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.

    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!
