Gone Too Soon...

Janice Buckler
SEPTEMBER 10, 1961 – APRIL 4, 2017

Janice Buckler, 55, from Yakima, WA, fell gracefully into an eternal slumber Sunday, April 2, 2017.

Janice was born Sept. 10, 1961 in Brigham City, Utah. She has lived many places but had set roots in Yakima, WA for the last 24 years, where she worked, ran a business, managed her rentals and raised her family.

Janice is survived by her close family in Yakima which include; Husband – David Edward Buckler, Children - Felicia Lynn Bentz, Richard Brandon Lowry and Christopher Dan Buckler, Grandchildren – Whisper, Tannon, Natalie, Lilly, Kaitey, Lexi and Christian. Also surviving are her Siblings – Sherri, Curtis, Deniece, Marlene, Michelle, Gina and Dawna.

She will be greeted with open arms in heaven by Mother – Delphine Blanch and Father – Glen Parley Roche and Granddaughter – Hailey Faith Lowry. Janice was very artistic and excelled at many things. She was very ambitious about her pottery and painting which she showed at art exhibits and won awards. She would never hesitate to take her time at the local community college teaching others what she had learned from her years of experience.

Janice had so many hobbies it was hard to keep track of what she working on. From painting, pottery, embroidery, sewing, nothing was ever too much of a challenge for her to take on. But for all of that nothing seemed to make her eyes glow like rock hunting. She could find beauty in any rock and would always be looking at the ground for anything special to catch her eye. A passion she passed down through all generations and will be carried on for many to come.

For anyone who knew her well, she was Grandma Scooby to all the grandkids. She was always spoiling them and making sure they always had everything they wanted. There was not a moment that she wouldn’t drop everything to spend time doing anything with all of them. Always pushing them to be stronger and better at anything they enjoyed doing.

Janice was also the rock for so many, always a shoulder for anyone who needed. She has helped so many people become who they are today because of her big heart and compassion for those in need. Her loving smile and compassionate hugs will be missed.

Memorial services will be held at 2:00p.m. Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at Keith and Keith Funeral Home, 902 W Yakima Avenue in Yakima, WA.

Sterling Glen Roche of Brigham/Ogden, Utah

Death came like a thief in the night stealing a son, brother, husband, dad, grandpa, cousin, friend, and uncle away from us on July 4, 2020. This year's Independence Day was one for Sterling as well: freeing his tormented body from the monster within named Huntington's Disease.

Sterling Glen Roche was born in Brigham City, Utah on October 28, 1971, the son of Lorin Francis Roche and Mary Ann Bruderer Roche. He graduated from Box Elder High in 1990 and served a mission in Cleveland, OH, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. After his mission, he attended Universal Technology School in Phoenix, AZ, where he studied Automotive/Diesel Repair, graduating with honors in 1994.

Sterling began working with Arnold Machinery immediately after his schooling, and worked for them for more than 25 years.

He married Shelly Blanchard on March 13, 1999, and became a loving dad to three beautiful children in the process: Tori, Tristan, and Aubree. In 2003, they gained another daughter Melissa and in 2005, he rounded out his motley crew with the arrival of his youngest son, Samuel.

Sterling lived in North Ogden. He is survived in death by his parents, Lorin Francis and Mary Ann Bruderer Roche of Brigham, UT; his spouse, Shelly Blanchard; his children who were the joys of his life: Tori Montag, Tristan Blanchard, Aubree Roche, Melissa (Colton) Doxey of ND, and Samuel Roche. He is also survived by his nine adored grandchildren, his siblings: Sienna Elise Jade, Kayelynn Roche of NE, Ann (Travis) Noyes, and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Sterling is preceded in death by both sets of grandparents: Glen and Lucille Roche and Alma and Dorothy Jean Bruderer, and his brother Jeffery Roche, as well as numerous Aunts, Uncles, and cousins.

A small outdoor wake will be held this Saturday (July 11) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Memorial Lakeview Mortuary and Cemetery located at 1640 Lakeview Dr, Bountiful, UT.
