Laura Daisy Weaver Boyce, our warm caring , beautiful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother and friend to many, on September 11, 2022, was lifted softly and peacefully by angels and placed in the loving arms of her Heavenly Father, with all of her family near.
Laura was born on April 25, 1928 in Belville, Kansas to loving parents Leo Andrew and Lucille Sarah Liberty Weaver, who preceded her in death. She had three sisters two of which preceded her in death, Doris Killen and Leona Kendall, and sister Darlene who resides in Washington. Laura moved from Kansas to Ogden, Utah in 1942, where she attended school. In 1946 she moved to Spokane, Washington where she graduated. After several moves, she returned to the place that held her heart, Layton, Utah, where she found a second family she loved dearly, the Boyce family. It was then that she met the love of her life Preston Leon Boyce, and they were married on June 29, 1950. They have been loving companions and friends to one another for 72 years, which were the most glorious years together. Their love brought them four children, Scott Boyce (Debbie), Jolene Chowning (Richard), Terry Myers (Kent), and Brett Boyce (Debra), an awesome Big Family who all adored her, including 15 grandchildren and their spouses, 37 great-grandchildren and spouses, and six great-great-grandchildren.
Mom was our staple, she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on June 29, 1959, in which she loved serving. Mom was always the first to help anyone in need. She worked at the Kaysville Drug Store, Sugar Factory, Clover Club, Navy Base and School Lunch. She loved making and selling jewelry, collected dolls, and spent 30 years going to Quartzsite, Arizona for the winters with her loving husband and many friends.
Laura was a beautiful person and meant the world to many. Her family was always the most important thing she lived for. Her joyful and love filled voice whenever we called, always started our day with a bright note, she will be missed, but she will forever be in our hearts and thoughts. Until we meet again.
Laura wanted her voice to be heard even after she left to begin her heavenly journey. These are her words:
I love my dearest husband
You made it all worthwhile
Thank you, children and spouses,
Thank you to all of my dear family
Thanks to the Boyce Clan for adopting me into your family, it changed my life.
Thank you to all my dear friends and the love you brought to my life.
It’s been a wonderful ride and I love you all so much.
Our heart filled thanks to Dignity Hospice who became family while caring for our mother, she was thankful for you and your loving care and listening ears. Special thanks to Penny, Edee and Justin for always going the extra mile.
