Our loving mother and grandmother, Doris Stuart McEwan Henrie, passed away August 21, 1994 in her Rose Park home.
She was born March 1, 1921 in Uintah, Utah to Claude Elliot and Ellen Fernelius Stuart. She was married October 1, 1941, in Salt Lake City, to Glen McEwan and later remarried August 23, 1979, to Marshall (Pete) Henrie in Idaho Falls, Idaho.She was an active member of the LDS Church and served as a visiting teacher in her ward. She also gave many hours of service as a volunteer at LDS Hospital.
Doris loved to take care of her yard and it was lovingly decorated with many beautiful shrubs and flowers. Her small garden always produced a large yield of vegetables that were shared with her family, neighbors and friends on a regular basis. She also liked to sew and will always be remembered for her "foot pillows" which she displayed at local craft fairs. She loved and cared for her family and served them in many unselfish ways. Her generosity was felt in word and action and was extended to anyone in need. She was always speaking highly of her family and she loved to celebrate with them at family events and gatherings. She loved to cook and no one ever went away hungry when "Grandma" was around. She won't be remembered for any great deeds in her life, but for the numerous little acts of kindness and sharing that she gave every day of her life.
