Anderson, Marian  
1929 ~ 2016 "Telephone Pioneer" Marian Anderson, 86, passed away April 26, 2016 in Salt Lake City. Born Nov. 13, 1929 in Magna, Utah to Andrew Marion and Alice May Rolfe Anderson, she was the sixth of seven children; two sisters died during childhood, leaving Afton, Betty, Edna, Marian and little brother Bob. The family moved from Magna to South Salt Lake during the Great Depression, where they lived until construction of Interstate 80 took their home and the family moved to Green Street. Marian retired after a career with the phone company and was an active member of the Telephone Pioneers until her recent health decline. Marian was a gentle soul loved by everyone, who could make anyone smile. Marian never married, choosing to stay beside her sister Edna in caring for their parents, and after their passing, she and her sister had a bond between them and a special partnership for the rest of their lives. They had a rich life together, were devoted to their family and friends, and had an exceptional love for all children. They made and donated quilts and stuffed animals for children in hospitals and for police and fire departments to provide to families. Marian and Edna found time to travel the country and the world, and Marian loved making scrapbooks of their escapades. Marian is preceded in death by her parents and all her siblings. She is survived by three nieces; two nephews; brother-in-law Philip A. Lavorgna; and sister-in-law Barbara Anderson. A special thanks to Millcreek Home Health Services and to the Beehive Home at East Millcreek for all their care, and especially to Esther for her devotion to Marian. In lieu of flowers, donate to a children's charity or help a child in need. A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 from 6pm to 8pm at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, SLC, UT. Please use the complimentary valet parking provided on the north side of the building.

Bowden, Madelyn Leappes - Salt Lake City  
1924 ~ 2016 Beloved Madelyn Leappes Bowden passed away April 26, 2016 surrounded by her loving family. Madelyn was born on May 26, 1924 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Greek immigrant parents George Leappes and Mary Kazikou Leappes. She was the oldest of seven children raised in the heart of Salt Lake City. She was adored by her parents and in turn, she admired and appreciated them for their courage to immigrate to America and the sacrifices they made for their family. Madelyn set a wonderful example for her sisters and enjoyed a loving and unique relationship with each. Her youngest sister Susie held a special place in her heart and her only brother Andrew brought great joy to her life. She often recalled the days when she and her five little sisters, wearing matching homemade dresses, would run down the street to greet their father, returning from a long day's work. She remembered the fun summer days spent in Magna with her Aunt Fani and Uncle Achilles, selling the penny candy in their bakery. Madelyn met James Bowden at a church party and they began dating. They were married on July 15, 1945 in the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church. They were a striking couple who shared a deep love and commitment for 56 years until Jim's passing in 2001. They were blessed with four loving daughters: Helen, Mary, Barbara and Joanne. Their love for them was unwavering. They loved and embraced the sons-in-law who came into their lives, and adored the grandchildren and great-grandchildren who now share wonderful memories of the Yiayia and Papou. Madelyn was a graduate of West High School, Class of 1942. Shortly thereafter, she was employed at EIMAC, where many young women assembled radio components for the ongoing war. Years later, she began a career in the accounting department at Mountain Bell, retiring in 1986 with over twenty years of service. A proud and faithful member of the Greek Orthodox Church, Madelyn generously volunteered her time and served on the Parish Council. She served as president of The Ladies' Philoptochos Society, Daughters of Penelope, Hellenic Women's Club, and was a member of the Arcadian Ladies. She greatly admired her first cousin, His Beatitude Ieronymos II, the current Archbishop of Athens and All Greece. While raising her own children, Madelyn showed her true compassionate nature by helping her widowed sister Helen operate Con's and Jim's Cafe. Madelyn was a gracious woman filled with compassion, enthusiasm and humor. She truly loved people, loved to dance, laugh and share stories. Madelyn possessed a wit and charm that made her the life of any party. She created a home filled with warmth and it was open to all. She loved her many dear friends, luncheons with the Golden Girls, and her Best Avenue neighbors. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family, who will always remember the love she brought to their lives. She was loved and will be greatly missed. Madelyn is survived by her children; Helen (Andy) Giannis, Mary Bowden, Barbara Pavlinch and Joanne (Jerry) Rizzo. Grandchildren: Kim (George) Adondakis, Melene (Harry) Klentos, Rachel Rizzo and Emily Rizzo. Great-grandchildren: Sam Adondakis, Andy Adondakis, Maria Klentos and Eleni Klentos. Sister Angie (Nicholas, deceased) Zambos and brother Andrew Leappes, along with many dear nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by her parents, husband, and siblings: Kaye (James) Lee, Helen (Constantine) Chlepas, Connie (Constantine) Andros and Susie Leappes. Funeral Services will be held at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 279 South 300 West at 11:00 a.m. on May 3, 2016. Friends may also gather at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary, 3401 South Highland Drive, on May 2, 2016 from 6:00pm to 8:00 p.m. with a prayer service at 7:00 p.m. Interment at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park.
