Julie Crookston

Julianne LaRee Sackett Crookston


1962 - 2021

Julie finished her earthly mission and returned to her Father in Heaven on October 18, 2021, surrounded by her loving family. She was affectionately welcomed by her family, whom she sorely missed.

Julie was born on July 14, 1962 in Logan, Utah, the last of four children born to Janice and Richard Sackett. Julie grew up in a wonderful neighborhood surrounded by great people who became life-long friends.

Julie attended Adams Elementary and Logan Jr. High School. She is a 1980 graduate of Logan High School where she participated in cheerleading. Julie worked part-time at LeGrand Johnson Construction Company.

Julie is a fabulous mother to three wonderful children. She always went the extra mile for her kids. Julie was a fashion plate, she was always dressed to the nines from head to toe. She loved to decorate for the holidays, both inside and outside of her home.

Julie wed Sid Crookston on September 9, 2009, they were later sealed in the Logan Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They are a complement to one another.

Julie felt her greatest calling was that of a grandmother to 20 precious grandchildren. Any time spent with them, was truly a perfect day.

Julie’s acts of charity knew no bounds, literally spanning the globe. She would often provide meals to missionaries throughout Cache Valley. From her son’s mission to South Africa, she became acquainted with Elder Chikara, and she provided for his daily needs. She did everything but adopt him. Julie also paid for the funeral of an elderly lady from East London, South Africa. From a young age, she learned it was important to pass on her blessing to others. Julie has a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Julie is survived by her husband, Sid Crookston, daughters, Brittney A. (Benjamin) Kemp, Teara S. (Nicholas) Wilson, and her son, Bronson L. (Alexis) Twitchell, her grandchildren, BentLee L. Kemp, QuinCee C. Kemp, Paizlie C. Wilson, Hallie S. Wilson, Tate N. Wilson, Addison K. Wilson, Easton L. Twitchell and Dax L. Twitchell. She is also survived by her father, Richard W. Sackett, and her sister, Sydney J. Sackett. She is survived by Sid Crookston’s children, Chris (Maria) Crookston, Aldon (Eva) Crookston, and Joe Crookston, and Sid’s grandchildren, Brayton, Aiden, Rose, Jennifer, Katina, Pandora, Sid, Veronica, Emma, Keira, Jillian and Alexa.

Julie was preceded in death by her mother, Janice J. Sackett, her sisters, Jeaniel Sackett and Jeanette Sacket, her grandparents, LeGrand and LaRee Johnson and William and Norma Sackett, and her in-laws, Newell and Glenna Crookston.
