Lanice Heffner, 1934 ~ 2011

Lanice Rae Heffner left this earth on June 22, 2011 to be with her sons Kenneth Cowley and Larry Hill; brother Jim Twitchell; father Lou Twitchell and mother Thora Twitchell in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Lanice was born in Kingston, Utah on Dec. 30, 1934. Lanice leaves behind children, Steven (Cleta) Cowley, and Curtis (Stephanie) Hill; grandchildren, Ashley and Hayes Cowley, William and John Garcia, Kenneth, Lanice, Joey, Natasha, Breeanna, Sabrina, and Nathan Hill; great-grandchildren, Kaden and Tatum Hill, Alyssa, Andrea, and Gabby Jones, Lily, William, Annraya, and Jeremiah Garcia; brothers, Martin (Kathy) Twitchell, and Kyle Twitchell; sisters, Hulda Mary Webster, Lorraine (Max) Bahr, Carrie (Randy) Stephens, Linda (Ken) Latham, Becky (Dick) Brinda, Willie Lue Payne; and many nieces and nephews. And those, who, although they were not born to her, she considered her children and grandchildren.

Lanice led a very interesting and challenging life. She loved and accepted everyone she met, taking care of many. She was always there to listen and support in any way that she could. Her home was “home” to anyone who needed a home or a shoulder. Her shoulders were very broad as she had many who called her Mom, Grandma, Sister, or Daughter. She will be missed by those who loved her.

Funeral services were held Saturday, June 25, at 10 a.m. at the Spanish Valley Mortuary. A viewing was held Friday, June 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. Interment was at the Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
