Kaye Madsen Hoskins

8/12/1944 ~ 9/13/2022

Marilyn Kaye Madsen Hoskins passed away peacefully September 13, 2022 at Canyon Breeze Senior Living in Orem, Utah. Kaye was born August 12, 1944 in Richfield, Utah to Vaughn D. and Dawn Gleave Madsen. She grew up in Fairview, Utah and spent most of her life living there among family and many friends. She loved the little community of Fairview and the wonderful people loved her. It was not uncommon to see her walking her little dog, going to the post office or walking to the elementary school where she worked as a teacher’s aid for 34 years.
Kaye had many hobbies. She enjoyed bowling, needlework, embroidery, puzzles, paint-by-number, and writing and receiving many letters from pen pals from all over the world. She also loved visiting with family and friends. She enjoyed being in the mountains. She loved the Fairview 24th of July celebration and was honored to be selected as Grand Marshal along with her father.
Kaye was a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She enjoyed her callings as secretary in the Primary and secretary and compassionate service in the Relief Society.
She is survived by her daughter Annjannette Thayne; her grandchildren, Taylor, Bryce, and David; and four great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her beloved brother Kip (Sue) Madsen, her sisters Susan (Richard). Spencer, Julie (Kim) Norman, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Curtis.
Our heartfelt gratitude to Jordan for all the kindness, compassion and extra service given to Kaye over the past year.

    I am so sad to hear of Kaye’s passing. She was such an amazing person and all of Fairview loved here. Please accept MY condolences. I cannot make the funeral because of prior commitments. I am happy that I was from Fairview as was she.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about Kaye’s passing. I worked with Kaye at Fairview Elementary for many years. She was so sweet and we all looked forward to visiting with her every day. I have missed seeing her walking her dog everyday. It was a privilege to know her.

    I would love to have just a few extra hours to attend Kaye’s funeral. But the day is already planned with our family. Growing up across the street from the Madsen’s was a big part of the best growing up year’s one could ask for. And later, I loved Kaye’s little house on main street and being just two doors down from her father was the perfect arrangement. I think of you kids often, along with your parents.
    Love you all!
