Bonnie Mae Sly Taylor, age 58, from Provo Utah passed away in her home June 1st, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Bonnie was born May 3rd, 1962 in American Fork Utah to LaVern and Etsil Jefferson "Jack" Sly. As a child, Bonnie and her family moved to rural Homedale, Idaho where she lived and grew into her teens. At the age of 15, she moved back to American Fork where she met her Highschool sweetheart, Mikel Clifford Taylor. They were married on the Seventh of March 1980, in her sister Beth's home. She and Mikel were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Utah Temple on the twenty-eighth of December 1987. She and Mikel moved to Riverside California in 1985 where they raised their growing family for 12 years before returning to American Fork, settling down and building their dream home in Provo, Utah.

Bonnie is skilled, intelligent, and ambitious. She achieved an Associate's of Science in Electrical Automation where she was certified in computer-aided drafting and design. As an accomplished baker she thrived as a Bakery Manager. She made many wedding cakes for friends and family. She proudly hosted an annual 'Pie Night' in her home, where everybody was welcome to indulge in her large selection of homemade pies. She held certifications in X-Ray Machinery, Open Water Scuba Diving, and Aqua Aerobic and Zumba Instruction.

With a passion for traveling she visited much of the world with her husband and children. Her adventures took her to the Caribbean, where she swam with dolphins and explored the deep ocean. She enjoyed traveling to Costa Rica, Denmark, Italy, Ireland, and Germany among others.

She occupies her hands and heart pursuing creative endeavors. She has crafted beautiful blankets and decor, expressing her skill, talent, and love through many creative projects. She loves embroidery, sewing and crocheting, and is always working on a project or ten. Her heart belongs to her loved ones, her adventures, and her creations.
