DeAnn Chino Boyle, Grandma “D”, age 74, passed away on Thursday, February 9, 2017 after a long struggle with a myriad of illnesses. DeAnn was born on March 4, 1942, to George Leonard Chino, Sr. and Mary Caroline Farish in Ogden, Utah. DeAnn married her high school sweetheart, James A. Boyle in the Logan LDS Temple on August 29, 1963.
She attended Ogden City schools and graduated from Ogden High School with the class of 1960. She maintained close friendships with many of her high school friends. She went on to attend Utah State University and Weber State University.
She was awarded the “Outstanding Business Student” upon graduating from Weber State. After graduating from college, she became a high school teacher and taught at Weber High and Ogden High.
In her younger years, she worked in her father’s cafe, Chino’s Cafe, on Washington Boulevard. DeAnn and Jim have been the co-owners of Boyle Appliance and Mattress Center for over 30 years. She was always there as a support to Jim in this lifelong endeavor.
DeAnn’s youngest daughter, Jenny, has Down’s Syndrome and was always by her side. DeAnn was instrumental in organizing the Utah Down Syndrome Foundation shortly after Jenny was born. She was an advocate for disabled people throughout her life.
DeAnn was a faithful, active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all of her life. She held many callings over the years including visiting teaching, primary, special needs primary, and special needs mutual.
DeAnn was a master at flower gardening. She had some of the most beautiful flower beds in the neighborhood. Her home and yard were her sanctuary. All were welcome there.
Family meant everything to DeAnn. She absolutely loved her children and grandchildren and looked forward to their visits with delight. Every grandchild loved Grandma “D” the most. Like her mother, she made patchwork quilts for all of her children and grandchildren. She gave them to them at graduation. There is a quilt made and waiting for each grandchild and great grandchild to have from their grandma.
