Barbara Lynne Bell Orgill

Surrounded with loved ones, Barbara Lynne Bell Orgill passed on from us September 24, 2014 in Rifle, Colorado after a valiant fight with cancer. Lynne was born in Grantsville, Utah on May 10, 1940. She was the second of five children born to Kenneth Kyle Bell and Charlotte Irene Orr Bell. After her school years in Grantsville she went on to work for MA Bell, was a flight attendant for Charter Airlines, and worked also at Dugway Proving Ground and Deseret Test Center. On September 20, 1963 Lynne married the love of her life, Joel Ivan Orgill, in the Salt Lake City Temple. It was here in Salt Lake that the family they so cherished would start to grow with their first son, Philip. In 1971, Joel having graduated from BYU, they moved to Wisconsin where he would teach at the University. Along came yet another addition to the lives they were building with a second son, Jed. In 1974 her husband took work with John Deere & Co. and they headed to Iowa, where another son, Justin, and then a daughter, Kristin, would complete their little family circle. Before all the kids started school, Lynne worked at running a household and raising four small children. Sometimes with her husband out of town for business, she would have her hands quite full! But with mostly patience and gentleness, she led them with a loving and guiding hand, teaching them the importance of etiquette, respect, love, family and family leaf rides! Once all the kids were in school Lynne went to work for the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency as a Speech Pathologist Assistant. She loved working one on one with children and coming up with games to help them learn articulation and language. Lynne always loved to read, sew, do crossword puzzles and play board games. But her one true love, pride and joy was always her family. As her eldest sons went on to marry, this circle of love grew to their wives, who she loved as her own. And when the grandchildren started coming, well, the love grew and grew. Lynne absolutely adored her grandchildren. And the family that she has built loves and adores her. And always will. And will always miss her until we meet again. Lynne was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Joel Orgill; and infant grandson Leif Orgill. She is survived by four siblings: Carolyn Kyle Baer of California, Louise Lewis of Utah, Wendy (Kevin) Davis of Utah, and Kenneth (Robbi) Bell of Utah; four children: Philip (Lanea), Jed (Amy), Justin and Kristin, all of Colorado; and six wonderful grandchildren: Abby, Kylee, Samuel, Rhys, Belle and Lucy Orgill. Services for Lynne will be held on Monday, September 29, at 11 a.m., at the LDS chapel, 81 N. Church St, Grantsville. A visitation will be held 1 hour prior to services. Interment will be at the Grantsville City Cemetery.
