Bonnie Ray Waylett McIver, born on October 11, 1926, in Salt Lake City, Utah, was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She passed away peacefully on, May 26, 2021, in her son’s home in Washington, Utah, where she had been residing since 2014.  While growing up, Bonnie worked in her father’s grocery store, Waylett’s Market. After the passing of her husband, Douglas, Bonnie went back to school after being at home with her three young boys and learned a trade in which she was able to support herself and her boys. Most of Bonnie’s career was involved in the federal government and the defense industries, retiring from the Utah National Guard. She loved her sons, and siblings and especially enjoyed playing golf with her brother Ed and sons.

Bonnie is survived by her son, Jon McIver and his wife Karen Audrey; Stuart McIver and his wife Patricia Murray. Her grandson, Douglas Jon-Raymond McIver, and his wife Emily Schroath. Her sister, Betty Lou Giles, and many nephews and nieces. She was preceded in death by her husband, Douglas Darwood McIver; and her son, Douglas Jon McIver; and her parents, Margaret Hutchinson and George Edwin Waylett.

Bonnie, in addition to being the greatest mother, was the best grandmother and play partner of her grandson Douglas whom she loved to watch and take care of while he was young. Bonnie always said her prayers every night giving thanks for her many blessings. Those who knew Bonnie considered themselves fortunate to have known her

  1. So sorry about your mothers passing. She was a great lady. She will be truly missed by all who new her. All my love, her sister-in-law Sandra McIver Wickens.

  2. Life will be a little less sweet without you in it Aunt Bonnie! Our love to Stuart, Pat, Jon, Karen, Doug and Emily!
    Love Mark and Lynne!!

  3. I loved your mon. She was such a practical no nonsense person which is a quality I greatly admire. A lovely memory was when me and my daughter got to take her on a picnic we were house sitting three summers ago. Had such a lovely time. A grand lady in every way.

  4. I am so proud to say I am a, “Mama’s Boy.” I loved my mom more than words could ever say. Since I retired and began providing care for mom full time, we became closer than ever. I loved our daily rides where she would drink coffee and enjoy seeing how much St. George, Utah has grown since 2000 when we all moved down. I will miss all the time we spent together. I also know she is no longer hurting and once again has a perfect memory. Dealing with her Alzheimer’s/Dementia was her greatest frustration. The strokes and seizures she suffered before finally leaving us were devastating. She is now at peace. Love You Forever Mom! ❤️

  5. No one could ever ask for a better aunt than Aunt Bonnie. I have wonderful memories of hanging out at Bonnie’s house with her and my cousins. She always made me feel special, even though we were sometimes a wild bunch. Our family loved visiting her in St. George and we will always remember her hospitality, sense of humor, and loving spirit. We will miss you greatly, but we know you are at peace.
