Premo Foianini

Sept. 21, 1928 – Oct. 3, 2018

EVANSTON — Premo Foianini, 90, died peacefully at home on Wednesday, Oct. 3.

He was born Sept. 21, 1928 to Guido and Yonne Foianini in Lyman, Wyoming. He married Marceile Severin in 1954, and they enjoyed 62 years together before her death in 2017.

Premo is survived by his daughters: Johanna (Milton) Taylor and Pam (Ray) Dorris; grandchildren: Curtis (Chasity) Dorris and Kristin (Bob) Demkov; great-grandchildren: Robert, Olivia and Emela.

He was preceded in death by his wife and was the last survivor of 12 siblings.

Premo grew up in Lyman, and then at around the age of 18, he moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. He worked at the Blind Center in Salt Lake City for over 25 years making and selling brooms while also working on his rental properties. Being totally blind did not stop him from roofing a house or cutting up wood with a chainsaw. He was an amazing man and never once did he let his blindness get in his way from doing whatever needed to be done. He also enjoyed fishing and camping with his grandkids and taught us all that we could do anything we set out to do.

A viewing will be held on Friday, Oct. 12, from 6-8 p.m. at Memorial Mortuary located at 5850 S. 900 E. in Murray, Utah.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13, in Fort Bridger, at St. Helen’s Catholic Church, 37118 I80 Business Loop, at 11 a.m. with a viewing starting at 10 a.m.
