The funeral service will be live-streamed here.
Miley Jade Rhoades, also known as "Little Jean", age 14, of Tabiona, was taken from her family in an unfortunate UTV accident on May 30, 2023.
She was born March 25, 2009, in Roosevelt, Utah, to Chase and Tomi Thomas Rhoades. She was a perfect little butterball, with the most unique head of hair.
Miley lived her whole life in the beautiful, peaceful valley of Tabiona, where she was completely content to never leave. Her favorite thing to do was play sports! She had such a love for the game of basketball and played with her whole heart. Her tiny stature and fierce drive was hard to go unnoticed. She also enjoyed being a cowgirl, and riding into the High Uintas with family and friends. She loved to fish and connect with nature. This was something she talked about often! Herding cows with her grandpa and riding "Big Brute" was always a pleasure. Jean was always outside actively jumping on the tramp, riding bikes, helping her dad on the farm, and playing with her sisters. She had many friends, and everyone gravitated toward her calm, quiet, and confident disposition. She may have been the closest thing her parents could get to a son.
Mighty Miley was a spitfire (if needed) and her mom's mini me! Nothing made her mother prouder than that title. She always had a mischievous smirk, and a funny face to pull to make you laugh. Miley was constantly accused of being the "favorite", and had her dad wrapped around her finger. Her big beautiful smile, amazingly thick gorgeous hair, and her freckles could brighten any room.
Miley is survived by her parents, Chase & Tomi; her sisters, Mersadie, Maycee, MacKlee, MaLayka, and Mycah Rhoades; grandparents, Craig & Rosalyn Thomas, and Ervan & Jan Rhoades, all of Tabiona; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
She was preceded in death by an aunt, Terra Thomas; and great-grandparents.

Burial will be in the Tabiona Cemetery.
