Lora Dawn Stock
Lora Dawn Davis Stock, 76, passed away on October 30, 2022, in Panguitch, Utah. She was born in Panguitch on June 25, 1946, to Clarence LaVerl and Dorothy Smith Davis. Lora Dawn was the second of Verl and Dorothy’s three children. Dawn’s mother Dorothy used to tell her that Dawn was born on the family’s kitchen table due to the hospital not being built yet.
When she was young, her family would frequently go on Sunday drives to Panguitch Lake or have Easter picnics at Red Canyon. Dawn graduated from Panguitch High School in 1964. After high school, she moved to Cedar City, Salt Lake City, and eventually back to Panguitch.
Dawn married the love of her life, Gerald Stock, on December 6, 1976, and the two spent 44 wonderful years together. The two were sealed for all time and eternity in the Cedar City Temple on February 24, 2022. Gerald preceded her in death on February 20, 2021.
Throughout the years, Dawn worked many jobs including the Panguitch Sewing Factory, Kaibab Industries, Bryce Canyon Pines, Bryce Valley Inn, Avon, and most recently as the Cannonville Post Office Postmaster. She was also active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Dawn held positions as a Laurels teacher, a visiting teacher, and a compassionate leader in the Relief Society. Most recently, she served as the cleaner of the Cannonville Ward.
Dawn will be remembered as an angel on Earth. She was generous, mild-mannered, and kind-hearted. She left an impression on all who knew her, and she will be deeply missed. When you think of Dawn, you can’t help but think of her love for butterflies and cats. She and Gerald both had a great love for children. Over the years, the couple opened their home and hearts to many foster children. Dawn was always cooking, baking, and hosting family gatherings. The family cherished the outdoors and loved to attend the deer hunt each year.
Dawn is survived by her daughter, Kathy Ann (John) Julander, Panguitch; her son, Alan Gerald (Kirsten) Stock, Cannonville; brother, Clarence Albert Davis, Cedar City; brothers-in-law: Marty Stock and Jeff Stock; her sisters-in-law: Jeannie Davis, Iris Burr, and Nora Wagner; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.
In addition to her devoted husband Gerald, she is also preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Dell Roy Davis; her brothers-in-law Arnell Burr and James Wagner; her sister-in-law, Gail Spencer Stock; and her niece, Toni Stock Anderson.
