Joyce Mitchell Bingham, 92, of Mountain Green, Utah, passed away on Feb. 3, 2023, when her good, kind heart stopped beating.
Joyce was born on Feb. 9, 1930 to Esther Louise and David Lester Mitchell in Ogden, Utah. After graduating from Ogden High School, she went on to study Early Childhood Development at Weber State College.
In 1946, Joyce met her lifelong sweetheart, ElMont Leonard Bingham, and they wed in the Salt Lake Temple, June 15, 1950. Their marriage was blessed with four children. Susan Bingham, Nancy Bingham Peterson, Elmont Mitchell Bingham and Lisa Bingham Rampton.
Joyce dedicated her life to her family, her faith and building and running an archery business with her husband ElMont. She fiercely loved her children, 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Along with her husband, she completed a teaching mission in Western Samoa for the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and worked in the Ogden, Utah Temple. She also served in various positions in the Relief Society and Primary, and worked as co-owner, bookkeeper and sales person for Bingham Projects. Through it all, Joyce supported and advised her family through the many accomplishments of their lives.
Joyce was a passionate artist in many mediums: ceramics, sewing and crochet. She loved reading, doting on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, family gatherings and taking her loved ones to lunch. She filled her home with warmth and kindness and we will miss her greatly.
