Marilyn Hacking Beesley--Love You The Most
Marilyn Sue Hacking Beesley passed away Sunday morning, January 22, 2006 after a yearlong battle with bile duct cancer.
She was born May 29, 1948 in Vernal, Utah to Grant and Mildred Hacking. She was the fifth of six children, including three sisters and two brothers.
Growing up on a farm, she was taught the value of hard work while having fun. She studied at Utah State University and earned a teaching degree in physical education. She taught middle school in California and Utah until she married. In 1975 she met the man she would ask to marry her, Bill Beesley, III. They were married August 19, 1976 in the Salt Lake Temple. She was very active in the LDS church, serving in many positions. However, her most fulfilling position was being a wife and mother to her loving husband and five beautiful children. For 29 years, she and Bill raised their children and taught them the skills and values that would help them to be happy and successful in their lives. Marilyn was an incredible event planner and organizer. She was a talented quilter, seamstress and gardener. She enjoyed compiling her family history and picture books. Her greatest ambitions that weren't realized were to see the marriages of her children, serve an LDS mission with her husband, help raise her grandchildren and grow old with her family. Marilyn lived a life dedicated to making others happy, and was very successful in doing so. She laughed and made others laugh. She will be missed as a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She will always be loved the most.
Marilyn is survived by her husband, Bill Beesley, III, her children William (Heather) Beesley, Susannah (Michael) Slade, Zane, Mariah and Rebecca Beesley. Marilyn is preceded in death by her mother, Mildred Hacking, and her sister, Sandra Ely.
