Obituary: Lois Ilene Hight Rasmussen

Lois Ilene Hight Rasmussen 1930 ~ 2005 KAYSVILLE - Lois Ilene Hight Rasmussen left this existence Friday, September 9, 2005, just two months after her 75th birthday. She was born June 24, 1930, to Wallace and Ethel Elliott Hight and grew up with her three brothers and three sisters in Farmington. She was a proud graduate of Davis High School, Class of 1948. In December of 1947, Lois was sealed to James R. Rasmussen in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They raised their six children in Kaysville where she lived out the rest of her life. She and James loved to go camping with their family. In later years they bonded with their Uno group while playing cards, watching Jazz games, and traveling the world. Lois, along with her best friend, Betty Parsell, enjoyed owning "Friend's Catering." Lois had a real talent for music. We all have memories of her playing the piano and singing, or heading out in her crazy outfits to go perform her comedy routines. She was also the ward organist for many years. However, Lois' real passion came from interacting with others. She thrived when regaling her friends and family with her anecdotes. She cherished the luncheons with her childhood friends. Lois loved her family, friends, and ward family very much. Her parents; husband; sons, Richard and Paul; along with her great-grandson, Marcus; brothers, Wally, John; and sister, Dawn, hailed her arrival on the other side of the veil. Lois will be missed here on earth by her son, Jim, and his wife, Linda; her daughters, Evelyn, Eileen, and Chris; as well as her 13 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren. Also her siblings, Norma (Wallace) Allred, Virginia (Rex) Creer, Alan (Mona) Hight, Shirley Hight, Helen Hight and Walt Bain, and the rest of her extended family will grieve for Lois as well. Funeral services will be held Friday, September 16, 2005, 11 a.m. at the Kaysville South Stake Center, 900 S. Main. Friends and family may call Thursday from 6-8 p.m. at the Lind-quist's Kaysville Mortuary, 400 N. Main, and Friday from 9:30-10:30 a.m. at the church prior to the service. Interment, Kaysville City Cemetery. The family would like to thank Dr. Douglas Kasteler, Dr. Regina Klein and staff, and Hospice for their tender care of Lois during her final days.
