Kathryn Booth Wyman, 84, passed away September 13, 2023, after a long illness.
Kathryn was born in Montpelier, Idaho, on October 10, 1938, the first child of Ralph and Eva Bunderson Booth. The family lived in St. Charles, Idaho, and soon expanded with additional children Karon, Wilford (Sam) and LaRue. A younger brother LeVear sadly passed away at birth.
Kathryn attended Fielding High in Paris, Idaho, graduating in the class of 1957. She later moved to Salt Lake City to attend beautician school.
In Salt Lake City she joined the accounting department of Mountain Bell. Working there she met the love of her life, Robert Wyman.
Robert and Kathryn married and proudly raised three children, Brent, Lorna and Rodney. They later delighted with the addition of four beautiful granddaughters and then five great grandchildren.
Kathryn worked several different jobs throughout her life. When not working outside the home, she enjoyed candy making, baking, sewing, quilting and crocheting. Robert and Kathryn also loved to travel in their RV.
Life changed for Kathryn in 2016 when Robert passed away. She often talked of being reunited with him and other beloved family members.
Kathryn was preceded in death by husband Robert, parents Ralph and Eva, and several loved relatives in her tight-knit family.
Kathryn is survived by her children Brent (Brenda) of Evergreen, CO; Lorna of West Jordan and Rodney of South Bound Brook, NJ; granddaughters Jillian (Donny), Elizabeth (Jeremy), Angela (Justin), and Mackenzie (Christophe); and great grandchildren Calianna, Adley, Sadie, Jackson and Collins.
A celebration of Kathryn’s life will be held Friday, September 22 at Larkin Sunset Gardens in Sandy, with a family viewing at noon followed by a graveside service at 1:00PM.

Kathryn was our neighbor for 15+ years. She was such a delight! Making candies for us was her pleasure and ours! They were sooooooo good! Peter loved his visits with Kathryn just talking and reminiscing about Bob. Bob was Peter’s mentor and friend. We will miss them both dearly! ❤️❤️❤️
Dear Wyman Family,
It is with deep regret to read of the loss of your dear mom. The Wyman family has always meant so much to our family. We have such wonderful memories of growing up with you our dear neighbors and friends. Your mom would always get such a kick out of, and mimic Nic ( elementary) coming over to ask if Rodney (high school) could play. (And Rodney would always be so sweet to him and oblige.)
Kathryn left an amazing legacy in her children. We cherish and feel lucky to have had Rodney and Lorna and your mom and dad in our lives.
Sending love and strength to you. Xoxo
I absolutely loved your Mom! She was always so kind, thoughtful and full of smiles whenever I had the chance to be around her. She was very talented and I enjoyed seeing the beautiful things she created and delicious food she made. I’m so sorry for your loss. Lots of hugs to you all!
