Bonnie Lou Day
Born: 3/30/1941, Salina, Utah
Bonnie was raised by extremely loving and nurturing parents and these attributes were definitely passed on to her. Her love for her Heavenly Father, family, and friends were her greatest passion.
Bonnie met her soul mate, Larry J. Day, while attending Grand County High School. They were married June 22, 1959, in Moab, Utah. Together they raised three children. Their family spent all of their spare time camping, hunting, boating, jeeping, and just having fun. In their later years they built a beautiful mountain cabin together.
As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Bonnie participated in many church callings. She also worked in varies occupations, such as banking and education. With all of this, she still manage to be the greatest cook, keep an immaculate home, and crochet beautiful afghans for every single family member including siblings.
Our mother will be so missed! She devoted her life caring for her children, grandchildren, and husband. Her heart was broken after losing our father on September 9, 2010, and it never quite healed. We feel so honored to be blessed with the most wonderful mother in the world! She gave us the greatest gift of all, love and compassion. She taught us in times of trouble, that we could always count on our Heavenly Father and our family. We are so thankful for the example she set for us. Her beautiful blue eyes, her smile, and love will be in our hearts and souls to live forever.
Bonnie is survived by her 3 children, Larry Kim (Betty) of Grantsville, Todd (Robin), of Price, and Tricia (Dave), of Kansas City Missouri. Ten grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Brothers: Craig (Dixie), and Kirtly (Gay). Sisters: MoNene (Bill) Manzanares, Dana (Norm) Springer, and SuEllen (Richard) Denison. Sister-in-law, Glenda Nordfelt. Brother-in-law Gary Day. Waiting for her on the other side were her husband Larry J. Day, parents, granddaughter Sidney Ellen Day, brother Dennis Nordfelt, and sister-in-law Doralyn Nielson.

Tributes:To the Day and Nordfelt families, I had planned to attend the services today but my furnace is not running and I have to wait for the repairman to come. Many fond memories. When we came in 1957 Jr. Nordfelt was a counselor in the bishopric with Bishop Harry Snow and Dan Holyoak. We watched the Nordfelt children grow up and the girls used to watch our little Debbie for us when we went to church. So much would love to visit with you all.
- Mary Jane CozzensI'm so sorry to hear about Bonnie's passing. I so wanted to visit her again but last time I was in Moab I found she had moved to Price. I know she was looking forward to being with your Dad again. We expressed how much we missed our sweet husbands the last time I visited her. Sending all my love.
- Gay M. StocksYou don't know me, but I had to do this. My mother was a Day (Irene Day,Oviatt) you probably don't know her either. but I knew stanley and Dorlynn. Stanley was my sister-in-law's, brother. They were good friends with my brother Dale Oviatt. while they were in moab. after the moved to Clawson, I became very good friends with them. I know all their kids, my memory isn't as good as it used to be (i'm) 82. I can't come up with the oldest son's name right now, but Terry Lynn, is still in Price I think. and Randy still lives in clawson. I see him every so often. well I'll close this now. I hope your not offended, but I wanted to send my gondolenes(not good at spelling). Father in Heaven will help, you. just believe.
