Susan "Sue" Lenne Shearer Wardle
Sep 03, 1943 - Feb 21, 2024
Washington Fields, UT
Watch Live Stream HERE Susan "Sue" Lenne Shearer Wardle, age 80, of Duchesne and Washington Fields, Utah, passed away on February 21, 2024, due to complications of cancer. She was born on September 3, 1943, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Edward Gordon and Dorothy Florence Kling Shearer. She was the oldest of four children and loved her siblings immensely! She grew up in Salt Lake City and graduated from Granite High School in 1961 where she participated in choir. Sue enjoyed music and loved the art of dance. She began teaching dance at the young age of 12 years old in her parents’ home. She participated in many dance competitions and was also a contestant on the Eugene Jelesnik TV show which she always loved to recall. Sue loved the outdoors and when she was a young girl her family built a cabin getaway in the Soapstone area near Mirror Lake. They spent many summers enjoying life at the cabin where many treasured memories were created. While staying at the cabin, Sue enjoyed being a member of the YMCA camp in the Soapstone area as well. Sue had a wonderful childhood and cherished all memories with her loving parents, her sister, Vonnie, and brothers, Butch and J.D. Sue met the love of her life William Merton "Bill" Wardle at a Johnny Cash concert and after a courtship they were married on November 23, 1962. They began life together in Salt Lake where they worked and started their family. However, Bill’s longing for the Uintah Basin led them to purchase a lot on Tabby Mountain where they worked many weekends together to build a cabin. This cabin gave their extended Wardle family a great place to create many lasting memories over the years. In 1968, Bill and Sue left Salt Lake behind and moved into the Wardle family residence in Duchesne. After much hard work, trial and tribulation, they made that house into a wonderful home where they raised their four daughters and gave them an amazing, loving childhood. Sue taught dance in that home for many, many years while Bill worked hard to establish Certified Welding. She worked tirelessly to take care of her family and support Bill’s endeavors. Sue loved being involved in the Duchesne community and volunteered for many things (ALL the things!). She taught 4-H for many years, was in PTA, Mother’s Club, The Green Team… too many to name. She was also passionate about the Pope House project. She loved Duchesne and immersed herself in anything she could to improve the community… you name it, she was involved! You may also remember her as the Bookmobile lady, a job that she enjoyed to the fullest. Early on in her Duchesne life, Sue broke out of her "city girl" mode and got her hands dirty doing whatever was needed to accomplish a job or a goal. Sue and Bill fulfilled a dream and purchased property north of Duchesne in the early 70’s and life with "Bill’s Longhorn Ranch" began. They spent many years raising Longhorns, working on their ranch, and traveling to Longhorn shows. They loved sharing this passion with family and friends. Branding days were a production and were the best days! They enjoyed the friendships made with all those they were involved with in this capacity. Sue was a true friend to everyone she met! She loved meeting new people and learning their stories, connecting with them on any level she could. She filled volumes of notebooks with her notes on everyone and everything! Her memory was amazing and we’re sure this was the reason why. She could recall facts or birthdays with remarkable ease. She had an adventurous spirit and there was nothing she wouldn’t try. Sue loved living near Sharly and her family in Washington Fields and also being near extended family in the St. George area as well. She treasured her 15th Ward and network of sweet friends in Washington Fields. Although she was deeply saddened by Bill's passing in October of 2020, then diagnosed with cancer shortly thereafter, this final chapter was a remarkable time of life for her. We are so grateful for the kindness shown to her by so many and for the true friendships that she so enjoyed. Sue was also blessed with an amazing array of medical professionals and hospice caregivers in St. George. In addition, her sister Vonnie, and sister-in-law Cris, took incredible care of her in her home for which we are forever grateful. Sue cherished her membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and had a strong and unwavering testimony. She had many callings throughout her life and fulfilled each one to the fullest. Her faith ran deep and she would share her love of the gospel whenever she could with anyone that would listen, and even with those who wouldn’t (wink wink!). Most of all, Sue loved caring for and supporting her loving husband Bill and their daughters in all of their endeavors. She sacrificed all and devoted her life to making ours the best they could possibly be! Her life was the truest example of love, kindness, compassion and service; she leaves a true legacy. And a more amazing, loving Grandma you will never find! She loved her grandchildren to the core and especially loved all visits and attending any activities they were involved in. "Grandma Sue" / "Sue-Sue"… whatever the title, she loved all of her grandkids fiercely! And we can’t forget - GO JAZZ!!! Bill and Sue loved to watch every Jazz game they could catch! And Mom didn’t miss a beat after Dad left… she was a diehard fan! Sue is survived by daughters, Nova Lee (Steve) Hanke, Smithfield, UT; Audra Jan (Michael) Pike, West Jordan, UT; Sharly Sue (Jeremy) Lefler, Washington, UT; grandchildren: Michael (Arleigh), Kyndra (Tyson), Garrett (Anna), Jordan (Lexi), Keaton, Treyden, Easton, Dax, Amanda, Tyler (Alexie), Shantel, Alyssa (Steven); great-grandchildren: Juleigh, Enzo, Petra, Mila, Will, Booker, Maylee, Kezlynn, Dayton, Axxtyn, Layla, Lillian, Trayston, Violet and Piper, and one great-grandson due soon that she was so anxious to meet; siblings: Vonnie Jo (Doug) Wildfoerster, Salt Lake City, UT; Edward (Cris) Shearer, Kanab, UT; and J.D. Shearer, Twisp,WA; Bill’s siblings, Virginia (Jimmy) Brotherson, Boneta, UT; Rhea (Monte) Johnson, St. George, UT; Linda Powell, Kamas, UT; Trudy (Dick) Johnson, Park City, UT; Mike (Glenna) Wardle, Stansbury Park, UT; and Andy (Joni) Wardle, Sandy, UT; also survived by Mike and Marylou Turley of West Jordan, UT. She leaves behind many nieces and nephews and loved her title of "Aunt Sue!" Last but certainly not least, her faithful companion, her dog, "Penny!" She was preceded in death by her loving husband Bill; daughter, Lenne Brin Wardle Turley; son, Leonard Jed Wardle; parents, Edward and Dorothy Shearer; parents-in-law Merton and Rella Wardle; and numerous other beloved family members. We are sure that Mom’s broken heart was finally healed the moment she painlessly ran into the arms of Bill, Brin, and Jed. All who knew Sue knew Brin’s loss especially left a gaping hole in her heart. Time may have lessened the pain, but the wound was never healed. We are grateful that she is relieved of both her physical pain and the anguished heartache and that she is with them all again. She truly fought a valiant fight and left a beautiful legacy. Her kindness and compassion was unmatched; she was deeply loved and will be forever missed. "Well done, good and faithful servant." Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. at the Duchesne Stake Center (901 North 500 East, Duchesne, Utah). A viewing will be held prior to the service starting from 9:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Burial will be in the Duchesne City Cemetery.

Apr 03, 1941 - Jan 22, 2024
Patricia Gardner passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home in Washington, Utah, on Monday, Jan. 22, 2024, after a five-year battle with metastatic thyroid cancer. She was born on April 3, 1941, in Salt Lake City to DeVere and Helen Robinson. During her formative years, her family lived on Kenwood Street in the Highland Park area. An early memory was attending Junior Sunday school with her Grandma Pritchett, who led the singing and only lived a couple of streets away. Whenever she would stay overnight at her Pritchett grandparents, they would always have family prayer, which was new to Pat. Even though she was young, she realized how important it was to have family prayer, and this was something she always did when she had her own family. A lot of fond memories and lifelong friends were made in this Highland Park neighborhood with pastimes such as Kick the Can, Hide and Seek, Run Sheepy Run, Annie I Over, jacks, jump rope, hopscotch, badminton and kickball in the street. Pat’s group of girlfriends stayed close and, later in life, would get together on a regular basis for lunch. She was in the first graduating class of Highland High in 1959. She loved the social aspect of high school and was involved in choosing the mascot, school colors and school song. She had a nickname as the 7th Cheerleader (there were only six cheerleaders, but Pat was always right there yelling and getting the student body cheering). It also helped that her younger brother Jerry was the punter for the football team. She always helped get enough signatures to “rally” buses for away games because the school didn’t have buses. She was on the school newspaper staff and involved in drama. Their play “The Emperor’s Nightingale” won the high school state drama competition for one-act plays. Her parents were always loving, supportive, and welcoming, and she felt you would be hard-pressed to find parents as wonderful as hers. She also loved spending time with relatives. Her mother had four sisters that she considered second mothers. It was always a highlight for her to spend time with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins throughout her life. After high school, she started at the University of Utah, transferred to Church College of Hawaii (now BYU Hawaii), and eventually finished up her associates at Dixie College (now Utah Tech University). Soon after graduation, she made the decision to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was called to serve in France in what was then the Franco-Belgian mission. She felt it was the best thing she ever did and loved her time there. It was in her last proselytizing area, Nancy, that she met another missionary, Marvin Gardner, who she would later marry. Marvin returned home shortly after Pat and proposed the night he got home. They were married in August 1965. Marvin’s pursuits took the family across three states in their married life: Utah, Arizona and California. They had six kids together, the first passing away at birth. Pat loved being a mom to her own kids but would also welcome anyone into her home and treat everyone like family. Marvin and Pat divorced in 1991. Pat went on to graduate with a teaching degree and then became a teacher at Cinnamon Hills Youth Crisis Center for almost 20 years. Pat was a lady of many talents and hobbies. She excelled as a homemaker and spent many hours canning fruits and vegetables, baking thousands of loaves of homemade bread and spending countless hours cooking meals, making sure everyone was fed. She was always involved in her church and held many callings, including, at one point or another, president of her Primary, Young Women and Relief Society organizations. She was the perfect listening ear and was slow to judge. She was great at sending birthday cards and keeping up with everyone on social media. She loved attending theater productions, especially musical theater and religion classes. She was always down for a jigsaw puzzle, chocolate candy or going out for Mexican food. Her greatest joy came from being a mom and grandma and being involved in her kids and grandkids’ lives. Pat was a strong and courageous woman and fought cancer like a warrior. Her strength and positive attitude were admirable. She was a great example, a hero to many. She was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed. Pat was preceded in death by her parents DeVere and Helen Robinson; her daughter Nancy; and her brother-in-law Brent Eyre. Pat is survived and missed by her children Dee (Amanda) Gardner of Salt Lake City, Utah, Mike (Jaime) Gardner of Washington, Utah, Liz (Charles) Talbot of Washington, Utah, Rich Gardner of Ivins, Utah, and Dennis Gardner of Salt Lake City, Utah; 14 grandchildren: Roman and Mattie, Frank and Bella, Emerson, Kate, Laken, Sawyer, Asher, Sessel and Charity, Daniel and Taylor, Ethan, Sage, Chase, Triston, Callie; two great-grandchildren: Everley and Cooper; siblings and their families Jerry (Dianne) Robinson and Colleen Eyre. A viewing and memorial service will be held in Sandy, Utah, at Larkin Sunset Gardens on Friday, Feb. 2. Viewing from 12:30-1:40 p.m., with memorial service from 2-3 pm at 1950 E. Dimple Dell Road (10600 S), Sandy, Utah. The memorial service will be streamed at .

