Obituary: Beulah M. Thompson

1/09/1917 ~ 3/18/2003

Our beloved "Gran" went home to the Lord, Tuesday March 18, 2003, after an extended illness. She was preceded in death by her husband, David F. Thompson and son Douglas A. Thompson.

Gran was born in Elliott County, Kentucky on January 9, 1917, daughter of David and Bessie Mae Gilliam Conley and was one of 15 children. She attended the Sandy Hook Consolidated School. After moving to Salt Lake City in 1948, Beulah spent a lot of her time in quilting, flower arranging, and a local Garden Club. She was a charter member of the First Baptist Church of Kearns and served her church in several different ways during her 45+ years with them; the most recent being her volunteer work in the Food Pantry, supplying food to needy families.

She is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Hershel Lee and Luella Thompson of West Jordan, Utah; two daughters and one son-in law, Cathryn Eckhardt of Detroit, Michigan; and Susie & Michael Pair of Sandy Utah; nine grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews, and several great-nieces and great-nephews. Her son, Douglas Allen Thompson, died June 5, 1992.

Funeral services will be held Friday March 21, 2003, at 11:00 a.m. at Valley View Funeral Home, 4335 West 4100 South, West Valley City, UT, where friends may call Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. prior to the services. Interment: Valley View Memorial Park.
