Layton, Utah

Louise Marie Chamberlain passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, at the Fairfield Village Center in Layton Utah on February 26, 2023 at the age of 83.

She was born November 28, 1939, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Grant and Ida Leonard. She met her sweetheart, Robert Ellis Chamberlain, while attending a University of Utah student ward and was later married on August 18, 1967 in the Salt Lake Temple. They enjoyed 55 wonderful years together. Louise graduated from BYU with a composite degree in Homemaking Education and a master’s degree from Kansas State University in Family Finance. Her thesis was used to pass the Truth in Lending bill which required the disclosure of the Annual Percentage Rate (APR). She taught school at South High in Utah, Kansas State University, BYU, University of Utah, and Woods Cross High School.

Bob and Louise purchased their house in Bountiful in 1970 where they lived for over 50 years.  She enjoyed traveling with her husband with trips to several states in the Midwest, Holy Land, Egypt, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Hawaii and Disneyland. In addition, she enjoyed reading, visiting with people, music, plays, and family get-togethers. She won the KSL Teacher Feature award while at Woods Cross High School for her service and influence on her students. She was well-known for her pastry palace cookies that were requested by missionaries all over the world.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served diligently in many callings including a counselor in the Stake Relief Society Presidency and the Relief Society President at the Life Care Center.

She is survived by her Husband Robert Chamberlain; daughter Sheree (John) Nash, sons Michael (Chanda) Chamberlain, Eric (Lisa) Chamberlain and Mark (Stacia) Chamberlain, brothers Richard (Lucille) Leonard, John (Susan) Leonard, and sister Ida Jean (Merrill) Muir.  She has 16 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her father Grant Leonard, mother Ida Reichmann Leonard.

The family would like to thank Fairfield Village Center staff and Inspiration Home Health & Hospice for their kindness and care they provided to Louise.
