SHARE Obituary: Leslie Parker Morris

Leslie Parker Morris Les Leslie returned to her Heavenly Father July 21st, 2007. Leslie was born July 12, 1982 in Boulder, CO to Paul and Colleen Parker with a roseate personality that carried her though immense obstacles. Despite her trials, she was never a victim of self-pity or regret. Her hospitalizations fragmented her education; but with perseverance she graduated from Cottonwood High School in 2001. Serving those with special needs came naturally to Leslie, bringing joy to those she served. Leslie fulfilled an LDS mission in Independence, Missouri. Her mission was an incredible personal challenge; she was honorably released in 2004. July 27, 2006 she married Robert Morris in the Salt Lake Temple; the pinnacle of her young life. Leslie was the smiling lid made for Rob's chortling pot. Together, they were infectiously synergistic. Survived by her husband, parents, grandmother, Margaret Phillips; siblings Lorielle (Josh) Bendixen, Josh (Amy), Patrick (Audrey); nephews Finn, Atticus, Miles, Maxx and Oliver; and the Morris family. Thanks to all who helped Leslie at Primary Children's; particularly Paula Peterson and Dr. Marion Walker. Funeral services will be Thurs. July 26 at noon at the Cottonwood 4th Ward, 5565 Neighbor Ln. Viewings will be Wed. July 26 from 6-8 p.m. at Wasatch Lawn (3401 Highland Dr) and 10:30-11:45 a.m. prior to the services at the church. Memorial contributions may be made in Leslie's name to Primary Children's Medical Center. Visit www.mem.com for memories of Leslie.
