1937 ~ 2017

Beverley Jane Brown Udarbe peacefully passed away in her home on August 23, 2017. She was born October 7, 1937 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada to Charles Brown and Helen Doris Simpson. She lived close to both sets of grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins, with whom she enjoyed many family relationships. As a young woman she attended the Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute. Her great desire was to become a nurse following in the footsteps of a much admired cousin. Unfortunately, this dream was not realized. She loved participating in various sports, especially hockey, was an avid swimmer and a fierce competitor.

Beverley was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on September 7, 1952. As the youngest member of the Relief Society in the Kingston Branch, she often assisted driving her mother, as president, in visiting the various sisters. On one occasion she traveled with these members to visit the Hill Cumorah and had the privilege of attending a worship service in the Sacred Grove with the Apostle, Spencer W. Kimball. This made a lasting impression upon her.

At the age of seventeen, Beverley left her home in Kingston and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. Here she found jobs in various business establishments, going on to work for the Church Genealogical Society and at one time being employed by Pres. J. Reuben Clark, Jr. She resided in the 20th Ward of the Ensign Stake where she met her husband, John Robert Udarbe. They were married on February 10, 1961 in the Salt Lake City Temple. Together they had two children, Jonette Udarbe Wells and John Robert Udarbe, Jr. Always faithful to priesthood callings, her early training under inspired mentorship, lead her into the service of the Master as a Stake Missionary and in the Relief Society, Primary, Young Women and Cub Scouting programs.

As years rolled on she would be instrumental in touching the lives of sisters of all ages, circumstances, cultures and nationalities. She loved the beautiful variety of Heavenly Father’s special daughters. Her unique talents drew many to acknowledge their own divine nature as she applied generously the Balm of Gilead.

On June 10, 1968 Beverley, along with her mother, became naturalized citizens of the United States of America. She loved this country, she cherished freedom and retained in remembrance the duty and responsibility of citizenship and was ever grateful for the unbounding privileges afforded under the banner of liberty. She volunteered when and where possible to enhance the lives of others, especially those from foreign countries. Language barriers were no problem for her as she often used communication of the heart and hands.

Beverley was preceded in death by her son, John Robert Udarbe, Jr., and her brothers, Lawrence James Brown and Thomas Charles Brown. She is survived by her husband John Robert Udarbe, daughter Jonette Udarbe Wells, granddaughters Laurel Anne Wells Morgan and Bethany Wells, grandson, Christian John Wells, and by her sister Charlene Lynn Pierce.
