Elaine Hendrix Doxey (8 October 1931 – 1 January 2007)

Contributor: Simini Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Elaine Hendrix Doxey, elect lady, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister and friend, peacefully returned home to her Father in Heaven January 1, 2007. She was born Oct. 8, 1931 in Ely, NV to Leland and Laura Hendrix. She grew up in Sunnyside and Lund, Nevada and attended Lund High School; played E-flat alto saxophone, girl's basketball and was the Yearbook Editor. She attended Brigham Young University before marrying her eternal companion, Samuel G. Doxey, in the Salt Lake Temple, March 16, 1951. After becoming a mother to four children, at the age of 40 years, she returned to BYU and obtained her nursing degree; her favorite job being a Nursing Supervisor at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center for eight years. A faithful member of the LDS Church, she served in the Primary, YW MIA, Relief Society, and thoroughly inspired many as Gospel Doctrine Teacher. She and Sam served Public Affairs Missions in the Europe North Area and Salt Lake City, Utah. Beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside, her testimony of her Savior Jesus Christ and her Father in Heaven was unwavering. She fought her way through many difficult challenges, drawing closer to the Lord through each one. She recognized God's hand in her life and followed the many promptings she received - we have no doubt our mother knew the things that she taught us. We will sorely miss her and cherish her example and legacy. It was a privilege to have known her and an honor to be her children. She led by example! Elaine leaves behind her four children; 14 grandchildren; six great-grand-children; mother; sisters; brother. Preceded in death by her husband, father, and sister. We thank everyone for their thoughtfulness and prayers, with a special thanks to Pattie Keele and Dr. Marlan Hansen for their extraordinary personal attention.

The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
