SHARE Obituary: Aldean Burnham Spackman Bown

Our beloved "Nana" peacefully left this life on Friday, September 21, 2001 at the age of 103, to walk with the Angels. She died with family at her bedside.

She was born June 23, 1898 in Richmond, Utah to James Lewis and Amy Penrose Burnham. She was the ninth of 12 children. She married Thomas Spackman, June 6, 1912 in the Logan Temple. They later divorced. She married J.L. Casey Bown, January 16, 1939 in Randolph, Utah.

Nana was a wonderful Mother and friend to all. She shared her love and knowledge of the outdoors, especially, her love of Vivian Park, and "the Pines" at Flaming Gorge.

She was an accomplished seamstress. She made appliqued quilts, handwork, and needlepoint. She was a marvelous cook, and "The hostess with the mostest". Nana was an avid reader and enjoyed a variety of books, and the morning paper. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was a true lady in every sense of the word. Our visits to "Nana's Coffee Shop" will be greatly missed.

Nana was preceded in death by her husband, son Paul Spackman, and a son-in-law, Dr. Weston D. Brown. She is survived by her sister Velda Bennett of Ogden; son Thomas Dean (Dorothy) Spackman; daughter Linda S. Brown of Wenatchee, WA; 11 grandchildren; 32 great-grandchildren; 23 great-great grandchildren; and daughter-in-law Audrey S. Olsen.
