1930 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Marilyn Jensen Lybbert
1930 ~ 2014
Marilyn was born January 25, 1930, to loving parents, Hans Christian Jensen and Eunice Greenwood Jensen in Murray, Utah. She felt blessed to be born to a perfect family and reared in a comfortable home and rural neighborhood among 'dear hearts and gentle people'. She passed away on Thursday March 27, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Marilyn attended school in Midvale and Sandy, graduating from Jordan High in 1948. She attended Brigham Young University where she met her future husband, Rex Bennion Lybbert. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple in April of 1952. Rex passed away in 1980.
Most of her married life she was a 'stay-at-home mom', active in PTA, community and church assignments. She served in all of the auxiliary organizations of her Church as a teacher, counselor, and President of Ward and Stake Primary, and Stake Relief Society President. She was historian for the Sandy Utah Mount Jordan Stake for many years. She served as a volunteer in the Jordan River Temple for ten years. She compiled two volumes of Family History: Jensen and Greenwood.
Following her husband's passing, she worked thirteen years at Jordan Credit Union. After retiring she contributed countless articles including hand made quilts, baby blankets and new born gift packets for the LDS Humanitarian Center.
She is survived by her sister, Kathleen Brown, two precious children: Lynnette and her husband Jamie Beers, and son, Kim Bennion Lybbert who cared for her during her illness, four lovely granddaughters and their husbands, Melanie (Lance) Wilson, Annalyn Beers, Natasha (Nathan) Killpack, Vanessa (Marc) Glover. She adored her eight great-grandchildren who often came to play or hold a tea party. She had many treasured nieces and nephews. The loving support of her family and friends was always assured and appreciated.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and twin sons: Kenneth Rex and Brent Christian Lybbert, whose sojourn here was only one day, her sisters, Janice Barton and Afton Day.
Marilyn loved the beauty of nature and life as she cared for her roses, garden and yard. She enjoyed reading, writing and was always ever increasing her knowledge by studying along with attending educational classes.
Marilyn considered her life to be rich in blessings including family (her husband's also) and so many treasured friends. Her loving kindness, willingness to serve, great example was felt by many and will be missed by all. She was reluctant to leave those who survive her, but anxious to greet again those who have gone before.
Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, April 4th at the Mt. Jordan 3rd Ward Chapel, 8950 South 400 East, Sandy, Utah. A viewing will be held Thursday evening from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Goff Mortuary, 8090 South State Street and one hour prior to the services at the church.
Interment will be at the Midvale Cemetery.
