Bonnie Joyce Ogden Romero, 60, unexpectedly passed away from this life on June 30, 2020 in Taylorsville, Utah. There’s no doubt in our hearts and our minds that she had a heavenly greeting with open arms from many family and friends, especially her son Austin and her parents.
Bonnie was born April 13, 1960 to Daniel and Joyce Ogden from Clearfield, Utah. She graduated from Clearfield High School in 1978. She then went on to live in different parts of the Salt Lake Valley. Bonnie was married to Rudy Romero for twenty-two years; they settled in Taylorsville where they raised their three children.
Throughout her life, she worked at Harmon’s, Great American, ran an in-home daycare and most recently was employed at Rocky Mountain Power.
Bonnie was the biggest ray of sunshine to anyone she crossed paths with. She was a lover of all things sunshine, summer, sandals and beaches. Her memorable and contagious laugh made its mark on all that were lucky enough to know her. She radiates love and compassion. She would drop anything just to comfort those in need. Her family and kids were her whole purpose in life, and most of all her favorite title was grandma.
Her heart was bigger than she was. Although, she faced many trials and heartache, she put a smile on her face and remained strong for everyone else.
She is survived by her children Ashlee Joyce Torgerson (Colby) and Andy Jakob Romero; the proudest grandma to her grandson Dawson James Torgerson (3 months); siblings Brenda Harrison (Bob), Kelly Ogden (Marcia), Roger Ogden (Deborah), Danette Carlisle (Jon), Bruce Ogden (Susan) and Audrie Gunn (Craig); followed by many nieces, nephews and friends.
Preceded in death by her oldest son Austin Rudy Romero and her parents.

Words cannot express how much I love Bonnie and how emotionally connected we were from the very beginning. It was such a comfort to know that she was right next door, whenever I needed her. I will miss her more than words can say. What a blessing she has been in my life and how grateful I am that I have had the opportunity to know her and her family.
Andy and Ashley - Rudy and your large extended family and friendS!
