Cumorah Holdaway Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Cumorah Holdaway.
Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.
This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.
Robert Holdaway passed away this Sunday evening at the age of 91. Roughly, twelve hours later, he was followed by his sweetheart in life and in death Cumorah Holdaway, also the age of 91.
Robert and Cumorah were a pair in a small group that had the original idea for incorporating the Town of Vineyard. Robert served on the first Town Council.
Cumorah attended every Town Council meeting, for years, helping shape the community. Cumorah loved it. Their son Keith Holdaway and son-in-law Nathan Riley served in the city, welcoming in the city we know today.
Cumorah and Robert envisioned the future of Vineyard. Robert would tell his grandchildren. “Vineyard grows amazing crops, but someday, Vineyard will grow a more important crop, families”
Robert and Cumorah grew their family and taught them a deep love for Vineyard, and instilled a desire to serve. Their children and children’s children have continued to serve and make Vineyard into a rich inclusive beautiful city.
I’ve had the pleasure of working hand-in-hand with these good people, as they have dedicated their time to enriching Vineyard. It’s been an honor. Robert and Cumorah have lived on the corner of Holdaway Road for over 70 years, and have touched each part of our community.
Our city will miss them dearly. Vineyard city is lowering their flags to honor their combined service to the city, and their legacy of service and love to our community.
These two passed away within 12 hours of each other after being married for an incredible 73 years. Robert and Cumorah Holdaway, the heart of Vineyard, Utah and forever in the hearts of the SCERA Family as one of our most beloved patrons and friends. We will miss you both! Their funeral service is being held at the Shell tomorrow, a place where they went on many, many dates. Our thoughts are with their family as they mourn, but also as they celebrate the life of a couple who couldn’t stand to be apart for even one day. ❤❤

I was a newlywed when I was introduced to Robert and Cumorah Holdaway. They had met the first day of seventh grade and were married in 1949. Cumorah told me they had never spent a single night apart. They were devoted to each other and worked on a successful farm in a little community near Provo, Utah. Cumorah said she could never imagine life without Robert. I saw them from time to time, and they were always together. I read Robert’s obituary online today and thought that Cumorah must be devastated. As I read further, however, I realized she had died two days after he did. So, for more than 70 years, they only spent two days apart before being buried this weekend. Not everyone has a marriage this sweet and enduring, but I’m glad they did. God bless them.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as family statement on the death is yet to be released.
