Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Joyce Young Horne, returned unexpectedly to her Father-in-Heaven September 22, 1998 due to an auto accident.
Born first of two children on February 19, 1938, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Genevieve Grover and Henry Free Young. She was one of the youngest great-granddaughters of Pres. Brigham Young. She graduated from East High School and attended the University of Utah. She married Jonathan H. Horne, March 23, 1959.A celebrated domestic chef, she graduated from gourmet cooking schools in New York City and Chicago from 1960 to 1965. She was mistaken many times in New York for Elizabeth Taylor. Two of her seven children, Linda and Brian, were born in New York City at Cornells Lying-In Hospital; her third, Barry, was born in Chicago; Jeanette, Daniel, Holly, Heather (twins) were born at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City. By earning her twin rating, she perpetuated the Horne family tradition of her father and mother-in-law, Dr. Lyman M. Horne and Myrtle S. Horne, by having twins.
She was fun-loving and adventuresome. She ran the Middle Fork and Main Salmon Rivers, survived many camping trips, orchestrated culinary magnificence on scores of Lake Powell boating trips, loved travel where she found lifelong pen-pals in Europe and the U.S.
She, and her admirers, consider her devoted, beautiful, accomplished children and grandchildren as her crowning achievement.
She was famous for her April-fools pranks, her contagious laugh, and her loyalty to her family and friends. All who knew her well celebrate her grand gift to life and love.
Joyce will be remembered by all for her genuine love, generosity, and concern for others. She especially loved doing things for her family. We all have fond memories of mom, especially during the holidays. Christmas shopping was a year-round affair that always climaxed in a big get-together on Christmas morning with the entire clan. "We will all miss you dearly mother, but we know that you are in a better place."
Joyce's love and concern for her fellow beings went well beyond her family and children. She served as a teacher and care provider to young children, the handicapped and under privileged. She also served in many callings in the LDS church, including Sunday school and primary teacher, Homemaking leader, Relief Society and Young Womens instructor.
Joyce is survived by her seven children, Linda (Christopher), Brian (Tisha), Barry (Susie), Jeanette (Ken), Daniel (Denai), Holly and Heather; six grandchildren; brother, Grover (Linda) Young; and prior spouse, Jonathan Horne, MD.
Funeral service will be held on Saturday, September 26, 1998 at 11 a.m. (viewing 9:45-10:45 a.m.) at the South Cottonwood 16th Ward, 5290 S. Wesley Rd. (11th E.). Friends and family may also call on Fri. September 25, 1998 from 6-8 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Lawn Mortuary, 2350 E. 13th So.
