Angela Romrell Whytock Obituary
Angie passed away peacefully on January 10, 2014 and returned to our Heavenly Father. She was surrounded by those who loved her and was in her favorite atmosphere, wearing pajamas at home. Angie was an extraordinary noble soul. She was born on February 26, 1956 in Rexburg, Idaho to Sharon Richards and Jay Lloy Romrell. She was raised by her loving father and step mother, Elynor Romrell. She graduated from Kearns High School and later married Donnald Lee Whytock. Together they had two children and later divorced. Angie spent her entire career in the mortgage industry and was a great asset to all those that worked with her.
She began a courageous battle with breast cancer nearly six years ago. Her journey has shown others what it truly means to endure to the end and to never make excuses. Her fairest advice was "It is what it is". She always put others before herself, especially family and her precious grandchildren. Angie enjoyed life and took it at an easy pace. She was extremely relaxed with her time, which caused her to be legendarily late for absolutely everything. She was renowned for her entertaining personality, her amazing cooking and her ability to light up any room with her bright blue eyes and electric smile. It is not an understatement to say that Angie's everlasting kindness had no limits. Anyone who met her was intoxicated by her attitude, passion and love. She was warm, kind, generous and fair. Angela was adequately the predestined name because she truly is and forever will be our angel.
Angie's greatest joy was her children and especially her grandchildren. When she welcomed her first grandchild she was far too young and beautiful to be called grandma. Angie was simply "Nana" and gave all her love and energy to her babies. Besides her grandchildren and family, Angie loved spending time with her dearest companion Dewie Layton. Together they would travel, sail the open sea, scuba dive, take motorcycle rides, visit the cabin, and watch The Voice. Her passion for these things has been happily amplified with Dewie by her side. She lived a beautiful life and will be missed dearly.
Survived by her daughter Ashton (Adam) Shunk and their children Andre, Lauren, Kate; son Anthony (Kaylee) Whytock; companion Dewie Layton; stepsons Andrew Whytock and his children Chanse and Dallin; and Kelly (Heather) Whytock and their children Jaeden, Tristyn, Presley, and Chanel; mother Sharon Richards Mead; stepmother Elynor Romrell; brothers Lloy (Diane) Romrell, Scott (Sandy) Verde, Troy (Laura) Verde, Brandon (Misty) Verde; sisters J'Nette (Steve) Bonner, Lorie (Dan) Felix, Colleen (Scott) Hayes; and many nephews and nieces. Preceded in death by her father Jay Lloy Romrell; sister Trina Hancock; brother Wade Verde.
A celebration of her life will be held on Thursday, Jan 16th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City, where complimentary valet parking will be provided at the north end of the building.
Funeral Service will be held on Friday, Jan 17th at 11:00 AM at the LDS Church Stake Center located 4200 West Skye Dr. (9800 South), South Jordan.
