Joyce Voss Rose

August 10, 1933 — May 21, 2023


Joyce Voss Rose, 89, passed away Sunday, May 21st, 2023 at home in South Weber, Utah, with her family by her side.


She was born at home on August 10th, 1933 in South Weber, Utah, the 11th of 12 children, to Emerson Levi Voss and Anna Angeline Steed. She was raised in South Weber and attended and graduated in “Class of 1951”, from Davis High School, in Kaysville, Utah.


She married Farrell K Rose, March 25th, 1952 in the Logan LDS Temple in Logan, Utah and was blessed with five boys, Farrell Bart, Guy Emerson, Jeffrey Norman, Todd Mitchell, and Nolan Reese. They lived in Washington Terrace until 1968 and then moved back to her childhood home in South Weber, Utah where they finished raising their family. In 1997, her and Farrell moved to Mesquite, Nevada where they lived for 13 years before returning to Utah just before Farrell’s passing in 2010. She then returned home to South Weber, where she lived with her son Guy until she passed away.


She served in the Relief Society for the LDS Church and spent many years serving friends, neighbors and family. She also opened her home to sponsor a Navajo girl for education and a Vietnamese family immigrating to America.


Joyce had many nieces, nephews and extended family members that she loved dearly. She made an extra effort to stay in touch with them all and often shared fascinating stories about their lives. Family history was very important to her and she spent many years researching and compiling information.


Joyce was very artistic and talented. She was involved in the quilt guild for many years and made many beautiful quilts. She learned to water color and oil paint and went on to teach a painting class. She also sold some of her paintings. She loved to bake cookies and rolls and made all kinds of candies, including suckers which she sold to local vendors. She participated in early morning water aerobics and eventually taught the classes herself.


Growing up in South Weber, Joyce learned to live off the garden and the farm. They used many different methods to preserve their food to provide for their family. The garden and canning remained an important part of her life right to the very end. She also had a great love for flower gardens. She loved rose bushes, poppies, and many other wildflowers as well as the old lilac bushes on the property.


She is survived by two of her sons Guy Emerson (Sandy) and Jeffery Norman as well as four grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Farrell, three of her five sons: Todd Mitchell, Nolan Reese, and Farrell Bart, and her parents as well as her 11 siblings.
