Beth Johnson Baugh passed away October 11, 2022, of natural causes. She took her sweetheart’s hand and joined him in eternity. She had prayed for this reunion for 2147 days! She was born July 9, 1936 in Richfield, UT to Reed and Ruth Johnson. She was the baby of the family, with two older sisters, Carma and JoAnn, and an older brother Grant. Later they moved to Logan, UT where she spent many hours skating, on the ice in the park all winter and on roller skates all summer. When she was 15 she caught the eye of a handsome returned missionary who lived across the street, Joseph S. Baugh, Jr., and they got engaged just before her senior year of high school. They married a year later on June 17, 1954 in the Logan Temple and moved to St. Louis, Missouri, where Joe completed his studies to become a dentist. They lived in Kansas City, Missouri, while Joe served in the Army. Then they moved to Brigham City, Utah, where Joe practiced dentistry for 5 years. They pulled up stakes and moved to Portland, Oregon, where Joe trained to be an orthodontist. They loved the Oregon coast and returned there many times for visits. After completing 2 years of school in Oregon they moved to Murray, Utah, where Joe set up his orthodontic practice and they built a house, where they resided for 47 years. After 62 wonderful years together, Joe passed away in 2016. After Joe’s passing she continued to live in her home and bless the lives of others. \n\nBeth was active in the PTA, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, beautifying her home, and raising 5 children. She was a great listener. She loved to read and introduced her family to so many wonderful books! She was an amazing seamstress and quilter! She was a superb cook and note writer. Nothing was better than getting a pie or loaf of bread from Beth, along with a hand written card full of words of love and encouragement! Beth loved to travel with Joe and her family, and also with their special group of friends. They saw much of the world and the USA. After Joe retired, they served a mission to the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, Hawaii, for 18 months, where Beth made beautiful Hawaiian quilts. Her life was full of laughter, grace and love! Beth was an angel to her family and to many others. She finally left her worn out body to be an angel on the other side and will continue to bless our lives from heaven. \n\nShe was preceded in death by her loving companion, Joseph, her parents and his parents, her sisters, Carma and JoAnn, and her brothers-in-law, Spencer Lear Baugh, Bruce Baugh and Bruce Jensen. She is survived by her Brother Grant (Jean), and her brothers-in-law, Charles (Maurine), Phillip (Elaine), and Paul (Ericka), and sister-in-law Deanna.\n\nShe leaves behind her own great legacy: Her 5 children and their spouses, Kent (Stephanie), Cynthia (Kerry), Susan (Michael), Mark (Maureen) and Alan (Becky), her 18 grandchildren, their spouses, and 35 great-grandchildren. \n\nSpecial thanks to the excellent staff at the Abbington for caring for her for the past few months and the personal attention, kindness, and medical care she received from Enhabit Hospice this last year! And thank you to her many family and friends that brought her joy, and loved and cared for her! She loved you all! \n\nIn lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the missionary fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or write a note to someone you love! As she said many times in the last 6 years “Hold your loved ones close and hug them often!” \n\nA visitation will be held Sunday, evening, October 23, 2022 from 5:30-7:30, at the Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 South State Street, Murray, Utah.
