SHARE Death: Elwynn S. Hewlett

"Bishop" Hewlett passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Nov. 5, 1997. He had been residing in Orem with Edna, his wife of 68 years for the past 10 years.

Dad was born in Corinne, Utah, April 8, 1909 to David L. and Emily Smith Hewlett. He was raised in Corinne and Brigham City, graduating from Box Elder High School. He also resided in Southern Utah and San Luis Obispo, CA. He married Edna O. Sherwood on December 9, 1929; later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple.A devoted member of the LDS Church, he served two stake missions, was on the high council and served as bishop of the 4th Ward, Temple View Stake, Salt Lake City. Retiring from Welfare Square-his life's work was most gratifying. He served as storehouse manager, and literally "clothed the naked, fed the hungry and lifted up the hands that hung down." He had the true spirit of the Lord's welfare program and implemented it as the Savior would have it done. Thousands knew him as "Bishop Hewlett" who helped the poor. He was very proud of his six children and always encouraged them to meet together often. We'll never forget his special recipe of ribs and chicken wings, served at the annual 24th of July celebration in the backyard.

He is survived by his wife; three sons and three daughters, Elwynn Jr. (Mona), Alpine; Robert (Chip) and Ruth, Kaysville; James (Linda) Highland; daughters, Joan (Harold) Cramer, Apple Valley, CA; Karen (Charles) Woodman, Reno, NV; Kathryn (Fred) Thompson, Sandy; 35 grandchildren; and 53 great-grandchildren.

A viewing will be held Sunday, Nov. 9th from 6-8 p.m. at the Lake Hills Memorial Mortuary, 10055 South State, Sandy. Funeral services will be held Monday, at 11 a.m. at the Orem Lakeridge 10th Ward chapel, 450 South 100 West, Orem. Friends may call one hour prior to service.

Burial, Salt Lake City Cemetery.

Thanks and much love to Mom and the children who cared for Dad in his later years... which is as it should be.
