Helen Brimhall Berry
1923 ~ 2014
Provo, UT-Helen Brimhall Berry, a valiant daughter of our Heavenly Father, died on August 29th, 2014. She was born in Provo, Utah, on November 28th, 1923 to Wilford Woodruff Brimhall and Olva Evans Brimhall. She married Charles Rex Berry in Elko, Nevada, on July 28th, 1945. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They raised their children, Linda Lee Berry Roberts (Dean), Douglas Charles Berry (Lori), and Julie Ann Berry Slaugh (Leigh) in Sandy, Utah. They enjoyed living in San Francisco, California, and Atlanta, Georgia, but were thrilled to be home in Provo. They have 14 grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren.
Helen was the best wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, grandmother, great-grandmother, Relief Society president, Young Women's president, secretary, primary teacher, Young Women's leader, Relief Society teacher, temple worker, and visiting teacher anyone could ever ask for.
She loved to golf, sew, paint, camp, fish, and travel the world with Rex and their wonderful friends.
She suffered a debilitating stroke in August of 1997 but always kept a cheerful, positive attitude. She loved meeting each of her new great-grandchildren, the ward salmon fry, and watching the birds enjoy her beautiful garden. Rex passed in July of 2005 and she has been anxious to join him. We know their reunion was joyous.
She was preceded in death by her sister Lavonda Brimhall Wilson. She is survived by her sister Ruth Brimhall Johnson (Wendall) of Mountpelier, Idaho, many nieces and nephews, faithful friends, and her posterity. She is dearly loved and will be missed.
