Eulala Dora Van Buren - Mom left this life and returned to her Heavenly Father May 15, 2022, wrapping up a life filled with love, service, sacrifice, obedience, creativity… and… her fair share of mischief. She was born November 30, 1937 in Ramah New Mexico. Growing up in a large family she learned how to work hard and spent time working at a local hospital with her mother, Dora Veleen Christensen Bloomfield. While helping and watching her single mother struggle working long hours to support her family, she learned the values of hard work, resilience, independence, and a good deal of DIY home repair.
She met and married Elden Rue Van Buren in 1961 and thoroughly loved watching her little family grow. Her children were her life… until the grandchildren came. She adored each and created lasting memories that will be cherished, and holidays filled with fun. She spent 57 blessed years in a neighborhood she loved surrounded by many friends who touched her heart and taught her by their example. She was devoted to her faith and a dedicated member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where she served in many callings she loved, particularly as Relief Society President and an ordinance worker for 11 years in both the Bountiful and Ogden Temples where her love for serving others continued to grow.
She will be missed by all of us. We love you Goo Goo Gramma.
