    • Obituary:
      Beloved wife, Mother, and friend, Claire Beckstrand Brimley, 78 died o n F ebruary 4th, 2013 in Murray, UT. She was in the arms of her husband a nd i n the presence of family as she passed.

      Born in Meadow, Utah December 28th, 1934, the daughter of Ireta Christia n sen and John Beckstrand. Married in 1957 to Wallace G. (Jerry) Brimley . T ogether they brought two beautiful daughters, Jerri-Lei and Jennifer , an d three boys, James Paul, John Christopher, and Mark Anthony into th e wor ld.

      Her children were her passion, along with, cooking new recipes, cannin g f resh fruit from her orchard, baking, visiting (and gossiping!) with h er m any, many friends going, to the beach, gardening, and most of all ea ch sp ring filling her beautiful deck with pots of fresh flowers and jus t enjoy ing everything this world had to offer. Mom was a very special wo man wh o touched many people with her generosity, passion for life and lo ve fo r her family. She had a favorite quotation from E. Bombeck, "Whe n I stan d before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would no t have on e bit of talent left, and could say: "I used everything you gav e me. " Sh e was an inspiration to all in her battle with Rheumatoid Arth ritis, an d heart problems for many years. Never letting them get her dow n or givin g up. She lived a full life throughout the illness and fough t it to the e nd. We like to think she died from the battle and not the d isease .

      Claire is survived by her loving husband, Jerry, adoring daughters Jer r i Longo (Mark) Jennifer Jones (Leon) and sons James Paul (Car men), Jo h n Christopher, and Mark Anthony (Analeisa) and many nieces and nephews , g randchildren, and one great-grandchild. Special thanks to the true ca re a nd love from her many long-terms doctors and other medical personnel .

      A Funeral celebration will be held Saturday 11:00 a.m. at the Glacial Pa r k LDS Church 2675 E. Mt. Jordan Rd. Sandy, UT. Committal at the Histor i c Granite Cemetery, 2971 East 9800 South. Directors Neil O'Donnell & So ns .
      Mom, all of our hearts are breaking, but know that you are now free an d a t peace. We miss you more than words can ever express. Please watch o ve r us. Love, your adoring family.
