NOORDA, JOYCE  
JOYCE NOORDA A beautiful spirit, Joyce Elaine Silfvast Noorda, 84, returned to her Heavenly parents, earthly parents, and daughter Robyn Kaye Varley Aug. 19, 2016, three days before her 64th wedding anniversary. She entered this world June 20, 1932 in Salt Lake City, to parents Dorothy Phyllis and Andrew William Silfvast "Monnie and Bopps." She married her personal superhero, Albert G. Noorda Aug. 22, 1952 in the Salt Lake City temple for time and all eternity. Together they raised five children, Christyn Andersen, Robyn Varley (deceased), and Cal, Barry, and Roger Noorda. Born into a family of musicians, Joyce's mastery of piano, organ, and music lifted, enriched, and blessed, whether as a casual Saturday night hootenanny, a formal Easter/Christmas cantata, or volunteering to play Christmas carols at assisted living centers. By age 20 she was a beauty pageant winner, a university student, and a synchronized swimmer. Around that same age, she was so impressed by the family life cultivated in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that she investigated and joined the church and remained an active, loyal, lifelong member. Joyce loved music, Lake Mead, community service (Assistance Junior League), playing bridge masterfully, snow skiing, tennis, and throwing parties (aka "the party machine"). She made people comfortable with a flavor to be enjoyed. The past few years her previously exceptional memory faltered. Alzheimer's could not diminish her love of family and her family's love for her. Living with her granddaughter Jennifer, Joyce received extraordinary care that only comes from family. Joyce is survived by her husband, Albert George Noorda; her brother, William T. Silfvast (Susie), four children (and spouses); 17 grandchildren (and spouses); and 15 great-grandchildren. Visitation will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25 at the Robindale LDS Chapel, 7885 Robindale, Las Vegas. Funeral services will be 10-11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 26 at the Robindale LDS Chapel, 7885 Robindale. Graveside dedication will follow at 11:30 a.m. at Palm Valley View Memorial Park, 7600 S. Eastern Ave., Las Vegas. Love, Life-both eternal.

BOUGHNER, MURIEL  
MURIEL BOUGHNER "The Mooter," Muriel Leatrice Boughner, of Las Vegas, passed away Aug. 12, 2016, five days after celebrating her 89th birthday with family and friends. Muriel led a full life filled with more joy than sorrow, more fun than boredom, more friends than foes and more lobster than lentils, and she loved lentils, too. When she reflected on her life, she often spoke openly and from her heart of her lovely parents, Rose and Phil Levine, her best friend and husband, Bill Boughner, her older and community-minded sister, Charlotte Beck, brother-in-law, Eugene Beck, and her dear friends, Herb and Judy Paige. She enjoyed sharing memories of camping trips across the United States, from Alaska to Florida, cruises throughout Europe, and her pilgrimage to Israel. Muriel collected magnets from each destination she visited and displayed them proudly on her refrigerator. She enjoyed the reminders of her travels every time she had a slice of muenster cheese, her favorite snack. Her greatest joy came when she visited with her family and friends. She always had something to contribute to the conversation, but was quick to acknowledge that she took away more than she gave. The smiles, hugs and "kvelling moments" were the things she cherished most, far more than any material possession. Muriel had a few nicknames. She went by mom, mommy, grandma, "Mutzie" and "The Mooter." She answered to all of them. "The Mooter" leaves her four children, each a successful entrepreneur of their own device, Steven, Bob, Andrea and Lisa; three grandchildren, Jennifer, Sara and Rene; five great-grandchildren, Jordan, Jacob, Lucas, Logan and Jamie; two nieces, Karen and Debbie; and three nephews, Alan, Michael and Scott. They all loved "Mutzie." She also leaves behind her lasagna recipe, but not everyone (although some) loved that. She is smiling as she reads this. The family would like to thank her friends and caregivers Angela, Cindy, Taeko and Maureen for your dedication, professionalism and love. Service will be at 11 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 21, at Temple Emanuel, 150 Hicks Lane, Great Neck, NY 11024. Shiva will be observed 3-9 p.m. at the home of Steven and Susan Boughner, 19 Mary Lane, Old Brookville, NY 11548.
