September 4, 1942 ~ March 5, 2018
CLEARFIELD - Lelia Raylene Chamberlain Eriksson, having fulfilled her mortal probation here upon earth, passed away at her daughter's home, on March 5, 2018.
Lelia Raylene Chamberlain Eriksson was born September 4, 1942, in Ogden, UT, the only daughter of James William Chamberlain and Nora Ilene Jacobs. She was the second of four children.
Mother was a loving, strong, caring Christ-like woman. She married George Samuel Eriksson on November 8, 1963, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple for all time and eternity. This union was blessed with two daughters. Mother was tender-hearted towards everyone and never judged. She had a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and her savior Jesus Christ.
Raylene is survived by her two daughters, Jamie Lynn Greenwood (Ryan) of Sandy, and Kimberly Casey (Chris) of Clearfield; her father, James William Chamberlain; three brothers: Dennis William, Robert Lynn, and Greg J.; one sister, Darla Barnes; two very special grandchildren, Payton McKay Greenwood, and Makayla Greenwood, four grand-dogs, and two great-grand-dogs. She is preceded in death by her husband, George Samuel Eriksson; and her mother, Nora Ilene Jacobs Chamberlain.
Raylene served in many teaching positions within the church. She always enjoyed sharing the gospel with her neighbors, fellow sisters and family. Mom worked and retired from Clearfield City Police Department. This position allowed her to touch the lives of many who felt that their life meant very little. She was a fighter for the forgotten until the very end.
Funeral services will be held on Friday, March 9, 2018, at 11 a.m. at Lindquist's Layton Mortuary, 1867 North Fairfield Road. Friends may visit family Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. and Friday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the mortuary.
Interment, Clinton City Cemetery, 800 North 750 West, Clinton, Utah.
The family wishes to express their special thanks and love to Dr. Vincent Hansen and Staff of Intermountain Oncology, Tina, Andy, Angelina, Gloria, Marilyn and Chris. We would also like to thank Applegate Hospice, thank you both Megans for their loving services to our mother.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Primary Children's Hospital in the memory of Lelia Raylene Eriksson.
