Beverly Dawn Holder Fieldsted, 94, passed peacefully away at her home on March 25, 2020.
She was born on June 8, 1925 in Myton, UT to J Edgar and Vera La Preal Gardner Holder. She has one brother, Bud Holder, and two sisters, Jeanne Sargent and Betty McLea.
She married Burke Fenton Shiner on Feb 14, 1943. Together they had one son, Billy Burke Shiner. Burke was killed in Belgium during WWII.
She married Harry W. Fieldsted on November 28, 1946 in Salt Lake City, UT. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on March 10, 1961. Together, they added 3 more sons to their family, Terry, Gary and Tony.
She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She served in many callings throughout her life. She was able to work in 3 temples; Provo, Nauvoo and Vernal. She and Harry served a mission to the Nauvoo Temple Mission.
Her life was not always easy however, because of her trials, she became grateful for all the little things this life provided her. Nobody ever left her home without being told how grateful she was for their visit and kindness. Nobody left her home hungry either.
The family wishes to express their gratitude for all the kindness and understanding that has been given to them during this past week. They feel sad that many could not come and say their final goodbye to Beverly and hope that all will understand our concerns over the virus.
Beverly is survived by her Eternal Companion of 73 years, Harry Fieldsted; children, Terry (Shauna) Fieldsted, Gary (Sheila) Fieldsted, Tony (Kailene) Fieldsted, sister, Betty (Varney) McLea, 17 grand children, 41 great grandchildren and 31 great-great grandchildren.
