Kaysville, UT-Our dearly loved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend died peacefully in her home in the early morning hours on Friday, June 15, 2012, surrounded by family. She fought cancer valiantly for 44 months. LaRene was born on January 17, 1951, in Coalville, Utah, the fourth of five children born of Fay Edwin Richins and Clyda Bair.

Together they reared six children and have 18 grandchildren. She became a real estate broker, restaurant owner, writer and lecturer.
