SHARE Obituary: Shirley A. Salmon

1959 ~ 2003

Our beloved wife, mother, sister, grammy and friend passed away peacefully at her home on September 12, 2003 after a battle with cancer.

Born on February 3, 1959 to Eugene F. Andrews and Betty Jo Deakin in Murray, Utah. Shirley married Mark D. Salmon on April 21, 1978. They then had two children, Angela Salmon and Amanda Salmon and now have three grandchildren.

Shirley was the middle of six children, Vicki Petersen (Trent), Kathy Smith (Jay), Patsy Savas (Jim), Rob Andrews (Carol) and Danny Andrews (Kristy). She loved her family and friends more than life itself. She had a passion for her work at JCPenneys putting all her energy into the associates and tasks assigned to her throughout the years. The family would like to express their thanks to friends at JCPenney's for their support during this difficult time. They would also like to thank IHC Hospice, especially Wade for his exceptional care and concern. We are thankful for all the help and care Shirley received from family and friends.

She believed that we all have angels amongst us helping us throughout out daily struggles. Everyone who knew her, knew of her beliefs and should now know that she is putting all her energy into her new calling and shining down on us through our struggles. Because of her exceptional love for children and especially babies, it was her expressed wish that in lieu of flowers that donations be made to The Christmas Box Charitable Foundation. A casual celebration of her life will be held September 27th 2003 at the West Bountiful 3rd Ward, 840 North 800 West, at 6:00 p.m.
