Jean Reaveley Obit Notice

A beautiful heart took its last breath on September 15, 2015, as Jean succumbed to her illness surrounded by loved ones. Jean was born to Marvin and Pauline Dickson (Brunner) on February 27, 1929 in Heber City, UT. The family later moved to Salt Lake City, UT, where she grew up and graduated from South High School. Her first marriage was to Edward LaRocque (Rock) Campbell on August 14, 1946 in Salt Lake City. They were married for 27 years. She later married Donald G. Reaveley in Elko, NV on May 30, 1981.
Jean is survived by husband Don, daughter Vicki (Steve) Rogers, son Mark (Silvia) Campbell, and predeceased by son Brig Campbell and daughter Tori Larsen. Also survived by stepchildren Terrie McCans (Reavely) and Don Reavely, Jr., sisters Darlene Cornwall and Kay Hoagland, 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
Jean loved her family and friends fiercely, generously and unconditionally. Don was the love of her life for 34 years. His love for her was ultimately demonstrated by his loyalty and dedicated care during her illness, to the very end.
Her zest for life was evident in all her activities, interests and spontaneous nature. She was passionate about bridge, bowling, cards and anything else that came her way, and she made it fun for everyone sharing the experience with her. She was also an active member of the Women's Auxiliary of the Disabled American Veterans for several years and served as State Department Commander during part of her tenure.
Though she will be dearly missed, the qualities and character Jean possessed and so freely shared with others will live on in perpetuity through all the lives she touched.
The family wishes to acknowledge and express their gratitude to the staff of Legacy Village Memory Care and Aspire Home Health & Hospice for their compassionate care during Jean's final days.
Burial will be at Crestview Cemetery in Price, UT.
Private family services to be held.
