Bonnie Rae Ames Aplanalp
Our beloved mother and sister Bonnie left this world peacefully on Sunday afternoon,
March 22, 2020, lovingly surrounded by family.
On July 24, 1934 she was born to Burley and Verda Ames of Moroni, Utah. Bonnie grew up in
Springville, UT and attended Springville High, where she was affectionately known as “Bonnie
Blue Eyes.” She was proud to be a Red Devil cheerleader.
Bonnie married Norman Lloyd Aplanalp on November 19, 1954 in the Salt Lake Temple,
after which they resided in Provo. They were blessed with four daughters: Kris (James)
Robinson, Lisa (Jon) Beck, Tracy (Bruce) Beckstrom, and Alison (Christopher) Hammond.
Bonnie was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where she served in
many capacities. Her greatest joy was being a homemaker and always giving to her family.
She loved gardening, canning, quilting, and spending time together with her sisters for their
regular luncheons and road trips. Bonnie was known to all for her warm, wonderful kindness,
and for always sharing that most endearing, loving smile.
Bonnie is survived by her four daughters, her two sisters Yvonne (Kaae) Cook, D Ann
(Don) Whitehead, brother-in-law Roger Bown, 11 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren.
Preceded in death by her parents, husband Norman, and sister Marilyn Bown.
Graveside service will be Friday at noon, March 27, 2020 at Evergreen Cemetary in Springville.
We would like to thank Andrea and Jenna of Tender Care Hospice for their loving care for our
mom. Condolences may be sent to Legacy Funeral Home, Spanish Fork.

What an example of graceful strength Bonnie was. I was grateful to be her neighbor.

Allison is a friend of mine from high school and Bonnie and Norm were just like parents to me. They opened their home to me and countless others. Bonnie made all feel love and safety in her home! She was always happy and kind to all and taught me to be kind to others! She and Norm also took a group of teenagers to Lake Powell and it was a fun and memorable trip! She is an angel and heaven is happier with her there,

Bonnie & I have been close neighbors, ,& close friends since they moved into our neighborhood in the late 70's, l believe. I t heart rendering to see her empty home, & know our visits, & phone calls have come to an end. We have given neighborly comfort & support to each other these many years. She will missed!!
However, I am happy for her graduation from this Earth llfe. She definitely earned it. My appreciation to her fine daughters for their attentiveness to her care. Blessings, Dru Smith
