Dunsdon Chamberlain, 90, passed away Friday, August 23,
2013, surrounded by her loving husband and eight children.

Fae and June. She started school in the little red school
house and graduated from American Fork High School. Alta

were blessed with four sons and four daughters. They have
40 grandchildren and 40 great grandchildren--the joy of
Alta served in the Primary and Relief Society, both Ward
and Stake. Alta was an avid genealogist, meticulous in her
documentation. She and her beloved husband served a mission

Workers at the Mount Timpanogos Temple. Together they hosted
the WWII National Submarine Convention in 1995.
