Helen Josephine Lindsay Dayton passed away surrounded by family on April 18, 2019 in Orem, Utah at the age of 93. She was born on June 14, 1925 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her parents were Warren Leroy Lindsay and Mary Christena Anderson Lindsay. She has one older sister Katherine, who is deceased. Helen was a remarkable woman who spent her life focused on her family. Her greatest loves were:

• Leland Kay Dayton – her husband of 70 years.
• Her children – Claudia, Eileen, Lee (Elizabeth), Ruth (Rick) Mooney, Mark (Cynthia), Ron (Anita), Bruce (Becky), and Mary (Steve) Bullock; 46 grandchildren and many great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by two children, Daryl and Sylvia.
• The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – With unwavering conviction she served in many capacities, including four missions with her husband Kay.

She loved big family gatherings and would invite her grandchildren attending BYU to her home on a regular basis. She loved to feed them more than they could possibly eat. She opened her home to those in need and almost always had house guests, often from foreign countries. She touched many lives with her generosity and compassion.

She exemplified great courage and strength in dealing with significant challenges and tragedies in her life, particularly during the illness and death of two of her young children. She created a home with a feeling of “warm arms” which served as a safe haven for family and friends throughout her life. Her home was always a gathering point where everyone was welcome.

We loved Helen. She was a wonderful woman and a friend you could count on. Her home was one of the first places where our children were able to vote.
