Melissa Thaxton (1971-2009), Salt Lake City, Utah

From the Salt Lake Tribune, 20 Feb 2009:

Melissa Thaxton “Missy”

Missy returned peacefully to our Heavenly Father February 18, 2009.

She was born April 18, 1971 in Murray, Utah to Arlund T. and Earlene Parkin Thaxton. Missy loved her family and friends unconditionally and brought love into the lives of all she met. Her favorites were her “fuzzy” friends, music, books, swinging sideways and bouncing on the trampoline. She attended and graduated from Hartvigson School. She especially enjoyed participating in the LDS Special Needs Mutual activities and Institute classes. We are very thankful for the 37 years she blessed our lives.

She is survived by her parents; grandmother, Ruth S. Parkin; siblings: Connie (Paul) Nutt, Todd (Tammy), Becky (Jason) Kyle, Lisa (Jon) Williams and Tom; nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.

Funeral services will be held Monday, February 23, 2009, 11:00 a.m. at the West Valley Stake Center, 3963 S. Peachwood Dr. (3480 W.) Friends may call Sunday, February 22, 6-8 p.m. at McDougal Funeral Home, 4330 S. Redwood Road and Monday at the church, 10-10:45 a.m. prior to services. Interment, Valley View Memorial Park.
