Joseph Thayne Stokes
Penrose, UT: Our sweet dad, Joseph Thayne Stokes, 76, passed away peacefully at his home on July 24, 2001, due to complications of heart and kidney failure. He was born December 28, 1924, in Bothwell, Utah, a son of James Leo and Mable Nina Anderson Stokes. He attended Bothwell Elementary and graduated from Bear River High School. He also attended the Agricultural College in Logan, UT. He was a veteran of WW II, serving in the United States Navy from 1943 to 1946. On March 27, 1947, he married his sweetheart, Lorna Lee Shuman, in the Logan LDS Temple. They spent 51 years together. She passed away on January 5, 1999. They lived in Bothwell and Colton, OR before settling in Penrose in 1954, where they farmed and raised turkeys. Together they reared five beautiful daughters and taught them the value of hard work as they labored together on their family farm. He was especially proud of his family. He loved to listen to them sing and harmonize together. He was a member of the Thatcher-Penrose LDS 2nd Ward, where he held various positions. He served in two bishoprics and sat on the High Council. He was instrumental in two remodels of the Thatcher-Penrose church house and the design of the ballpark/cook-shack behind the church. Dad enjoyed helping others, especially in their times of need. He worked hard all his life and reaped the benefits thereof. He was a devoted husband and father who loved his family and enjoyed time spent with his grandchildren on the farm. He will be missed. He is survived by his five daughters, Susan Lee (Ron) Reeve, Brigham City; Sherry Lyn (Bob) Cagle, North Las Vegas, NV; Sally Jo Stokes, San Diego, CA; Sandra Kay "Summer" (Joel) Peterson, Idaho Falls, ID; Stephanie Anne (Lane) Petersen, Tremonton; 12 grandchildren, Wendy, Ryan, Jason, Jeff, Jamie, Harmony, Stuart, Kamron, Hayley, Tia, Katie, Mackenzie; two great grandchildren, Ariana and Wyler; brothers Deloris and Jack Stokes. He was preceded in death by his wife, parents and his brother Owen Stokes. Funeral services will be held Saturday, July 28, 2001, 12:00 noon at the Thatcher-Penrose LDS Chapel, 11475 West 10400 North. Family and friends may call Fri. July 27th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Rogers and Taylor Funeral Home, 111 North 100 East, Tremonton and Sat. July 28th from 10:15 to 11:40 a.m. at the Church. Interment will be in the Bothwell Valley View Cemetery. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Utah Heritage Hospice for helping us honor our father's wish to pass on comfortably at his home. Their love, support and words of encouragement were priceless.
