Majken Bood Obituary

Together Again

Majken and Rex Bood

Majken Louise Olson Bood passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 8, 2024, at the age of 86. Although heartbroken, we are happy to know she is having a wonderful reunion with her family and is back in the arms of the love of her life, Rex.

Majken was born February 8, 1937, in Salt Lake City, UT to Carl Bert and Melva Lenore Fernelius Olson. She grew up in Salt Lake City with a loving family and was a lifelong faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She graduated from West High School, and in 1961 married Rex Lars Bood. They both shared a great love for the outdoors, and although Rex was an avid hunter and fisherman, Majken always held her own and had a knack for bagging the biggest game animal or catching the largest fish.

Majken spent 27 years of devoted service working for the United States Court of Appeals, with 17 of those years as a dedicated senior secretary to Circuit Judge Monroe McKay. Once retired, Majken and Rex spent many happy years traveling the west and living in their fifth-wheel trailer. They finally settled into their hand-built log home on Easy Street in Auburn, WY, near dear and cherished friends.

Although unable to have children of her own, she took every opportunity to enrich the lives of her adored nieces and nephews. Many great memories were experienced doing arts and crafts, knitting and crocheting, puzzles, shopping, and hunting and fishing. Spending time together during the holidays will always be some of our favorite memories. She was a wonderful aunt and a great influence; the relationships we experienced with her will always be cherished.

Majken is preceded in death by her husband Rex, her parents, and her siblings Carl, Melva, and Donald. She is survived by many dear friends, her nieces and nephews and their children; all who loved her deeply.

We would like to thank her caring team at the Summit Senior Living Center in Salt Lake, her many wonderful friends and neighbors from the Auburn Meadows Ward, all who were such a special and supportive part of Majken and Rex’s lives. We would also like to express heartfelt appreciation to neighbors and friends, Mike and Susan Hepworth. 

Future celebrations of life will be held in Wyoming and in Salt Lake City, with times and dates to be determined. Please save your flowers for then, or you may donate to Primary Children's Hospital, Salt Lake City, in Majken's name

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
