Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister and wife Alice Fay Massey Gilley passed away at her home in West Jordan, Utah on Sunday, October 6, 2019 with her loved ones at her bed side.

She was born on March 5, 1944 in Hansford, West Virginia, daughter of Luther Carl Massey and Leola Dyer Massey.

She married Donald Edward Gilley on June 24, 1961 in Salt Lake City, Utah; marriage later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on January 14, 1975.
