Standard-Examiner (Ogden, UT) - January 16, 2005 Deceased Name: Ellen W. Christensen BOTHWELL - Our beloved mother, Ellen W. Christensen was reunited with her husband and son. She went home with grace to our Savior on January 14, 2005 in Tremonton, Utah where she had been living at the Bear River Valley Care Center.
Ellen was born on March 25, 1917 in Thatcher, Utah to Mable Wheatley and William Watt.
Mom grew up in Thatcher, Utah where she met her eternal companion, Oscar Christensen. After a courtship of dancing and fun they were married in Bothwell and later sealed in the Logan LDS Temple.
They were blessed with three children and one surprise. Ellen became a hard worker at an early age caring for her younger siblings at age ten when her mother passed away. She continued throughout her life working hard assisting Oc with raising turkeys and chickens and continued to find joy in serving others.
She was known as a woman of strong character, values, personal ethics and integrity. She was compassionate, understanding and generous. She touched the lives of countless people for good and up to her final days filled the lives of others with her gracious manor.
She found the most joy playing in the dirt and raising beautiful flowers, which she shared with everybody. She was an excellent cook and shared her talent of cooking school lunch for many years developing lifelong friendships. She was affectionately called 'Grandma Great' and 'Grandma C' by her grandchildren. She will leave a lasting memory of sharing rolls, cookies and homemade chocolates.
Ellen was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with a strong testimony of the Gospel and shared her talents holding many callings.
She leaves behind many who loved her dearly: her one son, Gary (Connie) Christensen; two daughters, Mable (Ron) Kay and Kayla (Jim) Wayment; daughter-in-law, Valoy Jones; two brothers, Dee (Dorothy) Watt and Oleen (Evelyn) Watt; seven sisters, Ion Udy, Valene (Clair) Andreasen, Leah (Leon) McDonald, Delilah (Larry) Thatcher, Kathleen (Ron) Lemon, Alice (Ralph) Yearsley and Judy (Kenneth) Gilson.
She was preceded in death by her husband; her son, Deloy; two sisters and one brother.
We will celebrate her life Monday, January 17, 2005 at 11:00 a.m. at the Bothwell Ward Chapel located at 10350 West 11600 North, Bothwell.
