Dorothy Ann Bennett Bouy

January 6, 1947 — February 16, 2024

Dorothy Ann Bennett Bouy, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend returned into the arms of our loving Heavenly Father in the early morning hours of February 16, 2024.  She was born on January 6, 1947, the 7th of 8 children to George H. Bennett Jr. and Gladys Norma Ellery.

She grew up on the family farm in Syracuse, Utah and graduated from Clearfield High in 1965, where she met the love of her life, Glen Bouy.  It was love at first sight.  They were married on December 12, 1968, in the Salt Lake Temple.  Together they had 6 children, Stephanie, Jennifer, Michael, David, Dennis, and Steven.  Her family was her greatest joy.  She loved and cared for them with her whole heart.  She was a wonderful example of service and always put others’ needs before her own.  

She was a life-long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and willingly served in all that she was called to do.  She and her eternal sweetheart served an LDS mission to Independence, Missouri.

While she did not particularly enjoy the outdoors other than the scenery, she still willingly went camping, fishing, hiking, and four-wheeling because of her deep love for her family, which is where some of her fondest memories were made.  One of her favorite ways to spoil her family was the annual Bingo game at the Christmas Party, ensuring each person won at least 2-3 prizes.  She loved playing games and was EXTREMELY competitive.  

Dorothy was a wonderful wife, mother, homemaker, seamstress, cook, referee, and ultimate caregiver.  At the age of 42 she graduated with her nursing degree.  She worked at several different hospitals but spent most of her career at Primary Childrens Hospital.  On their mission she served as the mission nurse and upon return, worked for DMBA/Missionary Medical.  She loved her job and, with mixed emotions, decided to retire in 2018 to spend more time with her sweetheart.

Mom was extremely talented at sewing and piecing quilts.  She loved making pillowcases for her 21 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.  Everyone looked forward to receiving these priceless gifts at the annual family reunion and again at the family Christmas party.  It brought her much joy to create one-of-a-kind quilts for her family.    

We will miss our sweet angel Dorothy but find peace in knowing we will be together again.  She is survived by her eternal companion Glen and their children: Stephanie (Bret) Gailey, Clinton; Jennifer (Nathan) Ward, Idaho Falls, ID; Michael (Amy) Syracuse; David (Kathy) Upper Saddle River, NJ; Dennis (Cortney) Syracuse; Steven (Natalie) Syracuse; 20 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.  She has two surviving brothers, Jay Bennett, Smithfield, UT; Ellery Bennett (LeAnne) Battleground, WA; brother-in-law Rich (Connie) Murphy, Holliday; sister-in-law Marilyn (Wendell) Bennett, Bountiful.

She is preceded in death by her parents, George, and Norma Bennett; her brothers Wendell Bennett, Scott Bennett, Floyd Bennett, Val Bennett, and her sister Connie Bennett Murphy; grandson Daniel Bouy; and her father and mother-in-law, Ralph and Barbara Bouy.

As a family we would like to thank all the wonderful healthcare workers who served as angels on earth as they so lovingly attended Dorothy during the past few difficult, painful weeks.  Dorothy was very appreciative of each of them and wanted to be sure to let them know how thankful she was for them.

Dad’s last Valentine’s Day card to mom just 2 days before her passing was this sweet message:

“Love at first sight brought this beautiful young lady into my life forever.   I’ll never forget the feeling I had when you walked by that morning in high school!  I still have that feeling every time I see you.  Thank you for being my forever wife and friend.  You are my Valentine forever!  I love you, always have, always will.”

Love Glen 

Mom, we love you always, forever, and no matter what!
