DeAnn Chino Boyle

March 4, 1942 - February 9, 2017

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.

DeAnn leaves behind her husband, Jim, and six children: Pamela (Bryce) Blanch, Lynda Scadden, Steven (Stacie) Boyle, Randall (Courtney) Boyle, Marci (Patrick) Parker, and Jennifer Boyle. Grandchildren: Heidi (Ryan) Spendlove, Drew (Grissel) Blanch, Thomas Blanch, Luke (Hayley Rivers) Blanch; Megan (Derek) Martinez, Jed and Jake Scadden; Spencer, Maddie, and Kaydee Boyle; Noah, Fiona, and Layla Boyle, and grandson on the way; Hunter and Sydney Satterthwaite. Great Grandchildren: Trey, Cash, and Kale Spendlove; Juliet Blanch, Gabriel Martinez, Ava DellaLucia, and one great granddaughter on the way. DeAnn also leaves behind one sister, MaryLynne Chino; and one brother George L. (JoEllen) Chino, Jr. She was preceded in death by her parents.

Dear Jim, We were so sorry to hear about DeAnn's passing. We were just about to leave town, so we couldn't see you at the mortuary. I just want you to know how much I always loved DeAnn - from Elementary through High School. We had sooooo much fun together. I know she was a wonderful mother, and I'm so sorry about all her suffering. Even with all that I also know it never kept her from taking care of her family. She loved you all so much. Please know that our prayers of peace and comfort are with you and all your family. She's someone who cannot be replaced, but aren't we glad we know the Plan? Love, Sandra Murdock Evertsen and Lyle.

DeAnn's love for her family spread farther than you will ever know. Over the years, Mary Lynne has shared with me so many of the wonderful life events of DeAnn and Jim's ever expanding family--new babies, new marriages, new grandbabies and so forth. I know how much Mary Lynne loves her sister and grieves for her. Sending prayers from Seattle for Comfort and Grace to all who loved - and will continue to love - DeAnn so very much.
