Jacquelyn Larsen Faulkner was born March 6, 1930, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to William C. and Bernece Larsen Faulkner. She was the second of six children. Surrounded by loved ones, she passed away at her home in Murray, Utah, on Monday, December 16, 2019.\r\n\r\nShe spent her early years in Salt Lake City, and often, because of the Great Depression, the family lived with her grandparents, Arthur S. and Annie Hancock Larsen on 1st Avenue. In 1938 her father was offered a job in Spokane, Washington. These proved to be very good years for them, and they returned to Utah, settling on a fruit farm in Provo, Utah, in 1943. Jackie was her Dad's “helper”, driving the horse to spray the trees and was delighted when they could afford a tractor. She worked at the cannery, up on the hill in Edgemont, in the fruit packing sheds and at the Scera Theater. After graduation from Lincoln High School she attended BYU. It was there she was introduced to a young man from North Carolina, her future husband, James Bynum Bryant. They were married on June 7, 1949 in the Salt Lake Temple, and Jackie became the Chief Telephone Operator at BYU while her husband finished earning his degree. Four months later Jim, a former Navy Corpsman, was recalled for the Korean Conflict, being assigned to the Oakland Naval Hospital, where they spent the next two years. They returned to Utah and Dugway Proving Grounds, where they lived until 1961. Jim then became employed with Hercules and they bought their home in Murray. \r\n\r\nJackie had a great love for her Savior and believed with all of her heart that she should “feed My sheep.” She tried to always help those in need. She served many callings in the LDS Church: Teacher, Primary President, Young Women's President (Dugway & Murray), Stake Young Women's President, and in two Relief Society Presidencies. Her heart was filled with joy as she also served as a Service Missionary at the Genealogical Library. \r\n\r\nJim & Jackie were the parents of seven children: James F., Patricia Raymond, Bernece Stradley, William F., David F., Matthew F., and a Navajo foster son, Charlie McCabe. Preceded in death by her husband; her children, David, Bernece, and Charlie; parents; brothers, William and Arthur; and sisters, Diane Jarvis and Margaret Woody. She is survived by her sons, James, William and Matthew; daughter, Patricia; and brother, Nicholas Faulkner. \r\n\r\nFuneral services will be held Saturday, December 21, 2019, at 1 p.m. at the Murray 12th Ward, 363 E. Vine Street. A viewing will be Friday evening, December 20, 2019, from 6-8 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 South State Street, Murray, and at the church on Saturday from 12:00-12:45pm.\r\nInterment: Murray City Cemetery.
