Harriett Marie Parry Millburn, age 48, of Sandy, died at her home Monday, May 20, 1996, following a two year battle with cancer.
She was born August 18, 1947, in Provo, Utah, to John (Jack) and Lois Parry. She grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and graduated from Idaho Falls High School. She married Ronald R.

She received a Paralegal Degree from Westminster College in 1990, and for the past six years has been employed in the clerk's office of the U.S. Federal Court.
