Monroe & Shirley Paxman

Brigham Young Academy Foundation Members, and Distinguished Honorary Alumni of Brigham Young High School. Monroe J. Paxman & Shirley Ann Brockbank Paxman. Shirley Paxman is now deceased. ~ ~ ~ ~ Although Monroe and Shirley Paxman did not attend BY High School, many of their children did. They did not teach at BYH, except by good example. They performed an instrumental role in saving the Brigham Young Academy building. "We grieved about it [the Brigham Young Academy block] being sold. I wrote lots of letters," remembers Shirley. "And when the lawn and trees were dying, my husband, Monroe, repaired the sprinkling system and we paid the water bill. For 25 years I've worked with every mayor and developer." Their leadership and perseverance have once again made the historic Academy Square a revered Provo landmark. Shirley Brockbank Paxman received her B.S. and M.S. from BYU in Child Development and Family Relations. She received her R.N. from Holy Cross Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. She taught Child Development at BYU and Nursing at Utah Valley State College, until 1979, when she left to help open the McCurdy Historical Doll Museum. The Paxmans are lifelong Provo residents. Monroe Paxman was a judge in 4th District Juvenile Court. He is a nationally prominent authority on juvenile court problems. He has taught many classes at BYU. He received BYU's Abraham O. Smoot Public Service Award. "When I recognize someone, I have to think twice about saying anything," he once said. "The context may be from my former courtroom, and some folks don't want to recognized for that." Monroe and Shirley Paxman have co-authored numerous magazine articles and several books. In 1942, Shirley married Monroe J. Paxman, who became a Juvenile Court Judge in Provo, Utah. They have seven children and twenty-four grandchildren. Shirley Paxman is an active member of the LDS Church and has served in all the Church auxiliary programs as teacher and officer.

[Provo Daily Herald, Saturday, December 19, 2015] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Shirley Ann Brockbank Paxman Obituary - 1919 ~ 2015. Shirley Ann Brockbank was born third child to Isaac and Elsie Booth Brockbank and grew up with her eight sisters at 59 West 500 North in Provo, Utah. She debuted on December 10, 1919 and died in her sleep on December 17, 2015, a week after her 96th birthday. She married Monroe J. Paxman on December 18, 1942 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They have lived in Wichita, Kansas; Salt Lake City; Reno, Nevada; Urbana, Illinois; Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany; Izmir, Turkey; Frankfurt, Germany; and Provo, where they spent most of their life together. Shirley was a registered nurse, an avid reader, a community organizer, a school board president, a traveler, a museum director, and she lived exuberantly. She once stood in front of a moving bulldozer to block it from demolishing Provo's Academy Square because she knew funding was on its way to save the building. Born with an abundance of energy and creative ideas, she always had a project or a cause. She enjoyed hosting gatherings and parties, creating magical experiences, writing books, working in historic preservation, giving speeches, and sharing her opinions. She was unconventional and ready to speak out, a strong, enthusiastic feminist, a mentor, and an advocate for the underprivileged. She trained at Holy Cross Hospital in Salt Lake City before her marriage and grew to love the Catholic sisters and the rosary. Her religious involvement was ecumenical. She served well all her life in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but sometimes referred to herself as Catholic Mormon and was involved with the Episcopal Church as well. She found God and truth in many places. Through it all, she expressed her love for and faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She drew on traditions from diverse religions and cultures as she and her husband Monroe raised their seven children. She celebrated holidays with gusto, created costumes, baked and decorated thousands of sugar cookies, belonged to various social clubs and historical societies, and included many people in her entertaining. Shirley lived by Gibran's words, "Work is love made visible." Her compassionate heart fueled her personal and civic service. She worked to make things better for people she cared about, whether they were family, immigrants, foreign diplomats, college students, or merely lonely. It was no small thing if Shirley was in your corner; her support was palpable. She and Pax loved to welcome people to their family cabin at Wildwood, let them use the inner tubes, swing on the swings, lie in the hammock, or play in the water, and Shirley cooked abundant meals to feed them. She hosted speakers and musical programs for groups of friends. She and Monroe served on several local and university advisory boards. Shirley frequently laughed at the humor in life and was a good storyteller; she was no stranger to hyperbole and often exaggerated her children's good qualities and accomplishments. She was also a master of typographical errors in her weekly family letters. She and Pax have been generous grandparents who took care of kids with aplomb and enjoyment. Wet feet and dirty hands weren't worth worrying about; craft projects, hammering nails into wood, hiking, and imaginative play were encouraged. A capable woman of many talents, Shirley sewed, knitted, sketched, decorated, and quilted; she refinished furniture and collected antiques as well as Noah's arks, nativities, Santa Clauses, family traditions, ideas, articles, and books. She and Pax hiked for decades and co-authored a Utah Valley hiking guide. Lifelong supporters of the arts, they attended concerts, lectures, and plays regularly until Shirley fell and broke two vertebrae three weeks before her death. As her short-term memory faded, one of her most common statements was, "We count our blessings." Her next line was always, "I still have my husband!" A few years ago she said, "I have very few regrets. I've had stability, excitement--a fantastic life." We love our mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, and her passion for life will continue to inspire us. Preceding Shirley in death were her sisters Ila Peterson, Helen Weech, Elinor Brimhall, Pat Fillmore, Kay Webber, her daughter Mary Beth McGee, and her grandson David Thomas. She is survived by her dream-facilitating husband Monroe "Pax", her sisters Carol Olson, Nancy Livingston, Joyce Beazer, and her children John and Petrina Lee Poy Paxman (Montreal), Carolyn and Marion T. Bentley (Logan), David and Kathryn Pope Hoopes Paxman (Mapleton), Nancy and Peter Thomas (Sun Valley), Annette and Scott Bowen (Seattle), and Susie and David Hatch (Chicago) as well as by numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Visitation will be held Monday, December 21 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Berg Mortuary, 185 East Center Street, Provo, and Tuesday, December 22 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Provo Peak Third Ward, 510 East 200 North, Provo. The funeral will begin Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. at the same church.

