Bountiful UT United States

Catherine Seely Guymon 1929 ~ 2010 Our dear, sweet mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister and friend left this earth surrounded by the love of her children at her home on January 31, 2010 to return to her Heavenly Father, husband and family at the age of 81 after a long and courageous battle with ovarian cancer. She waged this battle with such dignity and strength that she was able to leave on her own terms. Catherine S. Guymon was born on January 9, 1929 on a farm called Birch Creek, five miles north of Mt. Pleasant, Utah. She was the fourth child of Minnie Bell Christensen and Benjamin Frank Seely. Her mother died during childbirth when she was only three. Her father then married Mina Merelda Jones Anderson and their family went from five to ten.

At the young age of 16 Cathy moved out of her family home to live with her sister, Wilma in Salt Lake City where she met a young, handsome Navy sailor by the name of Verno Sheridan Guymon; five days later he said, “Let’s go down, look at rings and get married.” They were married in Bozeman, Montana on August 20, 1945. Verno and Catherine moved to North Salt Lake, Utah and had three beautiful children, two sons and one daughter that she loved and adored. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on November 3, 1972 and resided in North Salt Lake until their deaths. Catherine worked most of her married life, but the job that affected her most was the 12 years she spent at Terracor. She loved her job and the people she worked with. But, her greatest accomplishment was being a mother. Whether it was mothering her own children, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, or the many people she cared for in her home. She was very compassionate and kind. She had this unique ability to make you feel like you were the most important person in the world and that you were loved very much. She made her house a wonderful home where everyone felt welcomed. She loved working in her yard and had beautiful gardens every summer. She is loved by many and will be greatly missed.

Preceded in death by her father, mother, three brothers (Don, Bert and Eugene), two sisters (Wilma and Minnie Bell), and her husband, Verno Guymon. Survived by her sons, Jerry Guymon and Michael Guymon; daughter, Bonnie (Marv) Putnam; 14 grandchildren; 22 great-grand-children; sister, Louise (Lee) Smith, and her step-siblings (Rae Christensen, Levi Anderson, Jay Anderson and Bee Wright). The family would like to thank Oncologist Ross E. Morgan and staff for all the care and support they gave to Cathy and her daughter, Bonnie over the past four years.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, February 5, 2010 at the Orchard 8th Ward Chapel, 55 East 350 North, North Salt Lake. A viewing will be held Thursday evening from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Russon Brothers Bountiful Mortuary, 295 North Main, and Friday from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m. at the church prior to services. Interment-Lakeview Cemetery, 1640 East Lakeview Drive, Bountiful.
