Joyce Isaac Knight

April 12, 1950 - June 21, 2016

Heaven called a very special Angel home on June 21, 2016. Joyce Isaac Knight passed away after a very long and courageous battle with cancer.


Joyce married the love of her life, Gary Knight on December 23, 1987.


Joyce enjoyed camping, fishing, gardening, car shows, and in her younger years, belly dancing.


Joyce is survived by her husband Gary; five daughters; fourteen grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; a brother; and her constant companions Lilly and Wendell.


We would like to give a special “Thank You” to Dr. Carl Grey and his staff with the Utah Oncology Department for the wonderful care Joyce received through the years.


Services will be held at a later date, per family’s request.


Arrangements under the direction of Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah.

I have so many great memories and am so hAppy you could see 4 of my six children come into this world. Please watch over them and kep them safe . I remember when I was a little girl how you fixed my hair just the way I wanted and made sure me and Jennifer looked just so perfect and fresh. I remember your port roast was always the best and everything else you made was perfect! I remember that you always had a jar of mentholatum beside your bed, which I still do to this very day!

Gary, Cassie and I are so sorry to hear of Joyce's passing. Both Joyce and you are special people. If there is anything at all we can do please let us know. Sorry we are so late getting to you but we have been out of town. If you haven't held a service/memorial for her yet we would certainly like to know when it is. Sincerely, Bruce And Cassie Wood

Gary, I am so sorry to read of the loss of your wife, Joyce. I think about you occasionally and appreciate the good times we had and how kind you were to my children. We lost Todd in 2012. I am happily married and have lived in Ogden for 30 years. I know it will be hard for you to be alone but hope you can remember all the happy memories of your life with Joyce and that will sustain you. Please give my condolences and best wishes to your daughters.
