Helen Rogers Redd, age 97, returned to her heavenly home on Sunday morning, November 1, 2015 at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She lived a full, exemplary life that we would all do well to follow!
She was born June 29, 1918 to John D and Luella H Rogers in Blanding Utah. She lived there until she moved to Paradox Colorado with her husband, Kermit M. Redd. They were married on December 15, 1939 in the Manti Temple. She often said the best decision she ever made was to marry Dad. They shared 52 years together raising their family of 6 children, working and serving in the Paradox Branch. Mom's faith and determination were what got the church organized and going in that little spot of Colorado.
Mom was a good business woman and owned and operated a small grocery store, post office and gas station (1 pump) for 30 years. She served and helped that small community often lending credit to those in need (knowing it most likely would not ever be paid) and always supplying Christmas for anyone in need, whether it be groceries or winter coats. She was loved and admired by all who knew her.
After Dad passed away in 1991, Mom moved to Springville and lived close to Virginia. One of Mom's greatest desires was to be able to stay in her own home, and Virginia's care made that possible. Mom worked in the hospital gift shop, volunteered at the Art Museum and attended the temple every week with her dear Springville friends. She was happy and contented and continued to give generously of her time and talents to neighbors, friends and most of all her family. She was a real sports fan and watched many games on TV and attended games of her grandchildren and great grandchildren as long as she could. Baseball was her favorite and she was keeping track of the world series up through Saturday night. She was grateful for these last 25 years and how she was able to gain a deeper knowledge of the gospel and the Savior.
Mom was affectionately known as Granny Great or sometimes just Great by 25 grand children and 57 great grand children. She was preceded in death by her husband Kermit, sons, John (Kathy) and Lem (Lila). She is survived by son, Ken (Kelly) and daughters, Suzie Redd, Virginia Johnston (Biff) and Liz Childs (Bruce).
A viewing will be held November 3rd from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Wheeler Mortuary in Mapleton, 82 W 400 N. Funeral Services will be Wednesday, November 4th at 1:00 p.m. at the LDS Chapel, 1400 E. 900 S. Springville with viewing one hour prior to the service. Interment will be in Paradox, CO.
