FERRON- Betty Jane Luce, age 82, returned to our Heavenly Father on July 29, 2008. Betty was born Feb. 12, 1926 in Seattle, Wash. to William and Sarah Galbraith Birkett.

She married William D. Luce on June 10, 1943 in Everett, Wash., and their marriage was solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple on Feb. 14, 1986.

Betty's final days were spent where she wanted to be, in her Ferron home, surrounded by family and friends and in the company of their dog, Rosie.

Betty grew up in Seattle and Kenmore, Wash. where she met and married her husband, Bill. Betty and Bill moved to Southern California and raised their small family on Bill's father's farm.

Betty loved to dance and she and Bill spent many evenings at Lawrence Welk dances. Betty and her friend, Gracie, would dress up in petty coats large enough to let her son Steve hide under. After moving to Las Vegas in 1961 Betty worked for Clark County Juvenile Probation for 17 years. Her many years as a counselor touched untold young girls lives and certainly had a lasting effect.

After retirement Betty and Bill moved to Ferron where they became active members of the community. They volunteered together for eight years in the Manti Temple. Betty had a passion for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as sewing, crocheting, drawing and owls. She was always willing to spend time talking with family and friends and will be missed very much.

She is survived by her husband, William D. Luce, Ferron; children, Sharon (David) Owens, Ferron; Michele (Wilford) Hanson, Athens, Texas; Steven Luce, Ferron; Mark (Jami) Luce, Ferron; 18 grandchildren; 32 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her parents, William and Sarah Birkett; infant sister; and grandson, Charles E. Owens.

Funeral services were held Saturday, Aug. 2, 2008, 11 a.m., Ferron LDS Stake Center. Viewing was held from 9:30-10:45 a.m. immediately preceding the services. Interment was in the Ferron City Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price.
