Shirley Ann Marchbanks Harris returned home to our Heavenly Father on Monday, December 15, 2008. She was born in Provo, Utah on March 27, 1924 to Leo Marchbanks and Helen Carrick Marchbanks.\n\nHer family was involved in agriculture and they lived in Mapleton, Utah where she graduated from Springville High School in 1942.\n\nHer family then moved to the residence on the Orem-Lindon city line. Without knowing beforehand, she would marry the boy next door, Stanley Ray Harris on May 7, 1945 in the Salt Lake Temple.\n\nThey lived in Orem and Pleasant Grove, Utah until November 1957 when they moved to Murray, Utah.\n\nShe had grown up on a farm and learned the value of work early in her life. Doing outside chores, feeding animals, picking fruit, and hoeing beets were just a way of life.\n\nShe loved gardening and was gifted in growing beautiful roses. Her circle of friends was unending because she was a good friend.\n\nShe loved serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—visiting teaching, Relief Society Teacher, extraction and genealogy work, serving as a missionary and attending the temple often. She was a devoted member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.\n\nIn her later years, she would move out to the “Legacy Retirement Center”, where she added many dear friends, shared her testimony and read the Book of Mormon with neighbors and friends.\n\nShirley is survived by Connie (Ray) Hansen, Bear River City; Pat (Lawrence) Healy, Murray; Cindy (Randy) Richins, Parker, Colorado; Martee (Stephen) Panson, South Jordan; son, Jeff, Boise, Idaho. She leaves 29 grandchildren and 56 great-grandchildren.\n\nShe was preceded in death by her husband; a grandson, Greg Hansen; and great-granddaughter, Kaitlin Thorpe.\n\nFuneral services will be held at the Brownstone LDS Chapel, 725 East 6410 South, on Thursday, December 18, 2008 at 12 Noon. Friends and family may call Wednesday, December 17th at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 So. State Street, from 6-8 p.m. and from 11-11:45 a.m. Thursday prior to the services at the church.
