Lois Porritt Bone, our beautiful, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunt, passed away peacefully in her home on the morning of July 19, 2022, in Riverton, UT.\n\nLois was born in Tremonton, UT, on September 23, 1934, to Ray Nathaniel Porritt and Viola Hinman. It was here that she grew up on her father’s farm with her loving family. She learned to work hard helping top and harvest sugar beets and bail hay in the fields. One day when she was 8 years old, a neighbor on a farm down the road was shooting at crows and accidentally shot her in the leg. The bullet was never removed.\n\nWhen she was 14 years old, a young man by the name of Paul Douglas Bone from Garland, UT, fell in love with a picture of her in the newspaper. She was featured in the local 4-H Club showing sheep. She won high honors at both the local and state fairs. Lois & Paul were sweethearts at Bear River High School. She was a beautiful young woman who enjoyed singing in the choir and was the yearbook queen their senior year. They were married at the age of 19 in the Logan Temple for time and all eternity on October 16, 1953. In April of 1957 they welcomed their first little girl, Lorene. Almost nine years later, in January of 1966, they welcomed their second little girl, Kathleen (Katie). They happily lived in Granger (West Valley City) for 40 years. In 2002, they built a house in Riverton, UT, around the corner from their daughter Katie, where they still live today 20 years later. Lois and Paul were married for almost 69 years. They were the perfect example of a loving marriage. Paul has lovingly taken care of his sweetheart for many years.\n\nLois was the loving grandmother of 5 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. She loved spending time with her family and cooking delicious meals for them. There were many wonderful Sunday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Wednesday night dinners at her house. At Christmas time, Lois would make a variety of yummy cookies and treats to deliver to family and neighbors. Each time her daughters’ friends visited her home, they knew they could find their favorite cookies in a special drawer in the kitchen.\n\nDuring spring and summer she loved gardening and working in her yard. She planted dozens of beautiful plants and flowers and had the most beautiful yard in the neighborhood. She enjoyed camping every summer in her trailer with her family. She was athletic. When younger, she loved to play church volleyball, basketball, and softball. Her grandchildren were so impressed when she hit the ball all the way to center field. She loved to watch basketball and football, especially BYU. Reading was something she enjoyed very much. She also sewed beautiful dresses for her daughters and did cross-stitch.\n\nFaithfully serving in callings for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was very important to her. She served in the Relief Society, Young Womens, and Primary in ward and stake callings. Her favorite calling was being the primary chorister. She was a diligent visiting teacher, loved doing genealogy, and going to the temple.\n\nOne of her most fulfilling endeavors was her employment at First Security Bank. She first worked for the bank in Tremonton when Paul was going to school at Utah State University. Much later, when Katie started junior high school, she worked at the bank at Valley Fair Mall for about 13 years doing customer service.\n\nLois is preceded in death by Ray Nathaniel Porritt and Viola Hinman (parents), Ellis Rhoades, Betty Lou Crozier, and La Rue Porritt (sisters), Kenneth Ray Porritt and Steven H Porritt (brothers). She is survived by her husband Paul D. Bone, daughters Lorene Clauson (Dean) and Katie Shaw (Greg), grandchildren Cody Clauson, Jennifer Quayle (Kevin), Lindsey Watters (Brant), Nicholas Shaw (Brittany), and Scott Shaw, and 8 great-grandchildren.\n\nA viewing will be held on Sunday, July 31st, from 6:00-8:00 pm at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley (1007 West South Jordan Parkway) South Jordan, UT.
