Della (Greenhalgh) Christensen

May 15, 1920 ~ August 20, 2018 (age 98)

Della G. Christensen (98), Mapleton, was born May 15, 1920, to Angus Leo and Lillian Jensen Greenhalgh in Santaquin, Utah. She died August 20, 2018 after a long life well-lived.

She married Cleon P. Christensen Sept. 4, 1937 in Provo, Utah. Their marriage was solemnized in the Manti Temple on Jan. 16, 1959. He passed away June 29, 2005.

Della was a hard worker and an excellent cook. Visitors never left without her insisting on being treated to something delicious she had made. Her homemade rolls, bread, pies, and cakes were favorites. She spent many hours caring for her family and crocheting baby afghans and receiving blankets for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved parades, rodeos, and a good game of cards. During retirement years, she and Chris spent many winters as snowbirds in Quartzite and Yuma, AZ.

Della is survived by children, Larry (Diane) Christensen, Mapleton; Venice (Rulon) Gammon, Pleasant Grove; daughter-in-law Barbara Alleman (Ronnie, deceased), Lehi; RaNae (John, deceased) Vogel, Edgewood, WA; sister Rosalyn Hillman, Las Vegas; brother Billy Greenhalgh, Orem; 24 grandchildren; 79 great-grandchildren; and 15 great-great grandchildren. A son, Ronnie, and siblings, Leo, Gerald, Venice Sudweeks, and Ellen Jensen preceded her in death.
