Sandra Jean Neff, 59, was found dead in her home on north Beeline Highway Monday night.
The Payson Fire Department was called to the home at 6 p.m.
When crews arrived, they found Neff lying on a bed. She had no pulse. After further examination, paramedics determined that Neff had been dead for some time.
"No resuscitative efforts were performed," said Payson Fire Battalion Chief Guy Austin. "Our guys put a monitor on her to confirm that there was no electrical activity of the heart. That was the extent of it."
Neff was the owner of LaCasa Pequeestaurant in Payson.
