April 27, 1943 - September 12, 2019
RoAnna Preece Falslev, 76, passed away on September 12, 2019 at her residence in American Fork, UT. RoAnna was born on April 27, 1943 in Smithfield, UT to loving parents, Aileen Eva Munk Preece and Orlando K. Preece. In her youth, she lived in the beloved company of three brothers, Sherwood (currently living in Murray, UT with wife, Carolyn), Michael (deceased), and Lindsey (currently living in Hyrum, UT with wife, Sherri). RoAnna also shared the Preece household with three sisters, Karen, (currently living in Plain City, UT with husband Allan Housley), Lynnette Hale (currently living in Denver, CO with daughter, Kimberly), and Gay (currently living in West Point, UT with husband Reed Child). Shortly after graduating from North Cache High School, RoAnna married Larry J. Falslev, and together, they began building a life on a farm in Benson, Utah. Later, she enjoyed a brief career in retail while employed with Sears, Roebuck and Company in Logan, Utah. RoAnna harbored a great passion for learning. An avid reader, she always kept several books close at hand. She enjoyed sharing her love for music with others. For many years, RoAnna remained a loyal fan of Brigham Young University and the Kansas City Chiefs. She found joy in watching sports and in sharing the experiences with her friends and family. She never failed to express tremendous gratitude for the time and gifts she received from the people in her life. RoAnna often generously gave praise for the accomplishments and talents of those that surrounded her. Throughout her long and fruitful life, she remained a stalwart member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Furthermore, those who were close to RoAnna never doubted her faith in the teachings and eternal plan of our Lord and Savior; she passed in the comfort of this enduring faith. Of the most noteworthy mention and tribute to RoAnna’s legacy was her complete, unwavering devotion to family. Pictures of family and friends adorned nearly every inch of the walls of her residence. She cherished large gatherings during holidays and family events, and strove always to be in attendance, even while battling severe failing health. With every visit, she proclaimed her deep, abiding love and thankfulness for her three sons, eight grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren. That each member of her family knew—without question—that she loved them unconditionally continued to be her greatest desire in the last days of her earthly life. The immediate members of RoAnna’s progeny include her son, Darren Falslev (a police chief currently residing in American Fork, UT with wife Annette), Dennis Falslev (a market analyst and investor currently residing in Benson, UT), and Donald Falslev (currently residing in Colorado Springs, CO with wife Tara, both educators). Her grandsons include Nathan Falslev, Christopher Falslev (married to Shareena Taylor), and Kevin Blanchard (currently living in Golden Valley, Arizona). Her granddaughters include Daniel (married to Cody Jay Bills), Errowyn Samantha (married to Andrew Thulin), Brecca MaRynn (married to Cory Hansen), Kyra Sharee (married to Jake Morgan), and Alyssa Falslev. RoAnna’s legacy also includes seven great grandchildren, Piper Jean Thulin (4), Caspian James Thulin (2), Ronin Jefferson Thulin (1), Declan Jens Hansen (2), Marlee Falslev (11), Cambree Falslev (3 weeks), Margaret Emilia Bills (10 months).
