Zielke, Glena - Salt Lake City  
1924 ~ 2014 Glena Paulsen Zielke left this earth and returned with honor for a glorious reunion on November 24, 2014, just a few months after her 90th birthday. She was a beautiful and classy lady and an eternal optimist whose mantra was, "Life is good... and it gets better every day". She shared her cheery disposition with all and we always walked a little taller after spending time with her. Glena was born on April 12, 1924 in Orangeville, UT. She was the oldest of six children born to Glen Ferril and Ardis Julia Paulsen. She was raised in Ephraim, UT, and married Earl Carlyle Stansfield on November 27, 1940. They eventually settled in Midvale, UT to raise their four children. Following a divorce, she met and married the love of her life, Paul Fredrick Zielke on September 2, 1955. They soon moved to Coloma, MI where they had two more children. There Glena became mother to a large blended family of seven children adding Paul's son from his previous marriage. After raising their children, Glena and Paul moved back to Midvale, UT so she could be close to her family; in particular, her beloved sister Elaine. A woman of many talents, Glena was a great cook who ran a well-organized home. Even when the family struggled early on to get by, Glena ensured there was always plenty of food for the many guests who would come by for Sunday dinner. Music was also her talent and passion and it filled her home. She conducted the singing at church and she sang like an angel. A marvelous teacher, perhaps her greatest lesson was that she loved unconditionally and lived to serve others. Among her favorite church callings was being a Temple Worker at the LDS Jordan River Temple and a tour guide at Temple Square. Undoubtedly, Glena's greatest joy was her large family which includes 144 children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and their spouses - all of whom count themselves blessed to be hers. Glena is survived by her seven children: Julia Hogan (Dennis), Marilyn Walldorf (Ted), Steven Stansfield (Joanne), John Zielke (Karen), Colonel Randell Stansfield (Kenra), David Zielke (Cindy), and Anne Edwards. Funeral services will be at 1:00 pm, Saturday, November 29, 2014 at Millcreek 9th Ward, 420 East 4200 South. The viewing will held at 11:30 to 12:45 prior to the funeral. The entombment will be at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park where she will be laid to rest next to her beloved husband.

Labrum, Bobbie Anne - South Jordan  
1925 ~ 2014 On November 21, 2014, the world lost, and heaven gained, a noble and elite lady. Bobbie Anne Labrum gifts an enduring legacy, closing this chapter of life with 89 years of cherished memories for family and friends. She entered life October 1, 1925, to loving parents Rudolph and Myrtle Nowotny. She married D'On Ivo Hansen enjoying 32 years together and 5 children. Life's challenges separated their paths, and she was then blessed to spend 22 years with loving husband, Miles C. Labrum who preceded her in death. Her greatest treasure in life was her family. She made each believe we were her favorite. Children, Mark, Joy (Kevin), Jiaunna, Janie (Paul) and Darla (Don); 30 grandchildren and 42 great-grandchildren; and a loving brother and three sisters. We knew each kind word and expression of love was heart felt. She loved beautiful clothes with frills and jewelry. She strongly preferred and always recommended long hair on girls and women. Daintily hoping not to offend a recent haircut, she would say, "Don't worry dear, it will grow back." The last few years she blessed her daughters' lives by living in their homes. She cherished being with her children, grandchildren, and playing puzzles and Play-Doh with great grandchildren. Her gratitude, empathy and charity are Christ-like qualities experienced by friends, family and even people she had just met. She could talk you into sharing life's struggles and life's triumphs and she genuinely cared. In life, she served family, church and neighbors. She had a testimony of and loved her Savior, Jesus Christ, and her Heavenly parents. In death, she was gracious, appreciative, and concerned about those she leaves behind. As she opens a new chapter in life's book, we know she will be our cheerleader and will comfort us when we need her. We celebrate your life today, our Mom and Nana. Viewing will be Tuesday, November 25, 2014 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and Wednesday, November 26, 2014 from 10:30-11:45 am prior to the funeral at 1200 pm at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley, 1007 W. South Jordan Pkwy. Interment at Wasatch Lawn, 3401 South Highland Drive. Online Condolences and information for Webcast of Services at www.jenkins-soffe.com
