Patty Jones Wife Mother Sister Daughter Healer Horse Lover Sharing Friend Our loving Patty returned home to her heavenly Father on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, after a 5 year battle with IBC. Patricia Suzanne (Zeedyk) Jones was born on Monday, October 3, 1960, in Henderson, NV making the whole world a little brighter. She grew up in southern Nevada and graduated from Clark High School (Las Vegas) in 1978. She attended Ricks College where she met her eternal best friend Laryn (Lary) R. Jones. They were married for time and all eternity in the St. George temple on Saturday, September 12, 1981. Their love story is one of deep and eternal friendship, lots of laughs, common goals, love, desire, and faithfulness. Patty graduated as a Physician Assistant from the University of Utah in 1991. She said that medicine chose her, and loved working with Dr. Glenn Mortensen in family medicine in Cache Valley. The lives she touches are a tribute to her professional standards and her heart's sensitivity to the needs of others. Medicine was her profession, but it was the people that made her love it. She treated all with respect, love, and friendship. Patty's talent to heal extended beyond physical ailments and she will be missed more that words can convey. Patty had two great loves her Savior and her family. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved to serve, doing so with her whole heart. Her favorite area of service was her Young Women. She tried to share the love of Christ with others so they might know they were children of a loving Heavenly Father. She 'adopted' many daughters (and sons) through her years of service, building bonds that have continued to grow. Girl's Camp, laughing, loving, and sharing knowledge that Christ understood what no one else knew expressing her faith in each person and in her Savior. Patty's other great love was her family. Patty and Lary raised four children Carri Beth (1982-2008), Kali Nichole, Sean David (married to Megan Olson) and Tyler Richard. Patty's greatest priority was her family. She helped her children discover themselves dancing, horseback riding, swimming, karate, horseback riding, basketball, camping, horseback riding, kick ball, softball, photography, singing, art, horseback riding, sewing, acting, horseback riding, piano, cello, violin, bassoon, flute, theater, Boy Scouts, hiking, a perfect addition of Megan the Wonderful, and summer vacations. Patty was there for her children. She tried always to make sure her children knew she loved each of them and supported them and their dreams. She believed in people. She leaves a tremendous legacy of love and an aching void of vacancy. She LOVED being "Grandma Patty" and is survived by her parents, Leonard and Edna Zeedyk and her two brothers and their wives, Leonard and Caroly Zeedyk and Rick and Cindy Zeedyk. Patty, we love you, miss you, and are so very, very grateful the Good Lord loaned you to us for as long as he did! YOU will be missed for time, loved for Eternity!
