Paulett Thurston Myers passed away peacefully in her home on April 12, 2023, at the age of 76. She was born on October 11, 1946 to June Steed Thurston and Arthur Johnson Thurston. Raised in Farmington, Utah, as a child you would find her playing on the railroad tracks and visiting lagoon. She loved her siblings JoAnn Webster, Colleen Thurston, and Dale Thurston, and as the baby of the family, she always looked up to them. LouAnn Mills Ellis, Paulett’s kindred friend and cousin, lived next door to her growing up. She always spoke tenderly of LouAnn and the fond memories they shared during their youth. As they grew into adulthood, the bond between the two remained strong.
LouAnn’s mom, Wilma Mills, introduced Dan Myers to Paulett in 1965. They quickly fell in love and married on March 11, 1966. The following year their marriage was sealed in the Salt Lake Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. For the next 57 years, they continued to learn how to navigate through life together.
Bringing Wendy Rae Slama (Mike Slama), Daniel Alexis Myers (Marie Myers), Amy Lou Wood (Sean Wood), Heather Ann Light (Eric Light), and Michelle Myers into the world, she navigated through the joy and tears motherhood brought. As her children aged, her heart and world were opened to something new and extraordinary: becoming a grandma! Her fifteen grandchildren were the sunshine in her life. Whether nightly calls, family dinners, or supporting them in their activities, she always had time to spend with them. Almost d oubling the number of grandchildren, being a great grandma brought just as much pleasure.
Paulett enjoyed serving her family, church members, and those in her community. She served every Friday morning in the Jordan River Temple for seventeen years. For over ten years she served doing extraction work to record genealogy work. At Christmas time, she would spend days making candy to share with friends and neighbors as a token of her love.
She had amazing artistic talents, especially in crocheting. Thousands of hours and skeins of yarn were used to craft afghan blankets. Each gifted blanket served as a means to show her loved ones that they would always be wrapped in her love.
Paulett was proceeded in death by both of her parents, her sister JoAnn, her daughter Amy, and her son Daniel.
Paulett effected the lives of those around her. Her beautiful spirit and smile will be missed but never forgotten. She truly was a special gift given by Heavenly Father to those who were blessed to call her wife, sister, mother, aunt, cousin, grandma, great grandma, and friend.
