Dale Willard Fackrell
Dale Willard Fackrell, age 91. It is with love and appreciation that we honor our father’s life—long enough to accomplish his desires—too short to realize all of his dreams.
He took great pride in getting his pilots license at age 61. Flying gave him satisfaction, excitement and some stark and brutal terror.
Arrival in this life was on Aug. 21, 1921, in Howell, Utah; the first child of Mary Elma and Israel H. Fackrell. His departure flight left on Oct. 24, 2012, at his home of natural causes, surrounded by loving family. Final destination: his reward in Heaven.
He was educated in Howell and graduated from Bear River High School in 1939. He proudly served in the Army Air Corps during WWII in the Philippines, Hawaii, and Iwo Jima.
He came back from the war, married Betty Jane (div), and had three children, Mark (Phyllis), Marlayne (Richard) Poulsen and Melanie Fackrell.
He graduated with a BS in Psychology from the University of Utah in 1957.
He married his second wife, Fern, and had Anne (David) Arrington. He has 16 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.
He was employed in various capacities by the federal government most of his life. After retiring from there, he worked for the State of Utah as an employment specialist. He liked to travel, visiting most countries of the world with his wife, Fern.
Never was there a kinder, tolerant, more gentle man; always looking out for the underprivileged and championing the underdog.
He loved to talk politics and study human nature, and he wished to be remembered as the self-proclaimed “bleeding-heart liberal Democrat” that he was.

Laurie Anne (Worwood) Fife
Laurie Anne (Worwood) Fife, 38, passed away suddenly, without warning, of an apparent heart attack at her home on Nov. 2, 2012. She was found shortly thereafter by her daughter, Josey, age six, who called 911 for help.
Laurie was born in 1973, to kind and wonderful parents, Garry and Barbara Worwood, of Honeyville, Utah, and will be buried on her birthday.
Everyone who knew Laurie or members of her family is invited to attend the funeral service celebrating her life.
Laurie was many things to many people throughout her life. Her talents were limitless. Small children were always greeted with wide smiles and loving hugs. The elderly and infirm were made comfortable and visited with. Nephews and nieces were played with, cousins were best friends, strangers were sought out and welcomed, parents were cared for, siblings were kept close, aunts and uncles were thought of and included, and friends everywhere—a wide variety—were consoled, laughed with, and healed.
Her love for all people flowed like warm sunshine through her smiling face. She never rested in doing good. She spontaneously penned hundreds of thank you notes and brief letters, gave thousands of thoughtful compliments and sent millions of encouraging, funny texts. She had an infinity of smiles.
Laurie was painter, a poet, a writer, a dancer, a musician and a singer. Laurie loved flowers of any kind. “They are all so beautiful, “ she would say.
Her sense of humor was renowned, her loyalty was absolute, her faith unshakable.
Born and raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Laurie’s daily life resembled that of her Savior—she could indeed be called by His name. Wherever she turned in life, she always found someone to help, or teach, or heal.
Like many in the world, however, Laurie chided herself for never doing enough. Discouragement waited in the shadows and guilt haunted her mind. Never noticing the great good she had done, she always regretted not doing more. The truth, however, is that she is a spectacular being of immeasurable worth. Whenever someone dies as young as Laurie, questions arise as to why. Perhaps the reason is simple. That great God of all creation, everyone’s kind Father in Heaven, has proven His daughter, and has reached down with His invisible hand and lifted Laurie to the safety of His bosom where her glorious resurrection awaits.
In spite of earthly challenges, Laurie has attained all the godlike attributes necessary for each of us. She is rearing a family, and shown herself to be a totally devoted mother, a loyal wife, a loving daughter, sister, aunt, niece, friend, and so may now enjoy her eternal reward. May those of us left behind mourn our loss and rejoice in her salvation.
Laurie was preceded in death by her little sister Mary Helen Worwood, age 4; her older brother “Bill” Garry Worwood, age 44; and her father Garry Virl Worwood, age 62. Surviving is her husband, Thomas Woodbury Fife, and their two children, Josey Marie Fife, and Simon Peter Fife; two step children, Joshua Thomas Fife and Hannah Marie (Fife) Rizzuto; her mother, Barbara Marie (Christensen) Worwood; and four siblings, Christine Hill, Amy Henrie, Mike Worwood, and Jennifer Worwood. Laurie’s entire beautiful family extends to uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews, nieces and many children within those families too numerous to mention by name, but each is special.
The funeral celebration will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, at 11 a.m., at the Brigham City North Stake Center, 620 N. 300 E. Brigham City, Utah.
A viewing will be held on Friday, Nov. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m..,at the Brigham City North Stake Center.
Interment will be in the Calls Fort Cemetery, Honeyville.
