Sherman F. Monson

Sherman Fife Monson passed away after a long illness on March 23, 2024 at his home surrounded by his wife, and some of his children. Preceded him in death were his parents Joseph Fife Monson and Anita Belle Austin Monson and his brother Joseph Edward Monson.

            He married his sweetheart of 62 years in the Salt Lake Temple. They had eight children together. He is survived by his wife Dorinda Ann Evans Monson, sister Patricia A. Monson, and his children S. Tracy Monson (son) (Stephanie Smith Monson), Robert E. Monson (son) (Krista Atkinson Monson), Julie L. Monson Tree (daughter) (Randy Tree), Jeffrey C. Monson (son) (Andrea Ward Monson), Bonnie J. Monson Allen (daughter) (Todd Allen), Joseph W. Monson (son) (Sharlene Smith Monson), Matthew V. Monson (son) (Jennifer Farmer Monson), Larry J. Monson (son) (Samantha Monson).

            Sherman was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served in many different callings, some of which were, Elders Quorum President, Counselor to a Bishop, Ward Executive Secretary, Stake Executive Secretary, High Counselor twice, and Oquirrh Mountain Temple worker. His favorite was being a Valiant Home Teacher of which he partnered with most of his six sons and taught them how to be good home teachers. And up until a few weeks ago he still partnered with one of his sons as a ministering brother.

            Sherman loved giving service, and he took his boys along with him, until the service was completed. He was a City Councilman for the City of West Jordan, Utah for 1 term and was instrumental in very good policy improvements for West Jordan City.

            He was an avid reader. He was always doing jigsaw puzzles but usually around the holidays. Since he’s been sick he has done a lot of jigsaw puzzles to try and keep his mind as sharp as he could. The kids would sit and visit with their Dad and when they would put in a piece he would phrase them while sharing a can of pistachios, cashews, or smoked almonds with them.

            He loved his family dearly, especially his grandchildren. When they were young, his living room was full quite often with grandchildren and they would call cousins to come join in the fun. Grandpa would pop a big bowl of popcorn and tell them to go out and get them a Powerade to drink. Grandpa had them stocked in the garage, and then he would send them to Grandma to hit her up for candy. We’ll all miss him now he is in Heaven working for Jesus Christ. But we know he will be working hard to move the work forward.

Funeral Services will be held on Monday, April 1, 2024 at 11 AM in the Deer Hollow Chapel, 253 S. 200 E, Tooele, Utah 84074. A viewing will be held from 9:30 AM – 1030 AM prior to service. Burial will be in the Valley View Memorial Park, 4400 W. 4100 S., West Valley City, Utah at 2 PM

    My family saved aluminum cans to bring to Sherman so he could recycle them. My kids LOVED to save them and bring them over. They took turns bringing them to the door because he would always be so excited and grateful. We went to help clean a few times. My kids loved to help serve and help them. They even did dishes happily! My condolences to the family. Brother Monson was awesome and we miss him!

    Dorinda and children, my prayers are with you. Eight great children came from this family. Everyone to make you proud!

    Sherm was my sweet big brother. We had such a close relationship as children. He was my protector and I his. I so love my memories of our adventures. He was an example when it came to work. He always found a way to make money from the time he was 8-years old. Not a lazy bone in his body.

    I know that He was greeted with great love as he reunited with all of our family who preceded him.

    Until we meet again, dear brother! I love you!!

    My grandpa was a simple & very loving man. He was a rock for our family. He helped calm our worries, & fears. He helped us accept reality & prepare to face it, good or bad. He didn’t sugar coat anything. He wanted us to be prepared with the truth to face our individual trials. He instilled courage in his family & he had great love for them. He is missed so much already.

    I love you, Grandpa. I wish you were here to help me face the reality of today. I will miss you forever.
