Marilyn Couton Christensen, 63, our beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother, friend and choice handmaiden of the Lord, returned to her Heavenly Father December 7, 1996, while surrounded by her family.

She was born January 1, 1933, in Salt Lake City to Stephen and Viola Foulger Couton. She graduated from West High School in 1951. Marilyn married Charles R. "Dick" Christensen, September 19, 1958, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. She worked at Mountain Bell and was a crossing guard for the last 13 years.

She was an active member of the LDS Church and held many positions. She especially enjoyed working with the youth. She was a very selfless and loving person and gave of her time freely. She had many Christ-like qualities and touched the lives of those who knew her.

She is survived by her loving companion of 38 years; her four daughters and 11 grandchildren, Carla (Bryan) Wright and children Brett, Chris, Shauna and twins Wesley and Brady; Lana (Lon) Tibbitts and children Nikki and Natalie; Robyn (Craig) Stelter and children Cameron, Andrew and Preston; Charlynn Stevenson (Shan Lassig) and her son Andre; two sisters, Donna (Roy) Marshall and Beth (Willis) Proctor.

She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers.

The family wishes to thank all those who lovingly cared for Marilyn this past month, with a special thanks to Dr. Terry Box.
