Rosa “Rosina” Shore

Rosa Shore
“Keep Your Eyes on Jesus”
Rosina’s signature phrases to her family when ending a conversation or a phone call were: “Keep your eyes on Jesus” and/or “I love you and Jesus loves you too”. It was important to her to share the Lord’s love with her family and friends, and she loved sharing her faith with others.
Rosa was known as “Rosina” to family and friends. Rosina was the name her dad wanted to give her but was not on the official list of names allowed on birth certificates in Belgium at the time, so it became her nickname.
Rosina was born on February 20, 1935 in Brussels, Belgium. Close to the age of 5-years-old, around the time World War II started, Rosina and her parents moved to Torino, Italy. She described her father, Giulio, as a “very brave man” who was part of the Resistance and unflinchingly stood up to the Nazis time and again. Our mom would share her experiences of living through the war with us: She remembered vividly air raid sirens blaring when her mother, Clara, grabbed her by the hand to run to a shelter. They were separated and Rosina was mesmerized by the sight of the planes dropping their bombs “like chickens laying their eggs”. Her mother finally found her and led her to a shelter; they held each other and said their goodbyes while the city was being bombed.
Her father was once in a car in which a bomb landed in the seat next to him (where Rosina herself had been sitting prior to the raid), but it didn’t explode; it was a dud and he survived. Rosina’s father was eventually arrested and sent to Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany. Her family miraculously ran into a fellow prisoner after the war who informed them that her father had died in the camp two days after the end of the war. Her father had said, “I don’t mind dying for the cause as long as I know we won the war,” and he did live long enough to see his dream realized. Rosina and her mother went to Germany to live with her aunt and remembered the “exhilaration” she felt when the war was over. Rosina was proud of her father for his bravery in fighting for what he believed in and giving up his life for it.
Later, her mother, Clara, met Giorgio Orsini on a train to Italy and they eventually married. Giorgio adopted and raised Rosina. When Rosina was 20-years-old, she remembered the American soldiers—who were more respectful than the Russians and threw chocolates to the children—and wanted to go see this awesome country who produced these wonderful soldiers. A wealthy woman, who also emigrated herself, sponsored Rosina’s passage to America on the Queen Mary. She paved the way for her parents to eventually join her in America.
Rosina met and married David T. Shore in 1959 and they had 8 children. They had been married for over 58 years. Our mom, Rosina, was the toughest woman we knew! She was a very loving mom and wife, and would do anything in her power for us and for anyone else. She loved spending time with her family and being at family parties. Rosina loved to go shopping and also enjoyed sculpting, painting, crocheting, gardening, interior decorating, attending the opera, and traveling throughout the years. She was fluent in 4 languages: Italian, French, English, and Spanish. Rosina loved her grandchildren and their company. She also loved animals and enjoyed the company of pets. Rosina was a substitute teacher in the Salt Lake City School District for over 25 years. She also taught French and Italian night classes. She modeled being a hard worker.
Rosina was preceded in death by her father, Giulio Guerrini, her mother, Clara Orsini, and her father, Giorgio Orsini. She is survived by her loving husband, David T. Shore; her 8 children: David (Kathaleen), Jonathan (Maria), Michael (Judy), Gabriel, Anna Maria (Mark), Raphael, Elizabeth (Joey), and Timothy; 14 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. A special thank you to the staff @ St. Joseph Villa, Intermountain Utah Dialysis, and University of Utah Hospital for all of their special care and services to Rosina.
A funeral service will be held at City View Memoriam, 1001 11th Avenue, Salt Lake City, Utah 84103 on Saturday, April 15, 2017 @ 2:00 p.m. with a viewing one hour prior to service @ 1:00 p.m.
Rosina will be dearly missed. We love you mom and Jesus loves you too! “Keep your eyes on Jesus!”

Butch loved life to the fullest. He took great pride in his home and yard, he loved working with animals especially their dogs. He loved having sleep overs and taking his grandkids camping, fishing and just hanging out. He has spent many hours helping friends, family, neighbors, & anyone else that needed help NO job was too small or too large, he was there to help.
He built a lifetime of fond memories with all of his family and friends.
One of Travis’s memories is when he was 5 years old and Dad road his BMX bike backwards and watching him be a GRAND FATHER to my children.
One of Trudy’s best experiences with her father was when they traveled to San Diego. They got to travel for days on end and experience the taste of freedom. Trudy wants to keep that experience in her mind and heart forever.
Not only have we sisters lost our brother we have lost our “best friend”, “our savior” and the “best fishing buddy ever”. He always caught “the biggest, the bad-est and the most-est fish of all” (he really did!)

Andrew James Cope


Andrew James Cope
In Loving Memory

On Friday, January 13th, 2017, Andrew James Cope passed away peacefully after a difficult fight between his failing heart and a bout of RSV pneumonia.

Andrew was born on September 12, 1992, only 20 minutes after his parents reached the hospital. Born with several heart defects and Down Syndrome, Andrew was popular with the hospital staff—both because of his advanced medical needs, and his elevated cuteness. He was an adorable baby.

Throughout his life, Andrew brought joy and difficulty to those around him. Ever the prankster, Andrew enjoyed breaking household objects, hiding things, and telling jokes about setting people’s hair on fire. Just a few weeks before his death, he hid every pair of pants his mother owned. They have not yet been found.

