1925 ~ 2014
Castle Dale, UT-Helen McNeil Wilberg passed away on May 5, 2014 at the age of 88. Helen was born July 18, 1925 in Hiawatha, Carbon County, Utah to Cheney Garrett and Edria Pettey McNeil and grew up in Ferron and Orangeville, Utah. She married LaMar Joseph Wilberg on August 20, 1948 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Following his tragic death in November 1964, she met the challenges of widowhood for almost 50 years with perseverance and grace. A graduate of Central High School, Carbon College, and Brigham Young University, she taught at the Huntington, Castle Dale, and Orangeville Elementary Schools for over 30 years. An active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served in many capacities, including Relief Society President and was an ordinance worker at the Manti Temple for 15 years. She was a proud resident of Emery County and was involved in many civic activities, including serving on the Castle Dale City Zoning Committee, and she was a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. She will be remembered as a valued friend and neighbor. She not only shared many plates of baked goods, but also gave much of her time in the service of others. She was a devoted daughter and companion to her own widowed mother and parents-in-law, as well as a dedicated and loving mother and grandmother. She will be missed by family and friends alike.
Helen is survived by two children: Julie Wilson and Mack (Rebecca) Wilberg; as well as eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Special appreciation is expressed to the Legacy House of South Jordan for the tender care given to Helen during the last three years of her life, as well as neighbors, Bill and May Jorgensen for their continued care of her home.
