Our beloved wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt and friend Aleece Pierce, age 77, passed away unexpectedly Friday, January 20, 2023 in Murray surrounded by her family.
She was born October 2, 1945 in Spanish Fork to Jack and LaRue Warren Jensen. She graduated from Orem High, class of 1963.
Aleece married Monte Pierce on February 13, 1964 together they had three sons Carey, Shawn and Robert.
Mont and Aleece lived in Edgemont and Springville before building their home in Mapleton. Aleece designed the layout of their home. Her open house plan was a unique concept for the time.
After working various jobs, she turned her love of antiquing into a business. Opening PJ’s Antiques in Springville in 1985. Mont and Aleece spent countless hours seeking treasures, restoring, moving and selling antiques during their 20 years in business.
If you were buying something from her at the store or visiting her at the house she would always offer you a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and expected you to eat something. If you didn’t accept, she would ask until you did.
She is survived by her loving husband of nearly 59 years Mont and her sons Carey (Jeanette) of Payson and Rob (Gena) of Salem, six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Aleece is also survived by her brother Jay Jensen (Lake Havasu, AZ). She was proceeded in death by her son Shawn, her parents, and sister Joy.
