Barnett, Tammy  
Tammy Barnett Richfield, Utah Coco Chanel said, "Every girl should be two things - classy, and fabulous." Tamara Garlick Barnett, 55, who was killed in a car accident in New Zealand on March 11, 2015, personified that sentiment. Known for her boisterous and infectious laugh, her larger-than-life style, and her fierce love of her family and fountain Coke with ice, Tammy has left a legacy of love, generosity, and humor that will be treasured by all whose lives she touched. Tammy was born June 1, 1959 in Salt Lake City. She grew up in Kaysville, and went to Davis High School. Being the only daughter in a family of eight children made her both indomitably tough and the princess of her realm. In 1980 she married her life-long sweetheart, Richard Barnett, in the Salt Lake City temple. They met while in the marching band at the University of Utah. They had four children who were the center of her life. She truly was, as her late father Gary Garlick once said, "a rose among thorns." Her life and example helped those around her blossom as well. Her home was always open to those who needed a refuge, and she was at the ready with a kind word, a treat, a therapeutic shopping spree, or a shoulder to cry on. Heaven is a little more sparkly, and Earth a little less so for having lost her. Her spirit of light, love, and kindness are honored and cherished by those who survive her: her husband, Richard; her mother, Sheila Garlick; and her brothers: Shane, Monte, Brett, Darrin, Troy, Shannon, and Brian Garlick. That spirit lives on in her children: Christopher (Carma) Barnett, Gregory Barnett, Andrew Barnett, and Brianna (Christopher) Strebel; and her seven grandchildren. She lived by the motto, "Go big or go home," and in the end, she did both. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Peterson family through any Zion's bank. To honor Tammy's memory, please raise a glass of Coke. Funeral services will be held Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. in the Richfield East Stake Center, 800 N. 500 E. Friends may call Wednesday from 5-8 p.m. at the Magleby Mortuary in Richfield and Thursday at the stake center from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Burial will be in the Richfield City Cemetery. Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti. Online guestbook at www.maglebymortuary.com

Burgoyne, Paul  
Paul Christiansen Burgoyne Cedar City Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, Paul Christiansen Burgoyne, passed away peacefully Saturday, March 21, 2015, in, Provo, Utah, surrounded by family at the Utah Valley Specialty Hospital after a two month struggle to recover from complications due to an aortic dissection. He was born in Salt Lake City on March 23, 1933, at the Holy Cross Hospital to Alma and Katherine Burgoyne. His schooling included a BS from the U of U, an MS in Natural Sciences from the U of SD, and a PhD in Zoology from BYU. He served in many ways. He was a member of the Cedar City Board of Adjustments and on the Library Board. He was also on the Board of Directors for the Zion Natural History Association. From 1956-1962, he was in the US Army, including sixteen months in Germany. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Paul served in many callings including as bishop and a counselor in many bishoprics. Paul was a missionary in Denmark from 1952-1956 and served a temple mission with his spouse in Sweden from 1996-1997. While there, he was called by then Elder Thomas S. Monson to be a counselor in the temple presidency. Paul and Marilyn had been called to the Nauvoo Illinois Temple Mission and were scheduled to report in April. Paul loved the outdoors and spending time in nature. He worked as a Park Ranger Naturalist during summers at Zion National Park and Navajo National Monument. He taught thousands of people about nature and the human body at SUU. Always a devoted and talented teacher, Paul found opportunities to share his great knowledge wherever he was, at school, at church, in the home, in the temple, and as a guide in Southern Utah. Visiting friends and relatives, especially foreign visitors, enjoyed his tours. Knowing that it was everybody's responsibility to make this great nation run, he was politically active. His passions were reading, airplanes, motorcycles, skiing, watching birds, and catching lizards. He could even tell you what a coyote had eaten from its scat. Paul had the resources to act rather than simply be acted upon as he went through life. He was always thinking of others first, always! He was a kind and helpful person. We will miss our Dad. Marilyn will be missing her very best friend. Paul is survived by his spouse, Marilyn, daughter Paula Burgoyne Jenson of Cedar City, Utah (Steve), son James Howard Burgoyne of Davenport, Florida (Rita), son Christian Burgoyne of Arvada, Colorado (Jen), adopted son Mvemba of Washington, D.C. (Kunda), twelve grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, and sister, Mary Kay Mickelson. He was preceded in death by his brother John, brother in-law Mark, Nephew Dix, and his parents, Alma and Katherine. Funeral services will be held Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 11:00 am at the Cedar Stake Center, 155 East 400 South, Cedar City, Utah, with a viewing from 9:30-10:30 am prior to the service. Visitation will be held Friday, March 27, 2015 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Southern Utah Mortuary, 190 North 300 West. Interment will be in the Cedar City Cemetery under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary. Online condolences can be sent to www.sumortuary.com .
