molly.
