Brenda Marlene Sanchez Waite

Spanish Fork, UT

"It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved daughter, sister, wife and mother, Brenda Marlene Sanchez Waite. She is now singing with the angels. She was born on June 25, 1973 in San Jose, California. She moved with her family to Tucson, Arizona, and at the age of 15 moved to Bakersfield California. As a youth and young woman she excelled in several choirs, vocal ensembles, and as a soloist. She also shined bright on stage in musical theater. While attending Bakersfield High School, she met the love of her life, Timothy Waite. They became “an item” immediately. Her voice led to a scholarship at Cal State University, Bakersfield, where she excelled in her studies and in music. Her sweetheart, Tim, left for a two year mission to Japan for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During this time, she began noticing symptoms of ALS. It was harder to walk, sing and do things that most people take for granted. At 19 years of age her doctors diagnosed Brenda with ALS. They predicted she would live for 3 to 5 years. But they didn’t know Brenda. Two years later Brenda traveled to Japan with Tim’s parents. After Tim’s release he escorted Brenda to a beautiful Japanese garden where he proposed. Three months later they were married for eternity in the Los Angeles Temple on January 14, 1995. Brenda was determined to finish college. Even with her declining health she earned a Bachelors Degree in Psychology at Cal State Bakersfield with honors, Summa Cum Laude. This would not have been possible without the assistance of her loving mother who drove her to school, pushed her wheelchair, took notes, and helped her with tests. She continued to have health difficulties, but always remained hopeful and optimistic. Her biggest goal in life was to become a mother. In January of 2008 she miraculously gave birth to a beautiful baby boy and he was the joy of her life. She lived every moment for Jesse and Tim. Tim made it possible for her to travel to many places around the world making memories with her beautiful family. These memories will be cherished forever. Tim was Brendas rock star. He patiently and lovingly took care of her till her last breath! Brenda was an incredible friend to everyone. She was a great listener and peacemaker and tried to always be an example to all. Brenda was an example of strength, love and forgiveness. Her wonderful gifts will always be missed. Brenda always thought of others before herself. She was a perfect example of a disciple of Christ and had a special personal relationship with Him. In her last moments she wanted everyone to be happy and wanted everyone to know she loved them. She is survived by her parents, John and Marilyn Sanchez, husband Tim Waite, and son, Jesse Waite. She is also survived by her siblings and their spouses, Laura Lane (Tom), Mark Sanchez (Melissa), Teresa Johnson (Brian), Chris Sanchez (Cindy.) Brenda is also survived by Greg and Elizabeth Waite and family who have showed much love and kindness throughout the years. Her nieces and nephews on both sides of the family adored her. Despite her valiant and courageous battle, she ultimately succumbed to her 30-year struggle with ALS, surrounded by her family, on January 9, 2024. The family would like to make sure that Tim knows how much we appreciate the sacrifices that he made to take care of Brenda during their twenty eight years of marriage. We love you Tim! We are incredibly thankful for all those that helped with her medical care. Especially Heidi, Lindsay, and Isaac. She considered these people her friends. Please join us to celebrate the life of Brenda Marlene Sanchez Waite Tuesday, January 16 LDS chapel 353 E 400 N Spanish Fork, Utah 84660 10am-10:45 Public Viewing 11 am Funeral Services in Chapel 12:30 (approximate) Gravesite For those who wish to support funeral expenses, Jesse’s future, and or Tim’s reestablishment, you may simply donate via Venmo @TimW8"

Pat, the fourth of nine children, was born May 14, 1935 to Richard Bernell McAllister and LuZene Wilkinson McAllister in Logan, Utah. The family moved a lot during Pat's younger years, but they eventually settled down on Murphy's Lane in Salt Lake City, Utah where Pat attended Granite High School. Pat skipped the 12th grade to attend the University of Utah on a Ford Foundation Scholarship. To augment his scholarships, Pat sold welding machines; labored as a carpenter, and concrete contractor; and worked as a chemist to provide for his young family and pay for his education. Pat studied Ceramic Engineering and Mathematics and ultimately earned a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering in 1970.

