Louise Harris Stubbs Egan


Louise Harris Stubbs Egan passed away on January 15, 2014. Louise was born December 12, 1922 in Beaver, Utah to Lester E. Harris and Lora Jean Burt.

Her family lived in the East Fields in Beaver. Her father died in 1929 leaving her mother to raise 4 children and run a dairy farm. They all learned the importance of love, thrift, hard work, and family. What changes she saw in her life. From horse power to rocket power and beyond. Almost more than she could comprehend.

She worked in San Francisco during WWII for the DOD. What an adventure for a small town girl.

She married Bernarr Bentley Stubbs on May 19, 1947. They built a home by themselves and with no mortgage. They raised 2 well-loved sons and lots of lambs. They worked hard and loved fishing and hunting in their spare time. Most importantly they taught honesty and integrity by their actions. Bernarr passed away on March 22, 1969.

During the Vietnam Era, both sons were drafted in the military. She was proud to send them to serve our country even though she was home alone.

Louise worked at the Coleman plant in Cedar City where she met Ralph Egan. They were married May 15, 1972. They were perfect companions and cared greatly for one another as they aged. Ralph passed away on March 6, 2002.

She was member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

She is survived one son, Keith Burt Stubbs (Debbie), stepson Alan Egan and 6 cherished grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Bernarr Bentley Stubbs, Ralph Howard Egan, and Eldon Harris Stubbs.

Special thanks to Kolob Care and her special Hospice nurses, Bonnie and Becky.
