Vicky Gustin Schwantes passed away peacefully Jan. 31, 2019, at her home in Vernal, Utah, after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. She was born in Tooele, Utah, on July 1, 1955, to Bill and Marva Gustin. She was raised in Grantsville, Utah.
She was a member of the Grantsville High School Lariat Drill Team, Grantsville Rodeo Club and the Tooele Bit n’ Spur Rodeo Club, where she was chosen as the Bit n’ Spur Rodeo Queen.
Vicky lead a very wonderful and adventurous life. She was always a very giving and caring person who put family first. She could put together the best and most enjoyable family and friends gatherings no matter the occasion. Vicky was a friend to everyone she encountered, whether work related, or someone she just met. Her heart was full of love, laughter, and a wealth of generosity. She started a little saying a long time ago, and it still goes on until we see each other again: “I Love You to the Moon and Back.”
Vicky is preceded in death by her parents, and her little sister Jackie Warr. She is survived by her husband, Greg; brothers, Bob (Sue) Gustin, and Glade Gustin; sisters, Karen Cook, Diana (Mitch) Walk, Billie (Keith) Bell; son, Shawn (Jen) Schwantes; daughters, Joey Thomas, Jessica Ragsdale, and Heather (Kurt) Landmon; five grandchildren, Ocia, Tatum, and Jayda Gillette, Garren Schwantes, and Mason Landmon.
There will be a celebration of life for Vicky on Feb. 23, 2019, at 11 a.m. at the Blackburn and Sons Vernal Mortuary.
