Emily Renée Mugleston Bowers returned to her Father in Heaven unexpectedly on November 8, 2020 from a blood clot in her lungs as a complication from hip surgery.
Emily was born September 26, 1988 to David and Tracy (Hooper) Mugleston in San Jose, California. She was the oldest of four children. At an early age she developed a great love for dance, music, and the arts. She loved travel and different cultures having lived in California, Texas, Utah, and her favorite, England. Everything Emily did, she did with her own unique personality, flair, and passion.
Emily graduated from Clearfield High School in 2007 where she was a member of the swim team. This led her to being a lifeguard, instructor, and a manager of Lehi City Pool. She studied art at Snow College.
Emily met her best friend and eternal companion, William Curtis Bowers, in May 2011. They were engaged in November of that year and were married for time and all eternity on May 19, 2012 in the Bountiful Utah Temple. This began the happiest and richest chapter of her life. She and Bill brought two wonderful and adorable children into this world, Maximus, and Arya. Her greatest joy was raising and caring for her children.
Emily is survived by her husband, Bill, her son Maximus (5), and her daughter Arya (3). She is also survived by her parents, David and Tracy Mugleston, siblings, Andrew Mugleston (Kara), Rebecca Flitton (Brennon), Steven Mugleston, her grandfather, Benton Hooper, aunts, uncles, cousins, and members of Bill’s family.
She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Artell and Norma Jean Mugleston, and Nancy Hooper.
