Obituary for Ilona Morgan Holyoak

Ilona Morgan Holyoak, age 91, passed away on May 28, 2018 in Salt Lake City, from causes incident to age.
Ilona was born on February 24, 1927 in Beaver, Utah to Kent and Claudia Morgan. She married James T. Holyoak on Nov. 23, 1946 in the St. George Temple. Ilona and Jim moved from Utah to Las Vegas in 1949 for Jim’s job as a train dispatcher for the Union Pacific Railroad. They lived in Las Vegas until 1967, when Jim was transferred to Salt Lake City, where Ilona lived for the rest of her life.
Ilona was a meticulous homemaker who devoted her life to her husband and her boys. She had an uncanny knack for remembering everyone’s birthdays, anniversaries and other important occasions. She loved nothing more than spending time with family and always wanted to know what was happening in their lives. She crocheted beautiful baby blankets for each grandchild. She was crowned the Beaver Race Meet Queen in 1944 and never lost touch with her southern Utah roots. Ilona was active in the LDS church, serving in ward and stake positions in the Young Women organization. Ilona and Jim volunteered for several years in the member locator department at the Church Office Building.
Ilona is survived by her husband, Jim, her sons, Gary (Kathy) and Bill (Linda), her dear sister, Glenna Osborn, and by 12 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her oldest son, Alan, and Alan’s wife, Blake Jones Holyoak, and by her parents and 6 siblings.
A viewing will be held on Friday, June 1, 2018, at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary located at 4760 S. State St. in Murray from 5:00-7:00 p.m., with viewing and funeral to follow the next day at Hyland Lake Ward at 981 East Revere Circle, just north of 5600 South in Murray. Funeral will be at 11:00 a.m. with viewing one hour prior. Burial will be at Murray City Cemetery.
