MORGAN – Glenn Merlin Allgood passed away on October 17, 2014 at his home in Morgan, Utah. He was born and raised in Salt Lake, Utah on February 7, 1937 to Ernest William and Emily Theresa Dennis Allgood. He graduated from Jordan High School.
JoAnn Toone Allgood passed away on October 18, 2014 in her home in Morgan, Utah. She was born and raised in Croydon, Utah on June 27, 1939 to Newton Amos and June Brooks Toone. She graduated from Morgan High School.
At age 16, Glenn went to the Lost Creek area on a fishing trip; he met Claude Toone from Croydon and worked for him that summer (JoAnn was 14 at the time). Three years later he invited her on a date. They were married on July 23, 1957 in Croydon, Utah. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple.
They settled in Morgan where they raised eight children – Scot (Julie), Teresa (Dale) Lake, Lynne (Scott) Robinson, Dale (Kristy), Mary Ann Barnett, Kathy Bigler, Dave (April), and Angie (Blaine) Whimpey. They have 30 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
They were active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where both served in many callings. Together they served as Church Service Missionaries for Inner City Project in Ogden, Utah.
JoAnn was a stay at home mom while her children were little and did day care for many families. She delivered the newspaper for many years. As her children got older she drove school bus for Morgan County School District; she drove bus for over 17 years.
Glenn worked at Hercules, Marquardt, Bacchus and Tucker’s Texaco. He later leased the Texaco and Chevron gas stations in Morgan. He was the Animal Control Officer for Morgan County for many years. He also drove school bus for Morgan County for over 27 years. He was owner/operator of Glenn’s Towing working right up to the day of his diagnosis.
They were together in many of the things they did. They both loved their bus kids like their own and supported them in sports, mission farewell/homecomings, wedding receptions, and anything they were involved in. They were both EMT’s for Morgan County for many years.
Once they both retired from driving school bus they were always together on the wrecker; they were never far from each other. They were both home bodies and did not travel far from Morgan unless it was on the wrecker.
Their lives were dedicated to serving others. They took care of many elderly neighbors, friends, and family members. They opened their home many times to stranded travelers offering a place to stay or eat.
Glenn loved to tease, skip and sing; he always had to be busy. JoAnn stayed busy with her knitting; many people are the recipients of her dishcloths.
Their motto was “In as much as you have done it unto the least of these my brethren you have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40) and they believed in paying it forward.
They are preceded in death by their parents; granddaughter, Casey; and Glenn’s brothers, Thomas, Ernest, Ron; and sister Karen. They are survived by their children; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; JoAnn’s brother, Sherm Toone; and Glenn’s brothers, Eldon, Dennis and Robbin.
Joint funeral services will be held on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 11 am at the Field Street LDS Chapel, 240 S Field St, Morgan, Utah. Friends may visit with family at the Field Street LDS Church on Tuesday from 6 to 8 pm and on Wednesday from 9:30 to 10:30 am.
