Alice Lenore (Boyle), 88, died peacefully from Alzheimer's Disease on September 16, 2012. She was born on October 6, 1923 in San Pedro, Ca. to Elmer Edwin Boyle and Alice Ann (Shill) Boyle. Lenore was preceded in death by her husband Richard by 3 days. She was raised in Arizona and Nevada and attended schools in both states, finishing High School at Mesa Union High School in Mesa, AZ.

Lenore enlisted as a Wave in the U.S. Navy in August 1944 and was stationed in New York City, N.Y. and San Diego, CA. She was honorably discharged from the Navy November, 1945. While serving in San Diego she met Richard Oyler who would become her devoted husband. They married on July 21, 1945. Lenore and Richard made their first home in Lone Pine, CA. and remained there for 25 years. She was active in P.T.A. and other community affairs. She was also a member of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers.

Lenore was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served faithfully throughout her life. She loved teaching gospel lessons and was a talented chorister for many years. She loved genealogy and researched much to gather ancestor's names for her posterity. She, along with her husband, served a full time Mission for the church in both Palau Micronesia, and Boston Mass.

During Lenore's teenage years she learned and mastered the use of her mother's Singer treadle sewing machine. She was a masterful seamstress and could produce anything from costumes and clothing to draperies and linens.

Lenore's legacy to her family was her caring, loving role as Mother. She cooked thousands of delicious meals for her children and friends and anyone else who happened to be in the house.

Lenore is survived by her 3 daughters, Sherman Dorsey (Jim), Garnett Jorgensen (Brent), Debra Meyer (Kim); 3 sons Grant Oyler (Chris), Richard G. Oyler, and Bryan Oyler (Susan); 23 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.
