April 21, 1934 — June 16, 2022

Janean Arave Dickamore was reunited with her lover, Grant Elmer Dickamore, on June 16, 2022, after passing away peacefully at home with her children by her side. She was born on April 21, 1934 in Ogden, Utah, to Lewis Lavon and Edna Stark Arave.

She met her husband Grant while working on her uncle’s farm while she was still attending Weber High School. They were married and sealed for eternity in the Logan Utah LDS Temple on February 16, 1954, while he was at home on military medical leave after being injured in Korea. They settled and raised their family in South Weber, Utah and spent nearly 62 happy and loving years together before his passing.

Janean was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She has served in many Relief Society offices and various other callings over the years. She enjoyed serving others and especially enjoyed bringing people dinners.

She was skilled in handicrafts such as: sewing, quilting, embroidery, crocheting, knitting, and ceramics; and has been the recipient of several blue ribbon awards. She also enjoyed playing golf and watching softball, traveling to many games during her life. She loved parties and playing cards, always hosting weekly card games until the end.

Janean was a fan of roller coasters, believing that the higher and faster the better. She even told her grandson a few days before he died how much she loved them and that if she could still ride them, she would.

Janean was predeceased by her eternal companion, her parents, and her twin sister Joanne Thornock.

She is survived by her children; Lynn Dickamore and Gaye (Jim) Stoddard, grandchildren; Jamie (James) Larsen and Jenifer (Dallas) Wilberg, six great-grandchildren, and siblings Dennis Arave and Deon Sommers.

The family would like to thank the team at Aspire Home Health and Hospice for the care provided to Janean during her final weeks.

In lieu of flowers, donate to your favorite charity.

Until we find mum/grandmother. We love you a bushel and a kiss!
