Sue (Oldroyd) PyneJuly 22, 2017 ~ July 20, 2017
Sue Oldroyd Pyne passed away after a long battle with cancer in her home on July 20, 2017, surrounded by her loving family.
Sue was born April 22, 1951, in Provo, Utah, to William Victor and Hannah Reynolds Oldroyd. She married Joseph Terry Pyne in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on August 7, 1970. They were married 47 years.
Sue attended Brigham Young Academy until it closed her senior year. She finished her senior year at Provo High School, where she graduated in 1969. She continued her college studies at Brigham Young University for a short time, studying English until she became a full-time mother. Her family was everything to her. She was an amazing mother, grandmother and wife! She lived a life of service and was always there for her family or anyone who needed her. She had an innate goodness and was always eager to help the ones she loved.
She was a lifelong member of the LDS Church and held many positions in Primary. Her beautiful voice and love for singing were shared while serving in her favorite calling as the Primary music chorister. She also enjoyed her time serving in the Cub Scouts.
Sue had a great talent and love for cooking, baking and gardening, which she generously shared with her loved ones and community for most of her life. She spoiled her children with fresh baked homemade bread and cookies daily, warm out of the oven as the kids arrived home from school. She also made elaborately decorated birthday cakes and homemade suckers for every birthday, holiday or other notable occasion. She baked the best peach pies in the state with fruit grown at her husband’s orchard, Pyne Farms in Santaquin, and made delicious grape juice.
Although Terry was the fruit farmer, Sue had a green thumb of her own. She grew beautiful flowers and had quite the talent for growing heirloom tomatoes. Each summer her dining room table would be covered in every shape, color, and variety of tomato imaginable.
Sue had a great sense of humor, and was always able to make you laugh. She cracked jokes up until the end, and even conspired to escape her hospice bed to the front porch of her home. She was dear to all who knew her. She loved with her whole heart and would do anything at any time to help the ones she loved. She was the most beautiful, loyal and loving woman and will be dearly missed.
Sue is survived by her husband Terry Pyne and six children: Mike (Kristin) Pyne of Midvale, Utah; Adrienne (Dallas) Young of Lindon, Utah; Greg (Melissa) Pyne of John’s Creek, Georgia; Kent (Mandee) Pyne of Payson, Utah; Kelly (Cardon) Webb of Holladay, Utah; and Cameron Pyne of Portland, Oregon. She is survived by 12 grandchildren who all adored her, and had one more on the way who she dearly hoped to meet (Daniel, Alex, Sawyer, Hudson, Scarlett, Violet, Kenton, Nyles, Liam, Elliot, Koos, and Cree, and Parker), She is survived by 6 of her siblings: Victor Oldroyd, Mark Oldroyd; Hannah Jorgensen; Nancy Kowallis; Allen Oldroyd and Robert Oldroyd. She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Esther Denkers.