[Salt Lake Tribune, December 19, 2015] Source. ~ ~ ~ ~ JUDGE PAXMAN'S OBITUARY: Born to relish and appreciate life, Monroe J. Paxman arrived on April 7, 1919 to William and Achsa Eggertsen Paxman in Provo, Utah. He was fourth of five siblings. As a child he raised rabbits and learned how to work with his hands. He was a bright, outgoing person who was curious and imaginative. Monroe attended Provo schools and served an LDS mission in England and, due to the onset of WWII, in the North Central States. He was part of a traveling vocal quartet in his mission. After his return, he worked at Culver Aircraft in Wichita, Kansas, to help the war effort. He received his JD from the University of Utah. Following law school he practiced law with his father-in-law, Isaac Brockbank, and was subsequently appointed juvenile court judge of the Fourth District Court, a position he held for 16 years. In 1969, he was appointed Executive Director of the National Council of Juvenile Court Judges, and the family moved to Reno. In 1972-73, he was a visiting professor at the University of Illinois Law School in Champaign-Urbana and afterward taught at BYU in the political science department until his retirement. He adored teaching and was the recipient of the Abraham O. Smoot Community Service Award. Monroe was also awarded two Fulbright grants to implement innovative judicial services in Europe. He married Shirley Brockbank Paxman in the Salt Lake Temple in 1942; together they had seven children and created a magical home environment. They nurtured people of all ages as they entertained in their homes. They worked along with other Provoans to preserve the BY Academy building (which now houses Provo Library). Known as Uncle Pax to several generations of kids at Wildwood in Provo Canyon, he invited them to float tubes on the creek, swing on his handmade swings, or walk across the creek on his rope monkey bridge. He created spaces for kids to have fun and use their own imaginations: tree houses, an attic with a soda fountain, play sets. He was a dream facilitator, happy to lend his many skills to help people achieve their dreams, whether building a boat out of scrap wood or getting into graduate school. He served as a Scout leader for many years Pax had an eye for beauty and enjoyed the arts. He grew flowers, planted trees, learned the crafts of wrought iron, stained glass, and wood carving, and built a cabin with his family. He was a wonderful storyteller. Pax and Shirley attended performances at BYU and UVU for decades and served together on the UVU Humanities Board. They loved to travel and lived in England, Germany, and Turkey, where Monroe taught with the University of Maryland’s extension program. Pax was a lawyer, an electrician, a plumber, a hiker, a singer, and in his eighties he took up genealogy and watercolor painting. He compiled several books of family history. He wrote impromptu tributes at special events and was a master of gratitude and expressed appreciation. His was a life of service, positive effort, love pats, and encouragement. He had deep faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ and its power to improve and enrich lives. Preceding him in death are his wife Shirley, their daughter Mary McGee, and their grandson David Thomas. He is survived by his children John and Petrina Lee Poy-Paxman (Montreal), Carolyn and Marion Bentley (Logan), David and Kathryn Pope Hoopes Paxman (Mapleton), Nancy and Peter Thomas (Sun Valley), Annette and Scott Bowen (Seattle) and Susie and David Hatch (Seattle), as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at 12:30 p.m., Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Academy Square (Provo Library), 550 N. University Ave., Provo, Utah. Friends may call at the LDS Chapel at 502 East 200 North, Provo, Utah, Friday, September 29 from 6-8:00 p.m. and at the library Saturday from 10:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. prior to services.

