Rosalind Wheeler Grotegut, 68, passed away on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. Rosalind was born May 1, 1952, to LaVon and Lynette Livingston Wheeler, in Payson, Utah. She was the first of five children. She grew up in Springville, Provo, and Spanish Fork, graduating from Spanish Fork High School.
Rosalind married William Bryan Grotegut on January 25, 1971, in the Salt Lake Temple. They lived in Spanish Fork, West Mountain, and most recently, in Orem, Utah.

She had three granddaughters who she adored: Megan Marie Grotegut, Jaylee Alise Grotegut, and Kiera Lynn Grotegut.
Rosalind grew up enjoying camping and playing the flute in the school band. She was an excellent seamstress and sewed most of her clothes, as well as gifts for others. Rosalind was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various callings throughout her life. Her heart was happiest serving in the Primary. She taught many Primary children, but especially enjoyed sharing her love for crocheting and sewing with a lot of girls.
She was involved in scouting for many years, supporting her sons who were involved as well. She worked several summers as a cook at Camp Maple Dell and had a tender heart for her ‘Scouts’.
She worked at the Provo MTC and always had a fondness for the missionaries there. Later, she worked as a cook at the Senior MTC. She loved working with and serving the senior missionaries. Most recently, Rosalind spent many hours crocheting blankets and toys to give away to those in need.
