Heales, Mitch  
Mitch R Heales entered eternal life on Friday, May 15, 2015. His spirit is carried on by his wife of 23 years, Sharon, his Brothers Keat and Ronnie, sister-in-law Carol, his mother Jan as well as his extended family and a host of friends who were drawn to him by his charming, gentle & honest personality. His soul guided to heaven by his father Ron. Mitch was a man of few words most times, but could happily talk for hours telling tales of fishing or hunting trips with friends from years back. Mitch had a strength about him that commanded a certain respect. He had a strength of character, akin to legends like John Wayne or Gary Cooper. Mitch was distinctly American, from head to toe a red blooded, outdoor loving, and hardworking man always ready with a quick smile and his quiet chuckle. He was given the gift of life, fighting for it every step of the way, through childhood illness, accident and circumstance and has been called by heaven to give it back. Go in peace Mitch. With luck we will all meet up again on the other side.

Huebner, Renate Griese - Layton  
On Saturday morning, May 16, 2015, heaven gained the sweetest angel and earth lost the greatest mother, wife, Oma, friend and superdiva, while waiting for a lung transplant. Renate Griese Huebner was born on January 21, 1948 in Itzahoe, Germany to Karl-Heinz Griese and Mariechen Holst. She married Otto Gephart Huebner on November 22, 1968 and they were later sealed in the Bern, Switzerland temple. Renate had ten kids over 16 years while living in Germany. In 1988, she made the most selfless decision a person could ever make. She and her husband decided to leave behind their homeland, family, friends and only life they knew to immigrate to the United States and give her children more opportunities for their future. On October 4, 1988 our family, 9 of 10 children, stepped off the plane in Salt Lake City, Utah with nothing but the clothes on our backs and some German chocolate! Over the next few years she taught herself to speak English by watching Sesame Street with her children, and probably on her own. It didn't take long for her home to become a Safe Haven. Neighborhood kids, strangers, and all who came in contact with her never had to question whether they were loved, welcome, and NEVER had to worry about leaving hungry. Mom was the best cook and her "candy drawer" was infamous. After her children were grown, mom found her second family and indulged herself in the love she found working on West 8 at LDS Hospital. The tradition of potluck Sundays will never be the same without her famous Ambien creations. As her children, we thought her love for us was unmatched until her grandkids came along; then she stopped giving us candy! All that love and candy giving poured out to her 37 ½ grandkids. This trampoline jumping, swinging and hot tubbing "Oma" was not afraid to get down and dirty. Letting her hair down in order to make her grandkids laugh and feel like one of a kind was one of her many qualities. After being healthy all her life, she was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis in August of 2012, which didn't affect her passion for life but, sadly, limited her ability to travel. She loved to see the world with her partner in crime, Christel Reames, who we're sure welcomed her on the other side with suitcase in hand! Mom's testimony and faith of Jesus Christ and her devotion to the LDS faith were unwaivering. This was evident because the night before she died, one of her last concerns was that her tithing was paid in full. While she made her home a safe haven for others, her safe haven was the temple of the Lord. She is survived by her husband, Otto Huebner, and her ten children: Andrea Ziegner, Angela (Cameron) Tingey, Alexis Huebner, David (Gabi) Huebner, Nadine (Rodney) Washburn, Jennifer (Steve) Savage, Ben (Candace) Huebner Vanessa (Adam) Boyer, Sarah (Nate) Moon, Carri (Bret) Crowther, and her 38 grandkids and 4 great-grandkids. She is preceded in death by her mother Mariechen, Father Karl-Heinz, brother Volker, and sister. She is survived by the Huebner family and her brother Wolfgang (Regina) Griese, who love her dearly. We want to thank all the nurses and staff at LDS Hospital that fought for our mom and made her feel wanted as a patient. We'd like to especially thank Dr. Pearl and Dr. Scholand who went out of their way day in and day out to do all they could for our sweet mom. Deborah and Nate spent countless hours with our mother on and off the clock, making sure her passing was as peaceful as possible. You guys are considered family! If, after reading this, you're not already a donor, please consider registering to be one. If not, consider yourself warned because while sweet, our stubborn German mother will haunt you into persuasion. Rest now, Mama. Breathe deep the sweet air of paradise. You will be missed by countless people every second of every day. Bis aufs Wiedersehen. Wir haben Dich lieb. Funeral services will be held at 12 noon on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at the LDS Layton Valley View Stake Center, 1589 E. Gentile. Friends may visit with family on Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lindquist's Layton Mortuary, 1867 N. Fairfield Rd. and on Wednesday from 10:30 to 11:30 at the church. Interment, Lindquist's Memorial Park at Layton. In lieu of flowers, please bring GERMAN chocolate or candy to keep alive the legacy of her candy drawer and sustain her grandchildren through this difficult time . . . if her children decide to share. Condolences may be sent to the family at Lindquistmortuary.com

