May 19, 1939 - June 14, 2014
Kalyn Peck Secretan, age 75, of Pleasant Grove Utah, died on June 14, 2014. On March 6th of this year, Kalyn was diagnosed with a brain cancer, after surgery and a stroke, she opted not to undergo treatment. She passed away in her home in Pleasant Grove. Kalyn was born, May 19, 1939 in American Fork, Utah, to NS and Beda Peck of Lehi. Kalyn spent her childhood in Lehi surrounded by family and friends. She graduated from Lehi High School and has kept close contact with many of the friends she made there. On October 6, 1956 she met Robert Secretan on a blind date. The two were married nearly a year later on September 12, 1957 in the Salt Lake Temple. As a mother to 7 children, Kalyn was a positive example to them in all that she did. She was always looking for opportunities to serve and selflessly give what she had to others. She always saw the very best in people and tried to help bring that out in them. Though her primary role was that of a mother, Kalyn enjoyed many different activities. She sold AVON for nearly 30 years and loved the relationships she built doing so. She also wrote news articles for the Pleasant Grove Review for many years and was always looking to chase after the next big story- even if that meant chasing down the PG fire trucks. She served in many church callings over the years, but always said that working with the Young Women was her favorite. As a grandmother, Kalyn had 20 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. Through her example, Kalyn taught them many things, including dessert can and should be eaten first, no wedding or funeral should be missed, everything should be a party-with cake, and that family is the most important thing. In nearly 57 years of marriage, both Bob and Kalyn endured many trials, especially with their health. For nearly 12 years Kalyn suffered with Rheumatoid Arthritis and helped Bob with the challenges he faced with MS. Through it all, they stuck together and they served one another. Bob left this life 2 months ago and he and his sweet wife are together again, now and forever. Kalyn is survived by her children, Kyle [Katie] Secretan, Sheri [Jef] Johnson, Kent [Lavonne] Secretan, Karen [Mark] Schumann, Julie [Lance] Strouse, Cary [Jechelle] Secretan, and Jenny Secretan, her two sisters, Kathy [Dave] Cox, Shauna [Kevin] Peterson and one brother, Ken [Barbara] Peck. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Secretan, parents, NS and Beda Peck, and two brothers, Dennis Peck, Ron Peck. Funeral Services will be held 11:00 a.m., Friday, June 20, 2014 at the Pleasant Grove LDS Church at 425 E Grove Creek Dr. (500 N.), Pleasant Grove, UT. A viewing will be held Thursday, June 19, 2014, from 6-8:00p.m. at the church and prior to services from 9:30-10:45 a.m. Interment at the Lehi City Cemetery.
