Bevis Young Broadhead Obituary
Bevis Y. Broadhead
1933 - 2014
Bevis Young Broadhead was born November 12, 1933 in Ely, Nevada to Harvey and Florence Young. She passed away peacefully in her home on November 15, 2014 following a long illness. She was the oldest of four children: Harvey Young Jr, Gene Young, and Millie Young (Luscher).
Bevis was raised in Ely, Nevada and graduated from White Pine High School in 1951. She attended Nursing School for a time at Westminster and Brigham Young University. While living in Ely, she met the love of her life, Stirling Spencer Broadhead and married on June 15, 1956. They were sealed in the Los Angeles Temple on March 10, 1962, and are the parents of four children: Stirling (Lori) Broadhead, Stephen (Amy) Broadhead, David (Sharon) Broadhead, and Mary (Mike) Norton, 16 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
Bevis was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and served in many callings and organizations. She was an exceptional pianist and musician, and served as the ward chorister and choir director for many years. She directed stake choirs and musical productions. One of her favorite callings was serving as the Young Women's President where she helped influence and mold the lives of many young ladies in her ward and neighborhood. She was kind and caring to everyone she met, and made all around her feel important because of her unconditional love. However her greatest achievement was in being a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother to her family members. Bevis was a perfectionist, and taught her children the importance of integrity, hard work and service to others. Her cooking skills were second to none, and her family and friends always enjoyed the creative dishes she prepared. She was selfless in her service toward others, and a true disciple of her Savior, Jesus Christ. She will be missed by all who had the privilege of associating with her.
Bevis is survived by her husband Stirling, sister Millie, and her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Preceded in death by her parents and two brothers. The family would like to thank the caregivers at Millcreek Home Health and Hospice for their gentle and loving care toward our mother.
Funeral services will be held November 21, 2014, 11:00 am, at the Cottonwood 11th Ward, 1830 E. 6400 S, Murray. Friends may call Friday 9-10:30 am at the church prior to services.
