Vellis Cottle Record Salway, 86, was born in Trenton, Utah and was raised in a family of 15 children.
Vellis married Joseph Record in 1945 and they raised six children. In 1980, two years after Joe’s passing, she married Harold Salway and became his missionary companion and stepmother to his five children.
Vellis lived a life dedicated to service to others as a professional genealogist, a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, a pianist extraordinaire and, most importantly, a mom and grandma.
Her faith and never-ending smile brought her and all those fortunate enough to be near her joy.
Services will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1375 Lockhaven Drive in Keizer. Interment will be at the Mountain View Cemetery in Cottonwood Heights, Utah. Arrangements by Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service.
