Helen Haymore Farr

June 8, 1944 – May 1, 2021

Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend was called home by a loving Heavenly Father, Saturday morning, May 1st. Helen was born to Franklin Reynard Haymore and Lela Finlayson in Provo, Utah on June 8, 1944. She was the fourth of eight children.

Helen married the love of her life, Lloyd Heber Farr, in the Manti, Utah temple, for time and all eternity, on June 21, 1962. Helen and Lloyd lovingly brought four beautiful children into this world. Bret Kimball, Michael Lloyd, Shelly Ann, and Franklin Dwain. Helen was always a very faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served in numerous callings throughout the years. Some of her favorites were Stake and Ward Young Women’s President, Ward and Stake Camp Director, Den Mother, and Relief Society teacher.

Helen never did anything part way. Every little task she did was done to perfection whether it was a menial task or a grand production. She enjoyed a multitude of hobbies including sewing, ceramics, porcelain dolls, crocheting, knitting, baking, cooking, crafting anything she saw or thought up in her mind’s eye. She loved to teach anyone and everyone how to do what she was doing. She loved camping, cooking in the Dutch ovens, and anything that had to do with her family or serving others. She was the epitome of a ministering angel here on earth.

Helen was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Mary Ellen and Barbara, brother Ross, and her precious great-grandson Todd Michael Dimick.

She is survived by her forever love and companion, Lloyd, her four children, Bret (Janna), Mike (Malinda), Shelly, and Dwain, 16 grandchildren, Necia, Preston, Samantha, Erinn, Tyler, Hillarie, Chasie, Briley, Mandy, Shandy, Kody, Zachary, Austin, Savannah, Nicole, and Braiden, 23 great-grandchildren and four brothers, Ronald, Ralph, Robert, and Randy Haymore.

Our family wishes to express our gratitude to the loving staff of Canyon Hospice and the nurses at Mountain West Medical Center for their compassionate care of our beloved Helen during the last days of her life.

    Helen was a wonderful person. Thoughtful, sweet & generous. I lived in the Farr home as a foster kid in my teens. We went camping, boating & rode atvs frequently in the summer. Helen always made snacks & the best sandwiches! ( with butter as her secret ingredient ) She will be greatly missed & is loved beyond measure. Special thanks to her & Lloyd for all the care over the years for my sisters & myself.

    I had the good fortune of knowing Helen as the mother of my good friend Shelly. Shelly and I met as young mothers and formed a special bond. I admired Helen for all of the things that she did that I couldn’t, and still can’t! Not the least of which was sewing and quilting. Many years ago, Shelly and her sweet mom, helped me create a quilt for my family. Due to some unfortunate life circumstances, I did not have possession of that quilt for about 23 years but it unexpectedly came back to me a few days ago. I don’t know what that means but I know that quilt is more special to me than ever before. My love goes out to Helens family. She was an amazing woman and I know she will be missed!

      My mom absolutely loved having you and your family in her home. Quilts are a huge part of her legacy. I am so grateful you have one and it is back in your possession. My mom loved you very much and was so grateful for the friendship you and I share. I love you ♥️♥️♥️

    What a beautiful funeral Lloyd. You should be so proud of your children and the love they have for their mom and for you. I send my love to you as you endure the future without your sweetheart by your side. One of my favorite Christmas gifts Helen made for us is the icicle ornaments and I remember you and Helen every time I see them. How grateful I am to have the teachings of eternal families to help us look heavenward and move forward. May you feel of His peace.

    I was sad to learn that Helen had passed. She was such a loving person. Helen was one of my earliest baby sitters. She showed me that girls could do anything. I watched her fix bicycles and swamp coolers as a little girl. She taught me to crochet and do embroidery work. I still enjoy those skills today. Vann and I remember the trips to the farm followed up with our moms canning, camping trips, and homemade Halloween costumes. The clothes Helen made for me and Shelley, dressing us as twins. Thank you for our childhood and many fond memories. Sincerely, Monica and Vann Sutton

    Helen was a wonderful lady who knew I was struggling with family when Bret was a missionary in Scotland. She wrote and shared her testimony and from that time she held a very special place in my heart. Even though miles separated us I felt close to her. About forty years ago she made a cabbage patch doll for Amanda and she loved it, as did her daughter Jodi in later years. That doll now waits to bring joy for when Jodi and Jonathon have children. She also gave me a Christmas fairy and every year for almost forty years that Christmas fairy sits in my home bringing memories of her. My thoughts are with all her family and I know she will be greatly missed – I send you all my love, hugs and sorrow at your loss. Bernadetta xxxxx
