1991 ~ 2013
Our lovely daughter Ilona G. Flint returned to her Heavenly Father December 24, 2013. She was born March 21, 1991 in Naryan-Mar Russia, and she came to America with her mother at the age of seven.
Ilona graduated from the Walden High School of Liberal Arts in Provo, Utah in 2009. In 2005, in the 8th grade, she was a state finalist in Utah's "Do The Write Thing" Writing Competition. She had begun college classes at Grossmont Community College in El Cajon, California in 2012, and was engaged to Gianni Belvedere. She loved studying psychology, nature, music and playing piano, but she especially enjoyed being with those she loved.
Her father Jeffrey Allen Flint passed away in 2003. She is survived by her mother Inga Flint-Jones, her step-father Nathan Jones, her younger siblings Alina, Richard, Evelynn and Dmitrii, and the Flint and Belvedere families. Ilona loved her family, she loved her friends, and she was a loyal, smart and hard-working employee wherever she worked.
Private services in her honor will be held on Friday, Jan. 3rd at 2 pm at the Oak Hills Stake Center in Provo, Utah.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that friends give to the Ilona Flint Memorial Fund at any Wells Fargo branch. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.warenski.com
