Phyllis Bradshaw

January 11, 1930 — February 9, 2021

Phyllis Burnett Bradshaw, 91, devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, left this world peacefully on Feb 9, 2021, to reunite with her sweetheart, Charles Vincent Bradshaw. They were married May 19, 1948 in the Manti Temple. Phyllis was born to Daniel Abram Burnett and Irene Thayn on January 11, 1930. She was the last living member of her family. Phyllis was a lifetime, faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We can only imagine the reunion in Heaven as her family clustered together to welcome her home and into the arms of His love.

Phyllis' greatest love and cherished hobby was her family. Together Charles and Phyllis taught their children that they could accomplish anything. "If you don't try, you'll never know." She taught her children and grandchildren to love and trust in God. Her most cherished moments were spending time with family, whether camping, picnicking, enjoying holiday traditions and gatherings, family reunions, or just spending time one on one. She was unbeatable at Scrabble and word games, as she was an avid reader. Phyllis had a special relationship with each of her grandchildren. Each one was her favorite, and they knew it. Charles and Phyllis created a home filled with music and instilled a great love of music in each of their children. They were a great team in raising children, accomplishing tasks, magnifying callings, and in Church and community efforts.

Her life was a legacy and a great example of love, sacrifice, and service. Phyllis held numerous callings throughout the years in nearly every organization and enjoyed each of them. Her favorite callings were in the Primary organization. Her children lovingly remember the nine years she served as Primary Chorister. She taught many Primary classes, but especially enjoyed teaching Blazer, Guide Patrol, and Trekkers. She served many years as Ward and Stake Primary President. Another favorite calling was serving as ward chorister for 17 years. Charles and Phyllis served a senior mission to the Calgary Canada Mission. Though it was a tremendous sacrifice to leave her family, it was a great example to them. She had a great love of family history and loved researching and compiling numerous family histories of ancestors. She was a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, Log Cabin Camp. Phyllis loved her roses and flower gardens. Since she loved reading so much, she took a part time job working for the Wellington Book Mobile.

As a newlywed wed couple, Dad and Mom played the lead characters in the musical "Promised Valley." This cherished experience helped her discover her singing talent. Throughout the years, Mom and Dad often sang together at church and community gatherings.

Phyllis is survived by children Mike (Ruth), Jerry (Diana), Tim (Cara), Alisa (Bill Bates), and Dale (Jana), 24 grandchildren, 52 great-grandchildren with two on the way, and sister-in-law Myrna (Corky) Wall. She is preceded in death by her parents, Abe & Irene Burnett; siblings and their spouses, Durward (Nona) Burnett, Lila (Floyd) Golding, and Melene (Ross) Norton; her dear husband, Charles; beloved daughter, Lorelei; precious grandchildren, Emily Bates and Jacob Daniel Bradshaw; great-grandchildren, Hunter McCaid and Kaitlyn Crowther, Anastasia Nicole Bates, and Lilly Mae Olsen.

Phyllis fondly remembered how Wellington united together as a community through the building of the red brick church. The miracles, blessings, and sacrifices associated with this building helped strengthen her testimony and commitment to the Lord. As per her request, her funeral and viewing will take place at this historic building located at 47 N. 100 E. in Wellington. Funeral services will be Saturday, February 13, 2021, at 11:00 am. A viewing will be held that same morning at 10:00 am. Services may be viewed via Facebook live.
