Wendy Beth Rawlins Noyes

January 21, 1952 — May 5, 2024


Wendy Beth Rawlins Noyes passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by loved ones on May 5, 2024. Wendy was the last of seven children born to Eldoris (Dory) Rawlins and Peggy Rawlins in Bountiful, Utah on January 21, 1952. She attended Viewmont high school and Utah State University before meeting the love of her life Lynn Thel Noyes. They were married on February 5, 1971, in the Salt Lake City Temple. Wendy was an active member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and inspired many with her hard work and community commitment throughout her life. She held various positions in the church including Relief Society President. 

When Wendy was the Beehive Adviser in 1972 in the Clearfield 5th ward, she became a mentor to a 12- year-old. They quickly became best friends and have been best friends for 52 years. Wendy was the best example of how to be a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to this best friend. They often went grocery shopping and to get their hair and nails done together. Wherever they went there was always someone who knew Wendy and they always stopped her to say hello. She was a blessing to everyone she met.

Wendy’s home of 37 years, on Church Street in Layton, where she raised her four children, will always have a special place in our hearts. She was known for her abilities to bring people together and her love for decorating. She truly created a home wherever she lived. Wendy was always open to hosting and celebrating holidays with anyone who cared to join. We will all cherish the memories if her homemade feather rolls, Nauvoo syrup, and the best brownies ever made. She inspired all who knew her, but especially her many students in the behavior program at E.G. King Elementary. Wendy retired as a teacher’s assistant in 2015. Her patience and kindness with her special needs students was truly beautiful and many will remember her contribution to educating those young children. Wendy was known to adopt family and always had an open home and heart to every one she met.

She is survived by her husband Lynn Thel Noyes, her four children Colby Lynn Noyes (Jenny), Josh Eldoris Noyes, Jacob Eugene Noyes (Crystal), Abby Noyes Simpson (Paul), and her seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren. She is proceeded in death by her mother Peggy Rawlins, Father Dory Rawlins, brothers Bill Rawlins, Ben Rawlins, Bob Rawlins, Blair Rawlins and her sister Barbara Rawlins Hatch. 

Viewing will be held at the LDS church located at 1402 N Fort Lane in Layton, Utah 84041 May 9th at 10 am.

Funeral services will start at 11am.  Interment will be following at Lindquist Layton Cemetery.
