Colene Child Beck, age 88 of Springville, passed away quickly and peacefully on April 5, 2024, in Springville, Utah. She was born August 30, 1935, in Springville to Hardy (Tuff) and Norma Averett Child. She married Richard Vernon Beck on December 7, 1956 in Springville and they were later sealed to each other in the Manti Temple.

Colene was raised and attended schools in Springville and attended one semester of college at Utah State University and one semester at BYU. Colene lived her entire life in Springville.

Colene enjoyed spending time with her family in Wanrhodes Canyon at the ranch; whether fixing fences, riding horses, snowmobiling, or sitting on the cabin porch working on embroidery or various handwork projects, or reading her latest book; she was a bookworm. She never outgrew her love of riding horses.

Colene had many friends. She had a love for quilting and spent many hours making beautiful quilts; many which she shared with her family and closest friends. She spent several years working at the Corn Wagon Quilt Co. in Springville with her friends and spreading her love with others. She also loved her Diet Coke and baseball. In the summer you could find her working on her latest quilt, with a Chicago Cubs baseball game on in the background and her Diet Coke mug close by.

Colene also had a love for animals, especially dogs. She had many during her life, but she was especially fond of Bo Dog and Star.

Colene held many church callings. Her favorite was the guide patrol scouts. She loved the five mile hikes and cooking on a rock. She also loved serving at the Provo Temple answering the prayer roll phone.

She is preceded in death by her husband Richard, her brother, John Child, her parents and father and mother in-law, Wayne Andrew and Rachel Marsh Beck. She is survived by her brother, Bill Child; daughter, Teri (Bill) North; son, Tad (Tammy) Beck; and grandchildren: Amy Buckalew, Justin North, Chelsey Beck, Colby (Karlee) North, and Zack Beck, and six great grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at the Spring Creek Mortuary, 737 N. Main in Springville. There will be a viewing from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. followed by a funeral at 11 a.m. Interment will be in the Springville Evergreen Cemetery.
