SOCIETY OBIT Sheree Harward

Sheree J. Harward

1939 – 2024

Salina, Utah – On Sunday, February 18, 2024, our loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Sheree Harward, was called home by her Heavenly Parents. 

Sheree was born to Orval and Ethel Jensen, in Salina, Utah, January 18, 1939. The youngest of 4 siblings, Rueleen, Gwenyth, and Farrell, all of whom she adored. They were raised by sweet and tender parents in Redmond, Utah.  Sheree graduated from North Sevier High School, class of 1957.

Sheron Clyde Harward and Sheree Jensen were married May 25, 1957. They were later sealed for time and all eternity in the Manti, Utah Temple on October 11, 1960. They were blessed with two beautiful children, Holly and Shane. Sheree’s love for her husband, Sheron, transcends the boundaries of earthly existence. Their connection, now reunited beyond the veil, speaks to a love that endures even in the face of physical separation. May their love story continue to inspire and bring solace to those who mourn their earthly departure.

A beacon of selflessness, she leaves behind a legacy of boundless love. Her life’s narrative was made up of threads of compassion and faith as she dedicated herself entirely to caring for others. Whether it was her family, friends, or even the many cats she welcomed to her home, Sheree’s heart knew no bounds in its capacity to love and sacrifice. Her memory is a testament to the profound impact one can make through a life lived in service to others. She was the “best grandma in the world” and invested every ounce of herself in her grandchildren and great grandchildren’s lives. 

Sheree was an active and involved member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where she served in many callings and directed many memorable programs. Sheree worked for over 15 years as an ordinance worker in the Manti Temple, where she continued to dedicate her time to the Gospel and to others. 

As her heavenly journey begins, perhaps with a friendly debate at the pearly gates on whether the hairdressers in Heaven do a perm as well as Christine, we recognize the gift she was to so many. Her family once separated by time and distance, now united in the eternal embrace of heavenly togetherness. Sheree’s homecoming is a poignant reminder that the love and connections forged in earthly life persist in the divine reunion beyond. We know the porch swings in heaven are full, the hugs are tight, and the longing has finally ended. 

Sheree is survived by her children; Holly and Mark Ziegler, of Midvale, Shane and Heather Harward of Ephraim. Grandchildren; Jordan and Jonathan Peterson, Kiersten and Kyler Wheeler and Mckayla Ziegler. Great Grandchildren; Landree, Leighton, Beau Wheeler, and baby Peterson on the way, as well as many wonderful extended family members and friends. 

Funeral services will be held Friday, February 23, 2024, at 12:00 Noon in the Salina Stake Center, 98 West 400 North in Salina, Utah where friends may call for viewing Thursday evening from 6-8 P.M. as well as Friday morning 10-11:30 A.M. prior to the services.
