Leola Faye Neff Brady, age 90, beloved wife, devoted Mother of 9 children, loving Grandmother of 47 grandchildren, and 84 great grandchildren, life-long homemaker and faithful disciple of Jesus Christ, passed away peacefully at her home in Riverton, Utah on May 8, 2023. Many of her eternal family were with her at the time of her passing. She was the most pure expression of love that we know.
Faye was born to Stanley and Grace Neff on March 30, 1933 and raised in Crescent (Sandy), Utah on the family turkey farm. She attended Jordan High School, graduating in 1951. She married her high school sweetheart, K Madsen Brady, in the Salt Lake Temple February 20, 1951. After their marriage, K joined the US Navy and they both spent the next four years together in various US Navy locations, their favorite being Honolulu, Hawaii. Faye and K have been blessed with nine irreplaceable children: Brian Brady, Karen (Curt) Berriochoa, Kenneth (Kristee) Brady, Paul (Deanna) Brady, Gordon (Janet) Brady, Julie (Bill) Froust, Katy (Chris) Malovich, Jana (Paul) Martin, and Matt (Melissa) Brady.
Faye was always active in church callings and always supported her children in school, church, and sports activities. All of her children were taught to remember others in everything they were doing, to be honest, and to always to do their best. Her children know that no matter what, mom will always love them “a bushel and a peck and get a hug around their neck”. Faye and K were miraculously blessed to serve a full-time mission together in the London, England Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where Faye showed her true commitment and dedication to her beliefs and testimony of her Savior, Jesus Christ.
Faye had many interests from cooking, to sewing, vegetable and flower gardening, genealogy, family history, canning, writing poetry, and collecting hundreds of recipes just mention a few. She spent a lot of time researching family history and was always excited to share with her children and grandchildren the stories she discovered about her ancestors. You also knew you were special if she made you a bowl of rice pudding! Recently, her most exciting moments were talking with her family on the phone and sharing memories of her childhood.
Faye was proceeded in death by Stanley and Grace Neff (parents), LaVon Tanner (sister), Gordon Neff (brother), Lois Johnson (sister), Brian Brady (son), Ken Brady (son), Luke Brady (grandson), and Alex Brady (grandson).

“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.”(Proverbs 31)
