Rosalind Wheeler Grotegut May 1, 1952 - April 27, 2021

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 was the proud mother of five boys: William Brent (Erin) Grotegut, Chad (Amanda) Grotegut, Jason Lee (Jennifer) Grotegut, Jared K. (Jill) Grotegut and Christopher Bryan Grotegut. 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.

She is survived by her husband, children, two granddaughters, three sisters and her brother. She was preceded in death by her parents, and granddaughter, Kiera.

    I worked with Roselabd at Tele-performance she was always giving me encouragement and helping me. She made me a beautiful dress for my daughters wedding. She was always very loving and kind. She had a heart of gold and made sure those around her were ok. I’m sorry for your loss of such a wonderful person. Sending my condolences and love you each of you.

    I am so saddened by Roselind’s passing. It was a blessing to be in her ward in West Mountain and to work with her in the food services.
    May the Grotegut family be comforted at this time.

    I’m so sad to hear Rosalind has left this mortal existence. It was great to work at the scout camp fixing the cooler and freezer for her.
    I hope Brian and her boys and family find comfort in her passing.
