Lila Coburn Obituary

With hearts full of both gratitude for her life and sorrow for her departure, we announce the passing of Lila Pamela Byington Coburn, a cherished woman who had a deep love for her family and the Savior. She was born in Downey, Idaho, on December 11th, 1932, the youngest child of Royal Elliot and Ethel Lovisa Byington. Lila passed to the other side of the veil on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024, in Brigham City, Utah, at her home.

Lila grew up in Downey, Idaho until she was in the third grade. From there her family moved to Grace, Idaho where she skipped a grade and advanced to the fifth grade. She and her parents moved to Wellsville, Utah  where they lived for several years. Later Lila and her Mom moved to Brigham City, Utah after her dad passed. In Brigham she was blessed with an instant family when she married her sweetheart and eternal companion Ronald Coburn, who had three children she treasured and knew from the time they were born. Lila married Ron in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on March 1, 1968.

Lila was a quick learner and a woman of many talents. At a young age she began to cook, one of her favorite things to make was pudding. Her beautiful penmanship was a testament to her love for the written word and she was a faithful journal writer and reader. Her creativity found expression in the beautiful quilts she crafted for her loved ones. For Christmas one year she made each of her children and grandchildren quilts that they treasure.

Each year, while the kids were growing up, the family went on vacation to several different destinations. With some of their regular stops being Lava Hot Springs and Island Park. This is pretty ironic since traveling made Lila car sick, but family time was very important to both Ron and Lila. Once the kids were raised Ron and Lila continued their vacations. One of her favorite things was to go for a drive and explore different areas with her dear husband.

Lila was the President of the Box Elder Chapter of Credit Women International and traveled yearly while she worked at the Credit Bureau. She also worked as a Record Clerk at Thiokol where she retired.

Lila was a faithful daughter of God. She enjoyed service in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, her favorite callings were: Young Women’s Advisor, Nursery Leader, and Librarian. Her dedication to her faith was unwavering. She saw miracles in her life, especially when Ron was in an accident that paralyzed him from the waist down.

Lila is survived by her daughter Jullie Jones (Rory Pence), her son, Dan (Pam) Coburn,  and daughter-in-law, Brandie Coburn, her ten grandchildren, and fifteen great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Ron Coburn, her son, Jon Coburn, two grandchildren, her parents and siblings, many beloved nieces and nephews and dear friends. Her loss is felt deeply by her loved ones, but her memory will continue on.

The family would like to give special thanks to Atlas Hospice for their care and service. Dr. Lynn Beard at Medical Arts Center Clinic, Lynn Larsen at the Ogden Clinic, and friends of the Brigham City 19th Ward.
