1947 ~ 2013|
Connie Lucille Harrison was called home on April 30, 2013, concluding a gracious battle with cancer. She was born to Vern and Violet Cameron in Salt Lake City on March 31, 1947. Connie married her "Knight in Shining Armor," Peter D. Harrison on May 21, 1981 in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. They have six beautiful children, fourteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Connie was a gracious angel who illuminated everything she touched. She was a dedicated peacemaker who was simply not capable of putting herself first. Instead, she lived by the first and greatest commandment, loving her God and her neighbor as herself. As far as she was concerned, there were no bad people if you gave them a chance.
Connie's family meant everything to her. She loved nothing more than spending time with her children and grandchildren, including many lost souls who became her acquired children over the years. Above all, she loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The high point of her life was serving a mission with her eternal companion, where she made many lifelong friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents and a brother. She is succeeded by her brother, John L. Cameron, husband, Peter D. Harrison, her children, Lori (Burton) Holt, Lisa (Cabot) Jennings, Michael (Nicole) Harrison, Kimberly (J. Rand) Farr, Lindsay (Tim) Jaroch and Jordan Harrison.
Funeral services will be held at the Sandy Utah Cottonwood Creek Stake Center, 1535 E. Creek Road at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. Friends and family may visit Friday evening from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Mountain View Mortuary, 3115 East Bengal Boulevard. Friends may also call one hour prior to services.
