  • Notes 
    • !Obituary: Faye Marie Beckstrand Higginson (Gubie) It is with broken hearts that we say goodbye to our beautiful Gubie. She began her new life and returned to God the evening of July 9, 2006 at her home and surrounded by the family she loves so much. Her love for us will be never ending as will our love for her. She will forever be the most amazing person we will ever know. Faye was born on May 26, 1921 to Alma Neal and Jesse Kathleen Pettit Beckstrand. She grew up in Sugar House and graduated from South High School. In 1938 Faye married George Franklin Higginson and had three children, Rex, Kathleen (Kay) and Janice (Jann). They later divorced and she raised her three children on her own in a time when that was unheard of. Mom embraced Jesus and lived her Christian values both as a member of the LDS faith and in her last days as a member of the Catholic faith. She found peace and comfort in both faiths. Mom worked for Dr. Ed Tugaw at Central Valley Veterinary Hospital for 25 years and then for the Utah Dept. of Agriculture for 12 years. Mom was a gusty lady. In1974 she went on a six week adventure, by herself, to Japan, China and then Australia to see Rex and Judy. She later made another trip to Australia to meet her grandson and granddaughter. Mom loved to fish at Strawberry, hunt at the Chesapeake Duck Club and watch Skyler play soccer. She loved working in her garden and could sit outside in her swing for hours. Mom and Aunt Dorothy made two trips to Branson where they became school girls again and had the time of their lives. Faye leaves behind her daughter Jann and son-in-law Jake Penney; eight adoring grandchildren; 12 great grandchildren; sister Dorothy Soleberg (Charles); sister-in-law and best friend,Dorothy Beckstrand; daughter-in-law Judy Higginson; son-in-law Tim Nielson; nieces; nephews, and her dear friend of 52 years, Mary Shepherd and countless people that will miss her dearly. Those awaiting mom in heaven are son Rex; daughter Kay; her parents; brother Harold and sister Erma. Our heartfelt thanks go out to 1st Choice Hospice. The team not only took care of mom but they also took care of her family as well. Mom came to love each member of her team. Services for this beautiful lady will be held on Friday July 14, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. at the Wasatch Lawn Mortuary Chapel, 3401 South Highland Drive, where friends may call from 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. prior.
