Boggess, Zepha Louise Parker - Salt Lake City  
Zepha Louise Parker Boggess 1932 ~ 2015 On January 27, 2015 Zepha Louise Parker Boggess went to meet her beloved Creator after passing away peacefully at home in her sleep-just as she'd always wanted. Zepha was born on September 16, 1932 to Ralph and Tressa Parker. She grew up in Granite, UT and attended Jordan High School. After graduating, Zepha began working at the telephone company where one of her colleagues, Pat Boggess, suggested Zepha begin corresponding with Pat's brother, Richard, who was serving in the military overseas. Zepha agreed and the two began exchanging letters. After Richard returned from Germany, he and Zepha began dating. Six months later they married and began life together in Zepha's home in Granite. They soon moved to Midvale, UT and built a house together on the property adjoining the place Richard was raised. Zepha and Richard started their own family together, first with son Cris and then daughter Cindy. Zepha joined Richard in his farm work, volunteered extensively with the PTA, and made their house into a beautiful, welcoming home surrounded by flowers. Zepha was a talented seamstress, gifted at creating clothes, baby quilts, curtains, and more. She and Richard enjoyed square dancing together and spending time with children, grandchildren, extended family, and close friends. What mattered most to her, however, was her relationship with Jesus Christ her Savior. Zepha's love of God was integral to her identity. She was a passionate Bible reader and a committed attendee of her local church community, Mountain View, for more than 30 years. She taught the preschool morning Sunday school class for 22 years, impacting multiple lives with her creative presentations of the gospel. The whole church knew her simply as "Granny" and benefitted from her prayers. She is survived by her husband, Richard, children Cris (Destiny) Boggess and Cindy (Don) Firestone, as well as her grandchildren: Amy and Trudy Firestone and Spencer, Parker, and Rily Boggess. She is also survived by her brothers Zane and Smith (Ingrid) Parker. She is preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Bud and Tex; and her sisters, Ivy and Audrey. Both the viewing and funeral service will be held at Mountain View Christian Assembly located at 300 East 8000 South, Sandy, Utah. The viewing will be held on Friday, January 30 from 6:00-8:00 PM, and the service celebrating Zepha's life will take place on Saturday, January 31 at 11:30 AM with a viewing one hour prior. Interment at Larkin Sunset Gardens. Online condolences may be shared at www.jenkins-soffe.com .

Buttars, Shaun - Salt Lake City  
Shaun J. Buttars 1965-2015 Salt Lake City, Utah-Shaun J. Buttars, 49, passed away peacefully on January 20, 2015 as a result of complications from a stroke. Shaun was born on January 29, 1965. He spent his early childhood attending Ensign Elementary, going to dinner at the Pagoda restaurant with his parents, and rolling down the hill at the Clarkston City Cemetery. He attended Skyline High School where he wrestled, played football and began singing and playing drums in a band, which he continued through his early college years. His high school and college buddies have remained lifelong friends. Shaun obtained Bachelor's and Master's degrees and spent most of his professional life as a public servant for the State of Utah. At one time he managed the State Archives Record Center and was featured in an article in the Deseret News about that facility. Shaun was an expert in all matters of public records management and took great joy in the relationships he built with his colleagues. But Shaun's greatest pride and joy were his two sons, Michael and Christian (their mother, Jen, and Shaun were married for 15 years). His first reaction to the surprise news of impending fatherhood was, "Oh cool!" Shaun was a natural dad. He had those boys in his arms every minute they would let him. When the boys were younger, he loved having them come to visit him for lunch at work when they had breaks from school. Since his divorce, he has spent every weekend with the boys spending countless hours hanging out, watching football and grilling. Shaun leaves behind a legacy of caring fatherhood, countless funny stories and inside jokes, and the best ever way to cook beer brats. He is predeceased by his father, Royal Buttars; and survived by his mother, Margaret Buttars; and sons Michael and Christian. Shaun disliked funerals and would have hated to make people get in their "Sunday clothes" to come to his. Instead we will have a celebration of Shaun's life on Thursday, January 29 (Shaun's 50th birthday) at the Mount Olympus Ward (4635 S Lanarck Rd.) Visitation will begin at 6:30pm, with a brief service beginning at 7pm followed by a reception for his family and friends. Please come as you are. Bring pictures, cards and stories of Shaun to share. At Christian's request, flowers should be white. A brief graveside service will be held at the Clarkston City Cemetery at noon on Saturday, January 31. On line condolences www.larkinmortuary.com .
