Annette Eldredge Dugan, our beloved mother, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on September 19, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born on October 3, 1938, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Grant and Estelle Eldredge. \r\n\r\nAnn was part of the first graduating class at Olympus High School. After graduation, she and her best friend, Arleen Stillman, adventured to Yellowstone National Park where they worked for the summer. After returning to Salt Lake City, she met her sweetheart, Robert "Bob" Dugan, and they were married on June 9, 1960. Together, Ann and Bob opened The Mushroom Company Restaurant in Salt Lake City. After many years in the restaurant business, Ann went to work for Mervyns. She loved working in the fine jewelry department and enjoyed the people she worked with. \r\n\r\nShe had a love for old cars, shopping, golfing, and camping with family and friends—but above all else, she loved life and her family the most. After retiring from Mervyns, she and Bob moved to Ivins, Utah. While she missed her girls and family, she loved her desert home, daily walks (rain or shine) and spending time with her southern friends.\r\n\r\nAnn is survived by her lovely daughters, Shannon (Rick) Nielsen, Shelly (Michael) Thompson, and Andrea "Andie" Rasmussen (Dave Skrocki); grandchildren, Ciara and Bret (Julia) Nielsen, Soren and Ian Rasmussen; and great-grandchildren, Wyatt and Olivia Nielsen. She is also survived by her siblings, John Eldredge, Gloria Allan, Steve Eldredge, Scott Eldredge, and Debbie Morris; as well as her best friends, Arleen Stillman and Noella Tate; and her sister-in-law, Mary Blain. She was preceded in death by her husband Bob; and her brother, Court Eldredge.\r\n\r\nThe family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Jonathan Whisenant and his team at the Utah Cancer Institute and the infusion center team at the Huntsman Cancer Institute for their tender care. They would also like to thank McKenzie Wightman with Quality Home Health and Hospice for her loving care and support.\r\n\r\nAnn's Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at 12:00 noon at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley Funeral Home, 1007 W. South Jordan Parkway (10600 South), with a visitation from 11:00-11:45 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Ann's name to the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
