Mary Ellen Chapple Beckstrom, 80, of Spanish Fork, died surrounded by her loving family on Friday, October 24, 2008 at the Mountain View Hospital in Payson of a Stroke.

She was born November 7, 1927 of goodly parents, Joseph Chapple Jr. and Lilly Ann Loy Chapple. She learned the value of hard work at an early age, growing up during the depression with six brothers and five sisters. She carried this work ethic with her throughout her life. She attended schools in Spanish Fork and at Utah Technical College in Provo, Utah (now UVU). She married Paul H. Beckstrom on January 20, 1946, and they were later sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. To this union were born seven children (three sets of twins). She was an excellent homemaker, and a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be dearly missed by all. She enjoyed her callings in the LDS Church, especially in the Young Women Presidency, Relief Society Presidency, Sunday School and Cub Scouts.

She is survived by her husband of nearly 63 years, Paul H. Beckstrom, children: Jan B. Spagnolo; Jeffrey (Camille) Beckstrom; and daughter-in-law; Irene Beckstrom Moore and her husband Bob Moore; ten grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren, with two more on the way; and two sisters; Merle Curtis and Janet (Kirk) Jameson. She was preceded in death by her son Gary Paul Beckstrom and twins Pauline and Paulette Beckstrom, and twins Mary and Terry Beckstrom; six brothers and four sisters.

Funeral Services will be held on Monday October 27, 2008 at 11 a.m. in the Spanish Fork First Ward Chapel, 300 East Center Street, Spanish Fork, Utah.
