Jonna Woodard, 51, our beloved daughter, sister and friend, passed away March 19, 2017, at her home in Goshen with family and friends by her side after an extended battle with cancer.

Jonna was very artistic and loved to create beautiful things whether it was online, painting, gardening or in her house. She loved riding horses and taking care of the family ranch. Jonna was in 4-H when she was younger and later participated in the Utah Ranch Sorting Association.

She loved to travel and have adventures as often as possible. Jonna traveled to every state in the U.S. as well as internationally. She visited many national parks on her travels, but her favorite was Bryce National Park in Utah.

Jonna graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in industrial design and was employed at American Name Services in Orem. Their care and compassion made a profound difference in Jonna's life during the last four years.

She was preceded in death by her father, Jay Woodard, and her sister, Jaleen. She is survived by her mother, Renee Woodard, of Nephi; brother Scott (Jennifer) and their children Nicole, Spencer and Rachelle; sister Julie (Dave Kaufman) and their children Amy, Doug and Eric; and brother Jed (Jonée) and their sons Alec and Aidan. Jonna also leaves behind many wonderful friends. The family would like to express gratitude to her dear friend Deb Wright for being with Jonna through thick and thin.
