Brigham City, UT

Faye Ellgen, 91, residing at The Gables Assisted Living Memory Care in Brigham City, Utah, passed away peacefully in the early evening of February 21, 2024. Faye was the oldest of two daughters born to Doey Elbert Seldomridge and Minnie Evelyn Blake on June 28, 1932, in Craig, Colorado. Faye and her sister, Kay, enjoyed life in the small town of Craig. She loved living in the three different homes her father built near their elementary school where they spent many hours at play. Her other interests were going to movies, caring for her family pets, participating in high school government, and square dancing. She worked at several jobs: “soda jerk,” the movie theater, and later at JCPenney. In high school, she was invited by her friend to attend the local branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where she and Philip first met. While they were dating they enjoyed dancing, horseback riding, and airplane rides in Philip’s private plane – which sealed the deal. Faye made the decision to join the Church. Philip baptized her and they were later married on June 1, 1950, in the Manti Utah Temple. Faye's legacy of love and dedication lives on in her daughters, Jo Ann (Clair) Vernon, Jean (Robert) Willmore, Janice Ellgen, and Jill (Robert) Kinney, her 15 grandchildren and 34 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her loving parents, Doey and Minnie Seldomridge; her dear sister Velma Kay Vroman; her son, Richard (1974); and her devoted husband of 71 years, Philip Ellgen (2022). Faye kept busy raising her children, serving in the Church, and working. She was dedicated to maintaining their home and teaching their daughters sewing and cooking skills through the 4-H program. She was a Boy Scout leader while her son was in scouting. Her devotion to her faith was evident in her service in Relief Society, Mutual, Primary, and singing in the Ward Choir. She also worked for six years in the Ogden Temple with her beloved husband. Her membership in the Church brought her great joy and comfort in the knowledge that families are forever, making genealogy an important priority in her life. Some of her hobbies were baking bread, crafting, participating in a quilting group, crocheting, knitting, sewing, and letter writing – never wasting any space on a card or piece of paper. She loved family history projects, especially one that included composing a song for an Ellgen family reunion. She made every Christmas magical with stockings and thoughtful gifts. While raising her family, Faye also worked in a variety of jobs including retouching portraits for Perry Studios in Grand Junction, selling Fuller Brush in Vernal, working in the cafeteria at Logan Junior High School, and in the office at The Sunshine Terrace Nursing Home while getting her Associates Degree at Utah State University. Faye's life was a beautiful testament to the power of love, the value of hard work, and the joy of giving service to family, friends, and neighbors while living in Colorado (Gunnison, Glenwood Springs, Paonia, and Maybell) and Utah (Vernal, Logan, Roosevelt, Perry, and Brigham City). The family would like to express love and appreciation to the Staff of the Gables Assisted Living and Aegis Hospice for the attentive and loving care of Faye. In lieu of flowers, the family suggest donations be made to Humanitarian Fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Humanitarian Services c/o LDS Philanthropies 1450 N.

Brigham City, UT

Don was born on 07/19/35 to Velma and Charles Criswell. The Lord called him home on 02/17/24. Don loved the Lord, his family, friends, neighbors and pets. He especially had a soft spot for dogs and was seldom without one. He loved people in general and never met a stranger who remained a stranger for long. He had a quick, ready smile and a gentle wit, but he never spent his humor at the expense of another. An avid golfer, he also enjoyed camping and fishing. A family cabin in the Uintas became his favorite go to place. Other pastimes included archery and gardening. Music stirred him. He was good at strumming a guitar and had a pleasant singing voice. A skilled craftsman, Don worked construction, but for the most part was a carpenter by trade and much of his life this is how he made his living. He could build or fix just about anything, and eventually became an instructor who taught building and apartment maintenance for several years before retiring. A Christian, his faith saw him through the storms of life. His ministry was loving and caring for others. He was a good provider, always giving so that others might have. He had no problem opening his wallet to those who needed a hand up. Many winters found him shoveling or blowing snow from neighbors’ sidewalks and driveways. Summers he helped with yard work. His garden and fruit tree harvest was shared with family, friends and neighbors, as was his gift for building and repairing things. Along the way, he shared his faith with those who were willing to listen. Love does that. It sparks a longing to be with those who have come into our lives and into our hearts not only in the moment, but in the hereafter as well. And so he shared. He shared that when he would someday be away from the body, he would be at home with the Lord (2 Cor 5:8), present with the Lord he loves, present in God’s Kingdom. He would be truly home. He shared that faith in the Biblical Christ is the only key that opens heaven’s door. Through faith Don’s entered in. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Deb Criswell, children, Birch (Vanessa Holmes) Criswell, Cami (Kris Berg) Criswell, Matthew (Kristyna) Criswell, Jennifer (Tracy) Cullens, Jamie (Dennis) Garcia, brother, Darwin (Jean) McPhie, 13 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, extended family members, friends and neighbors. He will also be missed by our special needs border collie who we thought we were blessing when we adopted her. But, she became a blessing we could never have imagined. Don was proceeded in death by four brothers, two sisters and a great granddaughter. The family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Zachary Campbell and staff, and the IHC Hospice team who so meticulously and tenderly cared not only for Don, but for his loves ones.

