9/29/1934 ~ 3/12/2019
Marian Ruth Nielson Beck, 84, passed away peacefully Tuesday, March 12, 2019, surrounded by her children at Alta View Hospital in Sandy, Utah. She was born in Mt. Pleasant, Utah on September 29, 1934, the daughter of Ruth Gunderson and Grant C. Nielson. Marian was raised in Mt. Pleasant by her loving grandparents Anna Rolph and Vern H. Gunderson, after her parents divorced early on in her life.
Marian graduated from North Sanpete High and married her High School sweetheart Allan L. Beck in 1953. They were married 25 years and were blessed with four children Mark Allan, Malinda, Marianne and Matthew.
After their divorce, Marian lived in St. George Utah and then Salt Lake City where she resided until her passing. After moving to Salt Lake City, she worked for Marriott in reservations for many years. She loved her job and the fun trips it enabled her to take with her daughters.
Marian will be remembered for her beautiful smile, her kindness and unconditional love, and was referred to by many as a sweetheart. She was an avid New England Patriots football fan and was a beautiful seamstress. She had a love for beautiful orchids, geraniums, fuchsia flowers, the colors bright pink & blue, Eternity fragrance, and most of all, a love for her family and friends.
Her children would like to thank all of her friends at Solstice Senior Living Retirement Community where she enjoyed the last years of her life.
Marian is survived by her children Mark Allan (Laura) Beck of Mt. Pleasant, Utah, Malinda (Scott) Overman of Draper, Utah, Marianne (Patrick) Davis of Pocatello, Idaho, and Matthew (Becky) Beck of Lindon, Utah. She is the grandmother of 16 grandchildren and the great-grandmother of 24.
