Smith.HelenaHelena Smith

Centerfield, Utah

Helena Nielson Smith passed away peacefully on November 28, 2014 at the age of 96, in Centerfield. Mom was born April 13, 1918, at the family home in Crowleyville, south of Centerfield, Utah. She was the first of seven children born to Valeria Elizabeth Larsen and William Marinus “Bill Crowley” Nielson.

Helena became her dad’s right-hand-man, learning to manage a team of horses, do chores and herd cows while she growing up on the farm. She claimed never to have learned to keep house but was an excellent cook and professional seamstress. She attended elementary school in Centerfield and left GunnisonValleyHigh School in her senior year to attend business school in Salt Lake City. Following graduation she moved to Los Angeles to work. It was there she met Wilmer Charles Smith. Dad was a city boy. They were married July 23, 1938 in Santa Monica and lived happily in a new house, with a good income and daughter Marge for the first six years of their marriage. Then Dad decided he wanted to raise his children on the farm in Crowleyville instead of the streets of LA.

The family moved back to the family homestead from a life of luxury in the city to an old house with no indoor plumbing in Crowleyville. Mom and Dad were always resourceful and began life anew by building a welding shop, constantly remodeling their home and later buying a farm in Axtell. All can remember pulling up a chair to enjoy good conversation and one of Mom’s home-cooked meals on their large front porch. We were always rich, often not in cash, but in the ability to make something out of nothing while enjoying the work. While we were growing up Mom made most of our clothes, attended every school event, chaperoned all of our field trips and was a leader in our 4-H clubs. She was also a manager in the local sewing plant and kept books for the welding shop and farm. She loved being a member of the DUP and a visiting teacher, with time to help anyone who had a need for her many talents. Mom and Dad always worked together as a team to make sure their children were raised with a good work ethic, basic life skills, education and the enjoyment of whatever circumstances might arise.

Several times each year Dad came home from work in the afternoon and told Mom we needed to go to LA on vacation. She was always prepared for these spontaneous trips and would pack us into the car and make sure we kept up on our schoolwork while we were gone. Dad drove all night and we would awaken in Santa Monica at our grandparents. After visiting relatives, going to the beach, Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm we packed up new-found treasures from the ocean and returned home to share the experiences with our friends at school.

After the kids were raised and began having children of their own, Mom and Dad enjoyed spending several months each spring and fall camping at LakePowell. Going to Grandma’s house often became a vacation to the lake with swimming, hiking, water skiing and fishing. She loved to have her grandchildren and great-grandchildren visit, looking at each one as a special gift to be enjoyed in a unique way. Her optimism, love of the gorgeous blue sky that matched her gorgeous blue eyes left everyone she knew with a feeling of warmth.

As the oldest in her family, she was amazed at living to the age of 96. She has missed the friends, boating at LakePowell, cruises and trips with siblings and the association of family who have passed before her. Everyone whose life she touched will miss her more than words can express.

Survived by her children: Marge Coates and Marilou (Phil) Davis, Kelly (Barbara) Smith; daughter-in-law, Gail Smith; 13 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren; brother Neil (Colleen) and sister Betty.

Helena is preceded in death by her parents; husband; son, Charles Kirk; son-in-law, Guy Coates; daughter-in-law, Victoria Rees; brothers Ned and Jerry; sisters, Melba and Lillis.

The family extends their thanks and admiration to the staff of the CenterfieldCommunityLivingCenter, Gunnison Hospice and Dr. Embley for her continued love and care. Though she appreciated the excellent care she was given, she longed to return to the home she had built and cherished.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 12:00 Noon in the Axtell LDS Chapel, where friends may call Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Burial will be in the Centerfield Cemetery.

Orangevale, California/Salina, Utah – Our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend, Joseph Darwin Colby, 98, passed away peacefully, November 12, 2014 in Carmichael, California, after enduring failing health the last couple of years. Darwin was born January 8, 1916 to LeRoy and Sarah Elizabeth Crane Colby in Salina, Utah, where he grew up. He attended SalinaHigh School where he enjoyed playing basketball.

Darwin started his young, adult life working at the Hoover Dam (formerly Boulder Dam) project from 1931 through 1935. Darwin was the youngest man hired at 15 ½ years old and was officially the last surviving worker from the project. In December 1935, he enlisted in the Navy and served honorably with a discharge rating of Fireman 1st Class. Shortly after that time, he worked in the ship yards of Alameda / OaklandCalifornia during World War II.

After the war, Darwin moved back to Utah and while living and working in a drug store and for a mortuary in Salt Lake City, he met and married Alice Laura (Guild) Colby of Salt Lake City in her parent’s home on October 6, 1942. Darwin and Alice started their lives together by moving back to California where he spent a short time at HealdEngineeringSchool in San Francisco, but found a stronger desire to work the mortuary business. After completing embalming school, he and his wife, moved to Stockton, California to begin his career at B. C. Wallace Funeral Home. Their first child, Dara Lee, was a still born in 1945. A few years later he entered his successful real estate career in Stockton, building J. Darwin Colby Real Estate Company. A daughter, Cathleen, was born in 1947 and a son, Joseph (Joe) Darwin, Jr. was born in 1952. In 1955 he earned his private pilot’s license and purchase a Cessna air plane. He enjoyed flying to Mexico to do sail fishing and to Wyoming to go Elk hunting. He and Alice divorced in 1956.

In 1966 he married Jenny Neomia Mitchell and soon acquired 40 acres of land in Modesto, California and grew rice. He had a fond love of the farming life. A good day on the farm was when he was in his air conditioned Kabota tractor or running the combine at harvest. After Jenny’s death in 1989, Darwin met and married Wana Jean Walker and lived in Orangevale, California. She died in 2007.

Darwin enjoyed traveling back to Utah for the opening of deer season and hunted in SalinaCanyon most every year after moving to California. He could also be found at FishLake at the opening of fishing season each year until his health prevented him from traveling. Some of Darwin’s greatest delights were having family around and sharing stories both old and new; deep sea fishing and fishing at Lake Tahoe. Although he lived and worked in California, his heart was still in Salina and Utah. It was a great delight to him to be able to assist the Salina Fire Dept in the purchase of a water truck and other much needed equipment for the new fire house.
