Ethel Stewart Boyden, age 86, passed away on Friday, April 3, 2020 in Delta, Utah. She was born on September 15, 1933 in Delta to Glen Courtland and Herma Nielson Stewart.
Ethel served her community working at the Bookmobile and the City Library for 25 years. She was considered the bookmark lady, as she gifted so many bookmarks that she personally decorated with kind words, poems and images to her many, many friends. She also gave away her bookmarks as gift bags to many people for their birthdays. She would never forget a birthday. When quizzed with a date, she could tell you who of the many people she cared about had that birthday.
She enjoyed genealogy research, and traced back many years of her family. She will always be remembered for her deeply caring soul. She also loved her cats.
Ethel was the last of the intermediate Stewart family. She made close ties to her many friends and others from the church ward and through town. She enjoyed their company and was very grateful for their friendship