He and Frieda moved to Alaska in 1975 and both worked on the Alaska Pipeline Project for three years. This was the "Project" that Jerry was most proud to have been associated with and for years afterward referred to it as his and Frieda's project. They returned to Salt Lake City in 1979 continuing their respective careers in Project Management and Management Training. Jerry lost his soul mate Frieda to breast cancer in 1995 but he kept up the fight to find a cure until his own death. Jerry was very involved with the breast cancer education, research, treatment and lobbied law makers to help find a cure. Three things Jerry really enjoyed were returning to Alaska each summer to fish, joining the gang known as the "Oasis Group" for coffee and conversation, and travelling the world on cruise ships. He was an avid photographer taking pictures everywhere he went and liked to be in the pictures as often as possible. Jerry is survived by three siblings: brother Michael (Sondra) McCoy; sisters Kathy (David) Bowers and Mary (Jon) Nicolaysen. Other surviving family members include niece Tracy Ross and her son Alex; nephews Jeff McCoy; and Joel and Owen Bowers. He is preceded in death by his Mother and Father. As per Jerry's wishes his and Frieda's ashes will be interned at the Crystal Cathedral in Los Angeles, CA following a memorial service at a yet-to-be-determined date during the summer of 2015. Donations to a Breast Cancer Research Fund of your choice to help find a cure would be a great way to honor and remember both Jerry and Frieda.

Nelson, Louis Lenzi - Roy  
Louis "Lenzi" Nelson quietly and courageously lost his battle with cancer and passed away at his home in Roy, Utah on Friday, May 15, 2015. Lenzi was born July 12, 1925 in Salt Lake City, Utah to parents James Alfred Nelson (Nielson) and Clara Lenzi Folsom. His early years were spent in Ogden, Utah, and he later moved with his family to lower Roy, Utah when his father purchased a farm. It was there that Lenzi quickly learned the value of hard work and made future plans to become anything but a farmer. Lenzi graduated from Weber High School in 1943 and shortly thereafter, entered the United States Navy V-12 College Training Program designed to supplement commissioned officers during WW II. The training took him from Idaho State University to Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois, ultimately graduating with the rank of Ensign. His military service took him around the world. He served in both WW II and the Korean Conflict. He was discharged from active duty in 1953 with the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He served in the Naval Reserves until retirement in 1972. On October 22, 1945, he married Shirley Ann Brown in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. He was a longtime resident of Roy, Utah, building and establishing his home in 1949. Anyone who knew Lenzi knew that his passion was teaching first and fishing second. He was an educator for over thirty years in Davis County, Utah, the majority of those years at Davis High School. He taught courses in history, political science, mathematics, and was instrumental in starting one of the first computer science programs at the high school level. His teaching skills were impeccable, and he could demand immediate attention and respect from his students with a simple piece of chalk. He retired in 1986 to pursue his hobbies of fishing, golfing, reading, and fixing anything he could get his hands on. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is survived by his wife, Shirley Ann Brown Nelson and sons: Scott Louis Nelson (Susan), Escalante, UT; Bruce Lenzi Nelson (Jill), Joelton TN; Blake Arthur Nelson (Suzanne), Spokane, WA; Mark Brown Nelson (Tambra) Taylorsville, UT; and brother Richard (Dick) Nelson, Exeter, CA.
