Lynette Mattingly Fisher (74) of Salt Lake City passed away on January 18, 2013 in Rupert, Idaho.
Lynette was born in Pocatello, Idaho to Dale E. Mattingly and Laura Elaine Holdaway. She was part of the 1956 graduating class of West High.
Lynette was very outgoing. She loved to talk to anyone and everyone. Lynette loved to plan parties, reunions, and vacations-anything that could benefit from her creative mind and that might bring people she loved together.
Lynette had a wide variety of jobs in the various communities that she lived in. She served as the County Treasurer in Wayne County. She spent years as an aide and substitute teacher in the Carbon County School District where her great capabilities with the students far outweighed the education she had received. Her love and care so profoundly influenced the students that many have kept in touch and noted it through the years.
She served as office managers of Castle Press and Turner Lumber in Price. Most recently she served as the office manager of the Foster Care Citizen Review Board in Salt Lake City.
Everywhere she worked she found people to love, skills to perfect and a way to succeed in her position. In each of these places she found people that dearly loved her too.
Lynette was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she had many callings that she learned to love and that allowed her to serve Heavenly Father and her fellowman.
Funeral arrangements provided by Larkin Sunset Gardens at 1950 E. 10600 S., in Sandy. Viewing Thursday evening 6 - 8 p.m. Friday viewing starting at 12:30 p.m. with the funeral at 2 p.m.

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
