Tamara Pendley Frandsen

December 14, 1962 — September 7, 2023


Tamara “Tami” Jean (Pendley) Frandsen, 60, of Springville, Utah passed away September 7, 2023.  She was born December 14, 1962, in Englewood, Colorado.  Early in her life, she moved to Utah, and eventually made home in Provo, Utah.  She married her sweetheart William “Bill” Frandsen, November 23, 1979.  Together, they made a life in Springville, Utah with three kids, Cheltsy, Mitch, and Chase, along with many cats and three dogs throughout the years.

Tami’s most loved title was Grammy.  She loved all of her grandkids more than anything, and told them often.  She loved supporting them in their recitals and sporting events and cheering them on during performances, as well as talking books and playing games with them. Tami loved crafting, flowers, reading any and all books, and spending time with family and close friends.  She had the biggest heart and was often quick to be found supporting others through their times of need.   Tami had many health struggles and battled chronic illness over the years, which gave her great empathy and love for others who were struggling as well.  She loved her time spent working with United Way and enjoyed the relationships she built with the individuals she was able to get to know while driving them to their various appointments.

Tami is survived by her husband of 43 years, Bill Frandsen, her three children Cheltsy (Bryce) Moore, Mitch (Kori) Frandsen, and Chase (Jacey) Frandsen, as well as eight of her grandchildren (Bailey, Kayden, Aubrey, Lily, Connor, Ty, Maverick, and Marshall), her mother, Rosemary Pendley, and her brothers Blaine (MaryAnn) Pendley, Kevin (Tara) Pendley, and Jesse Pendley.  She was preceded in death by many loved ones, including her grandson, Brody, her father, Randy, her mother-in-law, Louise, and father-in-law, Richard.

A viewing will be held Wednesday, September 13, 2023 at Wheeler Mortuary, located at 211 East, 200 South Springville from 9:30 am-10:30 am.  A graveside service will follow at 11:00 am at Evergreen Cemetery, located at 1997 South 400 East Springville (on the east side of the cemetery). A family luncheon will follow the graveside service, located at 555 Averett Avenue, Springville.  Thank you to all of those who have loved and supported Tami over the years and have been a true friend to her.  We know you are all very special to her!
