Sharon Colleen Gundersen Larsen

Heaven got a little brighter today –as our Beautiful Angel left this world. We lost the beauty of her smile, the warmth of her friendship, the sound of her laughter, the artistry of her hairstyles and the beautiful fragrance of her flower gardens. Her beautiful voice has now joined heaven’s choir. She has always been a friend to the friendless, a listening ear to the discouraged and down hearted. No one loved little children and babies more than Sherry. To those who didn’t know Sherry before her disease, you missed one of earth’s greatest ladies! She was a beautiful wife, a devoted mother and a dedicated sister and friend. Yes, Heaven got a little brighter while our world grieves her loss. Sharon Colleen Gundersen Larsen was born September 9, 1943 to Grant and Marjie Gundersen. Sherry grew up in Holladay, Utah graduating from Olympus High School. While she was attending Continental Beauty College she met the love of her life, Earl, at a church dance. They were married on September 14, 1962 in the Manti Temple. They moved to Grantsville in 1964 and have lived there ever since. Sherry worked out of her home as a beautician for many years, making many lifetime friends. Sherry loved music. She sang with her sisters on many programs, including many Old Folks Sociable’s and funerals. She also loved to play the accordion. Sherry was a woman of great faith. She was very active in the LDS church serving in many ward and stake positions. After Earl retired, they served a mission in the West Indies where they were able to serve the young missionaries and the special people of Guyana. Sherry was preceded in death by her mother, Marjie Calvert Gundersen.