Their union was blessed with three children and nine grandchildren. Her Sundays were devoted to family dinners, watching her grandchildren play sports, and her vacations were always an adventure waiting to happen. Nancy was a woman of many talents, sewing Christmas pajama pants was one of her favorites, but there was nothing she cherished more than the company of her family and friends.

Ruby Ann Harper

Jul 11, 1927 - Feb 08, 2024

location-icon

Brigham City, UT

Ruby Harper, our beloved mother, closed her eyes for the last time on Thursday, February 8th, 2024. She was a woman of remarkable accomplishments, passions, and endearing characteristics. Her yard, meticulously maintained and filled with vibrant beauty, was her sanctuary-a place that took away all worries and pains. Mom would say, “A beautiful yard is a gift of beauty for neighbors or passersby to enjoy.” She generously shared the gift of nature’s beauty with others.” In her own words, Ruby recounted the journey of her life. She wrote: “I was born in Malta Bend, Missouri on July 11, 1927, at my grandmother’s house to my parent’s Mary and Garland Webb. I lived there until our family moved to Jefferson City, Missouri when I was just a baby. My father worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad. He was transferred to Ogden, Utah when I was a senior in high school. The move was extra hard for me. At my school in Missouri, I was very involved with cheerleading, secretary of my 10th grade class, and drum majorette. I won several jitter bug dance contests. I finished my senior year and graduated from Ogden High in 1945. After graduation I worked at Mirror Lake Lodge for the summer then accepted an office job at the Southern Pacific Railroad. In 1947 I was introduced to Trae Harper. We were married on March 17, 1948. Trae owned Harper Meat Packing Co. in Brigham City where we settled and raised our three children. I worked and kept books there for 18 years. After selling the Meat Packing Co. I worked for American Sportswear for two years then retired from Intermountain Indian School after working there for 15 years. It wasn’t long after retirement I decided I was bored, and I was hired as a cook in the school lunch program at Lakeview Elementary. I met so many wonderful friends there and to this day I cherish them all. My final retirement was from that job at the age of 71. I enjoyed and loved doing so many things, decorating my home, yard work, taking care of my little garden, sewing, and canning with my daughter. I loved knitting baby blankets, slippers, dishcloths and piecing together many quilts for my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends. I was an avid Jazz fan. I got so much enjoyment watching my grandchildren and great-grandchildren excel in their sports and dance. I was very fortunate to travel and visit many countries with my sister Bonnie, her daughter Denise, son Dennis and his wife Frankie. I was blessed to have enjoyed many camping trips and cruises with my children and their families. I was very fortunate to take many trips with my son, Rod in his Semi and was able to see much of the country. I enjoyed many visits from my son Curt and his family. Our days were filled with going to Pioneer Park for picnics and feeding the ducks. We would drive around Brigham City for hours while I listened to him tell me all the history of our pioneers. My daughter, Becky taught me to love shopping and to appreciate all the boutiques. I just couldn’t wait for Swiss Days every year. I was always included in all their family parties and celebrations. I loved riding my little red scooter, walking all over Brigham City, riding my bicycle and going to water aerobics.” Despite facing adversity, such as the loss of her arm in an accident at the meat packing plant in 1953 at the age of 25, Ruby’s determination and spirit remained unbroken. When she made up her mind, little could stop her or stand in her way. Within six months she was knitting again, showcasing her remarkable resilience. You knew you were truly someone special when she gifted you a beautiful pair of hand-knitted house slippers or a dish cloth. It was rare not to be presented with a loaf of her homemade banana bread as a token of her gratitude. Mom’s independence was admirable. She held firm to her desire not to burden others and rarely asked for help unless absolutely necessary. Her self-reliance was both a source of pride and occasional frustration for those closest to her. Mom was a member of the Presbyterian Church. She held the position of a Deacon until her health failed her and she could no longer serve. She had many friends from her church and treasured those friendships every day. Mom is survived by her two children: Becky (Ken) Simkins, Curt (JuLee) Harper, daughter-in-law Julie Harper. Fourteen grandchildren and 38 great-grandchildren. Two sisters: Bonnie Harper and Barbara Barrow as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Trae Harper, son Rodney Harper, grandson Rodney Trent Harper, sister Dixie Fowles, and step-grandson Darrin Simkins. We are so grateful for Mom’s example. She taught us all to be strong and that you can get through life's toughest struggles and trials. Our mom was someone who could take the place of all others but whose place no one else will ever take. We want to express immense gratitude for family, friends and neighbors who always stopped by for a visit. We want to express our love and appreciation to the Hospice Nurses and the aids. Mom loved them and they became like family. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. at Myers Mortuary, 205 South 100 East, Brigham City, Utah. A Viewing will be held prior to the service from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. at the mortuary. Interment will be at the Brigham City Cemetery. To to the family or in memory of Ruby Ann Harper, please
