Deanne Larsen Woolstenhulme
March 1, 1954 ~ December 24, 2021
Deanne Larsen Woolstenhulme passed away peacefully from cancer on Christmas Eve 2021 at 6:06 am with her family around her.
She was born in the Ogden area and raised in Pleasant View, Utah with Ruth Ann Rhees and Vern Larsen. She was the oldest of seven children and an adopted brother. She was raised faithfully in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and chose to continue to strengthen her relationship with Christ throughout her life.
She graduated from Weber High School Class in 1972 and started classes at Utah State University, but left after two semesters to pursue a lifelong passion: attending beauty school. Later, she went on a mission for her church at the Catania Mission in Italy. Her missionary work extended throughout her life into her daily life. She’s influenced so many lives, even though she’s only seen you once in a grocery line. You mattered to her! You were one of his favorites.
On a snowmobile trip after her mission, she met the love of her life Royce B Woolstenhulme. They were married for time and all eternity on June 25, 1981 in the Idaho Falls temple. They moved several times before settling in Royce’s family home in beautiful Teton Valley, Idaho, where they raised their six wonderful children.
Deanne has held many different positions within the LDS Church. She served in Relief Society, as a Sunday school teacher and in Primary. However, her preferred way of serving was teaching youth in the Young Women’s Program.
In May 2013, she received an incentive she needed to help her parents in Utah. She was a true pioneer. She left everything and everyone she loved to come and help them. Royce followed her eight months later. She looked after them until the death of her mother, Ruth Ann, in 2017 and Deanne began her career as a paraprofessional at Lomond View Elementary. She loved being with these children and the friends she met there.
In October 2021, after his father’s funeral, his health began to decline. She had entered and left the hospital with various complications and was eventually diagnosed with cancer. Yet that did not stop her from serving. She enjoyed meeting her new nurses and quickly becoming friends with them.
Deanne is survived by her best friend and eternal companion, Royce Woolstenhulme; her six children, Josh (Elise) Woolstenhulme, Micah (Marilee) Woolstenhulme, Seth (Courtney) Woolstenhulme, Serenity (Matt) Stewart, Crystal (Spenser) Riches, Ethan (Amy) Woolstenhulme, and 15 step grandchildren. She is also survived by her siblings, Dale (Unhui) Larsen, Brent (Ronna) Larsen, Sandee (Dan) Mann, Sheri (Don) Petersen, Jan (Paul) Tribe, David (Becky) Larsen; her brother-in-law, Kenley (Carol) Woolstenhulme; sister-in-law, Sue Beard and several nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents, her in-laws, her grandparents, her brother-in-law, Léon Barbe; niece, Nicole Petersen Prentice and her beautiful angel granddaughter, Adalyn Grace Woolstenhulme; and many other angels that she now embraces.
