Marilyn Olsen Taylor was born into this world on May 27, 1928 in Franklin Idaho in the humble home of Frank Olsen and Ann Powell Olsen. Marilyn had two younger siblings, Sherman Olsen and Deann Beckstead. As an inquisitive and energetic child, Marilyn enjoyed growing up on the family farm. Her parents were of modest means such that her childhood home did not have running water and was heated by a coal-fired stove and cast-iron fireplace. Ann placed warm rocks in Marilyn’s blankets to keep her feet warm at night. Marilyn was treated to a bucket-dipped bath on Fridays. Marilyn worked on the farm and routinely arose in the early morning to pick blueberries, beans and corn. Occasionally she would pick rhubarb and eat it with baking soda, which would cause white foam to cover her face.After completing all of her primary education in Franklin, Marilyn enrolled at Utah State in 1946. Marilyn was actively engaged in college, participating in leadership positions in the Institute of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Because of her natural beauty, sweet spirt and kind demeanor, she was selected to be the Homecoming Queen. She earned her way through college by working as a waitress at the Blue Bird Café on Main Street in Logan. She lived economically with her father’s sister, Rhoda Dopp. She majored in Home Economics, graduating with honors. Marilyn served as a Home Economics student teacher in Hyrum, Utah where she later obtained her first teaching position.Marilyn married her college sweetheart, Keith Elmer Taylor in 1950 in the Logan Temple, and in 1951 they moved to Sunnyvale, California. Marilyn taught Home Economics in Cupertino, California for three years to pay their living expenses while Keith attended Standford Law School. Kim Taylor was born while they were in California.In 1954, Marilyn and Keith moved to Salt Lake City, Utah and lived in a quaint home in Sugarhouse, where Clark Keith Taylor (Colleen) was born. In 1960, Marilyn and Keith moved to Bountiful, Utah, where Greg Franklin Taylor (Belen) and Jane Ann Taylor (n/k/a Akira) were born. Marilyn and Keith divorced in 1977. Marilyn then relocated in Bountiful where she finished raising her family. Marilyn earned a Master’s Degree and Doctorate in Curriculum Development and Dramatic Arts, and later a certificate in Special Education, all from the University of Utah. Over the years Marilyn taught in number of schools in the Davis County School District. Marilyn’s students adored her as she positively contributed to their lives.After her educational career, Marilyn purchased apartments and became the caretaker of the units. Marilyn’s tenants appreciated her kindness as she took a special interest in each of them.Marilyn was a faithful and active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout her life. She diligently served in countless Church callings over the years. She particularly enjoyed decorating the chapel with beautiful flower arrangements. For almost two decades, Marilyn enthusiastically volunteered at the Church’s headquarters as a tour guide at the Church Office Building, the Lion House and the Beehive House. Marilyn was a refined woman. She was well-mannered and polite, and courteous to all. She carried herself with grace and dignity.Marilyn adored her grandchildren, and they reciprocated by surrounding her with tender affection. The grandkids spent countless hours playing at grandma’s house. They loved sleepovers and woke up early to enjoy a delicious short stack of grandma’s special-recipe chocolate chip pancakes smothered in genuine maple syrup. She affectionately made her home a carefree refuge for the grandchildren where each of them enjoyed unconditional love and support as they matured from young children into young adults.Most important, Marilyn was a kind loving mother who dedicated her life to her children. She will throughout the eternities reap the rich and plentiful blessings that naturally flow from faithfully discharging her duties and responsibilities as a heavenly mother. Mom, we will dearly miss you as we travel on life’s journey, and will be forever grateful for all that you have taught us and done for us.

James Reed Maughan
Aug 10, 2023 - Feb 15, 2024
James Reed Maughan passed away to be with his loving Heavenly Father on February 15, 2024, due to an unexpected cardiac event. James was born healthy and happy on August 10, 2023. His family instantly fell in love with his big eyes and huge smile, and he brought them so much joy and love. He was a sweet happy little boy and he filled his home with a special spirit. His mommy and daddy called him “budgkins” and “little budge”. James loved listening to music. He would stare into his mommy’s eyes as she sang him Primary songs, and if he ever was fussy, sitting at the piano with his daddy to play music and sing would instantly make him happy. James was an observer who loved to sit on the couch with his mommy and his grandma and turn his head back and forth as he watched his big sister and his dog run and play. He thought his big sister was the coolest thing ever, and happily sat through many “checkups” while she played doctor. He loved being his sister’s car buddy and would never cry or fall asleep during family car rides. James was born with a cleft lip, and due to that, he had the widest and goofiest smile that made everyone around him happy. James went through a lot in his short life, including nasal-alveolar molding to prepare for cleft surgery, lip and nose surgery in December of 2023, and a hospital stay when he contracted RSV in January of 2024. James never stopped being a happy baby through these hard times. He was smiling and laughing the day after both of his hospital stays. James is the son of Cody and Emily Maughan, and the little brother of Annie Maughan. His maternal grandparents are Reed and Susan Chandler. His living paternal grandparents are Chris and Bridget Strama, and Alan and Kim Maughan. He is now with his late grandmother Jane Maughan, his loving Heavenly Father, and his Savior Jesus Christ. James leaves behind a legacy of faith, and his parents look forward to the day when they can be reunited with him as an eternal family.

Jan 27, 1927 - Jan 24, 2024
Helene Kramer, 96, of Bountiful, UT, passed away on January 24, 2024 of natural causes. Helene was born on January 27th, 1927 to Hermann and Helene Daleske in Germany. Her mom, dad and Helene joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints while in Germany and when she met her husband Karl he decided to also join the church. Karl and Helene were married in July, 1949. They all immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1952 and then moved to Salt Lake City in 1959. Shortly thereafter they adopted their son Michael in January of 1961; upon her passing Helene had 6 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. Helene has dedicated her life to working within the church volunteering to sell eggs for the welfare program and later worked in the Salt Lake and Bountiful Temples for over 30 years. When she could no longer attend the temple she worked in the genealogy area extracting names written in Old German. Her and Karl served a mission in the Frankfurt Germany Temple mission where Karl passed away while working in the temple. She served a second mission going back to the Frankfurt Germany Temple making lasting friendships including Silvana who is from Brazil. Helene sponsored Silvana to move here, put her through school to get certified as a nurse, and Silvana ended up living with Helene for more than 20 years. Helene was a missionary from the day she heard the Gospel message sharing her beliefs to everyone and anyone who would listen. Her testimony of us all being God's children resonated in her interactions with everyone she came in contact with including her renters. She was always known as the "cheap" landlord and was more interested in the well-being of those living in her properties then in how much rent she could charge. Her love for animals was legendary...from taking care of 10+ cats or feeding the birds and deer, to having 4 hummingbird feeders on her porch...I'm sure she was warmly greeted by them when she entered Heaven. She was a wonderful grandma who loved and supported her grandchildren until she passed. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Helene was predeceased by her sister Marta, her parents and her husband. She is survived by Mike and his wife Shaz as well as all of their children and grandchildren. She has always loved Shaz as a daughter…she never felt that she lost a son but gained a precious daughter. The family requests that all flowers and notes are sent to Memorial Mortuaries and Cemeteries on Redwood Road. There will be a funeral service on Monday January 29th at 2PM and interment at 4PM at Memorial Mortuaries and Cemeteries, 6500 South Redwood Road, West Jordan, UT.
