Our sweet loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend and wife, Faye Davis DeLaney, 81, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on December 4, 2020. She was born in Goshen, Utah on September 27, 1939. She met and married her eternal husband, Roger A. DeLaney, Sr. in La Sal, Utah on September 10, 1960. It was there that they started raising their family having their first children before moving to Grantsville in 1967. There they added 3 more kids. On September 10, 1982 their marriage was solemnized in the Jordan River Temple. She was a lady with many talents. She enjoyed raising her 7 kids. She was a fantastic cook. Not a lot of mothers could bake cinnamon rolls and change a starter on a vehicle all on the same day. She enjoyed her time working at Williams Coal and Lumber , Morton Salt and Wal-Mart, retiring to enjoy spending time with her grandkids. Later, volunteering at the elementary school in Grantsville where she became known as Granny Faye. She spent her last years supporting her grandkids in all of their adventures. If you ever needed to find her, she was sitting in her chair knitting something, whether it be sweaters or blankets for family and friends. She also made beanie hats for the babies in the NICU. She will be missed for her sweet personality and beautiful smile.
She is survived by Roger Jr. (Shelli) of Fruita, Colorado, Robert (Jennifer) of Grantsville, Bryan (Dani) of Grantsville, Sam of Grantsville and David (Katie) of Holladay, Utah.
