Monica McAllister Fielding, beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend returned to her Father in Heaven on Wednesday, July 14, 2021.
Monica was born April 8, 1966 in Kanab, UT to Evan Burton McAllister and Joyce Jackson McAllister. She married Scott Warner Fielding on April 7, 1989 in Kanab, UT and was sealed on June 2nd, 1990 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Scott and Monica were blessed with 3 daughters and 1 son; Lauren Marissa Fielding of Sandy, Madelyn Noelle Fielding Gordon (Colby) of South Jordan, Halle Savanna Fielding and Jerett (Jett) Scott Fielding of Sandy, UT.
Growing up in Kanab as a daughter of a rancher and a school teacher she learned how to work hard and enjoyed being part of a big family and family traditions. Some of her favorite traditions were rolling Easter Eggs at the Coral Pink Sand Dunes, riding 4-wheelers, and exploring the sun-drenched red rock hills of Southern Utah. She loved getting Christmas Trees off of Kaibab Mountain and endless days boating at Lake Powell.
Monica graduated Kanab High School, then attended BYU Hawaii and Utah Valley Community College where she met the love of her life. She graduated from Heritage College of Beauty. She worked as a cosmetologist prior to becoming a mother and would give a haircut to whomever asked.
Monica loved to experience many things and places and enjoyed traveling the world with Scott. She lived and worked from Hawaii to California and all over Utah. Her love for seeing the beauty in all things led her to help others find the beauty in themselves. She has always had a great sense of style and loved interior design and fashion. She cherished her home that she had built with Scott and was always welcoming of others to visit. Monica took pride in her children and always enjoyed dressing them, and as a hairdresser their hair was always done just right.
Motherhood was her greatest joy. She was the ultimate doting mother! Anything her children needed she was always in their corner and defended them fiercely. From traveling to dance competitions and late-night conversations, she was their best friend and forever will be. They enjoyed boating, traveling, and going on family vacations. She shared her family traditions by bringing her family back to celebrate holidays and spend time at her childhood home in the red rock hills of Kanab with her siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. She also found great comfort and joy in the constant companionship from her beloved dogs.
Monica’s infectious laugh, gentle smile, and warm hugs will be missed so dearly by all who met her. She cared unconditionally about others so easily. Her kindness, love and special bonds will continue for eternity. Monica is preceded in death by her parents and survived by husband Scott and her four loving children.
Funeral services will be held at the Crescent 11th Ward, 89 East 11000 South in Sandy on Thursday, July 22, 2021, beginning at Noon.

Hi Scott (and family), I just saw a post of Facebook from some classmates of Monica regarding her funeral. I am SO SORRY to hear this and quite surprised to know of her passing! Monica grew up just a few blocks away from me and was "the other Monica in town". (I am only 1 year older).
Although I didn't know Monica as we we became adults, I knew her family (at least as kids) and of course, her mom and dad.
You never know how others impact your life, but this just makes me so terribly sad. I always looked thru my little girl eyes at those BEAUTIFUL McAllister girls with admiration for their poise and beauty and kindness! (Marcy is a few years older and I always wanted to be like her when I grew up... ha ha). Monica always made me proud to share the name.
When I think of Monica, I see a pretty girl who always had a tiny grin and a gentle spirit, with a touch of shyness. As a young girl, she was always sweet and kind (never a mean girl... ever!!). Something to admire as I always did from afar. She is gone too soon from this world, for sure! My heart is filled with compassion for your family... With love, thoughts and prayers........ from the "other Monica" in Kanab.
I am so sorry for you and your family. I was unable to attend the funeral but you are in mine and Tiffany's thoughts. I know you have a ton of support but please let me know if I can do anything.
Scott and Family,
My heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your wife and mother. I've never had the chance to meet her in the 20+ years I've known you; however, it seems like she was a true "gem". A diamond in the rough. A very loving, caring, and devoted partner and mother to each of you.
Prayers for peace as your grieve for Monica. Sending much love and many hugs for you all.
