Obituary: Beatrice Irene Barrows


Beatrice Irene Barrows passed away from this earth on March 1st , 2003, in Salt Lake City, due to congestive heart failure.

Beatrice was born July 12, 1912 in Llanddarog, Carmarthenshire Wales, the first born daughter of David J. and Elizabeth Howells Maddocks. She grew up in Salt Lake City on the family owned church farm dairy, which was one of the pioneers of bottled milk delivery in Salt Lake City. Some of her memories while growing up were of helping prepare meals for many of the hired workers. After attending Granite High School she graduated from Stevens Henager College. On September 18, 1937 she married Robert D. Barrows at St. Paul Episcopal Church in Salt Lake City. She and her husband settled in Salt Lake where they continued to live and raise their three children. Some of the family's fondest memories were that of the many summer days spent at the cabin in Brighton, Utah.

After the untimely death of her husband she enjoyed working as a secretary for Homer Hansen Furniture for many years.

Beatrice loved spending time in her garden, growing beautiful vegetables and her favorite roses. In her spare time she created many beautiful crocheted items for her family. One of her most treasured experiences was being able to travel and return to visit her homeland of Wales.

She is survived by two daughters Juniata Prentice of Salt Lake City and Beverly (Tracy) Aiken of Ferron Utah, one sister Marjorie Pyper of Laverkin Utah, 10 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Robert D. Barrows, her son Robert G. Barrows, her parents and four brothers.
