Belva Jackson Ingram Britton
Our beloved mother, sister, aunt and grandmother departed gently on August 14, 2016. She was born in Roosevelt, Utah on May 9, 1926. She was the third girl at that time to parents Fern & Harvey Perry Jackson. That family grew to 7 children, 6 girls and 1 boy. Belva’s family ultimately moved to Wayne County where she finished her schooling. She married Joseph Ashton Ingram, later divorced, and married Robert L. Britton who she was sealed to in the American Fork Temple.
Belva had 5 children, 4 sons and 1 daughter, Joseph (Ellen), Steve (Carma), Michael (Mary), Lois Ann Campbell, and Aaron (Deanna). Her children were the loves of her life. She loved hunting and fishing with her family. She also loved making beautiful quilts and made many family heirlooms over her life, which are cherished by her children and grandchildren.
Belva has been active in the LDS church her whole life and has always carried that faith with her throughout her life. Belva’s life has been one of service. If there was anyone she knew that needed care or help she was there for them. Many, many people who have needed a lift from their cares have enjoyed a cake or a meal delivered to their home by Belva. She has truly been a great example to her family and others of a kind care giver and nurturer. She is survived by her 5 children, 12 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, 4 great-great grandchildren and her sister Fontella Sweet and many nieces and nephews. She was so loved and cherished by all who knew her.
