Marva Jean Mounteer died May 15, 2022 at her home in Kearns due to Pancreatic cancer.  She was born on February 3, 1944 in Richfield, Utah, the 2nd child of Marvin Charles “Coty” and Louise Spencer Mounteer. Marva grew up in Escalante, Utah, graduating from Escalante High School in 1962.

She moved to Provo, Utah and attended Brigham Young University. She earned her way through school by working summers out at Bryce Canyon or the Grand Canyon. She graduated from BYU with a Bachelor of Science Degree from the Family Living Department in 1968. Marva was a true-blue BYU fan right up until the very end, even during the bad football years.

After graduating from college, Marva moved to Salt Lake City to work. She worked for New York Life for 25 years, then she worked for Deseret Mutual Benefits Association for 10 years, retiring in 2003 to help take care of her sisters, Myrna and Carol. Marva devoted many years of her life to taking care of her sisters. Her family is extremely grateful for her devoted service.

Marva and her sister, Peggy, bought a house in Kearns in 1995. Marva lived there until her death.

She was very active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all her life. Marva held numerous positions in the Primary, Young Women’s and Relief Society organizations.
