1925 - 2014
Providence - Sarah Beth Van Zeben passed away peacefully on May 28, 2014, at her home.
She was born on Sept. 16, 1925, in Cardston, Alberta, Canada, the first child of Seren Melvin Olsen and Gladys Sarah Wright. While serving an LDS mission to Holland from 1947-1949, Beth met Gerard B Van Zeben. Later, in Utah, Beth and Gerard Van Zeben began dating in Salt Lake City. They were married in San Francisco on April 7, 1951, and later they were sealed in the Oakland Temple on Oct. 16, 1971.
Beth grew up on a small farm on the plains of Alberta and had little. After Gerard was released from the military in 1954 they settled in San Mateo, California, and raised four children. They later moved to Midvale, Utah, and as their children left home, they moved to Providence, Utah.
In Providence, Beth would serve three more missions with her husband for the LDS Church.
Beth is survived by her brother Glen Melvin Olsen and her four children, Melvin, David, Becky and Juli.
She was preceded in death by her sisters Leita May and Marva June, her mother and father and her husband, Gerard B Van Zeben.
Beth was very proud of her ancestors who came across the plains by handcart and in wagons and loved the gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
