Virginia Mae Starrett Slane

Our sweet wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Virginia Mae Starrett Slane, passed away peacefully Wednesday, December 9, 2020, surrounded by her husband and six children. Virginia was the last of her parents and siblings. They are now a complete and happy family again.

Virginia was born in Gillette, Wyoming on March 5, 1937. She attended Hot Springs County High School in Thermopolis, Wyoming and later married Vernon William “Bill” Slane on December 6, 1956 in Vallejo, California while Bill was in the Navy. Later they were sealed for time and all eternity in the Alberta Cardston Canada Temple on July 3, 1958.

Virginia was privileged to be a full-time mother and raise her children in Seattle, Washington; Tremonton, Utah; and Wellington, Utah. She worked for the Sun Advocate and Emery County Progress as a newspaper assembly worker. She made many friends—young and old—as she served in Primary and Relief Society, but her heart will always be with the children in her Primary classes. She served as Primary President as well.

She is survived by her husband, Bill; daughters Patricia (Doug) Jensen of Saratoga Springs, UT formerly of Portland, OR, LeAnn (Terry) Ficklin of Salem, UT, Norma (Dennis) Tuck of Clinton, UT, and Kimberli (Todd) Davis of Clearfield, UT; sons Daniel (Amy) Slane of Battle Mountain, NV and Ryan (Neva) Slane of Kearns, UT; 28 grandchildren; and 51 (with 3 on the way) great-grandchildren.

Virginia is preceded in death by her parents, Jesse Nawry & Norma Mae Brown Starrett; brothers Robert “Bob” Starrett, Richard “Dick” Starrett, Ronald Starrett, and Lewis Starrett; sister Vivian Elaine Starrett Shepard; daughter-in-law Angie (Argerakis) Slane; and grandson Steven Douglas Jensen.

A viewing will be available Saturday, December 26, 2020 from 12:00pm-12:45pm before the funeral service at 1:00pm at the Wellington Stake Center for relatives only. Please use the following information to view the funeral service.

The interment will follow the services at the Wellington Cemetery.

Thank you to Fausett’s Mortuary for arranging the services.

Thank you to Sunridge Assisted Living administration, medical workers, and staff and Atlas Homecare & Hospice in Layton, UT for their kind care of our ailing mother.

In lieu of flowers, give your mother a big hug and take her to dinner.

We first started working with Bill about eight years ago at the Price Family History Center. On occasion, Virginia would accompany her husband at the center and they both told us about experiences they had working genealogy for many years on the PAF (Personal Ancestry File) system and stories about their family. We enjoyed Virginia's sweet spirit each time we had a chance to see her. She will be missed. We offer our sincere condolences to Bill and the family.
