Angelica Marie Rice

12/12/1991 ~ 6/23/2013
Our sweet and much loved daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, & friend Angelica Marie Rice passed away on June 23rd 2013. Although she was so young, she brightened many days and touched many, many lives. She truly leaves this world a much better place. She will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed.
Angel was due to be born on Christmas Day but was joyfully welcomed on December 12th 1991 in West Jordan, UT to her adoring parents Robert John Rice and Sherrie Allred Rice. Angel's service will be held on the 15th anniversary of the passing of her beloved father Robert. She now joins him in watching over their loved ones from above.
Angel was a truly beautiful person, inside and out. Angel's inner beauty shone through her infectious giggle, dimpled smile and magnificent green eyes. Angel especially enjoyed the holidays, happily decorating her home to celebrate every occasion. Angel also loved cooking, endlessly watching the Cooking Channel and making delicious food & treats for her family and friends.
Angel excelled in her first & only job starting when she was 16 at Arby's in West Jordan, UT working her way up to Senior Assistant Manager. She loved her job and worked very hard, gaining the respect, admiration, and friendship of supervisors, co-workers, and customers.
Most of all, Angel loved spending time with her family. Her mother and brothers were her best friends.
Angel leaves her loving memories to be cherished by her mother Sherrie Allred Rice; brothers Joshua Allen Rice and his wife Laura Ann Rice, Robert Thomas Rice and his son Tristen; and many, many additional family, friends, business associates, and others who were blessed to have known her. Joshua and Laura are expecting Angel's first niece, Emma Marie Rice within the next two weeks.
