Helen James Bowcutt

Beloved mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend who graced our lives for so many years passed away in the company of family on December 3, 2020.

Born July 25, 1926, in Ogden, Utah, Helen was the sixth child of Leona Pearl Stoker and Albert ­­­James.

On September 6, 1946, she married the love of her life, Vern Matthew Bowcutt. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Helen was a devoted member of the Orchard 1st Ward. She taught grade school for 25 years for the Alpine School District.

She is survived by her daughter, Kristen Bowcutt; her son, Jon Bowcutt; six grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and two great-great grandchildren.

Helen will be remembered for her unconditional love of family, her service to students and community, her faith, and her love of travel. Her family will carry fond memories of summers together in Yellowstone, where her father built a cabin in 1949.

Helen’s family would like to thank the staff at Summerfield Retirement and her RN Nate Manzanares for their caregiving.

Interment will be held in the Roy City Stoker Memorial Cemetery, Saturday, December 12, at 1:00 p.m., under COVID safety precautions.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial tree can be planted and condolences sent to the family at

Sending love and comfort from the Bartonek family to our dear cousins and their families. Helen was an amazing woman, generous and kind - not to mention whip smart, which is a trait of the James family women :). She was like an older sister to my Dad and I know he has so many special memories of her over the years. I too hold many fond memories of which I hold close to my heart and feel blessed to have known her. May she rejoice and rejoin Vern and her family in peace. Sharing a couple of memories that my Dad had in his collection. Amy, Gwen, & Jim

Rest in peace. Aunt Helen was a great lady. She will be happily reunited with Vern and everyone else. Love y'all. - Parker

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar: Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come From God, who is our home: What though the radiance which was once so bright Be now for ever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; We will grieve not, rather find Strength in what remains behind; In the primal sympathy Which having been must ever be; In the soothing thoughts that spring Out of human suffering; In the faith that looks through death, In years that bring the philosophic mind. The Clouds that gather round the setting sun Do take a sober colouring from an eye That hath kept watch o'er man's mortality; Another race hath been, and other palms are won. Thanks to the human heart by which we live, Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, and fears, To me the meanest flower that blows can give Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears. Excerpts from Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH
