Obituary: Lucille Mae Scott Sorensen

8/18/19 ~ 9/27/03

Lucille Sorensen peacefully joined many of her loved ones beyond the veil in the early hours Saturday morning.

She was born to Walter and Lydia Gerstner Scott in Salt Lake City, Utah.

She was sealed for eternity to Oliver Richard (Dick) Sorensen in the Salt Lake Temple in 1941. He preceded her in death in February 1982. Their three sons, Richard, Gary and Mark were the light of her life. From the day they were born, each son was woven into and remained an integral part of her existence.

She graduated from the University of Utah at age 41 with a degree in Education. Her life-long love of learning and teaching never diminished and she continued her education obtaining a masters degree and beyond. She taught elementary school in the Granite School District for many years.

She was a deeply spiritual person and served in many church callings.

Lucille ranked as one of her greatest accomplishments in life serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Arizona, Tucson Mission from December 1990 to December 1991. She had many fond memories of this service which lingered and brought her great pleasure throughout the remainder of her life.

Lucille's life was filled with music and her home was her greatest venue. Her children's choruses instilled her love of music into many lives. She sang with several well-known women's choruses. In her 70's she added tap dancing to her repertoire and was known to give impromptu performances, leaping off the couch at family gatherings.

Lucille is survived by her children, Richard (Ella), Noradene, and Mark (Nancy); grandchildren, Tim (Corey), Michelle (Dennis), Kristie (Peter), Hannah (Stephen), Jeremy (Kim), Kalleen (Kirk), Zeke, Scott (currently serving an LDS Mission in Mexico), Tressa Ruth; 10 great-grandchildren; and sister, Catherine Joyce.

Preceded in death by her husband; son, Gary Douglas; and brother, Douglas Scott.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, September 30, 2:00 p.m. at Redwood Memorial Mortuary, 6500 South Redwood Road. Friends and family may call one hour prior to services. Interment, Redwood Memorial Cemetery.
