Mary Whitehouse Lacey

4/8/1916 ~ 8/21/2006 "Together Forever" Our sweet, gracious Mary left this mortal life to join her beloved "Joe" on August 21, 2006. She passed away in her hometown of Tooele, Utah. Mary was born to Franklin and Mary Whitehouse on April 8, 1916.

She attended school in Tooele, Utah, graduating from Tooele High School. Mary married her high school sweetheart, Peter Joseph Lacey II, on June 1, 1940. They were later sealed for time and all eternity in the Logan, Utah Temple. Mary also attended Utah State University where she graduated with a degree in education. Besides being a devoted military wife, Mary also taught 3rd grade at various locations during their travels with the military.

Her grandchildren Tom Lacey of Tigard, Oregon, Susan Velasquez (Corey), and great grandson Cody Velasquez of Arlington, Washington, and sister Evelyn W. Martin of Tooele survive her. She was preceded in death by her husband Peter Joseph Lacey II, her son Peter Joseph Lacey III and daughter-in-law Stephanie Lacey.

The family would like to thank the Utah Veterans Nursing Home, Cottage Glen Assisted Living, and Mountain West Hospice for the wonderful care given to Mary during the last few years. We would also like to especially thank Russ and Teresa Whitehouse, Karen Hamm, and Beverly Winn who gave of themselves selflessly, devoting much love, kindness and time in caring for both Mary and her beloved Joe.

Funeral services will be held in the LDS 4th Ward Chapel located at 192 West 2nd South in Tooele, Utah on Friday, August 25 at 11:00 a.m. There will be a viewing one hour prior to the service. Burial will follow in the Tooele City Cemetery where the Utah Army National Guard will provide belated Military honors to Mary's late husband Joe.