Andrew pursued many passions in his 24 years of life, including trains, Fig Newtons, pretty girls, music, fire, toilets, dogs, and keeping a strict schedule. He has held (unpaid) jobs at the Corner 22 gas station, numerous bowling alleys, Smith’s Marketplace, and the DATC in Davis County. He frequently went to Dick’s Market to buy M&Ms or Swedish Fish. He has also become known for his loving character, his willingness to laugh (and make others laugh), and his caring obsession with his nephew. Despite how rarely he spoke, he has always been very expressive and sympathetic, and was often moved to tears by the sadness of others. (Adele, for instance, always made him cry. As she does to so many of us.)

After struggling to breathe for several days, Andrew passed away shortly after a final father’s blessing from his dad. He will be missed by those he has left behind, but he will be welcomed with open arms by those who have gone before him, and his presence will continue to bless his family for years to come.

Andrew is survived by his parents Ray and Naomi Cope, his sister Rachel Unklesbay, his brother-in-law Ethan Unklesbay, and his nephew Jonathan. He is also survived by his Grandma Keener-Fast, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. The family would like to offer special thanks to Andrew’s cardiologist Dr. Ron Day, as well as the wonderful staff at Primary Children’s Hospital and all of Andrew’s devoted friends. He has so many friends.

Funeral services for Andrew will be held at the Hidden Chapel, 1450 S. 350 W., Bountiful, Utah on Saturday, January 21st, 2017 at 11:00am. Viewings will take place Friday, January 20th, from 6-8pm, and Saturday morning at 10am, where Andrew will be forced one last time to wear pants to a public event.

Burial will follow at Bountiful City Cemetery, 2224 South 200 West, Bountiful, Utah. Condolences may be sent to the family at

Robert Mark Satovick M.D.


Robert Mark Satovick M.D.
In Loving Memory

Robert (Bob) born in Midvale, UT, on January 1, 1936, to Mark Robert Satovick and Pauline Francis (Vidic) Satovick, passed away January 13, 2017, in Salt Lake City, UT.
Bob was a graduate of Jordan High School in 1954, where he received numerous academic and athletic achievements. He won a Utah State Debate Tournament title, and the American Legion Oratorical contest. Bob was co-captain of the Beetdigger football team, and was selected to the first team Utah-All State football, his senior year. Bob went on to attend Columbia University, New York, N.Y., on a four year national scholastic scholarship, where he was captain of the football team, and earned All-Ivy. He was an officer in the Sigma-Chi fraternity, where his efforts and beliefs had profound and lasting impact. He graduated from Columbia University in 1958 in pre-med, and earned his M.D. from the University of Utah School of Medicine, in 1962. Bob completed his Medicine Internship at Boston City Hospital, in Boston, Mass., and served a Medicine Residency at the University of Utah Hospital. He then completed a Neurology Residency at Harvard Neurological Service of Boston City Hospital, and a Neuropathology Residency at the Harvard Neuropathological Unit of the Mallory Institute of Pathology.
Following residency, Bob entered the Navy as Lt. Commander and was appointed Chief of Neurology at the U.S. Naval Hospital on Guam. Following his service in the Navy, he joined the staff of the University of Southern California as Assistant Professor of Neurology. He returned to Utah in 1970 to join the staff of the University of Utah as an Assistant Professor of Neurology, where he established the Stroke Intensive Care Unit at the University of Utah Hospital, and subsequently served as the first director of the Intermountain Regional Medical Program (IRMP). Bob’s dedication to neurology and teaching led him to LDS Hospital in 1972, to become Chief of the Division of Neurology and Director of the Neurology Training Program, positions he held for 18 years.
In 1972, he co-founded Western Neurological Associates (WNA), in Salt Lake City. Along with his duties at LDS Hospital, Bob had a very successful practice of general neurology with WNA. Following retirement in 2004 from full-time practice at WNA, and in keeping with his commitment to patient service, he worked as a consultant in the Compensation and Pension Clinic at the Salt Lake City VA Hospital until 2012.
Bob considered his medical career one of the greatest accomplishments of his life, made possible by the many hundreds of patients he cared for who taught him compassion, humility, and respect.
Bob met Bonnie (Yvonne Kay Reiber) during medical school and they married in 1963. They had two sons, Christopher and Nicholas. He enjoyed family dinners and trips to Sun Valley, ID, and Carlsbad, CA, with Chris and his wife Michele, and Nick and his wife Heather, along with their two sons, Nate and Sam.
Bob enjoyed collecting salt water fish for his homemade aquarium on Guam, fly-fishing, playing tennis, and teaching his sons to ski. Bob never shied from any debate, and the livelier the better. In fact, he often said if he had not been a physician he would have been a trial attorney. In retirement, Bob read over 700 books, and was a science fiction junkie. On nights when it was difficult to sleep, he could often be found in his favorite chair, sipping fine tequila and watching an episode of Star Trek for the umpteenth time.
Bob applied the following quote from his favorite high school algebra professor to every endeavor he pursued, “All great men think clearly and if you are to be great, you too must think clearly.”
At Bob’s request, there will be no formal memorial service. You may choose to honor Bob’s life by making a donation to the Utah Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in his name. Both Bob and the Society would be appreciative. Considering Bob’s beliefs, it is possible that he may meet you again in a parallel universe.
