1931 Terry 2024

Minori Cecelia Bouley

May 10, 1931 — April 15, 2024

Minori Cecelia Theresa Naraki Bouley, "Terry," passed away peacefully in her sleep at Creekside Senior Living in Bountiful, Utah, on April 15, 2024.  She was born on May 10, 1931, in Fukuoka, Japan, to Yohachi & Asako (Abe) Naraki, the eldest of four.

Terry was a dedicated wife and mother, traveling with her husband, Wilfrid "Willie" Bouley, whom she married in 1954, and family throughout the world as an Air Force wife.  She met Willie while working as a secretary at the Itazuke Air Base in Fukuoka, Japan during the Korean War.  


She was so proud when she became a Catholic and even more proud to become an American citizen.  

She enjoyed cheering her children and grandchildren on in whatever sport in which they chose to participate.  She loved sports, especially golf, football and baseball.  

She spent most of her life as a volunteer for her church, for the Non-Commissioned Officers (NCO) Wives Club and in civic events before embarking on a 20-year career as a store clerk in the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES).  She was a great friend to many and always loved to greet and chat with new people.  She was a faith-filled Catholic, very devout in her beliefs, and enjoyed going to Mass every week.

Preceded in death by her husband, CMSgt Wilfrid Bouley, USAF; son, Lt Col Thomas Bouley, USAF; grandson, Eliot Bouley; and her parents.  She is survived by children: Joe (Sara) of North Salt Lake, UT; Jeanne (Larry) Phenow of Maple Grove, MN; Ed (Lisa) of Granbury, TX; Charlie (Denise) of Parker, CO; Barb (Jeff) Nichols of Portland, OR; and Toni (Thomas) Bouley of San Antonio, TX; 21 grandchildren; 4 great grandchildren; sisters Noriko Endo & Hiroko Takeuchi & brother Iwao Naraki, all of Fukuoka, Japan.

The family would like to thank the staff and residents of Creekside Senior Living, both assisted living and memory care, and also Ovation Hospice, for their friendship and tender care of Terry. She loved everyone she met and worked with.

Funeral Mass will be at 11:00 am on Tuesday, April 23, 2024, at St Olaf Catholic Church in Bountiful, Utah, with visitation beginning at 10:00 am and luncheon following the Mass.  A celebration of life/memorial service and burial with Willie in Las Vegas, NV, will follow, date TBD.
