Bonnie Joy SingletonMarch 18, 1934 ~ November 16, 2017 (age 83)
Our beautiful mom (grandma, sister, and friend) Bonnie Singleton passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday November 16, 2017. She came into this world into the loving arms of her parents, Max and Grace Elmer on March 18, 1934 in Payson, Utah. She was the firstborn of 5 children.
Bonnie grew up in Payson, Utah and graduated there. She took some classes at the Trade Tech (now UVU). She was employed at Taylor's Department Store for many years and loved it there.
Bonnie married Paul O'Brien in 1951 and together they were blessed with 4 children: Bob O'Brien (Debbie) Lake Shore; Rick O'Brien (deceased): Mike O'Brien, (deceased): Shari Snelgrove, Orem, Utah. They were later divorced. She married Dean Roberts. He passed away in 1968. She later married Ray Singleton. He passed away in 2003.
In 1984 Bonnie had a terrible accident that caused her to lose her short term memory. She was never the same after that. In better years Bonnie had a great personality and was fun to be with. She kept a spotless home and always looked like a million bucks. She loved her family and enjoyed what time she spent with them. Her caregivers loved talking to her and taking care of her. Our thanks go out to the Beehive Home and The Ashford Assisted Living.
She leaves behind 2 of her children, Bob and Shari, Jared-Rick's son whom she helped raise, 21 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren, 2 sisters: Merlene (John) Chasel St. George, Vonda Bouchard South Weber. Preceding her in death are her parents, brothers Richard and Dan Elmer and her husbands and many nieces and nephews and cousins.
There will be a graveside service at the Spanish Fork cemetery Tuesday November 21, at 1:00.p.m. Online condolences can be offered at www.olpinstevensfuneralhome.com
