Our beloved mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, Norma “Dranny/Granny” Sadie Larsen Boehme Wiggill, born February 6, 1925 and passed away in the arms of our Heavenly Father surrounded by family on March 4, 2021.
Survived by children, Camy (Dr Ross) Rosenwald, Marshall (Leslie) Boehme, Sandra Wright, Sondra (Blair) Kranendonk; stepchildren Maxine (Brad) Starkey, Ronnie (Larry) Tate, Brian (Darlene) Wiggill, Scott (Tracy) Wiggill, Brett (Troya) Wiggill.
Norma was one of 11 children born to Norman and Bergetta Larsen in Bountiful, Utah. Survived by siblings, Ralph (Shirley) Larsen, Claudette Larsen, Norman (Suzanne) Larsen, Scott (Laura) Larsen, Paul (Becky) Larsen, and Linda Larsen.
Norma lived life to the fullest. Her favorite thing was spending time with her family. If she was not visiting her family members in person, she was on the phone with them constantly. She was also a lover of the outdoors, going camping, water skiing, and traveling. She especially loved traveling to Alaska, which she visited nine times. Her life was filled with endless adventures and experiences that inspired those around her. She has jumped out of an airplane, rode in a bobsled, and in a race car.
A funny saying that Norma always said was that “her hands were lethal weapons and that they were registered.” Although we were never intimidated by her “registered” hands, we knew she meant business. Her attitude and sass kept us all in line or laughing. Her favorite song was “Uptown Girl” by Billy Joel. She always sang this song and those around would often join in; she would even request it during family Christmas caroling. She will always be remembered in our hearts as our “Uptown Girl”.
Preceded in death by her parents Norman and Bergetta Larsen; sister Virginia Larsen; brother Carl Larsen; sister Margene Reid; brothers Gordan and Larry Larsen; husband Elton (Bud) Boehme (married October 6, 1944); 2nd husband Max Wiggill (married January 1, 1990); son-in-law Ray Wright; and great-grandson Hunter Burke.
At this time, we would like to thank the Brighton House Care Center in Riverton. Their staff and the hospice nurses cared for Norma so lovingly.
