Midvale, UT—After a long and fulfilling life, Joy Levetan started her next journey on Dec. 7, 2021.

Joy was born in Saskatchewan, Canada the 6th of 7 children of Frank and Mary Capel. She lived in the Canadian prairie until her teen years in which she, her parents and younger brother moved to Utah. She married Eugene Levetan, later divorced, and they had 4 boys (Brent, Cory, Jeff, Daniel) together.

Mom had a zest for life and spirit of adventure. From getting her pilot's license at a young age, raising 4 equally high spirited boys, spending many fun-filled summer days at the Swimming and Tennis Club, starting her own business- The First Infant Care Center of Salt Lake, earning a UofU diploma at middle-age, becoming a Sister of the Third Order in the Society of St. Francis plus countless other undertakings, she made sure her life was eventful.

Love and care for family was her priority along with her faith. Attending services and being with her many friends at St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral was a love of her life. She leaves behind her 4 sons, 11 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. All of us will carry forward her love and spirit.

A service celebrating her life will be held Thursday Dec. 16, 2021 at 2:00 PM at St. Marks Cathedral 231 E 100 S, SLC, UT 84111. Following the service a reception will be held from 4:00 - 6:00 PM at Cottonwood Presbyterian Church 1580 Vine St, Murray, UT 84121.
