Darlene Tovey Thomas, 78, loving mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend, passed away unexpectedly on October 18, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. Our mom will be extremely missed, but we are happy she will be reunited with our dad after being apart for 19 years.
She was born June 26, 1945, in Salt Lake City to Ronald Hart and Lavina Davis Tovey. She married Michael Riley Thomas, the love of her life, in the Salt Lake City Temple on August 26, 1966. She was an active member of the LDS Church in which she served many callings.
Darlene enjoyed camping at the “Little Yellowstone,” playing games, attending plays at the Desert Star, and was an avid fan of the University of Utah Gymnastics which she attended for over 30 years. Above all, she loved spending time with her family.
She is survived by her 4 children, Greg (Kimberly), Wendy, Bret (Jena), Marci (Natalie Liggett) and 7 grandchildren, Alexis (David), Allison, Alyssa, Kolton, Denim, McKay, and Kayden.
