Joyce Williams Scott
March 1, 1934 ~ September 19, 2012
Joyce Williams Scott passed from this life Wednesday, September 19, 2012. She was freed from the bonds of an extended illness to join her sweetheart in heaven. Joyce was born March 1, 1934, the last of eleven children. She was the daughter of Robert Elvin and Annie Jenkins Williams. She attended school in Malad and graduated from Malad High School and LDS Seminary in 1952. She loved learning and participating in all activities by serving in the student government, cheerleading, singing and band.
She married her sweetheart, Larry Dean Scott, June 6, 1952 in Tremonton, Utah. They later solemnized their marriage in the Logan LDS Temple. They had two children, Dean and Christine. They moved their family to North Ogden, Utah, in 1960 where she lived the remainder of her life. She had a deep faith in God and was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many positions in her Church throughout the years.
Joyce had a strong work ethic and worked in many different fields through her career. Her favorite jobs included working for Mountain Bell and Allen Drug while in Malad, Wasatch Floral for many years in Utah and later retired from Wells Fargo Bank. Her life’s work however, was her family! She loved them dearly and lived each day in service and caring for them. Her devotion was unfailing and we count it as our greatest gift. Joyce loved to laugh and had a fun sense of humor and quick wit. She had a smile and kind word for everyone she encountered.
Joyce is survived by her daughter, Christine Scott Allen; daughter-in-law, Fay (John) Dvorak; grandchildren, Stephanie (Jason) Sewell, Jenny Scott, Melanie (Kasey) Hancock, Melissa (Josh) Bailey, Jordan Allen; great-grandchildren “her greatest loves” Dylan, Oliver, Alexis, Emilyn, Brynn, Kaitlyn, Kylee and Bowe; her sweet nieces that helped with her care and her large extended family.
