Bette RaNae Blaisure

Bette Ranae Blaisure, one of the most beautiful, loving souls to ever walk this earth, joined her eternal sweetheart in heaven on Friday, January 28, 2022, her 82nd birthday.  She was surrounded by her loving family. 

 

She was born on January 28, 1940, in the Scott family cabin on the ranch in Greenville, Beaver, Utah, to Joseph Russell Scott and Elizabeth Lillis Winn.  She was the fourth of six children. 

 

Some of her early years were spent on the ranch.  She had many fond memories there.  The family moved to TEAD park later in her youth and then to Tooele.  She and her two younger sisters, Lillis Jo and Claudia, were very close and were watched over by their older sister Helen.  They and their two brothers, Keith and Udell (Jerry) had some fun times together.  

 

She attended school at TEAD Park and then Tooele.  In her later years, she attended paralegal school in California.

 

She had the gift of laughter.  She would laugh so hard that those around her would join in, not knowing what they were laughing about.  She was a fun person and brought joy to all who knew her.  She was a beautiful seamstress and made many things, including wedding and blessing clothes for family and friends. She was gifted at crocheting and embroidery. She made many quilts, afghans and jewelry.  If there was a craft that interested her, she could do it. Many have special treasures from her.

 

She was a hard worker and didn’t have a lazy bone in her body.  She was constantly working and serving others. She loved canning.  She would begin in the early summer and go until late fall, canning everything she could from her garden.  She would then share it with everyone around her. She enjoyed gardening and loved flowers.  Pink roses were her favorite.  She owned an embroidery and quilting business. She also owned a catering business and did many weddings for people.  One wedding cake she made was 24 tiers.  She made many beautiful wedding cakes. She owned a successful janitorial business in California.  During that time, she met the lead singers of Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Fogerty brothers.  She became well acquainted with them.  When she attended a Creedence Revisited concert in Wendover, the drummer walked past her and recognized her.  Those were special moments in her life. She loved all types of music and especially enjoyed attending Alabama concerts.  Her family enjoyed going with her.  She was a talented dancer and owned her own dance studio after moving to Grantsville. She also worked at Smith’s, the Quality Inn and for the State of Utah until her retirement.  

 

RaNae loved tradition.  She loved attending the family reunions and enjoyed dancing at them to her daughter Shereen and son-in-law Darren’s band.  She and her siblings loved to dance. When they were all at the family reunions, they would sing and dance together, making for a wonderful show for the rest of the family. Their parents played many instruments and had a band when they grew up and they enjoyed carrying on those traditions.  A very special tradition she created was making gingerbread houses for her grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends.  She and her niece Sandy, would spend hours preparing and making them - many times making over 100, so the children could gather the Saturday after Thanksgiving to decorate them.  She also held an annual Easter egg hunt each year.  It was a huge event and she made sure the children went home with baskets overflowing with treats.  She loved going on camping trips. It didn’t matter if she was riding ATVs, boating, or just sitting enjoying the scenery and playing games, she loved spending time with her family in the mountains. One of her favorite things to do was to go cut Christmas trees with her son Travis and she loved the big Christmas trees he would pick out especially for her. 

 

RaNae is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  She has a strong testimony of it’s truthfulness and loves our Savior Jesus Christ.  She served in many church callings throughout her life; one of which was teaching the 11-year-old boys. She enjoyed taking them to camp at Tracy Wigwam. She also served as a temple worker in the Salt Lake Temple.  She served in that capacity for 8 years, until she had to quit because of her health. That was a very special time for her.  She made many special friends and had many special moments there.  

 

She adores and loves her family.  There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for them.  She supported her children in everything they did.  She did the same for her grandchildren.  She loves all children and they are very dear to her. To many neighborhood children  she became grandma RaNae, Aunt RaNae or their special friend.  She would gather her grandchildren to have tea parties, make cookies, or just play.  They created many special moments together.  While she lived in California, she and Larry opened their home to many missionaries. They became family.   

 

RaNae married Ronald (Ron) Warr.  They had five children together.  They were later divorced.  She met and married Lawrence (Larry) L. Blaisure.  They were later sealed in the Oakland Temple.  They lived in California for several years.  They later moved to the Benson Grist Mill to be the first tour guides there.  They lived there until Larry died a short time later. She then moved to Grantsville.

 

She is survived by her sisters Lillis Jo (Merlin) Warr, Claudia Phillips, her children Tammy Wright, Marvin Warr, Travis Warr (Jill), Shereen Brown (Darren), Robert Blaisure, David Blaisure, Jeff Blaisure.  She is also survived by her very special 19 grandchildren, Jeff Stewart (Tina), Teri Wong, Matt Stewart, Tiffany Davies, Jacob Warr (Becca), Anthony Martinez, Ashley Riches (Josue), Shelice Warr, Chris Duncan, Cuyler Brown, Jordan Brown, Rafe Warr, Chris Blaisure, Nick Davies and Veronica and Craig Moore; and 19 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren whom she adored. She is also survived by many special nieces and nephews, including Sandy Dare (Kelly) who was like her daughter. Each niece and nephew holds a special place in her heart. She also had a special closeness to her nieces Christy Gibson and Jody Cowan. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, sister Helen, brothers Keith and Udell (Jerry), sons Scott Warr and Larry Blaisure, son-in-law DLynn Wright , nephews Ricky Warr, David Scott, Greg Scott, and Gary Roten and ex-husband Ron Warr..

The true test of life is to see if we will endure to the end.  Mom not only did you endure to the end, but along the way you showed us what unconditional love is.  You showed us charity and what it looks and feels like.  You showed us the path to our Savior Jesus Christ.  We are blessed beyond measure to call you our mom, grandma, sister, aunt and friend.  Moments make memories and you left us with treasures. Until we meet again, may you dance in heaven and may you enjoy every moment of the peace you so deserve.
