Vilda Jessen Helquist

 Our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Vilda Jessen Helquist, 92, passed away on Saturday, March 24, 2001, at the Rocky Mountain Care Facility in Clearfield
She was born Feb. 20, 1909, in Richfield, a daughter to Jesse A. Jessen and Mary E. Anderton. She graduated from Richfield High School in 1927, and graduated from both Snow College and Brigham Young University. She later obtained a master's degree in education at Utah State University.
On June 19, 1933, she married her eternal companion and sweetheart, Alvin E. Helquist of Koosharem. The marriage was later solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple June 30, 1934.
She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. She had many church callings which included teaching many interesting and sought-after classes on the beliefs and teachings of the LDS Church.
She had many callings in life. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, and she was an excellent teacher, which was a love of her life. Mother enjoyed studying and researching many different subjects. She began her school teaching career in 1931 in Koosharem. While there, she met and married her sweetheart, Alvin Helquist.
They started their married life together in Koosharem, where their first son Therald was born. Later they moved to Richfield, Utah, where Larry, Val, and David were born. Some years later, the family moved to Layton, where they resided for the remainder of their lives.
Mom taught in the Richfield schools until 1959 when the family moved to Layton. Mother taught English and Utah history at Central Junior High in Layton, and also taught English at Layton High School, until she retired in 1974. Her expertise and knowledge helped many young people obtain the educational skills to further their personal growth and futures. She always enjoyed former students who would walk up to her on the street and let her know they enjoyed her as a teacher.
She loved her family and the church and was always there to help with positive comments and lots of love. She valued the beautiful things of life, the literature and arts of the past, and the scenery of the world. Reading books by the armload, watching movies, or studying history and religion were some of her hobbies. Going on rides and exploring new territory were favorite pastimes of Mom and Dad. Later, because of physical limitations, she traveled in her easy chair via books and video tapes.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Therald (Pat) Helquist, Englewood, Colo.; Val (LouAnn) Helquist, Layton; Dave (Rose) Helquist, Kaysville; 10 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren, and one sister, Dorthy Funk, Orange, Calif.
