Bonnie Louise Broadhead Jones returned to her heavenly home on January 28, 2014. She was born on November 20, 1933 in Heber City, Utah to Alwin and Amber Broadhead. Bonnie graduated from Wasatch High School in 1952, where she participated in basketball, tennis, theater and cheerleading. In 1954, Bonnie was crowned Miss Wasatch County. Three years later, she accepted the call to serve as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the California mission. While on her mission, Bonnie met a fellow missionary by the name of Craig Jones, and they were both pleased to learn they would be released from the mission field on the same day.
Bonnie and Craig began their courtship soon after their missions and were married a year later, on August 28, 1959 in the Salt Lake Temple. They are the parents of four children: Barbara (Scott) Hunt, Stuart (Michelle) Jones, Jeff (Polly) Jones, and Scott (Tara) Jones. Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters Anita and Nona, and brother-in-law Blaire Rose. She is survived by her husband Craig, four children, sixteen grandchildren and one great grandchild.
Bonnie was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her greatest love was being surrounded by her family and supporting her grandchildren in their varied activities. She committed her life to the care, comfort and concern of others. Bonnie's home was filled with love, warmth, compassion, delicious food, family and friends. Visitors were always fed a homemade meal, whether they were hungry or not. Many people considered Bonnie their very dear friend; she made everyone feel loved and important. She will be remembered for her kindness, cheerfulness, optimism, selfless service, unconditional love, and her beautiful, constant smile—a smile that stayed with her until the end. She was devoted to the gospel of Jesus Christ and served faithfully in every capacity to which she was called. She especially loved serving with her husband, a Stake Patriarch, as his scribe for the past eight-and-a-half years.
The family would like to express their gratitude to all who provided love, prayers, friendship and support to Bonnie during her illness.
