Raina Joy's life was enriched with many educational experiences which began in the Salem Elementary School and continued on to Spanish Fork High School and then Snow College where she was female athlete of the year.

She then attended Utah State University where she graduated with her teaching certificate and was a member of the National Honor Society.

She later attended BYU and received an endorsement to Resource. She taught P.E. and Health in Duchesne and Hurricane. She then taught gymnastics and dance from her home for many years while raising her family. She later taught at Payson Junior High School for several years where her biggest delight was being chosen "Teacher of the Year" for the State of Utah by Sam's Club for the school year 2001-2002.

Raina Joy was a lifetime active member of The of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with many church callings. She especially enjoyed teaching Primary and

Sunday School classes. Raina Joy, we'll miss your amazing and beautiful smile, your sense of humor, and vigor of life for all God's creation. God is now treasuring your company with him as you continue to teach children in the spirit world.
