Marian Lucille Harrison, age 61, suffered a fatal car accident on September 10, 2017, in South Jordan, Utah.


She was born September 13, 1955, and was the daughter of Eddie Roy and Irma Harrison. She was a long-time resident of Dothan, Alabama, and lived in South Jordan, Utah, for the last two years. She was a registered nurse and worked at Southeast Alabama Medical Center for twenty-three years and University of Utah Hospital for the last two years. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was loved by all those who knew her and was always willing to help anyone in need.


Marian served a two-year mission in Spain and was fluent in Spanish. Marian attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. She received her B.S in Nursing from Troy University. She worked in several aspects of nursing including critical care, travel nursing, cardiac nursing, and case management. Throughout her lifetime, she served in several callings in different organizations of her church, such as Primary, Young Women, Seminary, and Relief Society.


She was very talented and loved sharing those talents. She cooked, arranged flowers, painted ceramics, and baked cakes, including wedding cakes.  She loved to shop, especially for others, and couldn’t resist a sale. When others have shared memories of Marian, almost all include Marian giving, buying, or making them something. She loved to take care of others; she even moved in to care for her parents during the last years of their lives.


She was preceded in death by her parents, Eddie Roy and Irma Harrison, a nephew, and a niece.


Marian is survived by her sister, Beverly (Ray) Lewis of Ashford; brother, Eddie Harrison. Jr., of Edwards, Colorado; and sister, Cathy (Charlie) Phipps of Dothan; thirteen nieces and nephews; and thirty-five great nieces and nephews.

Even though I worked in the same department at University Hospital with Marian, due to our job responsibilities I didn't see her very often, but she always had a smile and kind words for everyone when I did. She will be sorely missed in our department.

I was Marian's Nursing Supervisor at the time of her passing. She was such a great person, and joy to work with. She adapted well, to her Utah family of nurses. They loved her, and each was blessed with her kindness and generosity. She was a hard worker, and loved to work at the University of Utah, where she participated in weekly rounds and educating the physicians in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Units.
I am grateful that I got to know Marian for the short time that she was here in Utah. She was a wonderful lady, who will truly be missed, by everyone who has known her.

I had the honor of working with Marian at the University of Utah Health and even though I did not know her long, I have been given a lifetime of blessings from knowing her. Each time I communicated with her she demonstrated positivity, patience, and showed she cared about you as a person. She took the time to build me up, encourage me, even though I never asked for it, that is a rare quality in a person. I will honor her memory by treating others in the way she did.

Marian was my daughter's 7yr old primary teacher. My daughter loved her. She was always so kind and giving to her class. Just a few weeks before her passing she had the long awaited primary class party for them. She had it at the splash pad with tacos, banana splits, a piñata and a photo booth. It was so fun and she even invited my other kids to join the fun. She was and is a wonder and kind woman and I will miss her.

Marian was my partner in teaching a darling Primary class of 7 and 8 year old children for the past couple of years at church each Sunday. She was so sweet and thoughtful! She always had a kind word about others and was so reliable and helpful! I will miss her dearly! As will the children in our class. I cannot mourn her loss because I know with all my heart that she is in a better place. The Lord has taken her into his arms and proclaimed her a good and faithful servant. She will bless many souls in Heaven! I think of her now with her trademark smile on her face! Love you Marian!

Marian was my Visiting Teacher and a special friend. She always had a smile on her face and a hug for me. She would bring wonderful homemade treats to my home. I know that the sisters in our ward loved her and appreciated the service she gave them. Her Primary class adored and loved her. She brought a ray of sunshine with her where ever she went. Always willing to help where she could. We have been touched by an angel and now she can tough many others where she is serving now. We ill miss Marian.

I worked with Marian at the U of U in Salt Lake. My first memory of getting to know her was during a staff meeting. She baked a delicious AND beautiful 7 layer chocolate cake. This was a first for me! She even brought in a crystal cake dish to serve it from. Her yummy treats became the highlight of our meetings. I loved hearing about her passion for "BAMA" football with her sweet accent. Alabama has gained a new fan (unless they play Utah) and I will always think of her when I watch them play. She spoke fondly of all her family and treasured her time with them. Thankful to have known her.

I worked with Marian the past two months or so as her personal trainer at VASA Fitness. I just heard the news today and it caught me off guard. Marian was a sweet soul with a heart of gold. Prayers and love to all of her family and friends. You will be missed. Rest In Peace. ❤️
