Tanner Stettler Obituary, Death Cause – On August 31, 2018, Tanner Stettler passed away without any suffering and entered eternal. She was the first child to be born to her parents, Jesse Hilma Anderson Tanner and Rosella Morrell Tanner. She was born on April 7, 1923 in Fremont, Utah. She spent her childhood on a farm near Fremont, and she often talked about how hard she worked, how she rode her horse to school, and how much time she spent with her friends.
She was a prolific food preserver, as well as a talented quilter, historian, poet, and writer. She was also an accomplished gardener. She enjoyed performing her duties in the temple, gathering her entire family at Bicknell, eating cherry pie, reading, watching Lawrence Welk, conducting genealogy research, and keeping a spotless house. Hilma was a devout follower of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had many different callings within the organisation.
Marvin, Duain, Roy, Russell, and Marshall, along with Susan, were among the children that Hilma and Stanley reared in Bicknell, which is located in the state of Utah. Hilma supported her family by working as a teacher, a homemaker, and the clerk for the school district. She and Stanley were the owners of the Wayne Theatre for thirty years after purchasing it. She was a member of the Bicknell town council and assisted with a wide variety of community initiatives.
She was a pillar of the Christian community, and she never missed an opportunity to pass on her faith to her children, grandkids, and friends. Her family was the only thing in the world that she cherished more than the Church did. The last thing that is written in her book of recollections is, “My arms seem to grow longer and longer to reach around such an honourable and wonderful growing family…” My heartfelt love and best wishes go out to my wonderful family.
After completing her high school education at Wayne, she went on to further her education at LDS Business College. Her intellect was keen, and she never stopped eliciting new knowledge throughout her life. She had a wonderful time working in Salt Lake City and serving a mission in Northern California before her husband returned from active duty. She was married to her one and only true love, Wilford Stanley Brinkerhoff, in the Manti temple on November 18, 1946, and their marriage was sealed for time and eternity.
