|Death: ||Apr. 11, 2012|
Our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, teacher, and friend passed away unexpectedly on April 11, 2012, at the age of seventy-two.
Born January 20, 1940 in Murray, Utah to Hyrum Thomas and Wanda Kidd Eggett. She was the first in a family of eleven children. She attended Bountiful High School, graduated in 1958, and graduated from Weber State College in 1968.
She married John Vincent Welsh on September 8, 1962, and together they had two daughters. They were later divorced.
She was an elementary school teacher for thirty-three years in the Davis County School District, teaching second grade at South Bountiful Elementary for five years and third grade at Tolman Elementary for twenty-eight years. She taught over 900 students, many of whom were children of her former students.
She was active in the LDS Church and was a member of the Bountiful Twenty-Sixth Ward, where she held numerous callings. She had a very strong testimony of her Savior and was always willing to share her thoughts and stories with anyone who was in need.
She was fun loving, full of life, and cared more for others than herself. She was a loving mother of two daughters and her family was her whole world. She was passionate about the importance of having close family ties and was surrounded by a very caring extended family from all sides. She will always be missed and never forgotten. All of us that were blessed to have had her in our lives are better people for having known her. Life here on earth is not forever, Love Is.
She is survived by her daughters, Ginger (Mike) Johnson and Tamara (Mark) Lee; eight grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; four brothers; and five sisters; plus nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by her parents, one brother, a son-in-law, a granddaughter, and two nephews.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 21, 2012 in the Bountiful Twenty-Sixth Ward Chapel, 200 West 200 North, Bountiful, Utah. The family will receive friends at a viewing on Friday, April 20, 2012 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Russon Brothers Bountiful Mortuary, 295 North Main Street, Bountiful, Utah, and 9:45-10:45 a.m. at the church prior to the services.
