Obituary - SALT LAKE CITY - Our loving mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother, Lillie Roma Beckstead Hymas, passed away peacefully at her home in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Saturday, Jan. 2. We know she is having a wonderful reunion with her beloved husband, Don Robert Hymas, who passed away just over a year ago.
She was born Dec. 25, 1923, to Elmer Gordon and Lillie Velda Winger Beckstead in Preston, Idaho. She and her husband, Don, were married for time and all eternity in the Logan Utah LDS Temple on June 1, 1945.
She is survived by her six children, Shawna (Larry), Kent, Randy (Carolyn), Cathy (Bill), Kristine (Edward) and Richard (Kelly); a brother, Gordon Beckstead; and sister, Ethel Parry; as well as 25 grandchildren and 40 great grandchildren.
Her greatest joy was being with her family and building eternal bonds with them. Her children will cherish the many memories of a mother who devoted her life to her husband and the rearing of her children. She found great joy in playing the violin and enjoyed all types of music and theater. She had a great love of reading and was active in book clubs for many years. She was talented in quilt making and other types of sewing and found joy in sharing her creations with others.
She was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many positions of leadership. She loved serving others and gave freely of her time and energy in sharing her deep testimony and knowledge of the gospel with others. She served in the Boise Idaho Temple, along with her husband, for several years and found great joy in that service. She was active in the community in American Legion and other civic organizations.
Her family will long remember the example she has set for us that true joy is found in a life of service and devotion to those things you hold close to your heart. We love you and will miss you, Mom!
The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 7, at the LDS Church on Elizabeth Boulevard. A visitation for family and friends will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 6, at White Mortuary "Chapel by the Park," and also one hour prior to the service Thursday at the church. Interment will follow the service at the Twin Falls Cemetery.
