Notes:  Manon Hawley was born 20 Nov 1915 in Oasis, Millard, Utah.  She was the youngest of nine children of Sims Matheny Hawley and Arizona (Zona) Church.  In the 1920 U.S. census, Manon was living with her family on Eagle Street in Eureka, Juab, Utah.  The family was renting their residence, and her father Sims was a farmer, farming on his own farm.  The children at home were Armond B., 12, Melvin J., 7, Eldon B., 7, and Maron, 3.  The oldest three attended school.

Manon's father Sims died in 1927 as a result of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), known as Lou Gehrig's disease.  In the 1930 U.S. census, Manon was living with her family on State Road in Oasis, Millard, Utah.  Her mother Zona, now widowed, was the owner of the alfalfa farm.  The children at home were Melvin J., 18, Eldon B., 18, and Maron, 14, all attending school.

Manon attended Hinckley High School and went on to LDS Business College.  She worked for a cousin in Los Angeles, California.  She married Benjamin H. Robison on 8 Sep 1939 in the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah.

In the 1940 U.S. census, Manon and Benjamin were living in Hinckley, Millard, Utah.  They owned their house, valued at $4,000.  Manon was a deputy of some sort in the private sector, and her husband Benjamin was a case worker for the W.P.A.

Manon and Benjamin lived in Hinckley until Benjamin joined the U.S. Marines in 1945.  They now had two children, and Manon and the children joined him in San Diego, California for several months.  Upon their return they lived and farmed in Sutherland, Millard, Utah for 34 years, raising a total of five children.

Manon was active in the LDS Church, serving in several positions in the Relief Society and Young Women's.  She was busy as a farmer's wife, and crocheted over 100 afghans for family members.  She and her husband traveled, going around the world on several cruises.

In 1978, Manon and Benjamin were called to an LDS Mission in New Zealand, where they served as directors of the LDS Visitors Center in Hamilton.  Upon their return in 1971, they made their home in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah.  Here they served in the Jordan River LDS Temple.  In 1992 they moved to St. George, Washington, Utah, where they served in the St. George LDS Temple.

Manon's husband Benjamin died 29 May 1998 at their home in St. George, Washington, Utah.  She passed away on 11 Apr 2010 in St. George, at the age of 94.  Services were held in the Sutherland LDS Chapel on 17 Apr 2010.  She is buried with her husband in the Sutherland Cemetery, Sutherland, Millard, Utah.
