Our loving mother, sister, and dear friend Joyce, age 63, passed away Monday, August 28, 1995 at her daughters home in Salt Lake City after a short battle with cancer.

Born January 20, 1932 in Manti, Utah to Irvin Lund Henrie and Orlene Larsen Henrie. Married Raymond D. Lowry and lived in Mt. Pleasant, Utah they later divorced. She married Ellis (Buck) Maylett on November 6, 1976 and lived in Murray, Utah.She will be dearly missed by everyone that got to know her. Her family will always remember her with an abundance of enthusiasm and love for life no matter how disappointing things got. Her family was very important to her and they always came first. She wanted to experience life to the fullest, and in our eyes, she did. She was an avid artist, seamstress, cook, golfer, shopper, mechanic, carpenter, beautician, and expert traveler. You name it, she did it all. She got to visit all corners of the world, including Egypt, Spain, Mexico, the Orient, New Zealand, Europe, Yugoslavia, and her last trip was to Russia in June. She worked for Morris Travel in Provo and Salt Lake City, and loved to share her experiences with others who were vacationing to many of the same places. Joyce was challenged with a lot of things that she was able to overcome, but the toughest was the cancer discovered after her return from Russia. Joyce and her family would like to thank all her dear friends and co-workers who have called and visited her through this courageous struggle. A little bit of Joyce will live on through all of us that met her.

She is survived by her mother, Orlene (Provo); husband, Buck; and her five children, Peggy Staker, West Valley City; Wesley Lowry, Sandy; David Lowry, West Jordan; Lynette Simcox, Denver; and Bart Lowry, West Jordan; three brothers, Keith Henrie, San Francisco; Lund Henrie, Bountiful; Larry Henrie, Gunnison; and her twin sister, Elouise Jensen, Provo and 11 grandchildren.
