She financially supported Mormon Missionaries around the world for decades; she donated The City of Rocks to the U.S. Government, who made it a National Park. Upon her death in 2015, she left her 750-acre ranch in Idaho to the Mormon Church.

From reading your bio I would say that she was a Philanthropist but there is no evidence to support Notable.  You can add '[[Category: Philanthopists]]' above the '== Biography ==' line.

[[Category: United States, Philanthropists]] would be more appropriate.  

[[Category: Utah, Philanthropists]] would be better if it existed.  It could be created and linked to [[Category: United States, Philanthropists]]  and [[Category: Utah]]

A notable sticker usually accompanies a profile highlighted in Wikipedia.org. I did not see a profile. If it exists, please add a reference to it. She may be a notable but if the profile is not in Wikipedia.org, then please consider making an application for her which would include a substantial bio that would be included with the profile.

This Wikipedia standard is unacceotable. Anyone can post anything on Wikipedua, and their Moderators just don't care. To hell with the whole WikiTree Notables Project.
Wikipedia has standards for determining "notability," and articles can and do get deleted if the topic is determined to be non-notable.
Wikipedia's Moderators are morons who fully validated a rapper's article with only his own website as a reference, with a "song" which was simply a vulgar, misogynistic rant.

I've taken college classes that don't even accept Wikipedia articles as sources. I knew one Professor who spent months persuading Wikipedia's Miderators that Santana wasn't a Moslem.

Notability is very subjective, anyway, and hardly worth discussing. I'm sorry I brought it up, other than to say that having a Wikipedia article is an unacceptable standard for notability. Until this changes, the whole Notability Project on Wikitree is dead to me.
William, if you read the criteria as written (last I checked, anyway), Wikipedia isn't the ONLY one for determining notability.  It's just the one everyone uses when answering G2G questions.  There are other acceptable sources used as determinants, such as Dictionary of Biography.

Kenneth's and Stuart's suggestions (below) also have much merit.  Perhaps until sufficient information can be offered to satisfy regards notability, the Philanthropists category might suffice.
