In Memory

Billie Netz

(May 14, 1946 - February 13, 2008)

MORGAN – Billie Georgette Neuteboom Netz passed away peacefully Wednesday, February 13, 2008 with her husband, her kids and her sister by her side.

She was born May 14, 1946 to George Neuteboom and Billie Santee. Billie grew up in Morgan, Utah and graduated from Morgan High School and cosmetology school.

Billie married Bobby Lee Netz on June 14, 1968. Bob and Billie were members of the Morgan County Search and Rescue where she enjoyed attending Posse conventions, pistol shoots, chuck wagon breakfasts and demolition derbies.

Billie cherished any time that was spent with her tight-knit family. She was her grandkids’ best babysitter and number one cheerleader. She rarely missed any of their games, concerts or programs. Billie was especially proud of all her firefighter guys. We threw the best family BBQs, birthday cake and ice cream, 4th of July and Christmas Eve parties. She was looking forward to cooking a hamburger at the property and taking a ride in the ranger.

She made sure we knew that she counted on our sense of humor and positive attitudes to get her through the rough times. We were very lucky to get to spend the last few days together as a family, right by her side—she wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. She has left us with a very special memory of how she had us all laughing at the hospital with her middle of the night talk about helicopters, falling off the floor, and the parade wave.

Billie’s family would like to thank Dr. Vincent Hansen and his staff for the kind, compassionate care she received during her treatment. She loved the ladies in the office and truly looked forward to her chemo days, which she considered her “social life.”

Surviving are her husband, Bob; daughter, Stacy and her husband, Tim Lafitte; son, Shawn and his wife, Tiffany; grandchildren: Lydon, Aaron, Brennon and Chaston. She is also survived by her mother, Billie Santee; her sister, Jill Carrigan and family; and her brother, Lyle Neuteboom and family; as well as members of her special California family.
