1937 ~ 2004

Ruth Elaine Youngberg Breinholt, 67, died May 1, 2004 at her home in Taylorsville, Utah of natural causes.

She was born February 16, 1937 in Salt Lake City to Edwin Albert and Sigrid Sund Youngberg. She married her high school sweetheart Gordon L. Breinholt on March 18, 1955 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

She graduated from Granite High School in 1955. While attending school there she was selected as Miss Joyce Jantzen. She was an active member of the LDS Church and enjoyed many church callings. She served as a lunch lady at Plymouth Elementary, and also worked at Mervyn's where she made many friends. Mom was a friend to everyone she met. She always took the time to care for others whether it was a phone call or a card in the mail. She loved spending time with the family, especially her grandkids! She enjoyed crocheting and collecting snowmen and thimbles. She made beautiful family history albums and is famous for making the best potato salad in town! Our mother is an angel to us everyday and we will hold her in our hearts forever.

Although she will be greatly missed, we know that she is now re-united with her eternal companion and sweetheart.

She is survived by her children: Ronald and Jill, Taylorsville; Duane (Jolene), Bluffdale; Kent (Susan), West Jordan; Jon, Midvale; Becky (Marc), Henderson, NV; eight special grandchildren: Ashlee, Cole, Jenny, Julie, Spencer, Megan, Nicolas and Kyle; brother, Ray (Pat), Salem, OR; sisters: Neoma (Cecil), Carmichael, CA; and Julie (Claude), Holladay.
