Our beautiful daughter, Isabelle Holli Parr passed away December 1, 2022, at the age of 21. She was hit by a car while jogging in Provo that evening. Izzy was born December 21, 2000, to a warm welcoming family. She is survived by her father Matthew and mother Jennifer, her brothers Alex and Tate and sisters Portia and Mattie, grandparents James and Susan Tadje and Sheldon and Barbara Parr, and many other caring and loving cousins, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors.

Izzy had an incredible sense of style destined to become a fashion icon for her younger sisters. She loved thrifting and patterns and anything vintage. She recently worked at a boot and gun store where she acquired a few pairs of boots that only added to her style. We loved hugging her. She wrapped her arms around you and hugged you so tight and if you breathe in just a bit you can smell just the slightest hint of a vanilla cookie. And who wouldn’t love that?

She wanted to teach and work with children and youth. She attended Olympus High School and was currently studying at Utah Valley University where she thrived serving in the Mentorship Program. Izzy found joy in many things. She particularly found time for her scriptures, Harry Potter, glitter, watercolors, shoes, vanilla and people. She had perfect pitch and even though she didn’t like performing in public, whenever she sang we would stop and listen. What a joy our “Izzy Rooners” has been!

Isabelle and service go hand in hand. She recently served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at the Mormon Trail Winter Quarters visitor’s center in Nebraska and Wichita, Kansas. She cherished the people and all those who crossed her path there. I think my favorite quote she You just have to love people into place! would say was “You just have to love people into place.” She was love.

Izzy brought so much joy. She is light! She adores her Savior, Jesus Christ, and at the time of her passing she was firmly rooted in Him. Her current calling in her singles ward was Gospel Doctrine instructor. She made time to enter the temple. At this moment she is resplendent in the eyes of her Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and her family.

We will forever love you!

I just happened upon Izzy's obituary tonight and wanted to send my condolences to your family. We have a son almost the same age who also recently returned from a mission and while reading her about her felt the desire to reach out. I don't think I even know your family, but please know my heart is with you at this time.

I went to elementary with Izzy and boy she was a blessing in my life! If only I had the chance to tell her! I participated in Shakespeare with her in 5th grade, I will never forget her kindness and how the light of Christ shown through her. She was a friend when I had nobody and coming to school was hard. She was the type of person that left a mark wherever she went, with whoever she met. I will forever remember her and her gorgeous soul, smile, and personality. I hope we can all hold her memory close in our hearts and remember her example of kindness each and every day. I love you Izzy! 🌻💕

I went to school with Izzy since middle school. I worked with her closely at Leslie’s for a few years as well. I can say she was the absolute sweetest person in that entire school. Not being from Holladay I didn’t always have many friends and she would always say hi to me or include me. She always made me feel like I mattered.

Izzy was always really nice to me in high school. I remember her smile the most out of everything.

I remember one time in high school, I was bawling my eyes out, avoiding going to class, senior year was stressful lol. Izzy happened to be walking in the halls and she ended up sitting with me. Such a small thing for her to do but to me it made a world of difference. That's just what you knew to expect from her.

Lucky are the people she had in her life, she'll always be loved.
