Clyne Anderson Curtis, age 80, passed away on July 28, 2015 at his home in Lehi, Utah. Clyne was born October 28, 1934 in Logan, Utah as the oldest child of Seymour Clyne and Johanna Marie Anderson Curtis.
Clyne graduated from Cokeville High School and then later served an LDS mission to Sweden. While there he met his lifelong companion, Martha Cecilia Stromberg. After serving an honorable mission he returned home to America and Martha soon followed. They were sealed for time and all eternity on November 7th, 1958 in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple.
Clyne was an avid outdoorsman who liked to hunt, camp, fish, backpack, snowmobile and motorcycle ride. He took great pleasure in involving his children whenever possible. Family vacations when they were growing up always involved camping or backpacking and visiting national parks. As a result, they all have a deep love for nature and the outdoors which is a legacy from their father.
Clyne was very active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had a strong testimony of the gospel. He served as the Gospel Doctrine teacher for many years and was Sunday school president, Elders quorum president and a Stake missionary together with his wife. He had a good knowledge of the scriptures and the doctrines of the gospel. He and his wife also served a second mission in his later years in the Stockholm Temple. It was a joy for him to return again to the people of Sweden, whom he loved, and see young people who had now grown up and were holding positions in Stakes and Wards where before there had been only branches. It was the choice experience of his life. Clyne loved to attend the Temple and he and Martha would go often.
Clyne is survived by his wife, Martha, children, Clyne (Colleen) Curtis, Anna-Lisa (Tod) Murray, Wayne (Kristen) Curtis, Linnea (Ben) Baggett, Alison Ainge, Michael (Melanie) Curtis, 22 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and his siblings Kathy Smith (Burke) and Ron Curtis (LaRue).

Her dogs were her babies and part of the family, and she would pamper and spoil them every chance she had.
Rosemary was a very loving mother to her children and beloved grandmother to her grandchildren. Family was always the most important thing to her. She loved spending time laughing and joking with her kids and grandkids and would sit and talk to them for hours on end, no matter what time of day it was. She always had a way of knowing exactly what you needed to hear and how to make everything better. More than anything, Rosemary adored her husband, John. The two of them were inseparable. The only place she ever wanted to be, was by his side.

My mother, Barbara Whitaker Knudson, was born on July 2, 1938 in Farmington, Utah to Keith Whitaker (who loved to hear her sing) and Dorothy Whitaker Bowcutt. She grew up one of 6 children, and lived at various times, in Milford, Salt Lake, and Stockton, CA. She spent a year at B.Y.U., and worked for the telephone company before getting married and having one child. She named me Brent.
Barbara was challenged her entire life with a seizure disorder. Even with the many falls and head wounds, she managed to live independently many years of her life, and raise her son mostly by herself.
She was a fine mother to me and did her best to teach me a good set of life values. We lived a good life walking and riding bicycles to grocery stores, going to church, bowling occasionally, and growing up in Stockton, CA. She was a good cook and made a homemade pizza I still remember fondly. We both loved to eat ice cream and her favorite was Neapolitan.
Barbara is survived by her son Brent (Keiko) and her wonderful siblings MarJean, LaDean, Dennis, Don, and Dale. I want to thank all of them for the help and support they gave my mother and me at different times throughout the years of her life. Special thanks to LaDean and Dale for opening their house to me and being my partners in helping to regularly visit and look after her in the later years. Thanks to MarJean and George who helped in her early life, were always there for support, and made her final arrangements perfect. Thanks to Don and Sandy for helping us and being a second family to me in Stockton for many years while I grew up. Thanks to my wife Keiko for her support, and making many trips to Salt Lake with me to help look after mom.
Special thanks to all the staff at Rocky Mountain (Murray) care center for providing skilled care and loving companionship to my feisty mom for the last years of her life. Thanks to all other previous health organizations and care systems that made her life safe and manageable.
My mother loved the Mormon faith, and I want to express our gratitude to the LDS Church for providing sanctuary, help, fellowship, and solid core values in her life and mine as well. Barbara was not able to drive a car and I want to thank the Shumway and Sorenson families in Stockton, CA. for the countless rides to church during those years. Thanks to all the other members of the church who gave help at different times throughout her life.
Funeral services will be held, Thursday July 23, 2015 11:00 a.m. at the Anderson & Sons Mortuary, American Fork. A viewing will be held from 9:45-10:45 a.m. prior to services. Burial in American Fork Cemetery. Please share a memory at andersonmortuary.com.
