They were adventuresome parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, who rarely missed a chance to enjoy, support and celebrate life.\n\nIn our view, Billie is now completely pain free and flowing with the love energy of us all. She has reconnected with her first born daughter, Kim, other family members and her animals she so loved.\n\nThe past several years of “long goodbye” notwithstanding, Billie had a full life. Most likely her favorite years were spent in large part exploring, hiking, bicycling, skiing and laughing while in nature. During these activities she enjoyed the company of family and many friends and always by the side of her hubby (sharing her gripes for sure, but mostly appreciating). They became quite the travel buffs and were able to set foot on many continents, see spectacular sights and snoop. Her endless curiosity made for unlimited hopes, dreams and plans.\n\nDeeply felt thanks to Bristol Hospice (with extra love to Ashley), Canyon Creek Assisted Living, Rosemary & Her Ladies and Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary. \n\nWe’d also like to extend gratitude to moms extensive ‘tribe’. Those who enjoyed the good times and supported through the down times. We are sure there are so many of you that we don’t even know about, please feel appreciated!\n\nBillie was born on March 2, 1938 in Salt Lake City to Frankie Maxine Bradley Soffe and William Lawrence Soffe. She was the oldest of two children. Her younger sibling is Betty.\n\nBillie graduated from South High and began college at Westminster, where she met her life-long hubby. She and Chet were married on Tuesday, September 2, 1958 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. \n\nBillie was preceded in death by her lovely daughter, Kim. \n\nBillie is survived by her wonderful husband Chet, their children Jody Withers (Ty) and Jeff (Sherri), their grandchildren Delainy & Sophia Withers and Teisha Bruin (Mike), their great-grandchildren Breanne & Michael Bruin and her sibling Betty (Jim) Sargent and family.\n\nHer Celebration of Life will take place at a later date, most likely in the spring. If you’d like to be contacted with the date of the Celebration of Life, please email email@example.com\n\nand you’ll be added to the list.\n\nAlternately, please check back here for the update :-)\n\n\n\n\nIn lieu of flowers, please leave a favorite memory or comment to the left, we’d love those. \n\nEnjoy at least a little bit of every day and hopefully a lot!
