EvaLue Jardine Thompson Bowen passed away peacefully in the evening of March 21, 2007 at Sunshine Terrace in Logan, UT. EvaLue was born at home in Clarkston, UT on July 2, 1925 to James Heggie and Margaret Buttars Jardine; the fourth of five children.
EvaLue married her first love, Fayne Weldon Thompson on April 23, 1942 in Preston, ID. To this union was born their only child, Bonnie Lue. EvaLue possessed a strong work ethic. Early in her marriage she worked along side her husband on the family farm. She labored plucking turkeys, worked at two dress factories and spent 25 years at Safeway.
After 18 years of marriage Fayne died on Nov 15, 1960. They were later sealed in the Logan LDS Temple October 23, 1993.
Single again, EvaLue and her good friend Ida McBride enjoyed traveling and spending time together. She met Paul W. Bowen and they were married at her home in Clarkston, UT on April 23, 1965.
She helped raise his four boys from his first marriage and loved them as her own. Paul shared her love of horse which gave them years of enjoyment. After Paul's death on Christmas Day of 2004, EvaLue moved from their long time home in Hyrum to Terrace Grove Assisted Living in Logan, UT.
She had a sweet tooth and her grandchildren knew there would always be cookies in the cookie jar. Those that loved her heard her say "What would we do without family?" The love of her family gave her life purpose and her faith gave it meaning and helped her recover from severe injuries sustained in a car accident in 1973 and to battle cancer in 1995.
EvaLue was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving as a teacher and in the Relief Society and Primary presidencies. She often said "If I don't go to church on Sunday I am confused for the rest of the week." Her inability to drive didn't stop her from regular temple attendance.
EvaLue survived her parents and sisters Margaret (Sid) Godfrey, Venice (Paul) Pedersen, Nadine (DeVerl) Hess, stepson G. L. Bowen, and grandson Ryan Bowen. She is survived by brother Ira (Margaret) Jardine, children Bonnie (Bill) Saurey, North Logan; Nick (Jill), Wellsville; Dewey (Tami), Garden City; Marshall, Mt Angel, OR; and nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and one great-great grandson.
Funeral services will be held at 12:00 PM on Monday, March 26, 2007 at the Allen-Hall Mortuary, 34 E. Center St., Logan, Utah. A viewing will be held on Sunday evening from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Allen-Hall Mortuary and prior to services on Monday from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. Interment will be in the Clarkston City Cemetery.
