Helen E. Brown
Our loving mother, grand & great-grandmother and friend joined her family in Heaven Oct 22, 2010 after a short illness.
Helen was born Aug 23, 1923 in Richfield, Utah, to William Eugene and Verlie Roena Hatch Brown. She was one of eight children.
She married Dwayne Christensen on Oct 21, 1942 in the Manti Temple. She married Hal Bjorkman on November 28, 1962 in Provo, UT. They both preceded her in death. She was known for her hospitality, sense of humor, and beautiful needle work. She loved to sing, dance, the changing colors of the mountains, the simple things in life. Most of all she loved her large family and her Heavenly Father. In spite of all the adversity in her life she always remained full of love and grace and never fell to temptation.
She is survived by her children: Rita (James) Blanton, Dee Ann (Carl) Speed, Leslie Joseph, Nancy (Carlos) Madrid, Robert (Candi) Bjorkman, Steve (Karen) Bjorkman, Libby Richards, Becky (Andy) Bradbury, Johnny Bjork and Matthew Bjorkman; 51 grandchildren, 66 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
She is also preceded in death by her parents, siblings, four children, two grandchildren and two sons-in-law.
The family wishes to thank the staff at the Rocky Mountain Care Home for the wonderful loving care they gave Helen the last five years.
In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to Rocky Mountain Care Foundation 350 East 300 South Ste 100 Bountiful, UT 84010, or the Huntsman Cancer Center.
