  • Beverly June Olsen Bastian of Salt Lake City, Utah passed away peacefully in her longtime home, at the age of 93, on April 16, 2021. She was born June 11, 1927 in Scipio, Utah to Kenneth LeRoy Olsen and Emily Anna Peterson Olsen. As a child, her family moved to Salt Lake City where she grew up with her three sisters. She graduated from East High School in 1944. She married her sweetheart, Carl Elwood Bastian in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on May 1, 1947. They bought their home in Salt Lake City where they raised their three children. They remained there for the rest of their cherished years.

    She was a devoted wife and mother and an excellent homemaker. She enjoyed shopping for gifts and cards, weekly appointments at the salon, canning, and loved reading the newspaper every day. Professionally, she worked at General Electric, became a skilled bookkeeper at Summerhays Music, then retired as a talented secretary from the Utah State Board of Education after a dedicated 20 years. She was an intelligent woman who had a talent for proofreading, typing, and stenography. She was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served faithfully in many callings.

    To my dear cousins, Delyn, Denise, and David - while not there in person today, I am there in spirit... wanting to send my condolences to your family on the passing of aunt Bev. When my mom Rayola died two years ago, there was nothing more touching than to have aunt Bev stand up from her wheelchair with aunt Kay at the side of my moms casket to say goodbye to their sister. Aunt Bev was the last one of that generation, and other than aunt Lenore, they have all passed within the past 2 years. I will have great memories of her to enjoy, as they all enjoy being reunited on the other side. We will be in touch and wish you much love today and going forward. There is joy in the great Plan of Salvation for us all. Brian Collard and family...
