ROY, UT -<! >

Our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Elizabeth Hannah Hansen Hoellein, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 20, 2001 of causes incident to age. She was 80 years old.

She was born on July 23, 1921 in Ogden, to John P. and Mary Nielsen Hansen. She was one of eight children, the youngest of those that lived.

She married William George Hoellein on September 15, 1944 in Ogden. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. He passed away March 15, 1965. They were the proud parents of five sons. As a family they enjoyed outings in the great outdoors, fishing and hunting. Beth resided in Ogden most of her life, graduating from Ogden High and then went on to become a registered nurse, receiving her education at St. Anns in Salt Lake City.

While raising her five sons, she was employed at the Dee Hospital, St. Benedict's Hospital, Boeing, and at Hill Air Force Base in the dispensary, until she retired. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served as an Ogden Temple worker and enjoyed her service as a trainer.

Beth loved having her family and friends around her - always very interested in what they were doing. Her hobbies included knitting, crocheting, genealogy, family history, poetry, reading and especially the scriptures. She had a beautiful rose garden that she spent hours cultivating. She enjoyed traveling and visiting areas of the United States and Europe.
