Vicki Marie Argyle

August 28, 1948~February 16, 2022

On Wednesday February 16, 2022, our beautiful  mother Vicki Marie Argyle (73), passed peacefully through the veil, surrounded by her loved ones by natural causes.

She was born August 28, 1948 in Rigby, Idaho to Lucein and Marie Young. She was the sixth of nine children. While attending Rigby High School, she enjoyed dancing as a Troyette on the drill team. After graduating from high school, she attended Ricks College. Her independent spirit then took her to Utah, where she started working at Hill Air Force Base near Layton, Utah as a secretary. It was there she met her first husband, Howard White Luther and they married on February 14th, 1968 in Tiburon California. After a few moves they settled in Logan, Utah. During their 14-year marriage they had 4 children: Cassandra, Melinda, Brian and Emily. They later divorced. She then accepted a secretarial position at Morton Thiokol, working for the Air Force. She, as the secretary head and was well known for her impressive speed typing skill. She found working in the Aerospace field exciting and fulfilling. As a single mom, she worked hard to help provide for her family and no matter how tough the situation, she always found a way. She also took great pride in being selected as a book editor and typist for several professors at Utah State University where she often worked on the weekends.

Eventually she met Scott C Argyle, at a church dance. It was love at first sight and they soon were sealed for time and all eternity in the Logan Temple on April 16, 1989. They settled and grew their family in Layton, Utah. Together they had two children Rachael and Ethan. During the course of their marriage Scott and Vicki became foster parents. As a family, they cared for 14 different foster children. She felt inspired to expand the family by adopting Lyle, Theresa, Tanesha and Melissa. Mom knew they belonged in our family.

Mom had a gift for opening her heart to those who needed a place to call home and she was beloved by all. She was an avid gardener and loved all flowers and plants. Her gardens were always thoughtfully designed and beautiful. She was a lover of animals and never found a stray that she didn’t take in. She had a love for cooking & it was one of many ways she expressed her love to all her entered her home. Mom epitomized the phrase “Go Big or Go Home” with most aspects of her life and her meals were no exception to this. Her Sunday & holiday meals were legendary and there was always more than enough for everyone. Gift giving was most definitely her love language, and her children, grandchildren and fur babies were continually the beneficiaries.

She was a faithful member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and found joy in serving in various capacities. Especially those working with children. She was a great storyteller and could captivate the attention of children naturally. This talent led her to hobbies that brought smiles to many childrens faces, quite literally, as she became a very talented professional face painter and balloon artist (while simultaneously sporting a hot pink wig, flowered apron and bloomers as “Tizzy the Clown”).

She left a great legacy of family, sacrifice and generosity. She is greatly missed.

Vicki is preceded in death by her husband, Scott C Argyle; Her parents, Lucein and Marie Young; brother, Garen Young; sister JoAnn Boyce; and grandson, Marshall Brian Luther. She is survived by her 10 children: Cassandra Luther, Melinda (John) Rasband, Brian (Maridee) Luther, Emily (Weston) Hall, Rachael (Misha) Petersen, Ethan Argyle, Lyle Argyle, Melissa Leal, Theresa Argyle and Tanesha (Leo) Garcia; 27 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren .
