Posted: 1500652011000
Classification: Obituary
Surnames: Hayward, Crane
Deseret News, 07/21/17


Beebe Fondell Crane was born at home in Bennington, Idaho on April 7, 1924. She is the oldest of eight brothers and sisters. At age 13, her family lost their father, George Crane, to an early death, creating a hardship for their widowed mother. She married Woodrow E Hayward on May 8, 1946 in the Idaho Falls Temple. When their second son, Paul, contracted polio they moved to Utah for medical treatment.
She served a Stake Mission in Montpelier; in Utah she was called as the ward drama director, and she cooked meals for the work missionaries; and served many years in ward libraries.
Beebe was from old pioneer stock, having a hard life during the depression, going without many things. She strived to help provide for her two sons and on several occasions, her grandchildren, and faithfully cared for an ill husband until he died. A member of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers, she remained true to the faith, researching family names for temple work. She always did more than her share or work, taking care of an elderly mother for many years. Her home was always open to visiting relatives. Annually she traveled to Idaho to decorate her father's grave for over 60 years.
Her grandchildren held a special place in her heart, receiving assistance from her as needed, making both happy.
She survived breast cancer, diabetes, macular degeneration and blindness in her aging years, and colitis from age 29. Her desire to pass while living in her home was granted.
We thank everyone who helped her over the years in any way, including the professional and caring medical providers. Noted are numerous times her home and visiting teachers, ward members, neighbors and friends accommodated her requests. She spoke highly of each of them.
Preceded in death by her parents, two sisters (infancy and adulthood), and her husband in 2008, she is survived by her two sons, Alan and Paul, seven grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, July 22, 2017, along with a viewing from11:45 AM to 12:45 PM at Russon Mortuary, 1941 North Main Street, Farmington, Utah. Online guest book at www.russonmortuary.com
In lieu of flowers we suggest contributions to the General Missionary Fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
