Wynona Dalton returned to her Heavenly Father on March 3, 2013, at the age of 76. She passed away at Utah Valley Specialty Hospital after a two-month fight from complications of heart surgery.

Wynona was born May 15, 1936, to Myrtle Marie and Arnel Henry Holyoak, in Moab, Utah. She was the oldest of three daughters.

She graduated from Grand County High School in 1954, where she was very active in her high school pep club and was in the marching band.

She married her childhood sweetheart and the love of her life, Neal K. Dalton, on May 26, 1954, for time and eternity in the Salt Lake City, Utah Temple. They would have celebrated 59 years of marriage this year. They were blessed with two children, Arnel Kent Dalton and Carolyn Noyes.

She enjoyed riding horses, ranching with her father, hunting and cooking. Music was a big part of her life. She sang with her sisters and father at many gatherings. She loved going and supporting any sporting event, reading and crocheting, and most of all she loved being on the mountain and going for drives with her husband by her side.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many ward and stake callings through the years.

She loved her family very much and was always very proud of them and their accomplishments. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her brother, Henry Holyoak; parents, Arnel and Myrtle Holyoak; two grandchildren and 1 great grandchild; and her brother-in-law, Ollie Knutson.

She is survived by her husband, Neal K. Dalton; two children, Kent (JoeLynn) Dalton and Carolyn (Cole) Noyes; two sisters, Roberta Knutson and Cheryl (Jim) Nyland; seven grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and a large extended family.

Funeral services will be held Monday, March 11, at 11 a.m., at the LDS Stake Center on Locust Lane. A viewing will be held Sunday, March 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the LDS Stake Center.

The family would like to thank all those who touched Noni’s life.
