My Grandmother Feild's Obituary

1921 ~ 2011
True Roundy Feild, daughter of George Spencer Roundy and Hannah Agnes Marchant Roundy, completed her time on earth and left us early in the morning of September 2, 2011. She was born September 19, 1921 in Peoa, Utah where she spent her life. She loved her home in the mountain valley and the people there.

True graduated from South Summit High School and Utah State University where she obtained a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. She taught 3rd grade in Kamas. After her marriage to Keith Alma Feild she devoted her life to her children, church, ranch, and community. 

She served faithfully and diligently in many church callings including a mission with her husband to Fort Thompson, South Dakota, where they grew to love the people there, and service in the Salt Lake City Temple. She was proud of her pioneer heritage so membership in Daughters of the Utah Pioneers was a joy to her. (These last few years were a trial to her. Because of her physical limitations she was unable to serve as she was accustomed to. ) And she found the time to attend many rodeos and other athletic events to cheer for her sons and grandchildren. 

Our mother taught us well in the important things of life. Her example and steadfastness showed us the way. We will always cherish her. She will be missed. True is survived by her children, Hannah Braithwaite (Kent), Joyce Buhler (Paul), John Feild (Becky), and Lewis Feild (Veronica), sixteen grandchildren and 25 " greats". 

She is now reunited with her husband, her parents, sister Verna, little brother John, and her son Richard. What a joyous time it must be.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Friday, September 9,2011 at the Peoa Ward LDS Chapel. Friends may call on Thursday evening, September 8 from 6p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. prior to the services. Interment will be in Peoa Cemetery following the services.

The family expresses appreciation to all of True's friends, neighbors, and ward members who were such a support to her these last few years. A special thank you goes to the caregivers at the Beehive Home in Payson, Utah who took such good care of our mom these last six months. In lieu of flowers True would want you to make a donation to the Primary Children's Hospital or a charity of your choice

What a beautiful tribute. I'm sorry about your grandma. We're thinking of you.

Wow... you've had a lot of losses this year.

I have 2 grandmothers and 1 grandfather left. Jeff lost his last natural grandparent last year. It's a bit chilling but also in a way, comforting to kind of experience the natural passing of a generation (perhaps the first one) I grew close to. Also unnerving... makes me confront a lot of my own fears. Hope all is all right with you and your fam.

The DUP are such a great organization. They've helped me a lot in my writing projects.
