Dorothy Kay Justensen

April 14, 1940 — January 25, 2024

Dorothy Kay Justensen of West Point, Utah passed away on January 25, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. Born April 14, 1940, to Kirtley and Erma Tucker in Price Utah, later moved to Kaysville and was raised there.

She married James Larry Justensen of Bountiful on November 18, 1955. The marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. 

Dorothy is survived by her husband Larry Justensen, her 7 children and spouses, Scott (Michael), Doug (Laurie), Brad (Carolyn), Brent (Julie), Troy (Shelley), Melinda (Ben), Clayton (Krista), sisters, Rhea, Margie, and Pat, 30 grandchildren, 3 step-grandchildren, 48 great-grandchildren. 

She was preceded in death by her sister Donna, her parents, Kirtley and Erma Tucker, 4 grandchildren, Kent, Taylor, Ava, and Stephen.

Dorothy’s entire life and her most valued treasures can be summed up in two words, “Her Family”. Her children were everything to her! Her kids, grandkids and great grandkids never missed a Christmas without receiving some small token of her love in the form of a small gift of some kind. She wanted each and every member of her family to know how much she loved them and how often she thought of them.

As her children were growing up, she and dad would always take the kids to see grandparents and kept close relationships and visits to their cousins’ homes. This was one of the greatest gifts “Mom and Dad” gave their kids, showed by example that “family” is what really is most important.

Dorothy’s second most important relationship was with her sisters. All the cousins grew up loving their aunts and uncles as well as their cousins. This was the example and legacy Dorothy passed to her children and their children.

Dorothy also continually showed her love for her daughter and son-in laws. With such a large family and so many different personalities and backgrounds, she always let differences fade and love and acceptance prevailed. “Mom” was a living example of true Christlike love for her family.

She leaves a huge void for us here on earth but the reunion she has experienced with her parents and her dear sweet grandchildren who have passed and now are in her arms makes her passing just a tiny bit better for us left behind. We look forward to that time when we will all see her kind loving face once again. Farewell for now our dear sweet Mother and Grandmother.
