Obituary: Betty J. Shields Densley

"Boop and Snookie"

1937 ~ 2004

Betty J. Densley, age 67, passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early morning hours of Sept 30, 2004, after a long battle of complications caused by a massive stroke.

She loved life, her family, friends and grandchildren. She loved her home and growing flowers in her yard in the summer months and being a dedicated/cheering Jazz fan (especially Johnny Stockton #12) and crocheting in the winter months.

She was born to Kenneth W. Shields and Eura J. Hansen Shields February 23, 1937 in Murray City. She married Dale E. Densley June 26, 1956, they had just celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary. She had a unique sense of humor and loving personality. She was cleverly sharp and never forgot a thing. Do you remember the saying that elephants never forget? Well she never did! She could tell you details of situations names and conversations of many years back and never miss a beat.

"Don't pick a fight if you know what was good for you, 'cause guaranteed you won't win."

She was a wonderful wife, daughter, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt and everyone's friend. She would do anything for anyone. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband, Dale; and their three children, Bret D (Kathy) Densley, Brad K (Jude) Densley, Daylene Jo Densley; one sister, Tessie (Robert) Seneca; and her sweet little dog (Yorkie).

She has nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, many aunts and uncles, friends and neighbors.

A special thanks to the staff of Draper Rehabilitation Center and the hundreds of others that took care of her over the past seven months.
