November 15, 1955 – January 20, 2023
Our beautiful mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Bonnie Dixon Morrill, passed away at home on January 20, 2023. She was born on November 15, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Leonard L. (Roy) and Mary Lou Averett Dixon. "Bonnie Bee" was the cutest little girl, who loved kitty cats and had them throughout her life. She graduated from Olympus High School in 1974. She met Tom Hampshire and together they had a son, Brandon, who was the love of Bonnie's life. Tom was taken too soon as a result of a tragic car accident. Bonnie worked hard as a single mom to provide for her and her son. She was also like a second mom to Travis Hampshire, whom she loved. Bonnie expressed her love so openly and freely, and ended every phone call with "Love you!" She adored her precious granddaughter, Brooklyn, and had many cherished friends. She had an especially close relationship with her Aunt Pam. She married Rick Morrill in 2010, and though they later parted, they remained close friends. Bonnie had a beautiful smile and sparkling blue eyes, and she was exceptionally thoughtful, loving, and kind. She loved writing poetry, and was a deeply spiritual person. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She is survived by her son, Brandon Paul Hampshire (Patti); granddaughter Brooklyn Monroe Hampshire; sisters Sherry Staten, Linda Brewer (Doug), Debbie Olson, and Lori Kirk; and brother Mark Dixon. Bonnie is also survived by her sweet little furry companions, Barley and Elsa. Bonnie was dearly loved by many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, and recently by her brother-in-law, Preston Kirk. Time to "paws and relax," dear Bon-Bon. Until we meet again. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2023 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the Forestview Ward building located at 1111 Charlton Ave in Salt Lake City. Please dress casually.See more See Less