Jaynann & Dean Payne

Jaynann was a Brigham Young Academy Foundation Member. Dean Payne and Jaynann Morgan Payne were BYH parents. OBITUARY: Dean Wilford Payne: The Dean Payne family mourns the passing of their beloved husband, father, and grandfather who returned home with honor on Wednesday March 15th 2006, from the effects of a pulmonary embolism. Dean Wilford Payne, was born October 17, 1926 in Washington D.C., to Wilford Houghton Payne and Blanche Ellsworth Payne. After serving a two-year LDS mission to the Northern States, he studied at Brigham Young University where he met Jaynann Morgan. They were married on June 29, 1948 in the Salt Lake Temple. He completed his Jurisprudence Doctorate at the University of Utah in 1952, and practiced law in Provo, Utah with his father-in-law, J. Rulon Morgan for many years. He was a member of the Utah State Bar Association for over 40 years. He relished his various calls to serve in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In every calling and especially as the patriarch of his family, he magnified his priesthood and found great joy blessing others. He held positions in his home ward, BYU and MTC wards including that of bishop, counselor, high councilman, and Stake Mission President. Dean and Jaynann served a public affairs mission in the Philippines for two years from 1995-1997, and just completed a two year hosting-mission in August at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake City. He was active in civic organizations, some of which included the Boy Scouts of America, the Red Cross, and as County Chairman of the Republican Committee, and President of the George Albert Smith chapter of the Sons of the Utah Pioneers. Dean honored his pioneer heritage and loved telling stories of his ancestors. Dean was a lifelong student and the children thought of him as a walking encyclopedia of fascinating information about almost any subject but especially history, geology, science, the scriptures, language, music and fine arts. He conducted early morning and late-night scripture study and organized unusual family home evenings. He loved traveling and people of other cultures, hence, he gallivanted about the world with his wife and children soaking in all the history and culture in what the children called "hysterical pilgrimages." Dean and Jaynann welcomed into their home and hearts countless young people from all over the world who were in need and who lived with them for months or sometimes years and were treated as their own children. The family has many "adoptees," still beloved, with whom they maintain contact. Dean was a great collector! Not only of children, but of coins, stamps, books, rocks, paintings and music. He loved to bathe the children and read to them at night and tuck them into bed. He was witty and had a great sense of humor. He loved to wrestle, joke, tease and banter with his children and grandchildren. He dearly loved his 69 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren and enjoyed teasing them. When the children would ask how much something cost, he would reply "Oh, eleventy two fifty plus tax." Or if they asked where he was going he would say "I'm going to see a man about a double bird dog." Dean was an exemplary family man and only the Savior took precedence over his wife and children. His testimony of Jesus Christ and His Atonement was always a beacon to his family. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Jaynann, and twelve children: Susan Carole A.K.A. Shoshanna Rose (Stephen) Miller, Medford, OR; John (Edie) Payne, Provo, UT; Janice (David) Hymas, Highland, UT; Evelyn (Robert) Naylor, Fremont, CA; Wilford (Jill) Payne, Aloha, OR; Edward (Karen) Payne, Chandler, AZ; Benjamin (Heather) Payne, Gridley, CA; Nancy Escobar Herrera, Provo; Thomas (Louise) Payne, Springville; Julie (Ben) Paz, Springville; Rachelle (Jason) Baum, Pearland, TX; Rosalie (Jonathan) Lines, Yuma, AZ. Dean is also survived by his siblings: Marjorie (Edwin) Seely, Louise (Bill) Wilhite, David (Elodie) Payne, Kathleen (John) Benson and Helen (Robert) Asay and a sister-in-law, Jennie Payne, whose husband, Kay, Dean's older brother, preceded him in death. Funeral services will be held Monday, March 20 at 11 a.m. in the Oak Hills Ninth Ward (Hillside Chapel) on 1960 North 1500 East, Provo, Utah. A viewing will be held at the church on Sunday from 6-8 p.m. and again Monday at the church from 9:30 to 10:45 preceding the funeral. Interment will be at the Provo City Cemetery.
