1933 ~ 2017
Mom, Loy Neff, passed away peacefully in her sleep on the
afternoon of July 8, 2017. Her family was blessed to be
present and to have sweet conversation with her before she
drifted away from us into the arms of other loved ones.
Loy was born on April 24, 1933 in Sandy, Utah and raised
by her loving mother, Mary Meyer, and her dear Grandpa,
She loved her childhood, wandering the canal banks, playing
with her dogs and other beloved animal friends, enjoying
her beautiful surroundings of home and the Mill.
She loves nature and all of God’s creatures, and
instilled a respect and love for these things in her children.
Loy studied art and music while living in Germany where
she learned the Master’s style of oil painting, and
to play the piano beautifully. Her children cherish her
elegant paintings and the lasting memories.
She is extremely creative with a keen eye for detail. The
many friends and family she entertained in her homes will
never forget her beautifully presented, delicious cuisine
and decorating extraordinaire.
She is a captivating storyteller, and possesses qualities
that draw people to her. We have been told of lives that
were changed by her candor and insightful advice.
Mom, you are loved by many and will be missed, but we are
so happy that you have flown beyond the constraints of this
earthly existence, and know someday we will all be together
