January 20, 1930 ~ May 17, 2018

I, Dorothy Buck Arave, was born January 20, 1930, to Charles Leonard and Edith Saunders Buck. I passed away on May 17, 2018, in my home, surrounded by my family.

I have one brother, Boyd Buck (deceased), and four sisters: Marian Creamer, Donna Thompson (deceased), Marie Johnson (deceased), and Betty Lou Schulze.

I was married to Kenneth C. Arave on May 27, 1947, and Oh! What a posterity we have! We have five children: Kathleen (Ralph) Avis, Ilene (Dwight) Carey, Len (Carol) Arave, Tracy (Leisa) Arave, and Lynette (Dan) Knighton.

We have 23 grandchildren; 56 great-grandchildren; 13 great-great-grandchildren, and more coming (don't let me down). We don't care how they came into our family - we love all of them.

I love my Heavenly Father and my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have worked in Sunday School and Mutual. I was Primary President and worked in Primary for many years. But, my favorite callings were librarian and visiting teaching.

I had a great life and great friends. So good-bye for now.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, May 29, 2018, at 11 a.m. at the Sunset 2nd Ward, 220 West 975 North, Sunset, Utah. Friends may visit with family Monday, May 28, 2018, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lindquist's Layton Mortuary, 1867 N. Fairfield Rd., Layton, Utah and Tuesday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the church. Interment, West Point Cemetery.

No flowers, please, send donations to The Huntsman Cancer Institute at in memory of my granddaughter, Geri Dominguez Muir, and my son-in-law, Richard Ukena, both of whom died of cancer. That would be appreciated.
