On April 14, 2014 LaRee Anderson left this life with family by her side at Moab Regional Hospital. She was born in Cardston, Alberta, Canada, on May 17, 1930, to James H. and Sarah Ellen Thomson. She was the twin sister of Marie Thomson.

She was preceded in death by her father, James, mother, Ellen, sister Marie, son, Russell Anderson, ex-husband George Smith and ex-husband Robert (Bob) Anderson.

LaRee is survived by brother, Clarence (Kristin) Thomson, Delta, Colo.; children, Ron (Kay) Smith, Ponca City, Okla., Gail (Wade) Young, Casa Grande, Ariz., Linda (Jim) Charles, Moab, Utah, Shelly (Richard) Lemon, Gunnison, Utah, Chris Anderson and Gayle Anderson, Moab, Utah.

She is also survived by 16 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great-grandchild; and her best friend, Sara Ann Cundall.

LaRee was very proud of her family. She always had pictures to show off or talked about her family to anyone who wanted to listen. She loved life. Even through her fight with cancer she didn’t let it get her down or stop her from doing the things she wanted to do.

She loved the Lord, and even though she was sad to be leaving this life, she was rejoicing in being with God.

She will be deeply missed by those who knew her. Rest in Peace.
