Norma Jean Wyatt
Born: 7/13/1930, Moab, Utah
In 1973 Mom married the love of her life, James Wyatt, with whom she would spend the rest of her life. Mom and Jim were devoted members of the LDS church, where she was a member of the Relief Society. They chose to be sealed to each other for all eternity in the Jordan River LDS Temple in 1995. After working many other jobs, Mom found her true calling in caring for and helping others. She retired after 30 years as a nurse assistant and cook at Allen Memorial Hospital.
Mom had a wonderful sense of humor, and loved time with family, arts and crafts, and dancing. She especially loved playing cards and games with her grandchildren.
She is survived by her husband, Jim Wyatt of Grand Junction; brothers Ray Ellis and John Stocks, a sister LaDean Black ; and children, Jeanie Merz, Budd Merz, Jr. (Cheri), Don Merz (Joy), and Gaylene Merz; ten grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren and seven great-great-grandchildren.
A public viewing is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. at Spanish Valley Mortuary. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 11:00 am at Moab LDS 2nd Ward Chapel, 475 West 400 North, Moab, Utah; followed by a graveside service at Sunset Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers the family suggests to make a donation to a favorite charity. Mom enjoyed flowers except for carnations, so please no carnations in her honor.
