Buelah Ann Stenberg Christensen, 88, passed away peacefully on Nov. 17, 2016 in Gunnison, 12 hours shy of her 89th birthday. She was surrounded by her loving family.
Mom is free from the devastating affects of Alzheimer’s, and we are thankful for her release and joyful reunion with Dad and loved ones gone before.
She was born on Nov. 18, 1927 in Mayfield, Utah to loving parents, Albert and Rhoda Anderson Stenberg. Buelah married R. Boyden Christensen June 28, 1947 in Mayfield. The marriage was later solemnized in the Manti Temple. He preceded her in death on Feb. 14, 2004.
Together they raised five children, Kayleen (Weston) Jeffery, Ray (Laurel) Christensen, Jerolyn (Randy) Young, Candice (Roger) Willardson and Mitzi Crane.
Mom had many talents and gifts that not a lot of people knew. She was an excellent homemaker. She was Dad’s loving companion, our sweet and kind loving mother, and the grand- and great-grandchildren’s perfect grandma.
Some of Mom’s many talents were her cinnamon rolls and hot rolls. If you ever tasted one of them, it was a little bit of heaven. Each one of the grandchildren received a hand-stitched quilt upon birth and graduation. She was a hard worker and someone you could always depend on.
She is survived by her five children and brothers, John and Maynard Stenberg. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; sister, Vonda Asvitt; brothers, Jay Stenberg and Ned Stenberg; and son-in-law, Bradford Bell.
Funeral services were held Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2016 in the Mayfield LDS Ward Chapel. Interment was in the Mayfield Cemetery. Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti. Online guestbook at www.maglebymortuary.com
