HEBER CITY - DeEsta Bond Jordan returned to her Heavenly Father Friday, December 16, 2005, at the age of 98.
DeEsta was born August 29, 1907 in Heber City, Utah to Lelia Clift Bond and Alfred Thomas Bond. She married John William Jordan May 23, 1925, in Provo, Utah. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. J.W. (Bill), preceded her in death November 1, 1987.
DeEsta lived through a most remarkable time in history, from the horse and buggy days, to flight into outer space. She was a very gifted and talented lady and had a keen sense of humor, always with a little story or funny incident to tell.
Her talents included knitting tiny beaded baby booties and making dolls, to digging and building a storage room underneath her home on 3rd East in Heber, and designing her present home on 4th East.
She was a faithful member of the LDS Church, serving in many capacities from Relief Society president, Primary president, Relief Society stake board, and many other positions. DeEsta was a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.
She enjoyed traveling in her son-in-law's Lear Jet to Florida, and on her 90th birthday traveling to London, England and Paris, France with her two daughters.
DeEsta is survived by Phyllis Christensen of Heber City, Clift (Jane) Jordan of Kamas Valley, Joyce (Tony) Burns of Miami, FL; daughter-in-law, Sharon Jensen of Midway; 12 grandchildren; 34 great-grandchildren; and 37 great great-grandchildren.
