Emma Beata (Bea) Killpack Shepard, 84, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away July 10, 2005 at her home in Tooele, Utah surrounded by her loving family, following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born January 4, 1921 in Ferron, Utah to Clive and Mary Iva Killpack, the first of nine children. She married Guy Russell Shepard, January 17, 1947, later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. Bea graduated from beauty school and owned and operated a beauty salon for over 40 years. She sold real estate for six years.

She served faithfully as a Relief Society President, MIA President, Sunday school teacher, visiting teacher and camp director. She and her husband Guy were Temple workers for 12 years, serving as a supervisor for several years. Her service was filled with love and charity. Her unconditional love extended even beyond her family and friends to include anyone in need of assistance or support. She was an active, supportive mother and grandmother. She encouraged her grandchildren's talents by attending their activities. She taught her family the gospel by example. Gardening, canning, hunting, fishing, cooking and making hand-made items for others were some of her greatest joys. She is survived by her son, Jonathan (Sandy) of Grantsville, Utah; daughters: Susan Shepard, Tooele; Anne (Steven) Pratt, Tooele; Beata (Jeff) Clifford, South Weber; 23 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, two brothers, three sisters and one grandchild, Blake Clifford.