JoAnne McAllisterLas Vegas, Nevada Our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, JoAnne Dowdell McAllister, 90, passed away from conditions associated with Alzheimer’s disease, on Friday, December 23, 2023, at her residence in Washington, Utah. JoAnne was born on September 17, 1933, in Panguitch, Utah. She is the youngest of five daughters born to James Erroll and Nettie Arvilla McEwen Dowdell. JoAnne was raised in Panguitch – right on Main Street. She graduated from Panguitch High School, where she was popular among her peers and involved in myriad activities, including being named the FFA Sweetheart of 1951. In high school, JoAnne worked at the Flying M Café, which is still a viable business in Panguitch under a new name. Following graduation, JoAnne married Karl McAllister, her high school beau. They were sealed for time and all eternity in the St. George Temple on July 17, 1953. JoAnne and Karl have three children: Kim Steven Karl and Melanie. Following high school, JoAnne worked as a telephone operator in town while Karl relocated to Logan, Utah to pursue his degree in engineering and enter the Air Force ROTC. JoAnne stayed busy working at the phone company and caring for her parents, looking forward to visits from Karl during occasional weekend and holiday breaks. After Karl’s graduation and entrance into the Air Force they were transferred to San Antonio, Texas. JoAnne gave birth to their first daughter, Kim, during their next assignment in Reno, Nevada. Karl’s following assignment was all the way across the country at Fort Dix Air Force Base in Trenton, New Jersey, the farthest JoAnne had ever been from home. It was challenging to be alone with a small child in a strange place where she knew no one while Karl was flying assignments and gone for lengthy periods at a time, but of necessity, JoAnne quickly became very independent. Their son, Steven Karl, was born three years later in Trenton, New Jersey, and quickly became the joy of the whole family. JoAnne was active in the Officers’ Wives Club in their various military communities and was continually involved in good works with her family, church and social responsibilities. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held various calling in the Primary and Relief Society over the years, and served as a temple worker in both the Albuquerque and Las Vegas Temples. She was known for her integrity, honesty and reliability, which made her valuable to her employers later on. But the job JoAnne loved the most was that of becoming grandmother to her eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren! Herlegacy to her family has been one of establishing traditions through meals, holidays, gifts and love. JoAnne is the glue that has strengthened the bonds of the McAllister family for more than seven decades. Some of JoAnne’s favorite experiences and memories came from their opportunities to visit and travel with their son, Steven, as his career took him to exotic, faraway places. JoAnne loved seeing the world, especially from the perspective of one who spent all of her life until she was grown in one small town. JoAnne and Karl were transferred to several subsequent military bases including Dayton, Ohio and Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they lived until 2012, when they moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, to be closer to their daughters and grandchildren who resided there. In Las Vegas JoAnne was in close proximity to all eight grandchildren and immersed herself in supporting them, counseling with them, and caring for them. She has always been an integral and important part of her children’s and grandchildren’s lives. JoAnne was a compassionate, generous, service-oriented person always trying to help those in need. Nothing can fill the void left by a beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother who shared her love so generously with her family and friends. Her legacy was the importance she placed on her family and the kindness she expressed to all. She will be greatly missed by us all. She is survived by her husband, Karl; children: Kim (Randy) Brown; Steven McAllister (Tom Nemec), Melanie (Wesley) Williams; 8 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. JoAnne is preceded in death by her parents; and her sisters: Maureen Goff, June Van Hemert, Donna Smith and Lucille Tebbs; her niece Vickie Tebbs Walker; and her nephew Brad Liston. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 6, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. in the Washington 10th Branch, 1500 Ridge View Drive in Washington, Utah. Burial will be in the Panguitch Utah Cemetery at 1:30 p.m. Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti. Full obituary and online guestbook at www.maglebymortuary.com
