Patty Rae Younce Ottley

11/16/1938 - 06/18/2023
Interment: Fir Lawn Cemetery

Patty Rae Younce Ottley, 84, passed away on June 18th, 2023, in Mesa, Arizona.   Patty was born on November 16, 1938, in Tremonton, Utah, the daughter of Ralph and Edna Hess Younce.  She graduated from Hillsboro High School in Hillsboro, Oregon, and attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where she worked in the President’s Office.  Later, she worked for various law firms in Oregon.  Her outstanding skills made her an extraordinary secretary and legal assistant.

Patty married LeRoy Ottley in Hillsboro, Oregon, on September 20, 1958, and they were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple a month later in October for time and all eternity.  Together they raised a loving and close family of four sons. Pat’s most cherished love and priority in her life was her family.  Pat and Roy shared many interests and adventures together.  They enjoyed travels throughout Europe, to Israel, Egypt, Mexico, Central America, Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and all fifty states.

Pat was an avid reader and loved music.  She was a family history enthusiast, writing numerous journals of their family history, as well as enjoying FamilySearch indexing.

Pat was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sharing her talents and testimony throughout her life through stake and ward leadership and teaching callings in Relief Society and Primary.  She and Roy especially enjoyed serving together in the Portland Oregon Temple as ordinance workers for seventeen (17) years.  They were then called to the Fiji Suva Mission and served a church mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the atoll of Tarawa in the Republic of Kiribati at Moroni High School.

Pat is survived by her husband, LeRoy; their three sons, Dean Todd (Shauna) of Mesa, Arizona, Robert Ray (Sandra) of Hillsboro, Oregon, and Cory Owen (Julie) of Bountiful, Utah; brothers, Geary Younce (Carol) of Fairfax, Virginia, and Doug Younce (Catherine) of Danville, California; sister-in-law Linda Empey (Charles) of Escondido, California; Carol Torrens (James) of Lehi, Utah; eleven grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.   She was preceded in death by their son, Randall Leroy (Connie), her parents and a grandson.

At her request, a graveside service will be held at Fir Lawn Cemetery, Hillsboro, Oregon, where she will be laid to rest near their son, Randy, and her parents.
