Helen Robb Abplanalp
DUCHESNE - Our Dear Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, and Friend, Helen Robb Abplanalp, 86, passed away on August 12, 2011 at the Evergreen Assisted Living Center where she had resided for the past 4 years.
Helen was born on March 27, 1925 in Park City, Utah, to Theron Robb and Norma Smith Robb and was the oldest child of six brothers and two sisters. The family lived in Park City until Helen was twelve at which time they moved to the ranching community of Utahn on the Duchesne River. Helen graduated from Duchesne High School in 1943 and was active in many activities but loved playing the cornet in the pep band.
Helen married the love of her life, Thomas J. Abplanalp on May 14, 1945 when he was home on leave from World War II service. They were inseparable for 49 years until his passing in August 1994. Together they raised four children. They lived in Tabiona, Provo, Cedar City, and finally returned to their last home of Duchesne in 1962 where they finished raising their family.
Mom loved spending time with her family and many friends. There were many happy moments shared together with her husband, parents, brothers, 5 sisters, children, grandchildren, neighbors, and friends. A lot of these fond memories were spent on the family farm in Utahn as the location where we would all gather. Mom also loved to travel and spent many trips with family until her health prevented her from going as often as she wanted. She will be missed greatly.
Helen is survived by her children, Sandra (Jerry) Taylor of Sandy, Utah; Jeffrey (Jerri Kay) of Casper, Wyo.; Kevin (Bobbi) of Duchesne, Utah; Grandsons; 2 Great-Granddaughters that she loved dearly. She was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas J.; son, Tommie; her parents; 2 infant brothers, Carl and Lyle; and her dear sister, Lois Smith.
The family would like to offer its gratitude and thanks to all of Mom's friends and neighbors for looking in on her all of these years. A special thanks to Evergreen and its staff for the unconditional love and kindness they have shown to Mom and our family in these last years of her life.
Funeral services were held Aug. 12, 2011 at Goff Mortuary, 8090 S. State St., Midvale, Utah. Interment followed at the Utahn Cemetery.