Pat and MaryLou enjoyed 69 happy years of marriage and look forward to spending eternity together. They are proud of their posterity (40 grandchildren and currently 63 great grandchildren) through which they derive their greatest pleasure and satisfaction. A lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Pat served as a Bishop, High Councilor, Stake Executive Secretary, Elders Quorum President, Scout Master, and Cub Master. Pat was known for his ingenuity, generosity, welcoming nature, joke telling, and physical and spiritual strength. He enjoyed camping, hiking, Dutch oven cooking, singing around the campfire, boating, fishing, and hunting.

Spanish Fork, UT

Lee, age 87, passed away peacefully on Oct. 24, 2023 in Spanish Fork, Utah. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on June 4, 1936, to Willard Preston Arnett and Leah Blanche (Hunter) Arnett. Lee was the youngest of his parents’ four children following his sisters, Leah Mae and Norma, and his brother Stanley. Lee played saxophone and was the drum major in the Lakewood High School marching band. He began playing professionally at age 15. He left his Ohio home after completing high school to join the US Air Force. As a member of the marching band at the newly opened Air Force Academy in northern Colorado, Lee performed at Eisenhower’s second inauguration. His time in the Air Force eventually inspired a hobby. Over two decades later Lee held a single-engine pilot’s license with commercial and instrument ratings that he used for personal enjoyment and family travel. While serving at the Air Force academy, Lee joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Lee served God through his church in many ways over the succeeding decades including music, building construction, leading youth and adult groups, and helping others. Lee married Leah Annette Johnson, a native of Phoenix, Arizona, in Denver, Colorado, on June 21, 1956. Their marriage was sealed on March 15, 1957, in the Mesa Arizona Temple. They are loved by their children: Gary A. Arnett of Blue Springs, Missouri; Patricia L. (Arnett) Fielding of Ammon, Idaho; Larry S. Arnett of Springville, Utah; Daniel J. Arnett of Selah, Washington; and David W. Arnett of Olathe, Kansas. Lavinia Tisi of Tuba City, Arizona, is like a daughter to Leah and Lee. They have been blessed with 26 grandchildren and 52 great-grandchildren. Leah and Lee lived in the Denver, Cleveland, and Los Angeles California areas before relocating to Yakima, Washington, in 1976. They would live most of their lives in Yakima, a community they loved. Lee moved to Springville in 2022 to be with family there. Lee had several jobs during his life, including owner of a radio & television repair shop, Engineering roles at many radio and TV stations, and both technical and artistic roles with the Tape-Athon Company in Los Angeles. In Yakima, Lee and Leah owned and operated Arnett Engineering, Rental Service, and Arnett Properties. Lee taught electronics to high school students at the Yakima Valley Vocational Skills Center. Lee served as President of the Yakima Valley Landlord Association, and President of the Yakima and State Mobile Home Park Associations. Music was always a big part of Lee’s life, his home, and his family. Lee, Leah, and all their children learned to sing well and play instruments. Lee led or played in several Big Band style dance bands. He rubbed shoulders with well-known people from Arthur Fiedler and Tim Conway to George Greeley, Henry Mancini, and Leroy Anderson. Lee even appeared as a TV cameraman in an opening sequence of the movie Fortune Cookie. Lee is survived by all his descendants. We will miss his stories, his wit, and his songs. He is preceded in death by his parents and siblings, as well as his beloved wife with whom he lived most of the best stories. We are confident he was welcomed by them with tears of joy, some jubilant songs, and maybe a joke or two. Funeral services will be held at 11 AM MST on November 11th at the Hobble Creek Stake Center, 495 S. Canyon Rd. , Springville Utah. A graveside service will be held at 10:00 AM PST on November 14th at Terrace Heights Memorial Park, 3001 Terrace Heights Dr. , Yakima, Washington.
